    Needed more cilantro and much more hot sauce for our tastes. It was very bland before I doctored it up.

    We enjoyed this a few weeks ago, the Great addition to homemade is my pepper sauce for steak instead of the hot pepper sauce!! This turned out to be a pleasant surprise... A perfect side for potatoes and grilled veggies salads.
