Piri piri is a Portuguese sauce that combines garlic, chiles, red wine vinegar, and oil. The level of heat in this pureed sauce can be adjusted if you like; just use fewer Thai chiles for a milder ride. Keep in mind that the accompanying slaw and flatbreads help to offset the heat. The slaw is also a great side dish for seafood and other meats.
