What’s for Dinner Wednesday – Real MEXICAN Hot Sauce

9 Feb

Why is it real Mexican hot sauce?  Because I asked the cook for the recipe when vacationing in Mexico!

She provided it in Spanish.  But lucky for us, my Spanish is weak but I know just enough to interpret.

It was so delicious, I just had to ask for it.  I am so glad I did because it was very easy to make and replicate.  Tastes just like it did in Mexico.

This isn’t salsa.  Not a chunky clumpy dip.  This is hot sauce.  Meant as a splash of heat and flavor on your food.  Great on tacos.

Or my favorite way to have it in Mexico, on eggs.  Smothered.  Yeah, I’m no pansy. I like it heavy and hot.

Since hot sauce is something most people use delicately, this recipe makes about a cup.  If you like massive amounts like me, double it.

So here’s what you need:

1 Tomato

3 Chiles (I used Serrano here)

1 Garlic Clove

1/2 Onion

First step: chop it all up.  Doesn’t have to be perfect or finely chopped.  Just a quick chop because it will all be pureed in a blender later.

Next dump all 4 ingredients in a sauce pan and cook on high heat for 20 minutes.  Stir every few minutes.

After it’s done cooking add:

1/4 cup water

1/2 teaspoon salt

Throw it all together in a blender on medium for 1 minute.


It tastes so intense and fresh, I won’t buy store bought again.
