One of my all time favorite sauces in the summer time. I use hot smoked paprika but sweet will work too. If you don't want to use fresh garlic, and onion you can sub 2 tbs onion powder and 1 tbs granulated garlic. Be aware that this sauce will getter hotter overnight. I usually make this 2 days in advance to give the flavors time to mature. Can be used same day but tomorrow the leftovers will have a different flavor. Not a bad thing, just thought you should know.
