Tamarillo and Ají Sauce (Ají de Tomate de Arbol)

Tamarillo and Aji Sauce

I decided to give a twist to this spicy sauce and use habanero peppers, which are very spicy, but have a sweet, fruity quality to them.  Use this sauce to flavor fish tacos - even as a spicy dressing for a salad.  If the spicy proves to be too much to handle, you can tame this down by squeezing on some extra lime juice.


Ingredients
1 1/2
cups
tamarillo pulp
1/4
cup
water
2
habaneros (roughly chopped)
1
teaspoon
salt
2
teaspoons
scallions roughly chopped (only the white portion)
1
tablespoon
cilantro (roughly chopped)
1
teaspoon
vegetable oil
*
juice of 1 lime (more if desired)
Directions
In a blender or food processor, combine the tamarillo pulp with the water.
Add the habanero peppers and puree. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse 1-2 more times until combined.
Taste for seasoning and heat. Should you want to tame the heat, squeeze some more lime juice and add a pinch of salt.
