  10 rater(s)

Light a fire on your taste buds with this hot pepper sauce. If you want to make it milder, use less habeñeros and add 1 more tomato. You can play around with ingredient measurements to get a hot sauce that you are happy with. Just don’t go overboard with the salt.

  • Total Time: 30m


  • 10 peppers (Habeñero, peppers)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 garlic cloves

  • 2 Roma tomatoes (more or less depending on desired spice level)
  • 3/4 c extra virgin olive oil

  2. Pour the pepper mixture into a small sauce pan, bring to a boil, and slowly simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burns. Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
