Helofa hot sauce (their name!!)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Olive oil
1 large White onion, finely diced (any kind will do, I suspect)
4 \N Red serrano or cayenne chiles, chopped (not seeded-recipe says not to)
2 \N Canned chipotle chiles, along with any adobo sauce that clings
1 \N Plump garlic cloves, minced (up to 2)
2 tablespoons Red wine vinegar

this recipe comes from the book "Onions, Onions, Onions" by Linda and Fred Griffith. I haven't tried it, but they recommend it for chicken wings, or marinating shrimp for barbecuing, among othre things.

In med. non-aluminum saucepan, over high heat, combine oil, onion, fresh chiles, chipotles, and garlic. Bring mixture just to a boil; remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temp. Combine chile mixture and vinegar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Puree until smooth. Pour sauce into a sterilized jar and cover tightly. Let flavors marry at room temp for several days before using. This sauce will keep, refrigerated, for several weeks.
