    Chef Ronald R.'s Note:

    Light up your life with the best hot sauce you'll ever taste. This sauce is simmilar to Pico Pica. I like it because it can be used on any food requiring a little nip to the tongue. I love Pico Pica but it's hard to find in the Midwest. Soooooo, after a lot of research, I decided to make my own tasty hot sauce. Try it. If you are a hot sauce lover, you'll like this one. There are two versions. The original, made with dried red chili peppers and the one for the brave at heart, made with Habanero's.

    1. 1
      Make sure the red chili peppers are the hot dried type with stems removed. Bring all ingredients, except tomato sauce, to a boil, turn down heat and simmer about ten minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Place in blender and add tomato sauce. Add carrot at this point if using Habanero recipe. Blend until smooth. Add a little more water if to thick.
    2. 2
      If you use the Habanero's recipe make sure you include the seeds. If you want to tone it down a little then remove the seeds.

      Really good! I halved the recipe to try it out. I think I over cooked it because there was no more water in the pot after boiling. I continued with the recipe anyway and it turned out a little thick but we all loved it. My whole family enjoyed dipping it with chips and then using it for a taco salsa.

      I had bought habaneros at the supermarket because while we seem to be finally get more and more Mexican ingredients and food here, the only hot sauces you can get are either hot and don't really taste very good (usually too vinegary) or are too mild to serve their purpose. I decided to go with this one because the chef said it was similar to a sauce I know and like. I can't remember well enough to tell you if it does in fact taste like Pico Pica, but this is an excellent sauce and I will make more often in the future. It was very hot but had a wonderful fruity flavour like any good habanero based hot sauce should have.

      A great new flavor for my chili loving family. Easy to make, yet it seems so exotic! I used a combination of different types of dried chilis and followed the recipe. Thanks Ronald!
