A good friend of mine made this for our family and a few friends and gave me the recipe. Wow, what a keeper!!! It is definitely a recipe that will stay with us! It is mild nut you can make it more spicy by adding additioinal Thai chili's. If I have company over I double the recipe, and serve with some steamed veggies. Hope you enjoy it!
