Habanero hot sauce

habanero hot sauce

Our Texas garden produces a lot of vegetables. The peppers really do the best of anything. This is the 8th year of gardening with my husband and this is by far the best hot sauce recipe I have found. Trust me… I have tried a LOT. I cannot handle too much spice. With as hot has habaneros are, most of the time I cannot even enjoy them. This sauce is more mild and I really enjoy it.


1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 cup diced carrot

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 cups water

6-8 habanero peppers, seeded

3 tablespoons line juice

3 tablespoons white vinegar

1 teaspoon salt


Saute the carrot, onion, and garlic in the oil in a saucepan for 6-8 minutes. Add the water and boil covered until tender or about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the habanero, lime, vinegar, and salt. Cool. Blend until smooth in a food processor. Store refrigerated in glass jars.
