Devilishly Hot Pepper Sauce

This is a scorching hot version of our family Homemade Hot Sauce Sriracha Style recipe, made especially for my hot sauce craving husband, maybe you know someone who likes it hot too? This sauce cleared the kitchen while it was cooking so if you have little ones you may want to make this when they’re not going to be in the kitchen with you. Definitely use the fan when you making this too because you’ll want to move that steam right on out of the house.

A while back I made a Chipotle Dipping Sauce, it used a tad bit of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, leaving me to wonder what to do with the rest of the can of peppers in sauce. I don’t like lingering leftovers so I made up a batch of the hottest hot sauce I could muster for my husband to enjoy.

Devilishly Hot Pepper Sauce

Devilishly Hot Pepper Sauce


  • 1 pound hot peppers, such as thai, cayenne, habanero, red or green jalapeños, serranos, you get the picture
  • 1 7 ounce 7 chipotles in adobo sauce, -found in most grocery stores
  • 8-10 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup vinegar, r-mix it up and use different flavors--I love rice wine vinegar and white wine mixed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp salt, you can add more after it's done cooking


  1. wearing the gloves remove the stems from the peppers and roughly chop the peppers
  2. put them in the jar
  3. crush and peel the garlic and add it to the jar
  4. mix the vinegar, honey and salt together pour over the peppers
  5. let the peppers soak for up to 24 hours
  6. once the peppers are done soaking pour them in pot
  7. bring them to a boil over medium high heat, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes
  8. let them cool completely
  9. puree in a food processor until smooth, about 4-5 minutes
  10. you can strain out the seeds with a food mill but they contain some of the heat so you may lose potency if you strain
  11. Learn from my mistake drape a towel over the food processor BEFORE turning it on or you will have splattered hot sauce decorating your walls.


you will want to wear disposable gloves when working with peppers you need a large 1/2 gallon or so sized jar for soaking the peppers
