Belizean Habanero Hot Sauce
“This bright orange hot sauce recipe is perfect for spicing up eggs, soups and seafood. To cut the heat, use a little more carrot or fewer habanero peppers. Scotch bonnet peppers can be substituted.
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 small onion, chopped
½ cup chopped carrots
1 cup water
3 fresh habanero chiles, stems and seeds removed, chopped
¼ cup lime juice
½ teaspoon salt
1Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add carrots and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the carrots are soft, about 10 minutes.
2Carefully pour the mixture into a blender; let stand to cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Add habaneros, lime juice and salt; blend until smooth.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months. Stir before serving.
