Creamy Habanero Salsa


Creamy Habanero Salsa


  • 6 Habanero peppers
  • 1 small garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste
1. Place peppers, garlic and water in a small saucepan (with the lid slightly covering it) over medium heat and cook until peppers are soft and tender, about 10-12 minutes. You will need to open your kitchen windows to keep the area well ventilated, or turn on the exhaust fan to avoid eye irritation. I live in an apartment, and usually turning on the exhaust fan and placing the lid on the saucepan is enough to avoid any discomfort from the pungent steam coming out of the cooking peppers.
2. Once cooked, remove the peppers and garlic from the saucepan and place into a blender with the remaining cooking water, which by this time has been reduced.
3. Let the peppers cool for some minutes and then turn your blender on to puree the peppers. Open the lid while the blender is still running and slowly add the oil in a steady stream. This last step will emulsify the salsa, giving it a creamy texture. Pour salsa into a small bowl and season with salt. Enjoy with some Steak and Chorizo Tacos!
