    Taste and add more pepper sauce, salt, and pepper, as needed. *If you can't find pepper sauce or pepper vinegar in your area, you can make it quickly. Fill a washed and sterilized jar with small hot peppers. Bring about 1 cup of vinegar (as much as will cover the peppers) to a boil and then pour over the peppers. Cover and store in the refrigerator. For hotter pepper sauce, cut a slit in some of the peppers or slice a few of them. Some other types of greens that could be substituted include collard greens , kale , turnip greens , or a mixture of greens .
