Pingo doce – Tempero para Frango

When a friend of mine travels abroad, I am mostly given a little culinary present when they return.

This time it was Heni and Suhi – and they went to Portugal for a couple of days. And the present was two little things, one of them a Pingo doce product, the so called Tempre para Frango.

Anyway, that’s how it goes, so I used it a couple of times as a spread on┬ámy morning sandwiches. And on tortillas for lunch.

I bought a bottle of it back in 2010 I think, and I still have half of that. And although I do have something like 30 different chilli sauces around in the house at a given time – it is still a shame. But, to tell the truth, I don’t really like it. Continue reading
