mmmm so good. I did add a bit of my own touch to this. I added 4 cloves of garlic with the peppers while they boiled. I also left all the seeds in while boiling. Then I added a handful of cilantro as well as the juice from 1 lime. It turned out very spicy and extremely flavorful. Read More

I'd originally given this 4 stars but I need to make it 2. Waaaay too much work! We love Mexican food but for the life of me I couldn't figure out what to do with this once it was made. We added 2t to a big pot of chili but the remainder got moldy in the fridge. Read More

If you are looking for a mild hot sauce this is great! Very tasty big hit! Next year I will try with hotter peppers for other members of the family who thought this was too mild (I don't eat hot stuff too much so I thought it was quite spicy;)This recipe was indeed easy I am very much a novice at cooking anything and am learning a lot by mistakes very quickly;) I think this recipe should come with a warning for people like me who don't know anything about cooking: When you boil those peppers open the windows turn the fan on and stand away from the stove (I choked everyone out of the kitchen with the capsacin-loaded steam that came from the pot) Also--I do know you should wear gloves when working with hot peppers but I threw caution to the wind in that respect--I thought I had washed it all off (washed many many times) but I ended up burning my eyes when I got up in the morning! and my fingertips started burning again each timeI washed my hands. Rub aloe vera on fingers thoroughly then wash off the goopy stuff repeat if necessary (it took two times for me but then the burning was completely gone) Read More

The minute I read this recipe I knew it would be one FIERY HOT sauce so I made a few adjustments. I used only one small jalapeno pepper for the entire recipe and added one clove of garlic along with 2 tbsp each of canola and reserved water but the sauce was too HOT! I continued to add 2 tbsp each of canola oil and boiled water to the blender until I reached a level that was comfortable for my family (about 8 tbsp each). Finally I seasoned the sauce with a pinch of salt. The flavor was absolutely delicious!! I've made this several times and used it as a sauce for chile rellenos quesadillas tortilla chips chicken enchiladas...the list goes on. My family loves it!! Read More

This recipe is delicious as it is and easy too. But if you roast a few of the peppers over your gas burner is fine (do not peel) and add them to the mix you will have Super Taqueria perfection. Read More

I was so suprised how good this was. I tuned it down a bit by only adding half of the fresh pepper it was enough kick to enjoy! Be careful when cutting the Jalapenos you can smell the heat. So good it's a must try!!! Read More

Great salsa! This is a little chunkier than the Jalapeno Hot Sauce on this site because of the raw jalapeno thrown in the blender but I like it just as much. It's more like the green salsa that is sold in the little mexican markets but without the tomatillos. I only seeded half the jalapenos because we like ours pretty spicy. It's a great mix-in for guacamole! Read More

This Jalapeno Sauce was a huge hit with my family! I made it when i was working on some burritos for lunch. Recipe is simple and its super easy to make. I also added about 5 pieces of Bird's Eye Chilli (red tiny very very intensely hot) to give it that extra ZZZING to the sauce. We are chilli people so we liked it very spicy. I also added a tablespoon of sour cream to the mixture for a little sour kick. Mixture became even creamier. Had a whole lot of fun making this. Delicious:) CAUTION: When you de-seed the jalapenos please use a glove or something. I ran out of gloves and used my bare hands - BIG MISTAKE as it was red and burning for the entire day! Read More
