    Does this work with chicken too? I am going to try to find the cascabel chiles. are they small like chiles de arbol?

    I love pork at my base chakra, but I am trying to evolve and stop eating pig meat. by the way, most all pork sold in the usa has been gm modified since 1986 or '96 (the date is scrambled in my brain) but I GOT the Message.
