This is a variant of a recipe someone gave me a long time ago. It's been completely re-vamped and the base flavor changes completely.

I like these for their sweet/hot flavor. You can adjust the hot simply with more or less hot sauce. The hot sauces chosen do not add a lot of their own flavor, they add a sort of 'hot from nowhere' to the dish. [I posted this recipe.]
