One night at dinner I was looking at the bottle of Rancho Gordo hot sauce and realized there wasn't anything in the ingredients that I didn't already have in my cupboard. So, I went to work on re-creating it in my own kitchen.
I like Mexican-style salsas with dried red chilies and tomatoes blended smooth. Chopped onion and mild green peppers add texture, while hot red and green peppers round out the flavor. Everything gets charred in the broiler or on the grill.
