Ingredients

  • 8 oz (225 g) red jalapeno peppers
  • 2 heads garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/3 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water (plus 1 teaspoon water to make the cornstarch slurry)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Instructions

  • Combine the peppers, garlic, salt, sugar, vinegar, and water in a blender. Blend on medium until chunky. Remove 1/4 of the blended mixture.
  • Turn the blender to high and liquify the remaining contents of the blender.
  • Strain the liquified mixture so that you are left with just the juices.
  • Add the strained juice and reserved chunky bits to a pot.
  • Meanwhile, add the cornstarch to a small bowl with 1 teaspoon water, stir to mix well to make a slurry.
  • Heat the pot over medium-high heat. Once warm, add the cornstarch slurry and bring to a boil.
  • After reaching a boil, remove from heat and allow to cool completely. The chili garlic sauce is ready to serve.
  • To store, transfer the chili garlic sauce to a clean mason jar and seal it. Store in the fridge for up to 1 month.
