How to Make Homemade Garlic Habanero Hot Sauce
1. Use your trusty knife and slice the carrot, onion, and tomatoes into big ol’ chunks.
2. Put them and the garlic cloves in a pan, drizzle them with the olive oil, and roast these puppies at 425 degrees (Fahrenheit, or Celsius if that’s your style) for about 15 minutes.
Take this time to get all those vegetable scraps and chuck ’em in the compost, or to reflect on your day.
3. Plop the roasted vegetables into a blender or food processor along with all the other ingredients. Blend ’til you can’t blend no mo’… and then blend a little bit more.
Bam! That’s it. Thus completes the habanero life cycle, from plant to sauce:
This is pretty dang spicy, and has endless uses! Slather it on steak, chuck it on chicken, use it as a decongestant, etc., etc.
