Homemade Chilli Sauce

So this is for those of us who LOVE spice! This sauce is super hot, but it is seriously amazing on steaks, or even thrown into a pasta dish for extra flavour! 

Makes 2 cups of chilli sauce. 
Ingredients:
3 tomatoes
1 medium brown onion
4 long red chilli, tops cut off (seeds kept inside!) 
1 red capsicum, deseeded 
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 lime, juiced
pinch of salt & pepper
1/2 tbsp mustard powder 
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 
2 tbsp olive oil

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, add chilli, onion, capsicum, garlic, lime juice, salt, pepper and olive oil. Blend until each ingredient is finely diced.
  2. In a large, non-stick pan, heat a splash of olive oil over a medium heat.
  3. Add the chilli mixture into the pan and stir for 5 minutes, or until mixture has completely softened.
  4. Add the tomatoes into the food processor and blend for 2 minutes.
  5. Add tomatoes to the pan and add mustard powder, cayenne pepper and a touch more salt. Leave to simmer for 10 minutes. 
  6. Take off heat and leave to cool. 
  7. Once cooled, place into a blender and blend until a paste like consistency. 
  8. Using a funnel, funnel the chilli sauce into a bottle, or air tight container. Keep in fridge for up to 4-6 weeks. 

This recipe can also be frozen! So don't be afraid to make a big batch and freeze it.
