You can probably sub hot sauce one for one, depending on the hot sauce. Is this an Asian recipe?

Most Asian chile pastes have some garlic in them as well, so you might want to add some in addition to your hot pepper sauce.

Garlic, oil, and a lot of chopped chiles. It would be better to make a paste of red pepper flakes.

Breezy is right. Asian chili sauce often has garlic in it as well.

My well-used Asian/Vietnamese cookbook (The Best of Vietnamese and Thai Cooking by Mai Pham) comments that ground chili paste ( known as tuong ot toi, sos prik) is made with coarsely ground red chilies (with seeds and all--the seeds are where the heat comes from), garlic, and salt packed in vinegar. The cookbook also comments that once opened and refrigerated that it will keep almost indefinitely. *** But in a pinch and the fact that you only need one teaspoon I would agree that a REALLY hot pepper sauce would do the trick. Good luck!

Get a tablespoon of ketchup and add 1 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes and 1/2 tsp of granulated garlic or garlic powder.
