 NOTES : This sauce is also great with grilled tortillas filled with slices of
 Jack cheese, a few strips of green chiles, and a few epazote leaves (about 2
 per serving).  Heat griddle or skillet.  Put the filling on one corn tortilla,
 top with a second tortilla, and press down on the “package” with something
 heavy while grilling on top of the stove.  To serve, set the cheese-filled
 tortillas flat on the plate, smother with this sauce, and eat with a fork.  A
 great substitute for grilled cheese sandwiches!
