Chili Colorado Sauce Recipe: Traditional Cuisine and/or Raw Vegan

Chili Colorado Sauce RecipeNote:  the original recipe is for raw vegan and raw vegetarian cuisine, but you can use it exactly as you would any other Chili Colorado Sauce.

Chili Colorado Sauce


  • 4 dried chilies, stemmed and seeded
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey or sugar
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder (or 2 tablespoons fresh onion)
  • 1 clove garlic (a section, not the entire thing, LOL)
  • ¼ teaspoon cumino
  • ¼ teaspoon ground oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (1 ½ of regular salt)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or any other oil, if you prefer)


  1. Break the dried chilies into pieces, remove the seeds and pour water over      them.  Set aside for 30 minutes      while soaking.
  2. Place the chilies in a blender along with the other ingredients, except the oil,      and blend until completely smooth.
  3. Add the oil and continue blending until emulsified.


Notes:  I like to take a couple of dates and I remove the seeds and soak them along with the chiles.  AND I also like to use 2 or three sundried tomatoes as well.  These add both a depth of flavor and a bit of sweetness to offset the heat from the chilis. 


I have chilies and can buy them anytime I want if you are unable to get them.
