Serrano Pepper Hot sauce Recipe


  • ½ pound Serrano peppers
  • ½ onion
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • The juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp Mexican oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 10 cilantro springs
  • ½ cumin


  • Rinse the Serrano peppers and cut the stems off.
  • Sauté the chopped onion and garlic in a hot pan.
  • Add the Mexican oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir in the cumin and keep on cooking until the onion starts to turn golden brown.
  • Add the water, vinegar, and Serrano peppers. Bring the whole mix to a simmer.
  • Add the mix to a blender and add the cilantro spring and juice of the lemon.
  • Blend until the desired consistency. It’s a good idea to keep the sauce a little bit chunky.
  • Strain the sauce through fine layers of cheesecloth or pour it directly into bottles. Store the sauce in a sealed bottle or a Mason jar and keep it in the fridge.
