When I first got my dehydrater I had a lot of fun experimenting with drying all kinds of different things - as a result I had a bunch of dried habanero peppers to find uses for! I dried the habaneros whole, stem and all and then to prep them for this (or any recipe) all I do is remove the stem - I love the heat so I leave in the seeds but you could remove some or all of them if you like. The number of servings will depend on how you use the sauce - you will end up with around 1 cup and a half or so
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 -3 dried habanero pepper, depending on how spicy you want your sauce
- 1 large red bell pepper
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Chop the bell pepper and grind the dried habaneros into a powder (I use a coffee grinder for this and leave all the seeds in - you could remove some or all of the seeds before grinding if you like).
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil and then simmer for 8-10 minutes.
- Puree the sauce in a blender or food processor and enjoy!
