Easy and delicious. I included the pineapple and added some large chunks of white onion with the peppers. I served over white rice. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent flavour!! I had fresh pineapple to use up and it worked wonderfully. I just made half a recipe for the two of us, except I made the whole sauce recipe. Served it over brown rice which was perfect for it. Very delicious and I will be making it again, Thanks for posting.
