Tuong ot toi ( Garlic chili sauce)

Garlic Chili Sauce4
Last week my mom gave me a whole bag of Asian chili peppers that she harvested from her garden.  I decided to make garlic chili sauce ( tuong ot toi) for the first time.   I'm so addicted to the sauce now you guys.  I love that fact that it doesn't contains any preservatives and can be adjusted to taste.  Depending on the pepper you choose, it can vary from mild to super hot.  It's great on anything.  I'd say you can add it to anything that could use some spice? I love it thrown into any type of stir fry just before taking it out of the pan, dolloping it straight into bowls of noodles, or grilling marinades.  I totally LOVE this stuff!!!

3 cups of chili peppers, any variety of your choice ( Jalapeno, Thai, Habanero, etc) washed and stemmed
