    Thanks for responding so quickly. I don't cook and have no idea where to even begin to look for recipes!!

    Thank you!!

    Actually it is from El Toro

    El Toro’s White Salsa


    1 cup miracle whip
    ½ cup milk
    ½ tbsp chopped garlic
    1 ½ tsp ground cumin
    1 ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    1 ½ tsp dried oregano
    2 tbsp sour cream

    I chickened out and never made it. When I look at it I end up going to El Azteca and buying it! :blush:

    I've just made the above recipes and neither of them taste like the one we get at Plaza Azteca. Anyone have an idea how to get it? We no longer live there & miss it. Love the Mexican white dip w/chips.

    I am now 48, and had been going to El Toro since I was 9. When I moved from the area in 1986, it was sad, because I've yet to find another place with the sauces. I have recently discovered that the Rodeo Mexican restaurant at Janaf (out by Va. Beach Blvd), is serving the White Sauce, although they do their own red sauce, with Cilantro in it. I've modified the recipe for the Red Sauce to include cilantro, mainly because I like it, but I offer the following as the original recipes (they came from the head cook after the old man that owned the restaurant died), and I hope you enjoy them:

    El Toro White Sauce

    2 cups Miracle Whip
    1/2 cup Milk
    1/2 to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    3/4 teaspoon cumin
    1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1-1/2 dried oregano

    Mix all ingredients at least 2 days in advance, refigerate and allow flavors to meld. Serve cold with chips, or as a salad dressing.

    El Toro Red Sauce

    This recipe makes 1 gallon of sauce, so adjust as necessary.

    2-3/4 cups jalapeno peppers, crushed
    3/4 cup minced onion
    1/4 cup dried oregano
    1-3/4 cup garlic powder
    Salt to taste (about 2-3 tablespoons)
    1/8 cup cumin
    1/2 cup crushed red pepper flakes
    4 28oz cans crushed tomato
    1 cup water

    Puree jalapenos and onion in blender adding a little juice from the jalapenos. Mix in spices. Add to the crushed tomatoes and water. Mix thoroughly. Serve with chips.

    I would also love to get the recipe for the white sauce from Plaza. I have relocated and was sad to hear the Plaza on Jefferson burned down last week. I may try the Guadalajara recipe tonight and see if it is close.

    I have tried those and they are good but try this one

    1 cup Miracle Whip
    1/4 cup ranch dressing
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
    1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
    1 dash cayenne pepper (to taste depending on how you like it, but it doesn't take much!)

    I used the El Toro recipe on here to make Plaza Azteca sauce but made the following changes and it tastes EXACTLY like it! Thank you everyone who shared that recipe on your posts. The following changes that were added were: Sour Cream and Mayo (I thought it tasted way too much like miracle whip..which is should since that really was all it was other than milk.). This balanced it out more. I also added ALOT more garlic powder and took slices of Jalapeno peppers in the jar (which added that bit of vinegar taste you get at Plaze..) and I diced them really small. I know Plaze puts jalapeno's in theirs as I actually got the who stem in our dip one time. I wish I could tell you how much I added but I didn't measure..I just kept adding til it tasted just right. A "guesstimate" of what I put in just to get an idea..I only used @ 1 cup of miracle whip since i was just trying and didn't want to waste it if I didn't like it.so to that I added a real Tablespoon from your silverware drawer heaping of mayo and one of sour cream. 3 slices of japapeno diced, only about 1/4 tsp of cumin and well the garlic.. as Emeril says.. you can never have too much..I kept adding it until I didn't taste the flavor of Miracle whip. I sprinkled in oregano and hot pepper seeds to taste. If you live near a BJS and have membership.. Chips called "XOChital" in a big brown bag are just like the chips you get at Plaze. Pop em in the oven for a few minutes..and oh my. You will think you are sitting at Plaza! Enjoy!! :)
