  1. To prepare the sauce:.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter and a bit of olive oil in a pan. Add chopped onions, pepper, garlic and sauté until tender. Add 2-3 teaspoons of tomato paste, stir around until all coated. Add chopped tomato, stir around, add a bit of water, like 1/2 cup or so to give some liquid. Add lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add a tablespoon of cumin. Add a few dashes of Red Hot.
  3. A tumeric and a dash of dry adobo spice if you are using. Add fresh, chopped cilantro, approx.1/2 cup or so, you can’t go wrong on amount.
  4. Cover and simmer until almost a liquid, approximately 30 minutes. If it gets too thick, you can always add some water.
  5. When sauce is finished, it should be a semi-thick consistency. Add two tablespoons of cream cheese and stir until melted, stir in one tablespoon of heavy cream, cover and keep warm. (if too thick, add a little water to loosen).
