  • 1/3 cup of natural cane sugar adding a subtle sweetness without overpowering
  • 1/2 - 1 tablespoon of aromatic chili powder adding a smoky and robust taste
  • 2-3 cloves of freshly harvested garlic releasing their pungent and aromatic essence
  • 1/2 tablespoon of fragrant onion powder lending a subtle and savory flavor
  • 1/2 tablespoon of freshly ground black pepper adding a touch of warmth and depth
  • 6 oz of luscious canned crushed tomatoes sourced from vine-ripened tomatoes for a rich flavor
  • 1 1/2 succulent Roma tomatoes hand-picked at the peak of ripeness
  • 1/2 teaspoon of aromatic allspice infusing the sauce with hints of clove and cinnamon
  • 1 cup of fiery cayenne pepper sauce carefully crafted for a spicy kick
  • 1/2 chopped onion providing a delicate and sweet onion flavor
  • 1 cup of roasted bell peppers adding a smoky and sweet essence to the sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups of refined white vinegar carefully selected for its mild acidity
  • 1 teaspoon of pristine salt enhancing the flavors harmoniously


  • In a large pot, combine the tomatoes, onion, bell peppers, garlic, habanero peppers, jalapeno peppers, chipotle peppers, and white vinegar.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for about 30 minutes until the vegetables are softened and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Puree the sauce in a blender or food processor until it is smooth and creamy.
  • Return the sauce to the pot and stir in the salt, sugar, and allspice. Simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes until slightly thickened.
  • Allow the sauce to cool before serving or storing.


-If you want to reduce the heat in this, omit the habanero peppers or replace them with a milder variety of pepper.
-For added flavor, try adding some smoked paprika or dried oregano to the sauce.
-If you don't have fresh vegetables, you can substitute canned or frozen versions.
