Homemade Hot Sauce with Jalapenos


I was taught how to make this by a neighbor a few years ago. It is so much better fresh than out of a jar. It is even better when served with fresh corn tortillas which have been quartered and fried in hot grease til crispy.

Prep Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
10 mins
1 quart


  • 1 (28 ounce) can stewed tomatoes

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 3 large jalapeno peppers, stemmed and chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled

  • ½ cup cilantro

  • 2 teaspoons vinegar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt


  1. Place tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, garlic, cilantro, vinegar, and salt in a blender. Blend until smooth. Store hot sauce in a quart jar or airtight container.

Cook's Note:

It might not seem hot right away but I do not seed my jalapenos. So usually by the next day, you can really feel the heat.
