Fiery Habanero Pepper Hot Sauce

Spicy food goes hand in hand with Indian recipes. Being born in India, I am used to eating spicy food when growing up. Decades of living here in US has changed my taste buds and I no longer tolerate spice as I used to. We still do eat moderately spicy food and I have trained my boys as well to eat spicy food.

How hot is this Hot Sauce?

This Fiery Habanero Pepper Hot Sauce gives you all the heat you want and little more. Let me warn you that this sauce is not for faint hearted people. When I say Fiery Hot, I mean FIERY HOT! The recipe is a no cook recipe and all it needs is blending the ingredients together. It pairs so well with Mexican Enchiladas and Burritos. My husband drizzled a little on his Mac and Cheese this afternoon and said that it was the best Mac and Cheese he has eaten.

Other Hot Sauces – 

Any restaurant we go, we ask them to make the food spicy and on top of it have a bottle of hot sauce in our table to add on. The commercial hot sauces has such a strong after flavor to it that I dislike. I make my own spicy chili sauce / paste for Thai and Asian recipes. 

When making Italian recipes, my husband’s first request would be to make this spicy Arabbiata Sauce. I do add quite a bit of red chili flakes to any sauce I make, but that just gives it a raw spicy feeling. This Fiery Habanero Pepper Hot Sauce has a refreshing and at the same time really spicy flavor that it sort of feels right for the taste buds.

I am a part of a Facebook group called the Food Blogger Recipe Swap, where we are paired with other food bloggers and get to recreate their recipe. This helps us learn new recipes from bloggers in the different part of the world and also help make some friends. This group has been taken over by my dear friend and fellow blogger Mireille for the past couple of months.  This month I am cooking from Deborah’s blog and I chose to make this really flavorful and Fiery Habanero Pepper Hot Sauce.

I pretty much stuck to her recipe and just halved the quantity. This yielded me a good 1 cup of sauce which I will be storing for quite a while. It just needs a little drizzle to jazz up any food and this one cup of Fiery Habanero Pepper Hot Sauce will go a long way.

Growing Habanero peppers – 

We grew a lot of Habanero pepper when back in NY. Not realizing how spicy it would be the first year we planted about 4 plants and it yielded like crazy. We harvested a good 40 to 50 Habanero peppers every 2 weeks and it was just a shame not knowing how to use it. I froze quite a bit of them, but was not able to use it much at all because it was too got to use in every day cooking. 

My advice to any of you who grow peppers – Do not grow habanero pepper. It is just easier to buy a couple when we are lanning to cook with it. 

I was in fact planning to make Habanero jelly once but backed off my plan and used Jalapeno instead to make Jalapeno Jelly. I am so happy that I did not try this jelly with Habanero.  don’t think my family would or even myself would have handled the heat. If you haven’t tried making any kind of pepper jelly, then you must give it a try. This jelly tastes good not just with bread but also with dosai , Idli and Paratha.

    this is a very Caribbean style hot sauce and we use it very sparingly which is why it is so HOT – we just use maybe 1/2 teaspoon and sprinkle it over a plate of food

    I’m glad you liked it

    So awesome! I’ve never tried making habanero sauce at home, and now you tempt me to try it out. 🙂
    I’m not sure if we get habanero peppers here in Bangalore, India, where I live. Would you have any idea?

    I have not yet tried Habanero chilies but from your description they sound really really hot! The flavor combinations of the hot sauce sound very interesting and I’ll probably try to make it with regular chilies instead! Thank you so much for sharing this one!

    Ooh, the fella loved it extra spicy so I bet he would go bad for this fiery habanero pepper hot sauce. I wish I had this one when I competed at a work hot sauce competition too.

    Every time I try a shockingly hot meal that I think can’t be topped, I try something that go through the roof! I am sure this fiery habanero pepper hot sauce is the case and can’t wait to try it!
