Garlic Chili Sauce – Low Carb Keto | Saucy Sunday

Garlic Chili Sauce – Low Carb Keto | Saucy Sunday

July 26, 2019 13 By William Morgan


Welcome all! Papa G here. Today is Saucy
Sunday! It’s where we focus primarily on
low carbohydrate recipes for sauces, condiments,
and dressings. Most of the videos will be
short and to the point. Just something to
help add a little flavor to your low
carbohydrate diet. Let’s get started. For this
week Saucy Sunday, we’ll be making a
low carbohydrate garlic chili sauce. You can
usually find this pre-made at your local
grocer, but making this homemade is so
much better.
Besides being very easy to make, I’ll
show you why making your own is much
better. The number one reason is heat.
Chili Peppers come in a large variety of
flavors and heat levels. Most traditional
chili sauces are made with Thai peppers.
I didn’t want this sauce to be quite so
hot, so I opted to use chillies in a
lower Scoville level. I wanted to use
serrano and jalapeno peppers for this
sauce, but I couldn’t find any serrano
chilies so I’m substituting Fresno
peppers. Fresno’s are very close in heat to
jalapenos, but I find it has a bit more
depth of flavor and smokiness. To help
control the heap just a bit, we’ll remove
the seeds and membranes from the Fresno
peppers. After removing the tops, simply
cut in half and under running water,
gently remove the seeds and membrane
with your thumb.
The only prep for the jalapeno peppers
besides washing is to remove the stems
or tops. Place the Fresno peppers in a
food processor. Add the jalapeno peppers.
This sauce can be as complex or as
simple as you want. Here’s an example of
what I mean. I’m using raw garlic in my
recipe, but you can opt for roasted
garlic – creating a totally different
flavor profile. For a really great how-to
video on how to roast garlic,
check out Dot2Trot’s video. She has
great step-by-step instructions. I’ll
leave a link in the description if you
want to check it out. Add some salt. Now I
like my sauce very garlicky, so I’m
adding about one tablespoon of garlic
powder.
We’ll balance the heat with some acidity
by adding some rice vinegar; and just a
little lime juice. Place the lid on and
process until pureed. Scrape down the
sides as needed. Pour the sauce into a
nice jar for storage. This is a fantastic
sauce that will add flavor to eggs,
marinades, Asian dishes, or anything where
you might consider using sriracha sauce..
There you have it folks! My low carbohydrate
garlic chili sauce. Homemade goodness to
bring flavor and a little heat to just
about anything. I hope you enjoyed this
