I always like to have a spicy hot sauce on hand. this one follows my simple equation of :
Hot peppers+Balancing act+acid+sweet+salt+spice = Chili Sauce
I follow equations especially when inspired by pantry items. So, this one is:
Serrano, jalapeños + summer Early Girl tomatoes,fresh garlic+lemon juice+dates+pink Himalayan salt+coriander powder ,fennel THAT'S IT !!!!
6 serranos, stemmed
6 jalapeños , stemmed
4 medium tomatoes, really ripe
10-12 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 lemons, juiced
3 dates ( I had Mejdool), soaked
1 tablespoon coriander powder ( the coriander was lightly toasted before grinding)
1 teaspoon fennel powder
Salt to taste
- Everything , except the lemon juice was finely processed in the food processor.
- Place the sauce in bowl. Add lemon juice and salt. Taste to adjust seasoning.
- Use with Tacos
- Use with stir fries
- Use as dip or add spice to your dip
- Use to spice up your marinade
- Use to up your BBQ sauce
