I may have gone a bit overboard this season and grown too many peppers. So, this weekend, I decided to use them all in different recipes! Over the past two weeks of harvesting in my garden, I have collected plenty of produce, including Jalapeno serrano, Anaheim banana peppers, habanero, tabasco chili, and red chilies! The habanero peppers are incredibly hot! 

At first, it seemed like a good idea to grow so many peppers since they are versatile chilis that can be used in both sweet and hot sauces, depending on what I decide to make. I also usually cook with a lot of peppers and even add some to my amazing foul recipe. Sometimes if I feel like adding a bit of heat to my tabbouleh salad, I can also chop up some chili peppers and throw them in.

While these are great uses for my peppers, I still think I grew too many. My solution was to use all the peppers I have been harvesting over the past two weeks and make each one into a different recipe! For instance, I made plenty of pickled chilies with banana peppers and sliced jalapeno. These recipes were so tasty and had a perfect balance of acidity and spiciness. You can also add pickled peppers to nearly any dish! Then I used my super hot habanero peppers to make this recipe, which is a habanero mango sauce. I also decided to add some cinnamon to compliment the flavors of the mango and the peppers. 

How to Handle Habanero Peppers?

Warning!!! You should wear gloves when making this recipe. These habanero chili peppers are so spicy that you need to keep yourself as safe as possible. You may also want a face mask at some point when you char the peppers. It is also essential to keep good air circulation in the house going. So, open the windows and put the fan on. 

I was okay throughout making this recipe until I changed my gloves and forgot to put on a new pair. I accidentally touched the peppers and then directly touched my lips. It was such a big mistake my lips were on fire. Even just breathing in the habanero fumes made me cough all over the place. When making this recipe, please be as careful as possible. Although you need to be cautious when making this hot sauce, the result was extraordinary. The recipe made a scorching, sweet sauce full of flavor. If you find it too hot, you can also dilute it. 

How Can You Use Mango Habanero Sauce?

Mango habanero hot sauce is a tasty, flavorful sauce that can be added to many meat dishes. It is especially tasty when paired with pork. Mango habanero hot sauce has a uniquely sweet flavor compared to other hot sauces, which makes it interesting to pair with other flavors. You can also add some to your macaroni and cheese or spice up your scrambled eggs. 

How to Dilute Hot Sauce?

You can dilute hot sauce by adding acidic ingredients such as vinegar or lemon juice. The acidity of these ingredients will help reduce the heat and make the sauce saucier. You can even use more honey if you want to make the recipe a bit sweeter. 

How Can You Reduce the Heat?

I cut down on the heat by removing some of the seeds in the peppers. The seeds are the spiciest part of peppers, so if you want to make the spice more manageable, you should clear the peppers out before making your hot sauce. When making my hot sauce, I also left some peppers whole, which made it still very spicy.

Ingredient List

Preparation

1.
Heat a cast iron pan, and add the garlic, the habaneros, and the onion halves. Char on all sides. Take out the garlic after 4 minutes, then the onion after 10 minutes. The habanero will take about 15 minutes to char all around.
