"This a quick and easy hot sauce my dad makes with canned tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and spices. My mom had to go behind him to write down what he was tossing in. Charring the jalapeno peppers (optional) gives it that smokiness, and the jalapeno pepper seeds need to be in the hot sauce (picante) for the heat. " — mis7up

Made this for the Recipe Swap! Very good sauce. I did double the jalapeno and I ended up needing more salt, so added my favorite seasoning blend(garlic/onion/salt/black pepper), but it sure is easy and great to have for folks to have a place to start. It would also be great with a bit of chipotles added! Thanks Mis7up! :)
Not spicy or hot as all. Tastes like slightly flavoured tomato sauce. I added a lot more onion and garlic as well as a bit of vinegar and used 6 Jalepeno's and 2 Habanero's to spice it up a bit. In the end I just felt like i was making a pasta sauce.
This rates a 5 for ease of prep and a 4 for flavor. Personally, I think that it needs more salt. I used fresh Romas which gave a good thick sauce.
Really nice sauce. I swapped in four habeneros for the jalepenos because that is all I had. It turned out great. What a nice flavor.
We enjoyed this. We will make it again.
