  • 5 habanero chilies with seeds if you like it fiery hot, seeds removed if you want to mellow down the heat
  • 10 ounce mango pulp chopped or pureed
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup rice vinegar or white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ¼ cup sugar If you want to cut down the heat, I skipped sugar


  • Wear your latex gloves first before you do anything. Wash habanero peppers and pat dry them in paper towel which you can toss in trash after use along with gloves. Remove the green stem on the chilies and roughly chop them. You can cut them into halves, as you need to blend everything later. So don’t bother dicing the habanero chilies very fine. I left the seeds on for half of the chilies and removed for other half as I was aiming for spicy sauce that was bearable for my palate. For milder spice please remove all the seeds from all the habanero chilies.
  • Throw in all the ingredients into a blender, blend until smooth.
  • Tip the sauce into a sauce pan and simmer on medium heat for 10-15 minutes with constant stirring.
  • Allow the sauce to cool completely. You can press the sauce through a sieve to remove seeds and residues, but I decided not to sieve it.
  • Transfer the sauce into sterile jars filling it up ¾ leaving space on top for expansion while you store. Place sauce in air tight bottles and store in refrigerator until use.
  • Drizzle sauce over tacos, grilled shrimp, ribs, chicken – everything that you want to kick up the heat and flavors! You can gift bottles of these to friends and family too.



Recipe makes about 2 cups sauce, that is approximately 16 ounce!
