  2. Add spice mix and remaining ingredients. Combine thoroughly, cover, and let cook 10 minutes. Mix again, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  3. While the filling is cooking, make the peanut sauce: In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, lemon or lime juice, olive oil, and vinegar. Adjust ingredients to achieve a pourable consistency, adding salt and red pepper flakes if desired.
