Taco Shop Hot Sauces

Light up your life with this fantastic Mexican hot sauce. This sauce is similar to Pico Pica found on the west coast. I like it because it can be used on any food requiring a little nip to the tongue. I love Pico Pica but it’s hard to find here in the Midwest. Soooooo, after a lot of research, I decided to make my own tasty version. Try it. If you like hot sauce, you’ll love this one. A little goes a long way.

Ron’s Afterburner Mexican Hot Sauce

Ron's Afterburner Mexican Hot Sauce
Homemade hot sauce tastes so much better than any salsa in a jar.

2 cups dried red chili peppers, sliced in half with seeds
1/4 cup dried onion flakes
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
4 tablespoons white vinegar
2 cups water
2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce

Make sure the red chili peppers are the hot dried type with stems removed. Bring all ingredients, except tomato sauce, to a boil, turn down heat and simmer about ten minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Place in blender and add tomato sauce. Blend until smooth.

Easy Buffalo Wings

I think the taste of Louiseanna Hot Sauce on chicken wings is horrible. If a person is going to make cook chickin wings they should use a sauce that is tasty and compliments the wings. I use Sambal Oelek for a great flavor and real zip. Here is my sauce recipe. It is really simple.

1 lb fresh red jalapeno peppers
1 1/2 tsps salt
3 tbsp white vinegar
1/4 cup of water

Place peppers in blender with salt and water and puree. Put mixture in sauce pan and simmer for twenty minutes. Remove from heat and add vinegar. Pour in clean jar, cap and refrigerate.

Cook in a well vintilated area. I use a hotplate in the garage.
