This is an adaptation of a Justin Wilson recipe which I have been making for more than 20 years. The hot sauce can be adjusted to suit your taste. I use the pre-washed, chopped collards sold in bags. This is the only way my family will eat collards since I started making them with this recipe. Hope ya'll like it too! :)
