About Homemade Hot Pepper Sauce
I love this sauce and usually make a few kinds to keep on hand.
My husband and I love hot sauce, so for us, I'll use a mix of jalapenos, poblano, and now and then, scotch bonnet or habaneros. For the kids, I'll do just bell peppers or bell peppers and a small number of poblano peppers. You can use any peppers in this super easy recipe and add more or less garlic and any herbs you like.
This recipe is just a template for making a sauce you will love.
