OH my is this good. Just spicy enough for us (though if you don't like heat you might want to cut back on the hot sauce) DH had this with our grilled steak and what a pleasure. Thick, with wonderful herb flavors. I didn't bother to strain it as we like it thick and chunky anyways, also used a whole bayleaf that I removed at the end. Other than that, made as directed and couldn't have been any better.
