  1. I love this sauce! Cream cheese makes it delicious. My husband is not the biggest fan of cream cheese and can always tell when I “sneak” it in. Any suggestions for masking the taste or substitutes?

  2. Hi, i tried it and it’s very tasty 😋 Was wondering for how long can I keep it in the fridge ?
    Thanks for your answer 🙂

  3. I haven’t tried the white sauce yet, but I plan to. My family loves chicken and beef chimichangas. I add onions and peppers in the beef with every thing else the same. I love cilantro! However, the stems have much flavor in them so they are chopped up with the leaves. Never thrown away. Thanks for your great recipes!

    I made this with vegan sour cream, vegan butter, and vegan cream cheese, because my hubby is very allergic to dairy. It was fantastic! It was so creamy and smooth. I will use this a lot. I held back a lot on the hot sauce, and it was still great!

  5. 5 stars
    Cream cheese is really hard on my stomach. I substituted with ranch and still a super tasty sauce! I use this recipe all the time. Thanks!

    • Hi Kathy! Thank you for your recipe review, I haven’t froze this sauce before, not sure how it will look after being frozen. If you try it please let me know how you liked it! Thank you!

      Sauce was simple to make and great in the chimichangas. I am curious if you can freeze the leftover or about other recipes to use it in.
