Not only is this fiery sauce full of heat, it’s full of flavor too.

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 Gusto™ Mixed Hot Peppers, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ inch ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. cayenne
  • ½ tsp. chili flakes
  • 1 lb. Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup rice vinegar


  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium/high heat. Add onion and Gusto™ peppers and sauté until onions begin to brown (about 5 minutes).
  2. Add garlic, ginger, all of the spices, salt and sugar. Cook for 2 minutes, add Roma tomatoes and vinegar. Turn heat down to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until Roma tomatoes begin to break down (about 12 minutes).
  3. Place the cooked sauce in a blender. Be very careful putting hot ingredients into a blender; place a kitchen towel over top of the blender and place your hand on top BEFORE turning it on. This way the lid will not come off while you are blending.
  4. Pour puréed mixture through a fine sieve over a medium bowl. Push on the solids to extract all the liquid. Cool and refrigerate.

This recipe yields 2 cups and will last for up to one month in the fridge.
