A spicy sauce that I use on eggs, tacos, nachos, or as a marinade for chicken. The spiciness of this recipe can be adjusted based on how you prepare your peppers. Always be careful when preparing hot peppers!

Love me some hot sauce and especially one I can use up other veggies in. I like the addition of the tomatoes and of course the booz - I might of added more than called for as I just glugged some in there. I also added some whole peppercorns and pureed everything together. The heat level depends on the peppers themselves and will vary from batch to batch. Easy recipe, good flavor and I will make again. This is one of those recipes that will turn out differently each time and that is no fault of the recipe - much depends on the heat levels of the peppers and tomato size. Do not expect a consistent result in heat. Read More
