"This sauce is very hot, but not too insane. For maximum heat increase habaneros as desired."

salt and ground black pepper to taste
The recipe has 2 measurements backwards: 1. Carrots should be 1 Cup (not 1 tablespoon) 2. Water should be 1 Tablespoon - give or take (not 1 Cup) That should help out considerably. Add Habaneros as desired!!!
I really hoped that I'd like this, but I honestly did not enjoy this at all. It was definitely hot enough, but I agree that the tomato flavor was just too much, and I think it really needed some seasoning.
I have made this recipe a few times and its a big hit at dinner parties. I make the "Tex Mex Pork" from Allrecipes and put the shredded pork in its sauce over pasta and add the "Habanero Hot Sauce" with sour cream as a condiment and everyone loves the combination! The only modification I make to this recipe is I cut open my habanero and remove the seeds and stem. My husband and I love hot food, but we managed to ruin a different recipe when we added whole habaneros because it was so hot that we couldn't eat the stew we had slaved over for an entire afternoon. I opt to put my habaneros in a pyrex and steam the habaneros in a double boiler for about 7 minutes. I think this mellows out the hotness of the sauce without losing any flavor. I add everything to a food processor minus the tomato and it makes a delicious fairly spicy sauce that pleases the masses.
This Recipe is *Da Best*
I don't like the taste of this on it's own so much, but it's excellent mixed with food!
This is a delicious sauce. I only had half the amount of vinegar it calls for, but it turned out awesome anyway. I can't wait to make it with the amount called for.
The sauce was too watery and I was overwelmed with tomatoe flavor.
I had an abundance of Habanero peppers from my garden this year. I was looking for another use for them besides in my chilly. The recipe was easy to make and the taste was hot but not too spicy. I would suggest that you prepare this recipe in a well ventilated kitchen. While onions may make you cry, the effect of the Habanero fumes feels like mace. My wife, in the other end of the house, said she felt her eyes burning.
