I had a hard time eating this! BUT my DH had no problem. He just loved it! I boosted up the heat by adding habanaro peppers to the serranos. I roasted them in the oven let them sit and peeled all the skin off. I used 2 very large home grown tomatoes, fresh squeezed orange juice, & for him parsley to replace one of my favorite herbs cilantro (he just doesn't like cilantro. He was sweating and kept on eating. Now everyone just remember I rose the heat level. John thanks you so much! Can you tell I made this for him. Hey! And we didn't miss the garlic that I throw into everything.
