Quick Hot Sauce

This is a quick hot sauce recipe that only costs around $1.75 and makes about 20 ounces.

Quick Hot Sauce
  • 2 cans of DRAINED diced tomatoes with green chiles ( Rotel is a good
  • brand)
  • 1 handful or less of fresh cilantro (depending on how well you like the taste of cilantro)
  • ½ medium white onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 Tbs sea salt
  1. In a blender place all ingredients and blend to the consistency you want.
If you have a powerful blender such as the Health Master or Vitamix, use the pulse setting or it can be too watery. Blending is very quick, so don't over blend! Once you make this hot sauce, you may want to adjust the amounts of the ingredients to suit your family's tastes. Also, if it is too spicy, try adding spinach. Spinach won't add to the taste but will help decrease the heat.


My mother and I make this hot sauce all the time, and just love it. We think it tastes better than most Mexican restaurants, and it’s always a hit during family get-togethers. Enjoy!
