Does anyone have a recipe for hot sauce. I'm talking about the hot suace that you get with Breakfast Tacos in the little plactic single serving containers. I've looked all over the internet and every recipe starts out with 10-20 cups of tomatoes and then tells you to add a few peppers. I have a large crop of peppers of various kinds that I need to preserve. I would like to make a hot sauce consisting of mostly peppers and some onion if needed but I don't want it to be all tomatoes with a little pepper added. I would like to can the sauce so I need to get the acidity right. Can anyone out there steer me in the right direction. Thanks

Your best bet is to search for Carolina type sauces then that maybe vinegar based.

I googled your thread line and came up with this. Research is half the fun.

Nomadicus, thanks for posting those links. Now I'm thinking it's time for me to make another batch for myself!

I used to make hot sauce like you get in the little packets with the fast food burritos, because that's what my bf wanted. He just was like that. Here's a link to a knock-off recipe for Taco Bell mild and hot sauces.

Thanks for the links guys but I had already done a google search with not much luck. The hot sauce that I'm looking for is kind a regional thing. That's why I originally posted it on the San Antonio forum. The moderators moved the thread over here but I was really hoping that someone who perhaps had worked in one of the San Antonio Mexican restaurants would be able to post a recipe for hot sauce that is indigenous to my area. No offense Asta but Taco Bell hot sauce is really just spicy ketchup compared to real hot sauce. I did find one recipe when I followed Nonadicas search that primarily used Jalapeños. I didn't see that come up in my search yesterday. After they moved my post I pretty much winged it and came up with my own recipe. I'll have to let it age for a few weeks to see how it will really tastes but I think I got the Ph to a level that will keep it from spoiling. Again thanks for your responses.

Please share after the aging and testing. Pretty please.

Hey SnappyBob, no offense taken! When you mentioned sauce in a single serve pack, that's what I automatically thought of because my bf really had a love of that stuff. He used to bring home extra packets to use on his meals at home! You're right, it's just spicy ketchup! But he was a ketchup fiend, too, so that might explain it. Sometimes I would get exasperated with him because he was the type of guy who would put ketchup on Beef Wellington! Anyway, let us know how your recipe turns out!
