I initially had this dish in Texas and it had jalapenos in it. I find it to be more palatable without the jalapenos and my friends can enjoy it too.

If you wish to use the jalapenos, dice and add 8 Tbsp. (seeded) with the cilantro, lime and salt. Margaritas will help quench the fire nicely.

I found this recipe to be quite bland in taste. It was way too liquidy and lacked flavor. The combination of ingredients are good; however, like before, flavor is missing somewhere. Maybe I should have added the jalapenos. I may attempt this recipe again only by adding my own ideas to give it a more creative taste and creamier so that it clings to the pasta.

this recipe is a great base to start from.
this may sound strange, but try using a dry red wine and a touch of honey - also, toss the cilantro in with the fettucine before serving. romas and artichokes work great as well, and add texture and flavor.


It was real good! I tried it with some lemon-grass cut up in it as well. It gave it a little Thai kick.
