How to Make Piri Piri Sauce

  1. Cut the chili peppers in half and remove the seeds. If you want a spicier sauce, leave some seeds in.
  2. Peel the garlic cloves.
  3. Put all the ingredients into a blender or food processor.
  4. Blend everything thoroughly until it becomes a paste.
  5. If the sauce is too thick, you can add a bit of water.
  6. The Piri Piri sauce is ready. You can use it right away, but it's best to let it sit in the fridge for a few hours or even overnight to let the flavors infuse.

Please be careful when handling hot peppers, use gloves and avoid contact with your eyes.
