Need uses for this sauce

A while back Selkie posted a recipe for Mexican white sauce
I made this last night for some fish tacos and it was very good, but now I've got all this sauce and no other uses for it. This is where you come in
I'm not sure how long it will keep and would hate to throw it out in a week, but I don't really want fish (or chicken) tacos or wraps the next seven days either
What other uses do you see for it?
Also, do you see a problem with cooking it, as in using it in a fatty?

You're always freezing something
Seriously, you can freeze mayo based sauce? I don't want it to break down or anything.

I think either freezing it or cooking it will cause it to break. Would it work as a dip? How about as a sauce to compliment a rice dish - Spanish/Mexican rice. Or simply as a dipping sauce for bread.

I was thinking about rice, too, Andy, but you think it should not be cooked? How about gently warmed?
As far as the fatty, it would most likely be absorbed anyway. I was more worried about heating up the mayo and yogurt from a food safety aspect. Something in the back of my mind is telling me you can't cook mayonnaise.

Heating mayo or yogurt on it's own is not a safety issue. As I mentioned, it could be a texture issue.

Use it as a garnish on Huevos Rancheros and/or Huevos Barbacoa, in place of sour cream

mmm, those Huevos Rancheros sound good.

Boiled shrimp sauce. I like. Maybe a sauce for seared tuna steak, too. I think I'll pick up some shrimp today. Good one.
