Hot Pepper Paste Like Sambal Oelek

"From Ricardo. I made it tonight and it's very good. It can be used in asian dishes, mexican... For a spicy dip, mix 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1/4 cup of homemade hot pepper paste or 1 tablespoon sambal oelek store-bought. Delicious in sandwiches and burgers."

Ready In:
1 cup




  • In food processor, mix all ingredients until you have a lumpy paste. Put in a saucepan (I used a small saucepan and it was perfect). Bring to boil and let simmer slowly about 15 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  • Pour in a jar and let cool. It's good up to one month in the fridge.

  1. You have no idea how grateful I'm for this recipe. Hot sauce is scarcely available here and when it is it comes at a very high price. Not being able to have it was a big big problem for me.Reminds me of a chili sauce I used to buy in Vancouver, I think it was a Vietnamese sauce and I couldn't find it ever since. It was in a clear plastic bottle and had a green cap. Thank you so much for this.
  2. Woooahhh! This does the trick! My lid (head) almost lifted when I bravely tested in pure form. I did not hold back on the hot peppers either. Made for 1-2-3 Tag
  3. This is just to easy!!! And this is so way HOT! Red HOT! I did use my vita mix. Adding habaneros for the red hot peppers.
