I love hot and spicy, so would like to make this, but I have absolutely no idea what to use this for.  Any ideas?


oww.. my fingers are still burning an hour after i made this.. wear gloves when you cut up chilis.. i usually do, but totally forgot this time hehe


holy crap.. omg.. yeah.. this should be called HOT DEATH SPICY EXTRA SPICY BURN YOUR EYES OUT chili lime sauce.. maybe its the chilis i used.. but jesus christ.. i opened the blender to smell it (heheheh) and couldnt stop coughing from the spicy fumes for like 5 mins.. but damn does this stuff taste good!

i really wanted to try and replicate the ingredients of sriracha, so i added a clove of garlic, a sprinkle of sugar and a splash of white vinegar.. this stuff is delicious.. not by itself of course, but its a fantastic way to store your fresh chilis.. i used thai birds eye chilis btw

the spice is the life  >:D
