I just found my new FAVORITE condiment. Belizen Hot Pepper Onion Sauce!
Recently I relived our trip to Belize by cooking up some Belizean recipes. Eating the Belizean food took me back to Belize. I felt like I was visiting this amazing country just by sitting at my table and eating the food of Belize.
I made some Belizean Stewed Chicken, Rice and Beans and Stewed Beans. And the perfect condiment to go with them? Belizean Hot Pepper Onion Sauce. 🙂
What Ingredients Do I Need To Make This Sauce?
This condiment is incredibly delicious. Also it is sooooo very simple to make.
The short list of ingredients includes:
- Scotch bonnet/habanero peppers
- Whole allspice
This couldn't be easier! Start by mincing the onion and cilantro. Using a small food processor makes this a snap! Then, slice the Scotch bonnets lengthwise.
Then simply combine all ingredients and that's it!
You MUST Try This Amazing Condiment!
You MUST try this. Put it on your tacos, eggs, meats, hot dogs, tostadas..put it on everything. 😃
I am just so in love with this Belizean Hot Pepper Onion Sauce! I want to share it with as many people as possible!
Literally 5 minutes prep, and you will have your new favorite condiment ready to pair with your favorite foods! You can allow this to marinate overnight but it's not necessary. It's ready to enjoy right away!
Enjoy! PS. The allspice is just for flavoring...don't consume the allspice. 🙂

I have a question. How long does it stay good before going bad? Am I suppose to put the unused portion in the refrigerator? If you mentioned it and I missed it I'm sorry. Thank you
Hi Brandy! Thanks for your questions and hope you are well! Great questions which I had not addressed....yes, please refrigerate the unused portion. From my own experience I have eaten it after a few months of being in the fridge but I recommend consuming it in about a month or so. The flavors intensify after awhile (still so tasty!) but it's not as fresh after so long. I hope this helps! If you did make it would love your feedback if you have time. Thank you so much and I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year! Grace
I traveled to Belize in college and their hot sauce and also onion/habanero "relish" has always stayed with me. I used the habaneros from my garden and I didn't have the whole allspice so I skipped it. I did add some lime juice. There is a little bit of a hint of a sweetness and I think maybe its bc of the lime juice. Might skip that next time.
Thanks for posting this! be well
