Hot sauce: it's what's for dinner
One of my favorite hot sauces is Blair's Jalapeño Death Sauce. Unfortunately it's hard to find locally and you all know how I hate to shop online. To that end, I decided to try and whip up my own batch, based on a hot sauce recipe I found via google with some modifications to match the ingredient list on Blair's website. Here, for your seasoning pleasure, is my recipe.

Sauté the following in a splash of olive oil:

7 large jalapeños, sliced. (more or less depending on preference - this makes a medium-hot sauce, as hot sauces go, depending on just how wicked your particular peppers are, and how calloused your taste buds)
3 medium tomatillos, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 clove of shallot, sliced
1/4 onion, diced

While the mixture is heating up, add the following:

juice of about 20 key limes
pinch of coarse-grained salt
punch of sugar

Let that simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. When done add the entire mixture to your blender along with:

1/2 cup white vinegar
splash of 100% agave tequila
handful cilantro leaves

Blend vigorously until pureed (or use the "Sauce" button on your Blendtec, like I did).

Use as a garnish on your favorite foods. Stores for up to 6 months in the refrigerator.

Update: After further taste-testing and deliberation I think I would up the jalapeño count slightly and reduce the amount of lime juice. YMMV.
