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.
It turns out that five ingredients really are all that are needed to make a flavorful, almost shockingly red sauce that stands up to the stuff in the bottle. Best of all, you can tweak the heat up or down with the selection of peppers.
Hold on to your hats when you dip a chip in this one! Mixes well with Mexican dishes or just dip and enjoy.
Great flavor. Change up the pepper to suit your own tastes. Great gift for your favorite friend.
With the Ontario frosts nipping at our tomatoes and peppers, we harvested pretty much everything left in the garden. Some of those ingredients became this delightfully smokey (and spicy) hot sauce: "The Chipotle Hurt."
