Review Body: This recipe is DELICIOUS!! Last year, my husband & I started growing chilaca peppers on a whim & didn't know what to do with them. I found this recipe and made it to accompany turkey burgers, which is a great combination. This year, I purposely planted a chilaca again so we can make some more. Yum!!
