Default Adding heat to sauce

What's the best way to add heat to a sauce without affecting the flavor too much? Hot sauces, chile powders, etc.?

If you want the heat but not so much the flavor from the pepper, you could probably use a chile powder from purely seeds. That's where a lot of the heat is and the flavor is mainly in the meat of the pepper. That's my logic, right or wrong.

Try a bottle of Holy Sh*t. No pepper flavor at all. Just pure unnecessary heat.

Never really thought about it, but----
If that logic is sound, and it seems to be, the seeds and veins from Jalapenos should do the trick.

Interesting idea.

Depending on the size of the batch, very little habanero seed or vein would add a lot of heat without any flavor.

Depending on the flavor profile you are after, dry mustard gives a heat that affects a different part of the mouth...also, hot hungarian paprika will give you a different heat.

If its a sauce, I usually toss in a couple of japs or habs, uncut, whole, stems removed only & simmer for 20 to 45 mins depending on heat level wanted. For a powder, I don't have a clue.

I wonder what Wasabi would do? I don't recall a lot of flavor from Wasabi, but a lot of heat.

A teaspoon? I'm surprised he wasn't rushed to the hospital. I have seen someone get an asthma attack from just breathing that stuff in.

Something like that happened to me once. I kept goading my local Chinese restaurant chef to make stuff hotter and hotter until one day he sent out a small bowl of hot sauce. I raised it to my face, took a deep breath, and promptly stopped breathing. We were at a family gathering in the restaurant, and my son called the paramedics. By the time they got there, I was ok, but I thought I was having a heart attack. Never did find out what was in that bowl.

i use just one drop of the really crazy hot stuff..

Daves insanity, or devils revenge, or XXX... or any of the really nutzo hot sauces.. one or 2 drops gets diluted enuf not to change flavor but adds some heat.
