Ingredients for Mango Habanero Sauce
Habanero Peppers – Habanero peppers are small peppers and they are much hotter than jalapeno peppers so use caution when handling them. Choose whole peppers in yellow, orange, or red – red being the hottest. Remove the membrane and seeds to tame the heat slightly, although they’ll still be spicy!
Mango – Fresh or frozen mango chunks work in this recipe. Be sure fresh mangos are sweet and ripe.
Base – Honey, vinegar, and lime juice help balance the habaneros and mango and thicken the sauce. Other sweeteners like maple syrup or brown sugar are acceptable, and red wine vinegar can be switched out for the apple cider variety. Lemon juice can be used if lime juice isn’t available.
Variations – Kick up the heat and add a dash or two of Tabasco or some red pepper flakes.

- Add garlic, salt, and honey and process until smooth (as per the recipe below).
