This sauce is a great example of extreme flavors balancing one another. The habanero peppers used make this sauce extremely hot, but the fat from the eggs and oil, and the sweetness from the sugar, mask the heat up front giving it a delayed reaction. If not careful it can scorch your palate! As Pedro (Gonzo) once requested "more heat!!" I've renamed it "Gonzo Hell Fire Aioli." I use this with my fresh fish tacos, however, it's a great condiment on just about anything!

notes
This can be used on many things! I always keep it in the refrigerator as my kids love it on eggs, burritos, steak!
