The spicier the better

I love all things spicy and over the past nine years of marriage, I have converted my husband as well. When we first got married, that wasn’t the case. Growing up in Minnesota, he didn’t have all of the palate-expanding opportunities that I did having grown up in southern Louisiana. I remember one of the first meals that I cooked for him – as I finished mine I looked over at him and he had only taken a couple of bites. His forehead was beading with sweat and he told me he couldn’t finish it, that it was too spicy. I laughed so hard because I didn’t even taste any spice in it at all. In my wedding vows, I even promised to try to not make too spicy of food for him. Thank goodness he toughened up so I could keep to that vow because now he is throwing on more hot sauce than me on his food! He especially loves this Keto Firecracker Hot Sauce.

“Making hot sauce is a very forgiving process. Hot sauce is something you put on your food so you don’t have to worry about getting the recipe perfect. Once everything is blended, you’ll have a hot sauce you’ll love no matter what!”

Even though I used the Koops’ Jalapeno Mustard and Koops’ Honey Mustard in this recipe, you can experiment with any of the Koops’ Mustards! Some other ones that I think would be great in this recipe are:
If you like a little kick in your food, this Keto Firecracker Hot Sauce pairs perfectly with any of our BurgerFit burger recipes. What I love about hot sauce is that it allows everyone to be able to enjoy their food to their preference. Especially when cooking for others, I don’t typically add much spice to the actual dish. Then the spicy food lovers can add hot sauce so they don’t feel as though they are eating something bland and those who are spice sensitive aren’t sweating bullets and blowing steam from their ears. A few of my favorite BurgerFit Deconstructed recipes to eat with this hot sauce are:

Keto Firecracker Hot Sauce

I have fallen in love with experimenting making my own hot sauces. It is much more simple than I thought it would be! The basics are:
Hot peppers, Vinegar, Spices, Water, Blend it up!
I was a little overzealous one summer planting peppers and ended up having to dehydrate over a hundred of them! After seeing them sit in my pantry for many months, I decided I needed to figure out a way to start using them up or I would never get through all of them. That is when I came up with the idea for using them in my own hot sauces. One of the great things about making hot sauce is that it is very forgiving and you really don't have to obsess over getting the recipe perfect.

Cutting board
Measuring spoons
Measuring cups


  • ½ cup dried hot peppers: jalepeno and serrano peppers if you have fresh peppers, you can use those! I would start with doing fresh 6-8 hot peppers
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • cup water divided, more if needed for consistency
  • 4 garlic cloves if your garlic gloves are small, add a couple extra
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ cup Koops' mustard I filled up half a measuring cup of mostly Koops' Jalapeno Mustard with some Koops' Honey Mustard


  • Remove the stems from the peppers. If you want the sauce less spicy remove some or all of the seeds.
  • In a medium size pot, toast the peppers on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Stir occasionally and watch to keep from burning. The peppers will be very fragrant and may make your eyes water!
  • Add the apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup water to pot and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • While the peppers are simmering, add the garlic, Koops' Mustard, salt and remaining water to blender.
  • Once peppers are done simmering, add the entire mixture in the pot to the blender.
  • Blend on low for about 30 seconds, then increase the speed to high for 1 minute. If needed, add more water until you reach your desired hot sauce consistency.
  • Once you reach your ideal consistency, scrap the hot sauce into to a jar or small container with a lid for storing.
  • Go ahead and give it a taste! Let it sit in the refrigerator for a couple of days for the flavors to fully combine.
  • Store in the refrigerator.

    I’ve been searching for an authentic hot sauce since I got here from Mexico and this one is by far the best I can compare to a real Mexican hot sauce. The blend of spices, garlic and pepper is perfect! They also make the spicy green sauce there which I’m planning to imitate.
