Prik Nam Pla

This one is not for the faint of heart.  The peppers in it are extremely hot but (in my opinion) it's delicious.  It's a traditional Thai condiment and very simple to make. 


Prik Kee Nu (Thai chilies)
Nam Pla (Fish sauce)
Fresh Lime juice, optional


Cut up the chilies into little slices.  Add to fish sauce.  Squeeze a little lime juice into the mixture.  And voila! You can eat it on rice or stir fry or whatever your heart desires.  It's very salty and very spicy, so consider yourself warned. ;)

Warning: After touching these chilies, wash your hands thoroughly and don't touch your eyes or nose (or any other sensitive parts, for that matter) for a long time afterwards.  It only takes one time to realize why.  Don't let your dog lick your hands, either.
