I reduced the liquid by half and made this in the slow cooker. Tossed in a couple jalapeños with the ribs and seeds, since a slow cooker seems to suck the spice out of peppers, and I added about a teaspoon of cayenne to compensate. Not bad overall.

Good combination of flavors, but be careful of the red chili pepper! I removed the ribs and seeds and wish I would have used only half of the red chili. It was just a bit too spiced for me. Hubby enjoyed, however.
