Thai Pepper Fried Rice

Thai pepper fried riceOur niece recently brought us some thai peppers from her garden. I only had to put one in my mouth to find out they were incredibly hot! So, I only used 3 in this stir fry. I used this recipe from ThaiTable.com as a template. If you like it really hot, add more. I have to admit that my husband and I each ate 2 servings, so no leftovers for the next day. (Darn!) I served it with the cut up honey dew melon from our box.
