Well here’s a sauce that looks more like baby food than a spectacular accompaniment. Give it a chance y’all! Spread this delicious and smooth mango habanero hot sauce over your favorite protein (or even veggies!) and you have one smokin’ hot meal (pun intended).
This hot sauce is not for the weak-hearted. A little bit goes a long way. It will clear out your sinuses and wake you up. But, I promise you, it is not one of those hot sauces that is hella hot and nothing else (man do I hate hot sauces that do nothing more than tear your mouth and insides up). This hot sauce is spicy (and gluten-free!), but it’s smooth sweet flavors from the mango and the sweet punch from the fresh habaneros give it a light and addicting flavor.
This recipe’s hotness (yup… gettin’ all technical!) can be altered depending on how many habanero peppers you put in the recipe (I may have put an extra pepper in my recipe to ramp up that PIZAZZ!) and if you leave the seeds in or not. The mango habanero hot sauce will be much spicier if you leave the seeds in. I left a few seeds here and there in my recipe. Sizzle.
Mango Habanero Hot Sauce:
- 8 Tablespoons gluten-free Soy Sauce
- 5 Tablespoons peanut butter
- 3 Tablespoons fresh honey
- 1/4 cup chopped green onion
- 1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes
- 4 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1-2 Tablespoons gluten-free Chili paste, depending on how spicy you want it
- Bring all the ingredients to a boil over medium heat. once boiling, bring to med-low heat and let simmer for 3-5 minutes, until sauce slightly thickens, stirring occasionally.
- Let cool to room temperature, use immediately, and leftovers are good to store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
