This simple yogurt-based Somali hot sauce packs a spicy, herbal punch. It's delicious on just about anything, from fried eggs to grilled chicken. If you're a fan of chili heat, use the seeds of some—or all—of the serranos.

Cup

Tip

Don’t use fat-free or low-fat Greek yogurt. The flavor is best with the richness of whole-milk yogurt.

I could not print the entire recipe. It allowed me to print the ingredients, but not the directions. Please advise.

Flavor is great- but I had to add a little water to get my blender to blend. Went a little lighter on the chilies for the palates I was feeding but it was still flavorful yet so simple. I can see it on salmon, other roasted vegetables and more! Thanks MSK!
