When there is no picante sauce
One evening we had dinner at my favorite restaurant in Nairobi - Sierra. The chef used to be a white guy from Zimbabwe. (He has since gone elsewhere.) Anyhow, whatever we ordered came with some delicious salsa. He graciously gave us the recipe*. Ever since then I have been able to enjoy chips and picante - until recently.
Red peppers, a vital part of the recipe, were not available at any vegetable store for the last couple of months. Over the weekend, I finally found some! (This batch cost about 40c.)
*As a joke, he skewed the amount of sugar in the recipe - way more than what was necessary. After all, he couldn't give us the recipe outright! So after a few tweaks, we got it right. The latest batch is the best yet!
