Cliff's Hot Sauce

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars
1k

"This a quick and easy hot sauce my dad makes with canned tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and spices. My mom had to go behind him to write down what he was tossing in. Charring the jalapeno peppers (optional) gives it that smokiness, and the jalapeno pepper seeds need to be in the hot sauce (picante) for the heat. "

Not spicy or hot as all. Tastes like slightly flavoured tomato sauce. I added a lot more onion and garlic as well as a bit of vinegar and used 6 Jalepeno's and 2 Habanero's to spice it up a bi...

This rates a 5 for ease of prep and a 4 for flavor. Personally, I think that it needs more salt. I used fresh Romas which gave a good thick sauce.

This is a very good and easy recipe. Basically the real deal, but using whole canned tomatoes. If you want all fresh, just substitute the can for real tomatoes. If you want green salsa, substitu...

Really nice sauce. I swapped in four habeneros for the jalepenos because that is all I had. It turned out great. What a nice flavor.

Your dad's recipe is great! My advice for the "not hot enough for me" people is to write your own or simply add more pepper. Don't say it sucks just because you can't cook.

We enjoyed this. We will make it again.

Loved this indeed! I added some habanero. Roasting the jalapeño first is key to this being a unique sauce. It’s addictive, be careful. I used it to make salsa chicken and found out that warmed, ...

I have been making this salsa for years. The only change I make is to add cilantro and lime juice for an authentic Mexican salsa. I also add more salt. I vary the amount of onion and peppers dep...
