I followed the recipe to the T. next time I may adjust a few things to thicken up the sauce a bit. I questioned the amount of red pepper flakes but it was not to spicy at all. I would compare it to a mild/med salsa Read More

The family really liked this. I thought it was good but could have been a little saucier. I substituted sherry for the grape juice but followed the rest of the recipe to the tee. I ll def make it again. Read More
