The best thing about hot sauce is that there are so many different types that exist. This means that if you are somebody who loves spice, you always have a new and exciting hot sauce to add to your meal.
But, sometimes the best hot sauces are ones that you make yourself at home. After all, when you are making the recipe yourself, you can modify it to be as spicy or mild as you wish.
However, the first time that you make your own hot sauce can often be rather scary, and so it is likely that you are searching for a recipe that you can follow to the letter.
In this guide, we have compiled a list of 10 of the best Serrano hot sauce recipes that exist. Even better? These recipes can all be made and enjoyed tonight. So, if you want to find out more, keep on reading.
First up, we would recommend this spicy Serrano hot sauce recipe.
This recipe is an absolute classic, and it contains everything that you could ever want out of a Serrano hot sauce. But our favorite thing about this recipe is that it will be ready to enjoy in just twenty minutes once you start making it.
However, there is a caveat to this, and that is that the peppers have to be fermented for 7 days before making the sauce. So, while you will be able to try this recipe tonight, you will have needed to ferment the peppers 7 days ago.
This next recipe is a better option if you don’t want to prepare anything in advance, and that is because there is no fermentation needed.
With just 10 minutes of preparation time and 10 minutes of cooking time, this sauce will actually be ready to enjoy in just 20 minutes.
This recipe does have a longer ingredient list, but this is totally worth it once you try the finished product.

Sure, Serrano hot sauce is hot on its own, but if you are someone who loves spice, this heat might simply not be enough.

This next Jalapeño and Serrano hot sauce recipe are slightly similar to the recipe that we looked at earlier, but it contains some key differences that completely transform the flavor of the hot sauce.
