keeps easily for a few weeks in the fridge.
Chillies can vary enormously in their intensity which makes cooking
with them a big moving target. I tend to use less chillies and keep the

makes about 1 cup
1 jar roasted red peppers (250g / 9oz), drained
5 small red chillies,
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons caraway seeds
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Place peppers, chilli, paprika, caraway seeds and lemon juice in a food processor. Whizz until you have asmooth-ish paste.
Stir through 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Taste and season.
