"I learned to make this on Guam. This is an all purpose sauce and can be used as a marinade, or poured over rice or cooked meat. You can make it as hot or mild as you like. The longer you let it sit the hotter it gets!

fresh hot chile peppers, seeded and chopped
This is the basic recipe, and it's good; I hope you enjoyed your stay in Guam! But awesome finadene' requires a bit more effort. Why use vinegar when there is lemon juice? Even lemon powder is better than vinegar. And what kind of vinegar: white, cider or the Filipino spiced brand? Why take out the seeds -- there's the kick? Add some green onions for color. Don't you want a bit of chopped garlic for flair? There's so much to do with the versatile finadene'. This recipe is limited, but okay in a crunch! Especially when you're so far away from Guam! I'm glad finadene is a beautiful memory of Guam for you!!!
Subbed lemon juice for the vinegar. Chile pepper bring just the right amount of heat.
I feel like I brought Guam to the States, thanks!
