For those of you that live in and around the Kelowna area, you must be familiar with Kelly O’Bryan’s.If you aren’t, Get in your car right now and go there!
They have this Magical food called “Pachos” which are these amazing waffle fries with Melted cheese on top. Sounds good right? WRONG. They are AMAZING! What takes them from good to AMAZING is the sauce they serve with them. “Paco Sauce” is like magical sunshine in a jar, that I could literally eat with just about anything (and believe me I have tried it with MANY foods) For my American friends it resembles a version of Chick-fil-a sauce, for those of you who don’t know what either of those taste like… say sorry to your taste buds for neglecting them and make this stuff!
This sauce is limited to Kelly O’Bryan’s, which is a problem since I live in Chilliwack about 3 hours away. So on one of our excursions there I bought a jar of it and brought it home. I had my mom Taste it, because she has that ridiculously insane gift of tasting something and knowing how to make it…
So in all her awesomeness she came up with a recipe that is pretty much bang on. So for all you Pacho-Loving friends out there, here our version of their “Special Sauce” recipe!
Kelly O’s “Special” Sauce (Copy cat)
(Due to Copyright Infringement I can’t label this recipe the same name as theirs)
1 1/2 C Miracle whip (DON”T use Hellmans… it doesn’t taste the same)
1 1/2 T Mustard
1/4 C White Vinegar
1/2 C Sugar *
1/2 t Basil
1/2 t Tarragon
1/8 t Pepper
1/8 t Salt
1/8 t Garlic Powder
* (A number of awesome readers have tried this recipe with honey instead of sugar, and have loved the results, so this is one great alternative)
mix together and store in a jar in the fridge…
Put this stuff on EVERYTHING! I use it to dip grilled cheese sandwiches in, or chicken strips, or fries, or fish and chips or as a condiment on hotdogs, burgers or sandwiches… it’s seriously good.
