Background: grew up in Texas, travelled the world in the military and after, and grew up to love all things hot. THIS is the best hot sauce I've tasted bar-none. Only had one red bell, no mint, and no Fresnos, so instead of traipsing to the store for them I used a 12oz jar of roasted red peppers (less the juice) plus the red bell I roasted. Substituted 4 jalapenos and about a Tblsp Sriracha to get the heat up, and used Basil rather than Mint. Not quite what you may have intended with my substitutions but WOW--Chef John my hat's off to you. A great balance between taste and heat. Thanks for your efforts as your recipes are always winners. Been cooking for over 40 years--still learning!
