Uses for "salsa de mani"???

After returning from a vacation to Ecuador, I decided to try my hand at some Ecuadorian cooking this weekend. Part of this was llapingachos (potato patties) and the peanut sauce that often goes on top of them. The sauce was basically onions, achiote, cumin, peanut butter, milk, and fresh cilantro.

The recipe made a HUGE quantity, and now I'm left with a big old bowl of the peanut sauce. I don't think it will keep for that long, and am wondering if anyone has some creative ideas of what else I can use this sauce for? It's pretty thick, and is not at all sweet.

I did think maybe I could put it over noodles and tofu -- it doesn't have what I think of as an 'Asian peanut sauce flavor,' but it might work anyway. Any other ideas?

Oh, and to make it more of a challenge -- I don't eat meat :)

Thanks, in advance.
