I love trying different hot sauces. We always have sriracha on hand, but I've been wanting something with a different flavor. Not just heat, but flavor. We came across this sauce years ago, but it cost too much to order. So I attempted to make my own. I love the flavor, and the heat. But be careful, once you start eating this, you'll keep wanting more :)
Habanero Hot Sauce
adapted from simplecomfortfood
2 medium size tomatoes (quartered)
1 large carrot (cut into 1/4 inch rounds)
1 medium onion, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, smashed
8 habanero peppers, stemmed (I used about 10 small)
2 tsp salt
1 TB turmeric powder
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1 TB sugar
*Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
*Combine the tomatoes, onions, garlic, and carrot on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for about 15 minutes, or until the veggies are soft.
*Place the remaining ingredients in a blender along with the roasted veggies.
*Puree until well blended. Taste, and add more salt or sugar if needed.
*Allen and I ate this straight up with tortilla chips. It has a nice sweetness to it when you first taste it, but then the heat slowly comes on. Delicious!
