Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce

Tropically-sweet with teeth…

Mango and habanero pepper are quite the pair. They are perfect foils in the kitchen, with just enough tropical sweetness in common to blend perfectly. There are so many twists on mango habanero sauces, but one of our favorites brings fresh ginger into the equation. The exotic warmth it brings to this sauce really ratchets up the flavor here.

For extreme eaters, this is a good all-purpose sauce.  You can use it as a deliciously intense fish taco sauce or as an fiery dipping sauce for fried chicken fingers. It’s also a terrific alternative to salsa as a chip dip (if you like fruitier dips). If you want a variant that’s better with barbecue, see our mango habanero barbecue sauce that also has a twist of ginger.

Mango Habanero Hot Sauce

Sweet zip!

If you like your hot sauce to have a little tropical flair, then there are few that deliver more than a mango habanero hot sauce. The extreme heat is a perfect match with tropical sweetness. And there’s even a slight hint of savory Indian cuisine and Tex Mex in this recipe with the addition of a dash of both chili and curry powders.

You can use this sauce in a lot of ways. The tropical sweetness makes mango habanero hot sauce a perfect dipper for chicken satay and chicken fingers. The same goes for beef skewers (the curry twist really shines here.) You can also use this hot sauce as a barbecue glaze, too. It’s surprisingly refreshing with barbecue compared to some of the heavier ketchup and molasses based sauces out there. And don’t forget the burgers. Skip the traditional ketchup and mustard and dash a little of this hot sauce on instead. You’ll be surprised with the results.

Obviously mango habanero hot sauce is super tasty, but always remember that habanero peppers sit at the upper end of the pepper scale. Be careful when preparing. Wear kitchen gloves and know how to treat chili burn just in case.
