      Made 1/4 a recipe (1 red bell pepper and 1 red chile). I reconstituted a chile japonais for the red chile by soaking in hot water for 1 hour, then chopped it very fine before adding it to the red bell pepper in the Vitamix.. My smaller quantity reduced to a nice paste in under 20 minutes. My result was a mild paste, milder than I thought it should be as a seasoning for Spinach With Ground Beef #461289. Next time, I will try a Thai Red Pepper paste with Garlic by Patak, as I doubt the garlic would interfere with Spinach With Ground Beef #461289.
