How to Make HMONG PEPPER CONDIMENT
- Combine all ingredients in workbowl of the food processor. Pulse several times until coarsely chopped, but not pureed. (This is meant to be quite salty, but if you prefer it less salty, try cutting back on the fish sauce and the added salt. I use 1 T. fish sauce and about 1 t. salt)
- This is a great condiment for Asian noodle or rice dishes but it's also great as a dip for tortilla or brown rice chips, fresh veggies or on sandwiches. If you want to dial down the heat, use fewer hot peppers.
