I think Spicy might be my favorite food group. ok, maybe it just goes with every food group? Either way, it is a very important addition to food for me. At least one bottle of hot sauce comes to the table at every meal. and I love experimenting with new recipes because The flavor COMBINATIONS are endless! This one here is sweet, spicy & savory all in one. My favorite things to add it to are taco's, 'ulu chowder, avocado toast & stir fry's. It also makes a great addition to bring your homemade salsas up a notch!

Ingredients

1/2 of a fresh pineapple or approx 3 cups of pineapple chunks

1 cup diced onion

2 cloves garlic

1 tsp salt

1 tbl rice vinegar

The juice of 1 lime

1-3 tsp chili paste, depending on how spicy you want it

1/2 bunch cilantro, about 1 cup packed

 

Method

Cut the top & bottom off of the pineapple. then cut carefully cut away the skin from top to bottom. Slice the pineapple in half & then into quarters so you can easily cut the corn out. Then cut into slices & Place them into the blende. blend on high & Let it run for about 1 min to break down the fibers as much as possible. Next Add the rest of the ingredients except the cilantro and blend on high again. Last, add the cilantro & blend onlu on a low-medium speed, just to slightly break up cilantro but not turn the hot sauce completely green. 

 

notes

If you don't have access to fresh pineapple you can use strained canned pineapple as a substitute. You can also use pineapple juice if you prefer a thinner CONSISTENCY. If you opt to use juice instead, cut the pineapple measurement in half.
