Kerry's Spicy Rice Noodles
8 oz. rice noodles
2/3 cup Greg’s Hot 'n Bothered Sauce or Greg's Happy Sauce (shake bottle well)
1/4 cup finely chopped jalapeno or other hot peppers (remove seeds and membranes to reduce heat)
Juice of half a lime (or of a whole lime, if you prefer more)
1/4 cup salted peanuts, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped green onions, including some of the green part
Optional: 1/4 cup of one or more of the following: peas (fresh or frozen), diced yellow and/or red bell pepper, diced summer squash (zucchini or yellow squash)
Optional: 8 oz. cooked and peeled shrimp
Prepare the rice noodles according to package directions, but only until slightly soft (al dente). Be careful not to oversoak or overcook! Drain noodles thoroughly and set aside. Pour Greg’s Hot 'n Bothered Sauce or Greg's Happy Sauce into a medium pot, add hot peppers, lime juice, peanuts and any optional ingredients. Add a little more Greg's Sauce if needed to coat all ingredients. Stir over medium heat for a few minutes to combine the flavors. Add drained noodles and stir until noodles are well-coated - add a little more Greg's Sauce if ingredients still seem too dry (make sure you shake bottle well first). Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until everything is heated through and the noodles are done (approx. 5-10 minutes). Serves 2.
