Mango-Habanero Hot Sauce – Recipe
A spicy hot sauce recipe made with sweet mangos and fiery habanero peppers and other peppers. It’s time to spice things up!
- 2 small mangos peeled and chopped
- 2 serrano peppers chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper chopped
- 1 habanero pepper chopped
- 1 small sweet onion chopped
- 2 medium red tomatoes chopped
- 4 cloves garlic chopped
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1/2 cup red wine vinegar or more for a thinner hot sauce
- Salt and pepper to taste
Add all of the ingredients to a food processor. Pulse the mixture several times until you achieve your desired consistency.
Pour the mixture into a pan and bring it to a quick light boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
If you would like a thinner sauce, add in a bit more vinegar, about a 1/4 cup at a time, to achieve your desired consistency.
Cool, then strain, if desired, or leave it as a thicker hot sauce. Store in the refrigerator in airtight containers. The flavors will develop the longer you let it sit.
Makes about 2.5 cups.
Heat Factor: Hot. You can reduce the overall heat by omitting the habanero pepper. Like some EXTRA heat? Toss in an additional habanero.
You can also STRAIN this hot sauce to remove some of the pulp for a much thinner hot sauce. The pulp can be discarded or dehydrated then ground to make a homemade seasoning blend.
