Daddy John's A** Kicking Habanero Hot Sauce

Melanie Campbell


Since this site is celebrating "Father's Day", I asked my mother how can I celebrate my father on this site.

She came across some of his recipes and came across this one. Dad makes this sauce every time he cooks chicken, steaks, ribs, etc.

So dad, if you see this..."HAPPY FATHER'S DAY"!!! I hope this recipe wins you and mom a blue ribbon from Just A Pinch. If not, look in the cupboard by the washer.

How to Make Daddy John's A** Kicking Habanero Hot Sauce


  1. Heat the oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cook and stir the carrots, oil, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until soft, about 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor. Add the habanero peppers, water, lime juice, vinegar, tomato and lime zest to the blender/processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste, transfer the mixture to a saucepan and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Simmering at the end gives the sauce a more liquid consistency.
