“Pace Picante Sauce works well for this, I also used a very hot salsa that I canned last fall, I have made these ribs using both homemade salsa and the Pace Picante sauce, using the Pace Picante Sauce you will get a nice mild burn after eating a few :) --- the ribs are fully cooked before marinating them, plan ahead there is an 8-24 marinating time --- for the very best flavor I strongly suggest to prepare the sauce up to 3 days ahead and refrigerate the flavors in strongly intensify --- these are very good”
