Make this recipe in a well-ventilated area. If the chiles you are using are especially hot or if you have sensitive skin, wear rubber gloves when handling them. While chiles are sautéing and boiling, keep your face well away from the pan and never touch your face or eyes while cooking or working with hot peppers.

2

Heat vegetable oil over medium heat in a nonstick saucepan. Add sliced jalapeños, garlic, and onion; sauté, stirring frequently, for 5 to 10 minutes, until the onion is transparent, but not yet turning brown.

3

Add the water. When mixture comes to a boil, turn temperature down a bit and put the lid on the pan. Boil gently for about 15 minutes.

4

Remove the pan from heat, take the lid off, and allow everything to sit until cooled to room temperature.

5

Place the cooled jalapeño mixture in a blender and add the salt. Blend at medium speed for 1 minute. While the blender is still working, slowly pour in the vinegar.

6

Strain your hot sauce, then use a funnel to pour the sauce into a sterilized bottle with a tight lid. Refrigerate.
