Recipe | Filet with Datil Pepper Table Sauce

The classic combination of peppers, onion and corn pairs perfectly with San Augustin's Datil Pepper Table Sauce.  The floral heat from the Datil Pepper Sauce ties together the richness of the rib eye and sweetness from the corn + peppers for a balanced flavor profile and mouthwatering recipe.
