In another lifetime I owned an herbal gift shop and we used to sell this fancy brand of mustard that came in all kinds of fancy flavors. I tried to recreate one of the spicy ones today.

I had made some keto pretzel sticks yesterday and thought this keto hot pepper mustard would be a great dip or condiment for them. It came out so good I had a hard time stopping!

With the abundance of peppers from our garden and a few other seasonings I came up with an easy and delicious keto condiment spread that you can use as a dip, spread, or even use in my low carb recipes. To keep it low carb I used sweetener and eliminated any flour.

Recipe ingredients I used.

The base of this spicy hot mustard is regular yellow prepared mustard and then I added sautéed hot peppers, onions, garlic as well as mayonnaise, onion powder, garlic powder, sweetener and olive oil.

The type of hot peppers I used were both the red Serranos and green jalapenos pictured below for flecks of color as well as heat.. You can use any hot pepper you like the taste of. I liked the combination of colors and the amount of heat from these two particular varieties and that is what we have in our garden.

Other types you could use are hot banana peppers, poblanos, habaneros, etc. If you don’t want too much heat you can use sweet bell peppers and then add a little hot pepper flakes, ground cayenne or even hot sauce for additional heat.

I also used a packet of Splenda Sweetener for the added sweetness. You can use any kind of sweetener you want. If you don’t care about carbs you can try white granulated sugar, honey, brown sugar, maple syrup, etc. You are not using much but the added sweetness goes well with the other flavors.

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

This easy hot pepper mustard recipe is a tasty low carb condiment that you can use as a dip or spread or use it in your cooking for added flavor and spice. The flavorful ingredients turn ordinary yellow mustard into extraordinary.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 hot peppers, (I used 1 jalapeno and 1 Serrano)
  • ¼ cup yellow onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ cup yellow mustard
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon Splenda Sweetener
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. When cleaning the peppers keep in mind that the heat is in the seeds and ribs. I cleaned out the seeds but kept the ribs. If you want more heat you can keep the seeds.
  2. Add the cleaned peppers, onion and garlic to a food processor and pulse until finely chopped and minced.
  3. Get out a small skillet and heat to medium high heat. Add the oil, peppers, onion and garlic mixture and turn the heat down to medium heat. Saute for about 5 minutes until the mixture has cooked and browned a bit. You want the onions to caramelize if you can. Take off the heat and let cool.
  4. In the meantime add the yellow mustard to a medium mixing bowl along with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Once the pepper mixture has cooled a bit, add it as well and mix to combine.
  5. Store in a jar or airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a few weeks.
