Basbaas (Somali Green Hot Sauce)
Basbaas is a Somali green hot sauce that we use as a condiment. You can use it with pretty much anything savory. You can make it as spicy as you like by adding more jalapenos or different hot chilies.
4 Medium to large jalapenos (diced)
1 Juice of lemon
3 Peeled garlics
Handful of cilantro
1 Tsp of salt to taste
2 Green onions/scallions (chopped)
1/4 Green bell pepper
In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.
Pour it in a glass jar with a lid.
Keep the basbaas in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
