For Mexican Mole Sauce:

Whisk 1/3 cup purchased mole sauce into marinade.

For Sesame-Hoisin Sauce:

Stir 1/4 cup hoisin sauce, 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds, and 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil into marinade.

For Orange-Sage Sauce:

Whisk 1-1/2 teaspoons ground sage and 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel into marinade.

Jalapeno Firecrackers:

Use a paring knife to cut through 4 to 6 red jalapeno or other small red chile peppers from just below the stems through the tip end, leaving pepper intact.
