Jalapeno Lime Hot Sauce
- Ready in: 30 minutes prep; 30 minutes to cook
- Serves: 6
- Complexity: very easy
Jalapenos are the most popular hot pepper grown in the U.S. Like a bell pepper, the green variety of a jalapeno is the unripe variety. Red jalapenos are hard to find, but they are sweet, spicy, and delicious.
- 4 oz. green jalapeno peppers (about 4 large)
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
Remove the stems from the peppers and roughly chop the rest. Simmer all ingredients in a small pan for about 20 minutes, or until the peppers are soft. Purée the hot sauce in a food processor, being careful to leave room for steam to vent while puréeing.
