Although I do enjoy trying out sauces like this, I'm not much on the use of 'hot' chili peppers, so, in this recipe, I just used 1 seeded, well chopped jalapeno! In spite of cutting back on the heat, we both enjoyed this sauce, & I'm happy to keep the recipe around to make again! Thanks for sharing it!
