Romesco Sauce

When you’re looking to convert the ordinary into extraordinary, try incorporating some romesco sauce. It’s packed with a punch of flavors that will have you wondering why you never made it before.  Lately, I’ve been grilling plenty of chicken wings but when I don’t have time to marinate proteins, romesco has been a huge hit to throw together a delicious meal when you have a jar ready to go!
