My son and I loved this recipe! We are both allergic to peppers, so I left out the jalapeno and subed siraracho hot sauce (1tbs) and I like the fish sauce (1-2tbs) added to it as well. The wonderful thing about Thai cooking is that you can move things around and so long as your proportions are correct, it comes out delish!
This was excellent! I wanted extra sauce, so my changes were an additional 1/4 c salsa, 1 TBL ginger, 1 TBL fish sauce and I didn't add any jalapenos. Also thickened the sauce with crushed cashews.
Turned out very good. I don't see how anyone would need extra spice added to it unless you like extremely hot spicy dishes. My husband loved it, I probably could have added a little coconut milk to tame it down for myself. I love meals you can throw in a slow cooker! Will definitely make this again.
Amazingly, the whole family liked this, which never happens unless I'm making tacos. This was not very spicy. The flavor was not overwhelming at all. If I was just making this for my husband and I, I'd double the jalapeno, and maybe some red pepper. We just put sirracha on ours to accommodate our children with a milder sauce.
