Ingredients
1 jalapeno pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup agave nectar or maple syrup
2 tbsp water

Instructions
Begin by dicing both peppers into small pieces, carefully removing all seeds.  

Place peppers into a small pot over medium-low heat and add agave nectar, chia seeds, and water.  Stir to combine.  

Let simmer for 8-10 minutes until the peppers begin to soften. 

Add arrowroot powder and stir to combine.  Let simmer for another 3-4 minutes until the mixture begins to thicken.  

Remove from heat and let cool.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.  This is best served with my easy overnight almond cheese.
