  • 4 ounces spicy chili peppers – This works for any pepper of choosing. I used a bunch of Fresno peppers. Use a variety.
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a small pot and heat. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Cool and adjust the flavor with salt and pepper to your tastes.
  • Store in a sealable jar in the refrigerator.



Makes about 1 cup. Thin with a bit of water, if desired.
Heat Factor: HOT, though it will depend on the peppers used.
