My husband can consume the entire portion by himself. Still very good if dried versions of the ingredients are all that is readily available. Love it!

Absolutely perfect. Had some one night & kept craving for more for the rest of the week. Added balsamic vinegar for a bit more zing

Delicious blend of flavors with a mild kick of heat. Served with wine and cheese.

I absolutely loved this dipping sauce. i added some Parmesan cheese and Balsamic vinegar to the above and it was terrific. Bottle up any extra and put it in the fridge for next time
