Chicken Thighs with Spicy Tomato-Pepper Sauce
Piment d'Espelette is a smoky, mildly spicy ground chile native to the Basque region. It is available at specialty food shops, spice shops and by mail order from Piperade (415-391-2555 or piperade.com).
The cost of each recipe is based on the amount of each ingredient used.
This robust dish needs a red with muscle to stand up to it, like a plummy Monastrell from Spain's Jumilla region.
