Fresh Jalapeño Hot Sauce

  • TOTAL TIME:
  • SERVINGS: 1 1/2 cups

The inspiration for this sauce by chef Abraham Conlon is cafreal, an Indian braise with Portuguese roots. It’s a sprightly, all-purpose sauce that’s vividly flavored with cilantro, chiles, garlic and lime juice. (Seed and de-rib some or all of the chiles for a milder version.) Conlon recommends stirring the sauce into a green chile stew, using it as a marinade for chicken, or sprinkling it on pork or fish tacos.
