- This makes about 20 ounces of hot sauce without straining. If you strain it, it will be around half of that amount.
- For the nutrition analysis, we assumed one serving = 1 teaspoon, similar to most brands of jarred sauce. 20 ounces equals about 120 teaspoons of sauce.
- If you prefer a hotter sauce, try substituting a couple serranos for habaneros.
