  • 2 Red Bell Peppers
  • 1 Habanero
  • 1 Chilli Pepper
  • 4 Tomatoes Big plum
  • 1 Onion Sweet
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil


  • Blend the peppers, Tomatoes and Onions
  • Add oil in the Pot
  • Pour the blended sauce (You don't need to heat the Oil). Note that if you heat the Oil the sauce will start to fry and we really don't want to fry the oil we just want to boil.
  • Boil on a low heat. (I set my stove on a mark of 4).
  • Boil on a low heat between 1 hour and 1 hour thirty minutes depending on the consistency you want.
