Belizean Habanero Hot Sauce
From EatingWell: September/October 2013
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
- 1/2 cup chopped carrots
- 1 cup water
- 3 fresh habanero chiles, stems and seeds removed, chopped
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Heat 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.
- Carefully pour the mixture into a blender; let stand to cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Add habaneros, lime juice and salt; blend until smooth.
