Tasty Notes By SpiceRally

  • You can use the following substitutions  if you can’t find these ingredients in your pantry: Buttermilk- milk / Lemon juice- lime juice / Sour cream- full-fat Greek yogurt
  • If you discover adding cayenne pepper could add extra heat to your sauce, skip it or replace this ingredient with paprika/ hot paprika/ smoked paprika.
  • You can adjust the spiciness depending on your personal taste preference. Accordingly, use more or less habanero sauce, adjusting the quantity used in our recipe.
  • You don’t need to have both of these dried herbs in your sauce; just follow up with what you have in hand.
