This is something I came up with when I saw some beautiful hot red peppers at the local market and thought about how to make a chilli sauce without any difficult ingredients. Thus I came up with the idea of blending them with semi-dried tomatoes. It is very potent so use sparingly to accompany dishes which need a bit of a 'kick'.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a frying pan and fry the peppers until they have browned all over. Be careful they spit!
  2. Put them in a plastic bag to sweat for 5 minutes and then peel removing the seeds and add to a small blender or multi-chopper.
  3. Chop semi-dried tomatoes and add to blender. Try to use plump semi- dried tomatoes in olive oil as they taste better.
  4. Add garlic powder, onion powder, vinegar and a little olive oil.
  5. Blend until mixture becomes a thick red paste.
  6. Keep in a small glass jar in the fridge covered with a layer of olive oil to keep it from spoiling. It should last several weeks.
