Louisiana Style Hot Sauce - Although tabasco chiles are traditional in this style of hot sauce, they can be hard to find. Cayennes are just as classic and flavorful. Other small, hot, red chiles (like serranos) may be used, too.
Habanero hot sauce A carrot, a shallot, couple of garlic cloves, 6 chocolate habaneros in various stages of ripeness, 2 chillies and 3 cherry hots. Some lime juice, a little sugar, salt, pepper and 1/4 c vinegar with a little water to thin it out. Kept it "natural", avoided additional flavoring (herbs, seeds etc) and pretty happy with it. Has heat. Made just over a bottle's worth.
