Easy Chinese Chili Sauce Recipe | 辣椒酱 (Làjiāo jiàng)
Love Spicy Chili Sauce? A staple condiment that you'll often times find in small jars at Asian Restaurants, is chili sauce. If you love spice, you'll know that a little chili sauce seems to give dishes an extra pop of flavor and pizzazz. + These go great with my Potsticker recipe.
My homemade chili sauce is made from only 6 ingredients! I like to use fresh red fresno chilies, but if you want something a bit spicer you could always opt for Korean Red Chili peppers or habaneros. Keep in mind that chili heat can vary from season to season, or by farm so it may be wise to sample/try to ensure you're happy with the level of spice before making a big batch.
makes approx. 1/4 cup (2 small side servings)
5 red fresno chilies
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. white wine vinegar
3 - 4 Tbsp. canola oil
1 clove garlic
TIP: Yes! You can make a large batch of this sauce and store it in a glass container. If you want to keep it for longer than a few days in the refrigerator, sterilize the glass as you would with making homemade jam.
