  • Blend until the consistency is reached coarse-looking hot sauce.
  • If you like your spicy sauce smooth, give it a minute in the blender on high.
  • Pour this mixture into a pot and cook on low to medium heat.
  • We need to simmer it until all of the water evaporates and we have a mash.
  • Add distilled white vinegar to this mash and simmer for another 13 to 15 minutes to allow the vinegar to absorb.
  • After the mixture has cooled, strain it into a glass jar, and the hot sauce is ready to be served.


  • If you want a hot sauce that doesn’t look as chunky, mix it some more and strain it through a fine wire mesh strainer. You might also add more water and vinegar during the cooking process.
  • This is my take on the recipe; adjusting the ingredients to your personal preference will be necessary.

    I used a cup of Arbol peppers per the recipe, but it is more like 25-30 (not 55-60), and it is a perfect amount of spice. I pureed the ingredients in a food processor before cooking and then once it was cooled completely I pureed again and then sifted out the seeds, so that just the pulp and liquid remained, as the texture was unpleasant straight out of the pot.

    I feel like there’s something missing though…it has the same aroma as taco time sauce, but the flavor is a bit off. The vinegar is a must to get the right flavor, so don’t skip that step!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!
