If asked to choose my favorite condiment, information pills I may just have to go with hot sauce. Though mustard — especially the spicy, denture grainy kind of mustard — would be a very close second. When you’ve got the right hot sauce, online it can add subtle and delicious flavor, as well as heat. When you’ve got the wrong kind of hot sauce, it can taste vinegar-y or so overpoweringly spicy that you can’t taste anything else.
This homemade hot sauce has 4 ingredients: dried chiles de arbol, a touch of honey, a dash of apple cider vinegar and water. The chiles de arbol are spicy and smokey and give this hot sauce a unique flavor that has some of the chipotle’s smokiness, but isn’t as overpowering.
And if asked to choose my favorite dish to dress with hot sauce, it would be eggs. Without a doubt, eggs and hot sauce are best friends.

Delicious and wholesome, it was a great way to kick off the week with a little spice.
Apologies for the ugly picture. I had the wrong lens on my camera and was too hungry to notice.
