It was a miserable rainy day today so I spent my morning preserving fruit and veges that were getting a bit old. Nice way to spend a wet day inside. Here’s a nice Hot Sauce recipe I used to use of old tomatoes. Yum!
Homemade Mexican hot sauce
1 Kilo tomatoes
2-10 Serrano chiles, depending on how hot you like it! (You can really use any type and add as much as you want)You’re going to blend this salsa, so start with a small amount of chile, and add more to taste if it doesn’t have enough kick!
4 cloves garlic
About a 2 TBSP of vinegar of your choice
A bunch of coriander or parsley (optional)
Salt to taste
Pre- heat your grill to high, arrange the tomatoes on a baking tray and place close to the heat source. If your using the big serrano chiles, add them to the oven as well to soften out their vege taste. If you’re using the smaller Thai chiles or habenaros, then you don’t need to bother.
Broil for about 20 minutes, or until starting to blacken a bit, and bursting and shriveling.
Take out and wait for them to cool a bit. When you can handle them, slip of the blackened skins, and throw the meat into a blender. Add your garlic, chiles and vinegar to the blender and puree until smooth.
Add salt to taste and add more chile if it’s not spicy enough for you. You can also add more vinegar if you think it needs to be more sour. The flavors here should be pretty robust, as you’re only going to be adding a small quantity of it to your food.
This sauce will compliment any Mexican meal, and is best served as a table sauce, so people can spice up their food as they like.
Let me know if you would like more recipes- I spend a decent chunk of my week experimenting with food so am happy to post some up!
