Absolutely the very best! Make sure you double this recipe. Everyone loves the dipping sauce! A friend gave it to me years ago, it was from Gourmet magazine.

Absolutelty outstanding! The kids want to kiss the cook cuz its so addicting even tho it is quite spicy hot but you can't stop eating it!MMMMMMMMMMMM If you don't soak up all the sauce with bread, it can be added to a chicken stock soup with the addition of only fine egg noodles maybe a little broccoli, Guaranteed great gourmet taste. Keep em coming CHILL!
