Guatemalan Hot Sauce Recipe

Guatemalan Hot Sauce Recipe Green Hot Sauce Recipe

Technically this raw vegan recipe is a sauce, but it could also be a raw green soup. I love it so much that I usually eat it all up with a spoon… by itself… is that gross?

Since I know you are going to be just as crazy about it as I am, you might as well call it a green soup or smoothie, maybe even a dressing, because you can use it all of those ways.

This sauce has deep roots for me.

My mom’s husband Rudi is from Guatemala and this sauce is one of those memories he carried with him to the United States. After my mother and Rudi moved in together this Green Hot Sauce was always sitting in the refrigerator lovingly thought of as the ever-waiting condiment.

Late at night when I came home from going out with friends I would often drink it straight up. This Green Hot Sauce starts out as a bright burst in your mouth followed by a zingy punch. It is so green and raw that you can’t help but feel more alive when you eat it.

Not to mention, the Chili Pequin, also known as bird peppers, adds incredible spice and heat that stimulates digestion and circulation alike.

I think I used to magnetize to this sauce because of how it uplifted my sluggish digestion. I am a Kapha body type according to Ayurveda, which means I’m methodical and slow (no surprise there for those who know me).

We Kapha do well with extra stimulation to get us moving. This sauce does exactly that for me and it will for you as well.
