    Didn't use the papaya and I used a variety of peppers. This was pretty good. But only try it if you like it spicy!  -  29 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I added more yellow/red/chili peppers.I added scallions and hit it with the juice of a lime.No sugar added. if you simmer the sauce long enough the sweetness of the peppers are released.  -  29 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was just OK. Followed the recipe exactly. Was far far far too sweet for my taste & not very spicy at all. Was expecting - hoping for - a fiery sauce. Very disappointing. It was ok, but more a thick sweet and sour taste than anything else. The smell of vinegar while it was cooking was overwhelming.  -  29 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
