Top Review by Jeff #631750

If you dont have habaneros available to you, 2 red chilis should provide about the same heat as 1 habanero, and were plenty hot enough for me. Pincante is a straightforward enough sauce, and this recipe captures it quite well. I suggest adding the chopped produce to the blender and smoothing it with a pulse or two. Lastly, I submitted an edit on the yield because the recipe as posted yields 4+ cups compared to the 2 cups originally listed.
