Hot pepper sauce and a jalapeno pepper give this snappy sauce just the right amount of zip. It makes a great dip for tortilla chips or a tangy sauce for tacos and fajitas. "This is always a big hit at parties and office gathering," writes Barbara Sellers of Shreveport, Louisiana. "I even make it for my mother when she needs to bring a dip to a party."
