“Homemade for half the price of the off-the-shelf stuff. Just made this for dinner, it tasted great albeit a bit spicy (just how I like it). The cornstarch is to make it a thick consistency, you can add more or less depending on how you like it. Feel free to leave the salt out for a sodium free alternative, it'll still taste great.”
