    Thank you so much for this wonderful and easy to make sauce. It’s a constant in our go tos for tacos of any type. I would also like to give it a go as a marinade for something like a pork chop with the bone in??? If add a bit of sugar I’m thinking 🤔

    Hi Pati
    I have been using a similar version of this sauce since long time ago when preparing Micheladas. It was in San Luis Potosi where the origin of the michelada’s drink started. The difference was on the amount of soy sauce and the chipotle sauce. We used Salsa San Luis.
    Your recipe is very delicious and definitely I used for a different version of micheladas (smoky kind 😉 ).

    Hi Pati, I have found different Maggi sauces. Maggi Wurze, Maggi Seasoning and Maggi Jugo.
    Is there a difference?
    Thank you!! Love the show. My family is from southeastern Arizona and the Sonoran flavors that you bring to your food brings back wonderful memories.

    Hi, what can be substituted for the chipotle sauce?

      Well, in this sauce is really hard to substitute the chipotle sauce, if you want to make it less spicy you could add sweet chipotle sauce, if not, better just to leave it out 😉

    WOW!!! Patient, thank you for teaching us to cook authentic Mexican. Your dishes are amazing!!! I had to order the Maggi sauce after you made the Multipurpose sauce to try it. It now has a set place in our fridge, I am using that stuff on everything. Thank you and keep up the great work.

    I live in AZ and have really enjoyed your food travel through Sonora. I’m hungry after every episode. Also, my Mom was an excellent cook with 3 sons too, so I can really appreciate the bond of food and your boys. Thank you, Pati 🙂

    Hola Pati, where can I buy the Maggi sauce?

      They sell it in every single Latin or Hispanic Market Laura; I have seen it in mainstream grocery stores as well. If you don’t find it, then they have it online for sure. Good luck!

    What is the best way or ways to use this sauce? I recently discovered Maggi sauce and love it.

      Hey Paula, you can use it in any marinade for beef, pork, fish, and more. Use it instead of soy or Worcestershire 😉
