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

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*
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.
I don't like the taste of this on it's own so much, but it's excellent mixed with food!
The sauce was too watery and I was overwelmed with tomatoe flavor.
I liked this, my son said it wasn't hot enough! I love the fact that I didn't have to wear gloves to handle the peppers, but instead put the whole peppers right into the blender! Now I just have to figure out the best method to store this! On second thought, it might not last long enough for that to be a concern!
