Place all of the ingredients into a blender or jar with a tight-fitting lid. Process or shake until all of the ingredients are well combined. Note: If you use a blender the sauce may lighten in color and get very bubbly from the added air. The sauce will settle into a dark color and the bubbles will dissolve after a few minutes.
Although you can use this immediately, I find the flavors meld best and spices dissolve a bit a few hours after it’s made.
