Extra Spicy Pepper Sauce; Recipe from my #NaijaDiaries

Habañero peppers, we all know are extra spicy and the yellow ones (Ose Nsukka) are so flavour rich. I was born in Nsukka, so I grew up cooking with these peppers, the unique flavour it gives food is just amazing. When @forthworthfarms (check them out on Instagram) gifted me a bagful of these peppers, I just knew I was going to create another pepper sauce recipe.


This extra spicy pepper sauce is so essential in our everyday cooking; for splashing over favourite meals, spicing up boring foods, for that extra flavour in stews or even soups, as salad dressing, smallchops sauce and even in making your sandwiches extra spicy. The list is endless. The absolute best thing about making your own sauce?? You can bottle it up in small chic container, put in your handbag and take it with you to restaurants. Oh yes, some restaurant foods need spicing up...

Usually, when I make my pepper/chilli sauce, I use food processor to process some of the ingredients. But for this recipe, I used blender to blend all ingredients except for the seasoning cubes and oil. Here is how to go about making this sauce:

Ingredients Required

1 pack habañero peppers from @Forthworthfarms (I used 28 pieces)
1 medium red bell pepper
1 medium green bell pepper
1 and 1/2 onions
1/2 cup canola oil (or any oil of choice)
2 maggi chicken
4 Nchuawu leaves (scent leaves)
I pack spring onions (from Shoprite Nigeria)
Water (About 1/4 cup just to make blending easier)

Instructions.

1. Add all ingredients in a blender except for the oil and seasoning cubes. Blend until smooth.

2. Add the blended mix in to a sauce pan or pot, place over a medium heat, boil until all the water evapourates.

3. Add oil, seasoning cubes and extra 4 tablespoons water. Simmer for 5 - 6 minutes.

4. Allow to cool down before refrigerating.
