Good thing is that I still have s few jalapenos left and what I just need is half a cup or less of shrimp paste.
Further, I found this recipe online which is really an easy one to cook.. :)

Shakey's Hungarian Sausage with Mojos

I just can't "not" to post or blog about this.  I fell in-love with it the first time I tasted it!
This Hungarian Sausage was so flavorful, it has a hint of mustard, slathered with chili sauce, mozzarella cheese and mushrooms. 

Was surprised also that the sandwich is huge. I can't even finish it up by myself. 

It's mild spicy and salty,just the way I love it!!
