Habanero BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by CoCaShe

I found this recipe on PepperFool.com and tried it when I had some extra habanero peppers and a craving for something spicy. I use it to baste chicken, pork or beef on the barbecue, or on burgers, although it is a bit spicy. I'm going to try it next with dark rum instead of water for some extra flavour. Remember to wear gloves when handling the habanero peppers, the smell and burning stay on your fingers for a LONG time!!

What's there not to love 'bout this sauce? Easy to put together, most ingredients on hand, easy to obtain ingredients if necessary, It is spicy, but not so much so you will be crying. It is a perfect compliment for chicken, seafood, or even beef, or ribs. I followed this exactly, didn't change one thing, and the taste was outstanding. I used this on shrimp, and also basted a turkey leg in it for another recipe for later in the week. This was a thick, wonderful sauce that was easy to apply to the item using the sauce, and was loved by all. Thank you so much! Made for *Hot and Sppcy Photo Game* Juen 2009
