Papaya Habanero Hot Sauce


This is terribly hot as well as exciting for me! I claim no originality with this having read something like this in a few different places. All I know is that it makes me very happy, hopefully it will you to–if you like hot and sweet together.


  • 3 (4 if you like it blazing hot) habanero peppers, remove stems and retain seeds, minced fine
    [CAUTION: Use utensils or rubber gloves handling peppers. You will know pain if you don’t]
  • 1/2 to 2/3rds cup fresh papaya, mashed to a pulp
  • 3/4 cup of raisins
  • 1 cup minced onion
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 TSP ground turmeric
  • 1/4 cup malt vinegar (red wine vinegar also works in a pinch)
  • 2 TBSP olive oil


  • Heat sauté pan, and add 1 TBSP olive oil
  • Dump in all ingredients listed above
  • Stir regularly making sure that no burning takes place
  • After 5 minutes, reduce heat and let simmer an additional 3-5 minutes
  • Let cool to room temperature
  • Puree in blender or food processor
  • For best flavour, let sit in refrigerator overnight covered

Then serve on tacos, burritos, with chips or eggs. An epic fool-proof topping.
