Roasted Red Jalapeno Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe
A homemade hot sauce recipe made with roasted red jalapeno peppers, garlic, tomato and red wine vinegar. This is one of the most addicting hot sauces I've ever made. I already need another batch!
- 1 pound red jalapeno peppers
- 1 medium yellow onion chopped (about 1 cup)
- 5 cloves garlic chopped
- 8 ounces tomato sauce
- ¼ cup red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Salt to taste
Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Slice the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and remove the stems. Set them onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes, or until the skins blister.
Remove from heat and cover with aluminum foil or a towel to allow them to steam. Peel off the skins and discard.
Set the peppers into a food processor.
Heat a small pan to medium heat and add chopped onion and garlic with a splash of olive oil. Cook about 5 minutes to soften.
Add all remaining ingredients and heat through. Into the food processor they go.
Process the sauce until smooth. You can also use a food mill if you’d like your sauce to be thick and consistent.
Test for salt and serve!
Heat Level: Medium.
This makes a nice and thick sauce. You can easily thin it out by adding more vinegar, lemon juice, a bit of tomato juice or even water to your preferred consistency.
