Remove the peppers when you see the skin is charred. Place in a paper bag to cool.. The steam inside the bag will make it a piece of cake to remove the skin. Place the roasted peppers in your blender or processor.. puree.. add some tobasco sauce and butter.. mix well, this will make a thicker sauce. If you use the jarred roasted peppers, drain well.
excellent idea, Juliev. probably provide more flavor than plain ole tomato paste too!

ty mudbug. I can't remember where I read idea, but I have been doing that for a couple years. I have also done this to make a good wing sauce too.... I love chicken wings.... If I didn't, I should be shipped out of state... lol! I live close to Buffalo, NY. The red peppers give it such a great different flavor.. instead of the ol' hot sauce and butter.

So you basically just make a puree then add some butter (melted?) . Thats an idea...

What does roasting it do? Does it have any benefit or is that just 'the way' :)

Thanks for the info!

hiya will!!!! Roasting peppers give the peppers such a unique flavor.. don't really know how else to answer that... lol. Yes, after the peppers have cooled and you have removed the charred skin.. just puree in the blender/processor, then add melted butter and some tobasco (Frank's Hot Sauce, or whatever hot sauce you like).... mix until well blended. I don't have an exact recipe.. I just go by taste more than anything else. I have also added minced garlic before, for something different.

I just cook for myself, so I rarely follow an exact recipe. Most recipes are geared for a family or more than one person. I like to experiment.

Will looks like this thread got long and you got some good suggestions.

I think the best thing to thicken the sauce up is to let it cook. The hot sauce has a good amount of liquid (in form of vinegar) that can be concentrated. So cook the hot sauce first. Once it thickens mix it with butter and cook it a bit more.

Spread it to the crust with a pastry brush (the thick kind). Keep adding as much as necessary (don't overload). The thicker sauce sticks better to the crust.
