Green Chili BBQ Relish -
Hot and Spicy!

If spicy is you’re thing then my first suggestion is green chili bbq relish. It’ll pep up any barbecue food and is really good on hamburgers.

Green chili bbq relish, perfect for burgers

If you’re smoking then clearly the smoky flavour is important and a sauce or mop is probably the order of the day so save this relish for when it’s a grilling session.

Just grill the meat to your satisfaction spoon on a little relish and that’s all there is too it.

Yield:- 1 cup or 240 ml

Preparation Time:- 15 minutes
Cooking Time:- n/a

Total Time:- 15 minutes


Fine fresh ingredients so not an allergen in sight. 


  • 1 garlic clove crushed in ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 small red onion very finely chopped
  • 6 green or red tomatoes, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
  • 6 green chilis seeded and finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

Before we get into the method, check out this great TIP for how to seed a chili.


In a medium sized bowl combine the tomatoes, chillis, garlic and onion and give it a good mix. Now take a small bowl and mix the oil, vinegar and salt and pepper. Quite simply pour the oil mix over the tomato mix and you’re there.

TIP - I like to refrigerate for 30 minutes before using because not only do I like the cool fresh taste, it also gives the ingredients time to “inter-mingle”.

Having said that do take care not to leave it too long in the refrigerator otherwise the oil will start to get too viscous and go cloudy. If this does happen, just make sure that you pull the relish out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before you want to use it and as it warms up it will return to its original consistency.

So get those burgers on the grill and what are you waiting for?
