Texas Hot Sauce

"This is a really good salsa/sauce that will put bottled versions to shame. My best-friend's SIL in Arlington, TX made this for a party once and I had to get the recipe. It makes alot - so it's good for a gathering - or as we use to say in TX - for a "throw-down"!"

Ready In:
1 large batch




  • Heat oil, vinegar, salt and accent (first 4 ingredients) just enough to dissolve salt and accent- do not boil.
  • (If it boils-- you'll have to start over) Chop remaining ingredients separately.
  • I have found that it doesn't work well if you dump everything in processor at once.
  • In large bowl, pour vinegar/salt mixture over salsa and mix well.
  • Best if let set overnight for flavors to blend.
  • Enjoy with chips, eggs, whatever you like salsa with.

  1. This was excellent and I will never buy store bought again. I used seasoning salt instead of the accent seasoning.
  2. really good. this recipe is just the right blend of all the spices with enough "kick" so you know that you're eating salsa, but not so much that you set your mouth on fire. taste great mixed with avacadoes to make guacamole too.

<P>I'm a Mom of three boys: 19, 16, 13 (Josh, Jake and Jonah) and a 1 yr old golden retriever-Jethro. I work full-time as a Medicare compliance analyst for a non-profit health insurer. I love to cook - although I don't always have enough time to do as I'd like to do. I don't especially care to do the clean up though- but who does?? Food in general brings people together and makes people feel at ease. My boys love to help out in the kitchen-especially if I'm baking bread or baking sweet treats for them. If anyone were to ask them what I put in a recipe - first two ingredients they'd list would be olive oil and garlic -- (well not for the sweet stuff..at least)! I'm constantly browsing to see how I can alter/influence my family's eating - as well as trying to get it on the table quickly! My boys are all hockey players - so I spend a lot of time at the ice arena. When I have time of my own..I try to get on the golf course or read cookbooks.</P>
