How to make Taco Bell Quesadilla Sauce:

It’s really so simple. Just measure out the different ingredients into a bowl, and stir to combine. I find that the sauce is the best when you take the time to evenly dice the pickled jalapenos, but roughly chopped will also work. The sauce will also taste better after it’s had some time to let the flavors mingle in the fridge.
