This recipe is an adaptation of a recipe originally printed in the Officers’ Wives Club Cookbook from Clark AFB in the Philippines. If desired, boneless chicken breasts could also be added (or substituted) to the recipe. (This recipe requires advance preparation.)
This fresh red pepper paste is popular among those Russians who like spicy foods. Use this as a condiment to accompany grilled meats, or stir a tablespoon or two into soups and stews, as a flavor enhancer.

The ingredients of this specialty from Russia are similar to the
traditional Mexican pico de gallo salsa with the exception that celery
replaces tomatoes and dill is added. Georgians spread it thickly onto a
piece of lavash (Georgian bread) and wolf it down no matter how many
chiles are added to it. Please note that this recipe requires advance
preparation, as the adzhiga tastes better when it's served 1 to 3 days
This South American paste can be used as a substitute whenever fresh chiles are called for. It will keep for two weeks or more in the refrigerator; for longer storage, increase the vinegar and reduce the amount of olive oil. For a red paste, substitute 15 dried New Mexican red chiles, soaked in water. For a green paste, substitute 10 New Mexican green chiles, roasted, peeled, and chopped. For a much hotter paste, add 5 habanero chiles. All chiles should have the seeds and stems removed.
Here is my approximation of Dreamland's dreamy sauce.

To “mull” a beverage is to heat it with other ingredients to impart a
flavor. We mulled over several formulas before choosing this one with
its pungent punch.
When I write “flavored,” I mean it, as I have chosen the chiles that
impart the most distinct flavors. The raisiny flavor of the pasilla
melds with the apricot overtones of the habanero and the earthiness of
the New Mexican chile to create a finely-tuned fiery sipping vodka. Of
course, use an excellent vodka like Stolichnaya or Absolut. Note: This
recipe requires advance preparation.
Extra stuffing may be put in a buttered casserole dish and baked, covered, at 350 degrees F. for about 30 minutes.
This sauce is an excellent accompaniment to grilled meats, including sausages, as well as cold meats (beef, tongue, pork, ham) and smoked fish (salmon, sprats). You can find this recipe and others in the article Siberian Hot Stuff By Sharon Hudgins
