Recipe by The Big Cheese
I have been making this for years, and people always request the recipe. It's easy to make, and perfect for holiday gift-giving. The heat depends on what kind of peppers you use, I love to throw a mix of chili peppers and get the nice heat at the back end when you eat it. Enjoy!
