Tomato Jalapeno Chutney

(for Tacos)

  • Terry made this great sauce for the fish tacos. We spread it on the warm tortilla shells and then add the rest of the taco filling. It was a perfect compliment and outstanding!!!
  • We also use it as a glaze for fish, broiled or grilled. (I guess you could even use it for chicken)

  • 4 pints grape tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 cups red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper

  • Start by chopping onions, garlic, jalapeno, you can use a food processor to chop the veggies.
  • Put veggies in a large dutch oven with canola oil. Saute on medium heat 3 to 4 minutes. Add remaining ingredients except for the cilantro. Bring back to a boil then simmer on medium heat about 30 minutes until thickened and reduced. Cool and add cilantro.
  • Makes enough for at least 20 tacos. Enjoy!
