Making homemade chipotle hot sauce is very easy and it allows you to make it just as hot as you like. Once you taste fresh chipotle hot sauce you'll never want to go back to the bottled stuff. Without further ado, here is our chipotle hot sauce recipie.

If you do want to keep some bottled chipotle hot sauce on hand here are some brands that we have found to be good: Cholula, El Yucateco, and even TABASCO brand.

Chipotle Hot Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle pepper puree
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl. It's best when used fresh but you can keep it in an air tight container in the refrigerator for several months.

Chipotle Hot Sauce Recipie Notes

To subtly alter the flavor of your chipotle hot sauce you can try using different vinegars in the recipe. I recommend apple cider vinegar or peach vinegar to add some more fruitiness to your hot sauce.
