List of ingredients for Almogrote

* 500 g mature Goats Cheese
* 4 tablespoons of paprika
* 1 whole Red chilli pepper with Seeds

===Type of cheese to use===
Originally, in a discussion with another editor, the oft-seen suggestion to use a 'hard' cheese for this recipe was possibly attributed to a (mis)-translation "Sometimes the Spanish word 'duro' which means 'hard' can also mean 'mature' in cheese terms", however the following quote was found:
''Si hace falta martillo y escoplo para ello, el queso es el ideal'', [If you need a hammer and chisel for it, the cheese is the ideal (one)].
So the plot thickens! If you can shed any further light on this quandary then please do add your thoughts to this, or the discussion page.
===The non-authentic version===
..and here's what happened when I tried to make the non-authentic version!
* Almogrote gomero (TM)
* Many other chilli sauce recipes
* A huge variety of Different mayonnaise recipes
