Fresno Pepper Hot Sauce

Hot Sauce is a staple in our kitchen.  

The Captain loves putting it on all types of food and I'm learning how to expand my horizons, even though I have always cooked with hot peppers.  He makes our hot sauce and we will be sharing his recipe as soon as he puts it into words!

The source link goes to the episode page of Fiery Foods, which includes other recipes featured on the show.

My favorite thing she made with the pepper was the fiery compound butter she used to make a roasted chicken.  OMG, that gave me so many ideas!

Wouldn't the hot sauce taste great in a mayonnaise sauce for sandwiches and burgers?  The possibilities are endless!

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 8 Fresno peppers, chopped
    • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    • 1/2 habanero pepper, chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 2 shallots, chopped
    • 1/3 cup cider vinegar


Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add all the peppers, the garlic and shallots, and saute until softened and fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. Then add 1/2 cup water and simmer an additional 4 to 5 minutes.

Place the cooked mixture into a blender and add the vinegars and salt. Blend until completely smooth and pureed. Adjust the seasoning and serve.
