Favorite brands ? Homemade recipes? I like Hot Mama's brand HabaneroXXX, from Belize and contains only Red Habaneros, Carrots, Onions, Lime juice, Vinegar, Garlic and Salt. Fair amount of kick with Great flavor. I think this has a much better flavor than Dave's, Tabasco or some of the others I've tried. I also like El Tapatio for it's flavor, although a bit milder. Great on eggs. Never tried my own hot sauce; plenty of salsa and pico though. Also went ahead and ordered some of this today : "Melinda's All Natural Habanero Ketchup". I will post up on how it tastes when it gets here.
