This Colombian Hogao Creole sauce or salsa is delicious. It is found on most tables throughout the country and used on many things. It is amazing on the Colombian bread called Arepa and is an important component to the dish Bandeja Paisa. We absolutely loved it as it has spices but is not at all spicy hot.
