Mojos are Latin American style sauces that are packed with tons of flavor. They are usually made with a hefty amount of garlic and an acidic medium such as citrus or vinegar. Mojos are versatile and are great over fish, vegetables and pork. In the recipe I step away from the traditional mojo preparation and incorporate it into a delicious dipping sauce or sandwich spread. Its perfect for dipping french fries and yucca fries as well as in Cuban sandwiches and tacos.
