I added way more than several dashes of hot pepper sauce, and it is the winning flavor to me. I didn't bother sauteeing the onion and garlic because I love it plain. If my cilantro hadn't gone bad I would have added it to the mixture. I did add salt and pepper. Recipe courtesy of Best Recipes of the Great Food Companies.
