Garlic Habanero Hot Sauce Recipe

What a wonderful combination this is, abundant habanero peppers with their citrusy wonder and immensely satisfying spice, along with garlic. Spice up the bland food!


  • 2 cups habanero peppers, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 cups white vinegar
  • 20 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 8 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Set habanero peppers on a baking sheet and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  3. Roast in the oven 12-15 minutes or until soft and skins begin to blister.
  4. Heat a large pot to medium and add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer about 20 minutes, or until onion and garlic soften.
  5. Add roasted habanero peppers and simmer about 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer mixture to a food processor and puree until smooth. Alternatively, use an immersion blender and puree directly in the pot.
  7. Simmer another 5-10 minutes.
  8. Serve, or seal into sterilized bottles to allow flavors to truly develop.
