   Note: In her column notes, Colombo mentions that chili paste can be
   purchased at Oriental food markets.  This recipe makes no mention of
   chili paste, although it was an ingredient in the Good Neighbor
   Szechuan noodles. Seeing as how I think Good Neighbor may have “held
   back” a little bit on this recipe (they wouldn't give it out for
   years, as it’s one of their best sellers), you may also want to
   experiment and add a little chili paste to this recipe, which does
   have a slight bite to it when purchased at Good Neighbors.
   Absolutely great with unsalted blue corn chips! Have eaten many times
   but haven't made at home yet.  It’s delicious, and sells for
   $4.50/lb. at Good Neighbors.
   From Alice Colombo’s 01/27/93 “Cook’s Corner” column in “The
   (Louisville, KY) Courier-Journal.”  Pg. C7.  Requested by
   Louisvillean Carol Grady, who wrote: “I am addicted to the wonderful
   food available at Louisville’s Good Neighbor Foods Co-op Cafe, but I
   know I can't ask you to obtain recipes for all of their creations.
   Let’s start with three of my favorites: hummus, Szechuan noodles and
   maple pumpkin pie.”  Alice Colombo responded: “I have to agree with
   you - all are winners.” Posted by Cathy Harned.
