My new most favorite way to make hot sauce!
I was looking for other ways to use up some of the large bounty of jalapenos that hubby’s garden produced. I had lots of hot sauce recipes, but
this one crossed by and I just had to try it. We had a friend that made some amazing smokey hot sauce years ago, but they could not get their husband to remake it, so i was hoping this would be close and it was! Woohoo!
All the wonderful goodness in the instant pot
Smokey Hot Sauce
Such a wonderful flavor and from the instant pot!
I have a friend that smokes my salt, but you can get multiple flavors at your local spice company.
1 lb jalapeños with 1 poblano in the weight
1/4 cup Shredded Carrot,
6 Cloves of Garlic, peeled and smashed
1 Roasted Red Pepper, chopped (I use the jarred ones)
1 cup White Vinegar
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup Water
1 Tbsp Smoked Sea Salt
2 Chipotle Chiles in Adobo
Cut the tops off of the peppers and discard. Chop the peppers in thirds. Add to the stainless steel inner liner of the Instant Pot.
Add in the remaining ingredients.
Close the lid of the pressure cooker and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position.
Pressure cook (High Pressure) 2 minutes.
When cooking cycle ends, LET IT FULLY NATURALLY RELEASE PRESSURE. (Do not do a Quick Release or manually release the pressure. You don’t want to inhale those pepper fumes!)
After all of the pressure is out of the pot, open the lid carefully, facing it away from your face. Don’t breathe in the fumes!
Let the mixture cool, then transfer it to a blender and blend until smooth.
Strain into a large container
This is an amazing hot sauce! The additional adobo pepper and smoked salt add that additional woot woot!
I’ve started reducing the spice in recipes just so i can use more hot sauce
Original recipe had fresno’s and other ideas for add ins! It makes a ton, so order some bottles to have on hand!
