This sauce is very hot, but not too insane. For maximum heat increase habaneros as desired.

  • Heat the oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cook and stir the carrots, oil, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until soft, about 5 minutes; transfer to a blender. Add the whole habanero peppers, water, lime juice, white vinegar, and tomato to blender; blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Transfer mixture to a saucepan, and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. This gives the sauce a more liquid consistency.

The recipe has 2 measurements backwards: 1. Carrots should be 1 Cup (not 1 tablespoon) 2. Water should be 1 Tablespoon - give or take (not 1 Cup) That should help out considerably. Add Habaneros as desired!!! Read More

I really hoped that I'd like this but I honestly did not enjoy this at all. It was definitely hot enough but I agree that the tomato flavor was just too much and I think it really needed some seasoning. Read More

I have made this recipe a few times and its a big hit at dinner parties. I make the "Tex Mex Pork" from Allrecipes and put the shredded pork in its sauce over pasta and add the "Habanero Hot Sauce" with sour cream as a condiment and everyone loves the combination! The only modification I make to this recipe is I cut open my habanero and remove the seeds and stem. My husband and I love hot food, but we managed to ruin a different recipe when we added whole habaneros because it was so hot that we couldn't eat the stew we had slaved over for an entire afternoon. I opt to put my habaneros in a pyrex and steam the habaneros in a double boiler for about 7 minutes. I think this mellows out the hotness of the sauce without losing any flavor. I add everything to a food processor minus the tomato and it makes a delicious fairly spicy sauce that pleases the masses. Read More

This is a delicious sauce. I only had half the amount of vinegar it calls for but it turned out awesome anyway. I can't wait to make it with the amount called for. Read More

I liked this my son said it wasn't hot enough! I love the fact that I didn't have to wear gloves to handle the peppers but instead put the whole peppers right into the blender! Now I just have to figure out the best method to store this! On second thought it might not last long enough for that to be a concern! Read More

Ive been eating a belizian hot sauce for years and finaly decided to try making it myself. This recipe came pretty close though i must say i used 4 peopers and it was so hot i couldnt't' eat it so i doubled the other ingredients and decreased the overall pepper to other ingredient ratio. Now its perfect. I would reccomend starting with two peppers an increasing as you go by taste and to pur preference. Thanks! Read More
