This delicious spicy roasted red pepper sauce is super simple to make. Be sure to adjust the spice level to your preference.

Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes


  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper


    Preheat the oven broiler.

    Roasted red pepper: Place the red bell pepper on a broiler-safe pan under the oven broiler. Broil the red pepper until it is about half charred, rotating it every few minutes, for about 5 to 10 minutes total. Once charred, remove the red bell pepper from the oven and place the red bell pepper into a heat-safe closed container, like a lidded bowl. Let the roasted red bell pepper cool until it is comfortable to handle the pepper.

    Peel the pepper: Once cool enough to handle, remove the stem, seeds, and any skin that peels away easily.

    Sauce it: Blend together the roasted red bell pepper flesh, 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar, and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  1. This is a delicious recipe! The sauce is good on sandwiches, a dip for potatoes, and in a lot of other foods. Thank you!

    1. This should be good in the fridge for three to four days. It does well in the freezer, so you can do that if you need to store it longer.
