Personal Notes:
I was unable to find the Thai spice so I used a package of "A taste of THAI peanut sauce mix". I used 2 tsp. from mix and mixed up the remainder of mix according to the package direction and used as a topping sauce on wraps. I also used Maggi Sweet Chili Sauce as a topping. The Sweet Chili Sauce can also be added directly into mixture with regular Chili Sauce.
