Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
1 jar Cannonball olives, pitted and stuffed with pimento
6 fresh habaneros -- (6 to 8)
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. Thai chile paste (optional)
Strain the brine from the olives and reserve it. Remove each pimento from each olive. I use the blunt end of a bamboo skewer, but any way you do it, it is going to be labor intensive. Cut habaneros into rings about 1/4" in width. Fold the rings and insert into the olives. Pack the olives back into the jar. Add the garlic and Thai chile paste to the brine and pour back into the jar with the olives. If you can wait, allow this to 'cure' for about a week in the refrigerator. It is really very simple and you could almost say that it isn't a recipe, but rather a technique, but there it is for whoever wants it.

This is definitely not a low-fat recipe either.© Jim Catanich

"Followed the recipe, and it was the best roast ever. I served it to four fiends, and they all wanted the recipe. We made sandwiches two days later and had the same results, best flavor for a sandwich from a pot roast ever." - glen r.

"Just made this tonight... It was really good -I HAD to add bacon though. Fried up 4 thick slices of bacon then sauteed the onions in the bacon grease before adding to give the soup some flavor. Put 1/2 the crumbled bacon in the soup then used the rest as garnish. Added green ... " - amikins
