Dry-Aged Roast Beef with Fresh Hot Sauce
"I love this dish," says Stuart Brioza. "It's a pretty traditional roast beef, almost like an Italian tagliata [sliced steak], but then you shake it up by serving it with crispy garlic chips and a fresh-chile hot sauce." The beef is salt-cured, so it's extra juicy; served on a bed of arugula, with the bright red hot sauce, it's a very Christmassy dish.
Jamaican Hot Sauce
This is hot, hot sauce and it makes the perfect accompaniment to Jamaican patties.
Steak Fajitas with Charred-Tomato Hot Sauce

Apricot-Chile Hot Sauce
To add complexity to her apricot hot sauce, Chef Minh Phan uses multiple chile varieties. "I like to feel the heat all over, not just at the back of the mouth, and each chile brings its own flavor and heat to the sauce," she explains.
Hot Sauce Spinach-Artichoke Hummus
This tangy, chunky, brightly flavored spinach-artichoke hummus is fabulous with hot sauce and crispy toast or pita chips
Fresh Jalapeño Hot Sauce
The inspiration for this sauce by chef Abraham Conlon is cafreal, an Indian braise with Portuguese roots. It's a sprightly, all-purpose sauce that's vividly flavored with cilantro, chiles, garlic and lime juice. (Seed and de-rib some or all of the chiles for a milder version.) Conlon recommends stirring the sauce into a green chile stew, using it as a marinade for chicken, or sprinkling it on pork or fish tacos.
Ginger-Lime Hot Sauce
Chef Eric Johnson of Stateside in Seattle uses red Fresno chiles, lime, garlic, and ginger for his fresh take on hot sauce. This condiment is a fiery, pungent match for his Crispy Chicken, but also try it slathered on chicken, tofu, or sandwiches.
