Asian ingredients such as fiery sambal paste and Chinese chile paste are widely used in the United States and have made inroads into new Mexican cooking too, possibly as a convenience item—a kick in a jar, if you will. This creamy salsa is good with anything fried or cheesy. It must be very spicy or the effect is lost, but the sweetness of the citrus is a perfect counterpoint.
Combine all ingredients. The sauce keeps, refrigerated, for 48 hours.
