Silver Bill's Garbanero Tongue-Twister Hot Sauce

Continuing our foody Sunday... NPR concluded their garlic recipe contest today. The winner was a hot sauce submitted by William Maxwell of Vandalia, Missouri (aka Silver Bill). His sauce combines the garlic with Habanero (Scotch Bonnet in the Caribbean) chili peppers. Normally, habaneros are bordering on too hot even for my cast iron mouth and stomach. Apparently, there is a synergistic effect that calms these bad boys in this mix. The audio story can be heard here.


  • 1 quart peeled garlic cloves
  • 6 to 12 bright red habanero peppers
  • 2 6-ounce bottles Goya Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper


Snip the cluster end off each garlic clove. Remove seeds from the habanero peppers. Use at least 6 habaneros or more, depending upon their size and the maker's taste and/or threshold of pain.

Combine all ingredients and liquefy in a blender. For a thinner sauce, add more Goya Hot Sauce.

I have not tried this recipie yet, but I'm going to get some habaneros the next time I go to town.

Congratulations to Silver Bill.

There are other garlic recipes at NPR.

I made this sauce straight from the recipe and it's awful! realize that you are using 1 quart of fresh garlic! It's SO garlicy that even the smallest amount is almost toxic.
