  • 1 mango peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Next, combine the peppers, mango, onion, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and salt in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Once everything is combined, transfer the sauce to a glass jar or bottle and store it in the fridge for up to two weeks.


  • This sauce will last up to two weeks in the fridge.
  • When you're ready to use it, simply add a few spoonfuls to your favorite dishes for a bit of extra heat. 
  • Always use a clean spoon to remove the desired amount of sauce from the jar.
