This is a great recipe if you like hot sauce. With a few additions this could easily be 5 stars. WARNING if you do not like extremely hot sauces this is not the sauce for you.

This was very easy and eveyone loved it. My brother in law wouldn't stop eating it even eith the sweat running off his fourhead. Will be making more of this.

Maybe I should have left some of the seeds in. Not hot at all! But the taste is fair.
