Art's Chile-Garlic Sauce
1/4 pound Thai Red or Red Serrano Peppers -- stems removed
11 ounces prepared garlic
1 medium red onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar

Place all ingredients into a blender. Puree until a smooth consistency is reached. Ingredient amounts can vary according to taste. Removing the seeds from the peppers will reduce the sauce "heat."  Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator. Makes about a pint.

Serving Ideas : Great drizzled on pizza, eggs, or in chili to add some kick.
