Pimenta Moida is a spicy Red pepper sauce that is used traditionally all throughout Portugal, although most typically seen in the Azores. It is great when served with some toasted bread and fresh cheese, or queijo fresco, on top. It is also great as a marinade for grilling meats like chicken as well. It has a tasty sweet sauce with an intense spicy kick. It is quite simple and easy to make, and great for storing as a sauce for future use.
