My chili plants gave me dozens of chili during summer. Of course I had to try and use several of them. I dried & grinded them, made several varieties of olive oils, tried some spicy hot sauces and put the rest in the freezer to keep them longer. One of the outcomes is a hot chili sauce which I really like. In this post I want to share this recipe with you so you can make your food hotter 🙂

You can basically use any kind of chili. My favourite chili mix consists of lots of Jalapeños, 2 orange Habaneros, 2 Aji Limón, 1 Scorpion Moruga and a slice of Carolina Reaper.

Please don’t use the sauce like ketchup because the result of this recipe is hotter than hell. Use it more like Tabasco to spice things up.


  • ~ 200 g chilis  (use varieties you like)
  • 2 onions
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • half of a thumb-size of fresh ginger
  • 2.5 cups of water (1 cup = 2.5 dl)
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of tomato purée
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil (extra vergine)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt


  • Chop onions, ginger and garlic
  • Wash the chilis and cut them into big chunks
  • Heat the oil up and put the chilis together with onions, ginger and garlic into the pan. (Attention: Keep an eye on the essential oils, you may start crying because it feels like pepper-spray!)
  • Pour 1 cup of water into this pan and let it cook for about 30 minutes
  • Put it away from the cooktop and let all cool down
  • Now put it in a blender or use a high bowl and an immersion blender
  • Pour all through a strainer
  • Put the chili purée and the remaining ingredients (salt, sugar, vinegar, water, tomato purée) into the pan and heat it up again
  • Cook all together for 5 minutes
  • Now you can show how much courage you have: Taste it! 🤯 Here you can add other spices, more of tomato purée and so on. But be aware: The sauce is hot. I mean really hot. 🔥
  • After you survived (😆) the previous step you may put the sauce into preserving jars! Have fun 🙂
