New American Cooking,Tortilla Sauce

So this sauce came about because I wanted a white or non red or green sauce for my food and did not want a direct sour cream sauce. I found this reference to a tortilla sauce from Emeril's Website and looked at it and thought, eh what the hay! Give it a try. Well it is amazing, so not what you think. It's kinda like a pureed Tortilla soup and it's really good. I have to credit the Big Guy for this one but of course I put my own touches on it. Give it a try. You'll like it!
