5-alarmer! I got this one from an employee of a local Tex-Mex / Mexican restaurant.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the tomato paste with the water in a medium saucepan and whisk until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
  3. Heat mixture over medium high heat until it begins to boil.
  4. Continue to cook for about 3 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. When sauce is cool enough to taste, try a sample and call your local Fire Department if necessary.
  7. If it's not hot enough for you, add some jalapenos and/or cayenne pepper and/or ground red pepper.
  8. When sauce has cooled sufficiently poured it into a sealed container and refrigerate.
