Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1¼ cups sauce
  • ¾ pound fresh Fresno chilies*, stemmed and coarsely chopped, do not remove the seeds
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon gourmet Sicilian sea salt (or ordinary sea salt)
  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
  2. Spoon the mixture into your blender and cover. Blend on medium speed for 2 minutes or until smooth. Alternatively, you can use an immersion blender to puree the sauce in the saucepan.
  3. Strain through a sieve to remove any remaining seeds.
Chili Option: You can substitute red jalapeno or serrano chilies for the Fresno chilies, if desired.
