Homemade Hot Sauce Rolls

The story here is, that Hubby came home one day with a bee in his bonnet about these hot sauce rolls he tried, I’ve mentioned it before, in my hot sauce recipe post. Here are the hot sauce rolls that he came up with, and I have to say, they are really good. I’m not a huge “heat” fan so he didn’t go crazy, they’ll clear your sinuses up but you will be able to taste food later on!
