Just tried this and it was great! We are huge sauce people. (sauces are half of our fridge) This was super easy and just the right amount of kick! And thank you to Chris for reminding about the gloves. I always forget and am miserable for about 8 hours!

WOWZA this is good! I was a little skeptical of putting one whole habanero in, but it's not too spicy at all. We drizzled this over some asparagus and it was delicious! Tonight I put it in our beef stirfry. YUM! This would be fantastic in pork or chicken lettuce wraps. Oh, the possibilities! For the wimps out there, just strain the sauce to remove the pepper (the horror!) before serving and it won't be as spicy. For us though, it's perfect. Definitely need to double this the next time I make it. Oh, and the only change I made was to use one sweetener packet instead of real sugar. Thanks so much for the great recipe Chris!

I only made half the recipe, well, I halved everything except the habanero, and it was still great. I wish I would have made a double batch now. I like the thought of this on a chicken wrap, as someone else mentioned, and I might try that tomorrow. I was eager to try it today and I ended up dipping pizza in it. It's very good and I think it would go well with a lot of different foods. I bought a lot of habaneros and actually made 3 recipes with them today (!), and this is my favorite. I'm already planning to make more of it.

Excellent sauce. I will be doubling the recipe next time.
