Garlic Lover’s Hot Sauce

For years my family has been buying a hot sauce found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. It is Albert’s Mild Hot Sauce. It is mild packed with big tomato flavor and loads of garlic. This past weekend I experimented with making my own version. Although it may not be exactly the same it does have all the great flavors of the original. It is sweet with the same big tomato flavor. I used a fresno chili so it has a mild and fruity chili flavor. It gets all its heat from the garlic. This is definitely for all you garlic loving, cilantro haters out there. Don't get me wrong I LOVE cilantro but this hot sauce is delicious too. It deserves a place on the table at any Mexican dinner.

Garlic Lover’s Hot Sauce
Make 4 cups


1 (28 oz) can whole tomatoes
1 fresno chili, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic
1-1/2 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp canola oil
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp sugar


In a blender, process fresno, garlic, vinegar, tomato paste, oil, salt and sugar with the liquid from the can of tomatoes. Blend until the chili and garlic are chopped fine. Add the tomatoes and pulse until desired constancy. Refrigerate for a few hours to let flavors blend. Serve with tortilla chips.
