Hot sauce made from scratch. You can find jalapenos at most supermarkets these days. Great with Mexican food.

Altered ingredient amounts. I really love this hot sauce but had to give it less than 5 stars because if I had made it precisely as instructed it wouldn't have been good. The first time I made this I nearly passed out because the vinegar was so overwhelming. I just halved the vinegar and it worked wonderfully for me. We make it all the time now and it's a staple in our kitchen. We eat it with eggs and potatoes, tacos... anything that needs a little kick. So good! - 29 Sep 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. Great Hot Sauce. Pretty hot. Hubby loves it. Followed other reviews and added only 4 tbsp vinegar and some sugar like a teaspoon or so - 29 Sep 2008


Nice basic recipe to build off of but to make it as it is makes a very boring bland sauce thats not very hot and way to much vinegar taste. Will definately use this recipe as a base (starting point) but never again just as it is. - 29 Sep 2008
