    Mexicali Sandwich

    Julie from Ponte Vedra Beach

    We used 1/4c of our favorite fajita sauce and 1/4c of our favorite medium heat salsa, NO chiles... NO ketchup .. and we added a tsp of ground dried garlic and a pinch of white pepper.

    Very Katsupy

    I made this recipie for my boyfriend and I for dinner a few weeks ago, he really loved it and said he'd like it again, but I thought it needed bbq sauce instead of catchup. It was way overpowering, so if you don't like catchup and you like bbq chicken, use bbq sauce and I think it would be excellent.
