Roasted Red Jalapeno Pepper Hot Sauce

Roasted Red Jalapeno Pepper Hot Sauce Recipe


  • 1.5 pounds red jalapeno peppers – about 25 peppers or so.
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Slice the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and remove the stems. Set them onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes, or until the skins blister.
  2. Remove from heat and cover with aluminum foil or a towel to allow them to steam. Peel off the skins and discard.
  3. Set the peppers into a food processor.
  4. Heat a small pan to medium heat and add chopped onion and garlic with a splash of olive oil. Cook about 5 minutes to soften.
  5. Add all remaining ingredients and heat through. Into the food processor they go.
  6. Process the sauce until smooth. You can also use a food mill if you’d like your sauce to be thick and consistent.
  7. Test for salt and serve!
