1cupunsalted toasted peanuts
1spicy pepper(I suggest scotch bonnet)
Pulse the peanuts in the food processor until it becomes a smooth paste.
Add oil if the food processor is struggling, or you want a smoother paste (also my preference).
Add half the pepper, and salt. Pulse again until it is well-mixed.
Add more pepper if you want it spicier (don't overdo it, you need to be able to taste the peanut flavor).
Once you have found the taste you like pour into a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid and keep refrigerated. It lasts about a week.
This mambá recipe is based on the ones I had as a child. As I don't know for certain what proportions were used in the ones we bought, I've tried to recreate it here. I like it rather spicy, so feel free to adjust this to your own taste.
