    Amazing!!! So good, my wife and I kept forgetting to take a breath between mouthfuls haha. I opted for less sugar (2 tbsp instead of 3), another dash of red pepper flakes, and about 2 chopped garlic cloves. cant wait to try this sauce on some chicken!  -  23 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
