  • 6 habanero peppers
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 1/2 limes juiced
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar optional (for added sweetness, more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • In a saucepan over medium heat, sauté the garlic until aromatic (1 or 2 minutes).
  • Add the carrots, yellow onion, and water. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, immediately reduce heat to low and simmer the ingredients for 8 to 10 minutes (until the carrots soften).
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the habanero peppers, lime juice, sugar (optional), and salt. Stir to combine, then using a hand mixer (or blender) process the ingredients into a sauce. Add more sugar (optional) and salt to taste. 
  • Allow the sauce to cool to room temperature. Use immediately, or store in airtight containers (refrigerated) for up to two weeks. Note the sauce will get hotter as it ages.
