Serves 16 servings
Makes 1 cup


  • 4 habanero chiles, stemmed, halved and de-seeded

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 mango, diced

  • Kosher salt

  • Water, as needed


  1. In a medium saucepot, add habaneros, garlic cloves and carrot. Cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat.

  2. Lower the heat to medium, and simmer 8 to 10 minutes until carrots are tender. (It is very important to make sure the kitchen is well-ventilated during this step!)

  3. Transfer the chiles and garlic to a food processor (but do not discard cooking liquid). Add 1/4 cup reserved chile water, cider vinegar, lemon juice, diced mango and salt.

  4. Purée the mixture about 30 seconds to 1 minute until completely blended. If too thick, thin out with water. Taste, and adjust vinegar or salt amount, if necessary. Keep in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
