Tip #1

Substitute 3 tablespoons adobo sauce for salsa. Adobo sauce, a popular Mexican sauce, is a dark red paste made from ground chilies, herbs and vinegar. It can be used both as a serving sauce and as a marinade. This sauce will give the mayonnaise mixture an extra zip as well as brushing chicken with sauce.
