If you haven't tried making your own chilli sauce before, you need should give it a try. It is so simple to make and tastes so fresh when compared to a store bought sauce. This one is a tomato based sauce and will last for up to a week in the fridge.


600g tomatoes

8 red chillis

4 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon of sea salt (or to taste)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Serves: makes quite a lot, enough for 20 - 30 people as a sauce/dip


  1. Pre heat the oven to 200c

  2. Place the tomatoes and chillis on a roasting tray and roast for 10 minutes

  3. Remove from the oven and slip the skins off the tomatoes, also remove the stalks from both the tomatoes and chillis

  4. Add the tomatoes, chillis and the other ingredients to a blender and blitz

  5. Chill in the fridge and put it on whatever you like your chilli sauce on!
