Chilli and Almond Mojo Rojo

This was one of the most raved-about dishes at our first supper club, though it isn't really a "dish", per say, but rather a dip to go with bread or anything else you can think of. At the supper club, we served it with Lebanese flatbreads and Homewood Park pickled ewes cheese.
