    I used this recipe (minus the peppers) for the sauce on a thai chicken pizza.  -  01 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Despite my initial reservations while cooking this dip, it was very well received at the party I brought it to. One friend liked it so much she said she could eat it with a spoon. Although it is not all that visually appealing, it makes up for it in flavour and uniqueness. I used red thai curry paste instead of red chilis and I used hoisin sauce instead of fish sauce (personal preference). Nice when you want something different.  -  04 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious. A lot of people requested the recipe. If you are looking for something different from the normal old boring dips, this is it. I did add abit more chili because we like it hot.  -  11 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
