Habanero Sauce Recipe

I was blown away by a habanero sauce I had during a trip to Mexico a few years ago. Blisteringly hot yet full of the incredible flavour of the habaneros and freshness of the lime juice, this is one of those recipes that I always make for a summer bbq.

Habanero Sauce Ingredients

1/4 of an onion
1/2 clove of garlic
5 finely chopped habaneros
juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup of water
3 table spoons of white vinegar
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil


Finely chop and fry the onion and garlic until soft. Add the white vinegar and finely chopped habaneros  and cook for a further minute before removing from the heat. Add the lime juice, salt and water.

I find the consistency a little variable so you may need to play around with the amounts of liquid you put in until you get a consistency of sauce you like.

    I found your recipe like it was a gift from the gods =) We have a habenero plant and I had no idea what to do with them aside from drying them.

    I was wondering if this recipe keeps in jars or something? If I bottle it in steralised jar and then in a water bath? And refigerate after opening?

      Linhda N – Yes, it should keep fine in sterilized jars or bottles.
