I always get this when we get to go out and eat, but wanted to make it at home, was given this recipe (and tweeked it..lol) and it is awesome. Now I can have it when ever I want since I always seem to have the ingredients handy. My hunny loves the sauce and has me make just it to put on his veggies and rice. I like it really spicy so I add red pepper flakes to the sauce as well as when I do the step for the cooking process. I sometimes dont even take the seeds out of the dried peppers.
