      My DH LOVES this stuff! We waited the 7 days before trying it and he says it keeps getting better. I did not strain it after pureeing, I tried but it looked mostly like oil. Made for ZWT8.

      This is some SPICY stuff! I am a big fan of bold flavors though so was happy. I elected to skip straining so my sauce was slightly chunky (and green). I brushed the sauce lightly on pork and veggie kabobs and then grilled on a contact grill. served additional sauce for dipping. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

      Mmmm mmmmm...the 7 day marinating time is well worth the wait! Once the marinade sat for the 7 days, I marinated boneless, skinless chicken breasts in it. I grilled the chicken breasts and served it alongside a salad and bread. It was sooooo good! Spicy but not too spicy. My whole family enjoyed it. Made for the Pick A Pepper Challenge of Spain for ZWT8. Thanks!
