Mango-Chilli Hot Sauce Recipe

This is one of our favorite sauces to use with barbecued or fried chicken. The sweetness of the Mango offsets some of the spiciness of the Chillies. The best thing about this sauce is that you can completely adjust the spiciness as much as you like depending on what chili’s you use. When I last made this I went for a combination of jalapenos, bird’s eye chili’s, and a scotch bonnet chili. The lime’s give it a nice zesty taste and adds some much needed acidity to the sauce. The Mango’s provide an incredible flavor and sweetness. 

If you make this sauce we find it goes best with chicken but don’t let that stop you from using it with whatever grilled, smoked or fried food you want. For a perfect combination use this as a dip for beer can chicken and watch it elevate your dish to the next level.

Flavor Profile

Sweetness: The dominant flavor in Mango-Chilli hot sauce is the natural sweetness of ripe mangoes. This sweetness provides a delightful contrast to the heat of the chili peppers. It’s important to note that the sweetness can vary depending on the ripeness of the mangoes used.

Heat: The heat level of Mango-Chilli hot sauce largely depends on the type and quantity of chili peppers incorporated. Common choices include jalapeños, habaneros, Scotch bonnets, or even ghost peppers for those who crave intense heat. The spiciness adds complexity and depth to the sauce’s overall flavor.

Tanginess: Many Mango-Chilli hot sauces incorporate vinegar, which imparts a tangy note to the sauce. This acidity not only enhances the flavor but also helps preserve the sauce.

Aromatic Spices: They aren’t just included for their fiery kick, whatever chilli peppers you use will add a unique flavor which you can switch and change to suit your own palette or to just try something new every time!
