Chipotle Hot Pepper Sauce

Chipotle is a smoke dried jalapeno pepper, and it can be used to make super-hot sauce recipes.  Here is a chipotle hot pepper sauce recipe to set your tongues on fire.


  1. Chipotle peppers – 12 (use fewer amounts if you prefer less spicy sauce).
  2. Garlic – 3 cloves
  3. Kosher salt/sea salt – 1 Tbsp.
  4. Light brown sugar/ regular sugar – 1Tbsp.
  5. Apple cider vinegar -1 and 1/3 cup
  6. Onion – ½
  7. Worcestershire sauce – 3 to 4 dashes
  8. Juice of half lime


  • Remove stems from the pepper (you can keep the top) and chop them roughly. You can throw away the seeds and veins of a few peppers if you like it less hot. Put the chopped peppers into a blender/food processor and add apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt and blend till the mixture had liquefied completely. Keep this aside.
  • Pour a little olive oil in a thick bottomed pan and sauté the onions for a few minutes. Add garlic and sauté for two more minutes. Add the pepper-vinegar mixture+1/2 cup water and bring it to a boil.
  • Add Worcestershire sauce (add lime juice if you want a citrus flavor in it) and let the mixture simmer till it thickens. Tada! Your chipotle hot pepper sauce is ready. Transfer the sauce into an airtight bottle and refrigerate.
