    Thank you very much...this sounds delicious! I'm gonna try it soon! Can I purchase the pepper paste in a tube, do you think? Might make it easier...

      I do know of red chili pepper sauce, however in my area the paste is not available so i can not give you in-depth information about how it would taste. However if you do choose to try the paste, keep in mind that it contains salt as well.
