This hot sauce recipe is made with just three ingredients: chiles, vinegar, and salt.
- 1 pound stemmed fresh chiles (such as jalapeño, serrano, Fresno, or habanero; use one variety or mix and match)
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 1 1/2 cups distilled white vinegar
Pulse chiles and kosher salt in a food processor until a coarse purée forms. Transfer to a 1-qt. glass jar, loosely screw on lid, and let stand at room temperature for 12 hours to ferment slightly.
Stir in vinegar and loosely screw on lid. Let chile mixture stand at room temperature for at least 1 day and up to 7 days. (Taste it daily; the longer it sits, the deeper the flavor becomes.)
Purée mixture in a food processor or blender until smooth, about 1 minute. Place a fine-mesh sieve inside a funnel. Strain mixture through sieve into a clean glass bottle. (Hot sauce will become thinner and may separate after you strain it; shake vigorously before each use.)
DO AHEAD: Can be made up to 4 months ahead. Keep refrigerated.

Nick Tahou's Style Meat Sauce

If you’ve ever been to Rochester NY, then you know exactly what this is. This meat sauce is used as the topping for the famous Nick Tahou’s garbage plate. A garbage plate is two hot dogs, hambugers, or cheeseburgers atop a pile of fried cubed potatoes (home fries) with either baked beans or macaroni salad, and then topped off with a heaping portion of this sauce. Seldomly eaten sober, my favorite combination is two cheeseburgers,macaroni salad and home fries. This sauce is equally good on your hot dog or hamburger. Nick Tahou, the man himself, once made me a Western Omelette Garbage Plate at the wee hours of the morning. That led me to believe it was the meat sauce that was important, not the rest. This is ‘hot sauce’ in Rochester.
How to Use As an Asian Marinade
To use as a marinade, add this Asian master sauce to your choice of protein and marinade for 15 minutes for more delicate proteins like shrimp, fish, or tofu and up to overnight for pork, chicken, or thinner cuts or cubes of beef.
*I’ll be sharing the recipe for the marinated steak above later this week so stay tuned!
Thicker pieces of meat can tolerate a longer marinade up to overnight, or double the recipe and use as the braising liquid for thicker cuts like roast pork ribs, with 2-3 cups of a beef broth for a low and slow braise in the oven (275°F for 3-4 hours).

- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 cup diced onion
- 2 medium chile peppers, such as poblano, New Mexico or Anaheim, diced
- 2-4 habanero peppers, or other small hot chile peppers, stemmed, halved and seeded (see Tip)
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pound tomatoes, diced (about 3 cups)
- 1 cup distilled white vinegar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1-3 teaspoons sugar
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, chile peppers, habaneros to taste and garlic and cook, stirring, until the onion is soft and beginning to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium. Add tomatoes, vinegar, salt and sugar to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to break down, about 5 minutes.
Carefully transfer the tomato mixture to a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot ingredients.) Set a fine-mesh sieve over a medium bowl pour the pureed mixture through the sieve, pushing on the solids with a wooden spoon to extract all the liquid. (Discard solids.) Let the sauce cool to room temperature, about 1 1/2 hours.
Tip: The membranes that hold the seeds are the spiciest part of chile peppers (that's where the capsaicin is). The seeds pick up some spiciness by association. You can customize the heat of salsa or hot sauce by using some or all of the seeds along with the flesh of the pepper and tasting as you go. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after chopping hot peppers or wear rubber gloves.
To make ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 month or freeze in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
15 Minute Homemade Hot Sauce
Homemade hot sauce recipe that tastes just like Frank’s hot sauce! Ready in 15 minutes and can be tailored to mild, medium or hot – however you want!
- Prep Time: 5
- Cook Time: 10
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: 2 cups 1 x
- Category: Sauces/Condiments
- Method: blend
- Cuisine: American
- 20 fresh peppers of your choice (Fresno, Cayenne, Jalapeno are good ones)
- 1 1/2 cups white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 tsp minced fresh garlic
- Put on gloves (kitchen-safe) and wash the peppers.
- Cut the tops off of your peppers and slice in half lengthwise.
- Pour the vinegar into a saucepan/pot, add peppers, salt, and garlic. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a low boil until peppers are soft (about 10 minutes).
- Pour everything into your blender, including peppers and vinegar.
- Blend it (seeds and all) until liquefied.
- Add additional heat if desired. If you like it hot, add a Habanero (or half of one), re-blend and re-taste.
- Enjoy. You now have hot sauce!
This additional pepper added to the blender isn’t cooked. We don’t recommend adding “additional heat” when you’re cooking the peppers on the stove when you make this the first time. This gives you the chance to adjust the heat after the fact, little by little. Once you determine how much heat you like, feel free to add those additional peppers to the ones you cooked earlier in subsequent batches.

Best Hot Sauces: 25 Modern Sauce Recipes to Master: Amazing Bar B Que Sauce and Other to Delight Your Dishes
Mastering sauce has always been a challenge over the centuries with some of the biggest evolution in the cooking process. A good sauce should enhance the taste of the meat, fish or even vegetables that it accompanies, giving its special flavor to the main dish. The sauce has always been part of our life from ancient times. The Greek and the Romans had their own ways of preparing some basic sauce recipes, which was mainly a very salty and concentrated mixture used to flavor most recipes. It was only in the nineteenth century that the sauce really transformed to the ones we know and use today. Sauces can be fatty or light and healthy depending on the ingredients you are going to use to make it. For example, you can always replace the butter with some egg yolks or even replace cream with yogurt if you are more thinking of choosing healthy options. So let's start to go through this cookbook to understand and create some lovely sauces to accompany all your dishes for the delight of everyone and mainly yourself because the most important in cooking is not just to please others but more importantly is to please yourself!
