We used a Peruvian sweet onion as well, and made your wonderful Recipe #166242. Both these recipes compliment eachother well. This has great heat and balances out perfectly with the sweetness of the onion. Thanks Rita, for another keeper!

I used Peruvian sweet onions, and ate it all in one sitting. Love the sweetness, and the heat! I used less adobo sauce, just loved this and next time will triple it! Thanks Rita!
