Loved it ! I adopted you for Pick-a-Chef Spring 2007. With this dip sauce the heat is instant! Rather too hot for me but just fine for my DH who liked this a lot. I used several dried hot chili peppers in this and more coriander/colantro. I could have simmered and reduced it a bit more and next time I will, but I was in a hurry and we had chicken pieces that were crispy and ready quicker than I estimated so I wanted to get things on the table. DH says that this would go really really well over rice. Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a wonderul spicey dip recipe that DH loved.
