Let the cooked dishes cool down to 115ºF (46ºC) (so that you can hold it in your hand) before adding the raw Mexico sauce.

Through that, the raw ingredients keep their taste, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

Another good use: an excellent dip for raw bread rolls, raw crackers, raw chips, but also for non-raw crackers and bread rolls.
