  1. If you want to make ahead and freeze leave out the egg until you reheat.

  2. I haven’t been able to find Thai chilis anywhere, any suggestions of where to purchase them or possible substitutions?

    • I’m going to try it with a little cayenne pepper.

  3. This was so quick and easy to make, and very good! Husband really liked it as well!

  4. Wish you had a picture of a Thai chili…I have no idea what that is!
