Made this for PAC Fall 08 and so glad I did, I made exactly as directed but my small town grocery store didn't have habaneros so I used Jalapenos. I've made it to use with your recipe #310253 which is currently marinating in the fridge. But did taste it and love the blend of flavors, it made quite a bit so I'll be using it on a LOT of things, I'm going to try it on rice next, maybe as a side with the chicken - YUM!! Loved the directions for peeling the bell peppers - had never done that before and was surprised at how easy it was. Thanks HQ for a wonderful and unusual recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stem and seed the bell peppers and the habaneros.
  2. Grill the bell peppers until well charred, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, cover with foil and let them "sweat" for 15 minutes, then peel.
  3. Put the bell peppers flesh with everything else in the food processor, and process until smooth.
  4. Of course you can improvise: leave some seeds from the peppers, substitute tomatoes for one or all the bell peppers, using different chiles.
