How many chilli peppers should I use?

Adjust the number of chillies to use in your chilli sauce, to suit your taste.

We used medium spiced Morrocan chilli peppers from Morrisons as that was all they had there!

There are so many different types of chilli peppers, it’s hard to tell you how many to use because everyone has a different sensitivity to heat, but below is a rough guide!
