This Puerto Rican hot sauce is made in-house at Boricua Soul, a Puerto Rican–Southern restaurant in Durham, North Carolina. The simple, fiery pepper vinegar condiment includes both jalapeño and habanero chiles for a more complex chile flavor. After you make this pique recipe, swirl it into a bowl of Vegan Collards, or add a spoonful over braised meats or anywhere else you like a hit of heat.
