SPICY RED PEPPER SAUCE (about 1/2 cup)
¼ pound fresh red chiles, halved lengthwise and seeded (if you want the sauce to be sweet rather than hot, substitute red bell pepper)
1 small garlic clove, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1.In a mini food processor, pulse the chiles with the garlic and ½ teaspoon salt until finely chopped. With the machine on, slowly add the olive oil and process until a fairly smooth paste forms. Serve with pork stew with cockles and spicy red pepper sauce.
