Killer Semi- Homemade Hot sauce

Sandra McGrath


My family has always loved hot sauces. We put it on pizza's, chicken, rice, and just about everything.I've tried this recipe a few different ways. It's also good with bread for dipping. This comes out a bit different every time I make it but I often alter or substitute the measurements of an ingredients when I'm short or don't readily have it available. I jar it in canning jars and refrigerate. It goes so quickly and my family is addicted as it tastes so good!
Definitely not a low calorie sauce either!
