The recipe card with full ingredients and instructions are at the bottom of the page. There is also a "jump to recipe" button at the very top that will take you right to the card.
When do I add the peppers? The instructions cover every ingredient but that one.
Add the peppers after removing the sauce from the heat. I have updated the recipe card, thanks for letting me know that was missing.
