So I made this hot sauce for my husband a few weeks ago and he has already finished it! While it is extremely hot, it apparently has a lot of flavor as well. The carrots help to bring out the sweetness in the peppers. While I can’t personally attest to this (it is WAY to spicey for me!) it got rave reviews from my husband.
So if you are in need of a hot sauce recipe, here you go!
1 1/2 cups chopped carrots
1 small onion (I use red, because that’s what I always have on hand)
3-4 cloves garlic (I used the dried minced because my fresh garlic always goes bad)
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups lime juice (I did half and half lemon and lime because I ran out of lime)
1 cup habaneros. (I used one sandwich bag full of previously frozen chilis but you can use less peppers if you want a little less heat)
Put everything but the peppers in a pan and simmer for 10 min or so until the carrots are soft. Pour into a blender. Cut the stems of the habaneros and put in blender.
Blend until smooth. I didn’t strain this because the seeds don’t bother my husband but you could if you wanted it smoother.
