I just flew back to college today after spending Thanksgiving at home. On the way back, I got a hot pretzel with marinara sauce from Auntie Anne's. I don't usually eat ANYTHING at airports, but I didn't have much with me, and I thought that would be relatively safe.

Silly me; one bite and I knew something was strange. There was peanut oil in the marinara sauce, something that I assume is safe above all else! I spit it out, rinsed my mouth, and had no reaction. However, this is something you might want to watch out for, since I have read that many of you also assume that "plain red sauce" is safe.

Hi Katie. I once ordered an enchilada with red sauce in a restaurant in San Diego, CA. The sauce had peanut butter in it. It never occured to me that red sauce would contain peanut butter.

Watch out for Chili too! Some people use peanut butter as a thickener! Keep your eyes open!

There is a mexican restaurant in Lafayette,Ca that also puts peanut butter in their enchilada red sauce. It's more common than we think.

I've been told that PB is used as a thickener in pasta sauces. Anyone ever come across a jarred sauce with it?

I've not come across a jarred sauce with PB on the label, but many have "flavoring" and "spices" listed. I look for sauces that explicitly list all of the ingredients.
