Mojo Picante or Red Mojo

    A flavoursome sauce served all over the Canaries. Especially used when eating Papas Arrugadas ( Canarian Potatoes)

    East Lothian, Scotland, UK
    1 person made this


    • 2 red peppers roughly chopped
    • 6 garlic cloves crushed
    • 1 tsp cumin powder
    • 1 tsp paprika
    • 3-4 tbsp red wine vinegar
    • Olive oil
    • Sea salt to taste


    1. Place the red pepper and garlic in a blender with a good glug of olive oil. Blend until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and blend together. If you want it more ‘Picante’ (spicy) you could add a little chilli powder to taste.


    If you want the sauce to be slightly thicker you could add some pieces of bread when blending or if you was it thinner add a little water. Keep in a jar in the fridge. Use it on everything 😀
