Domino’s Mango Habanero Sauce

Copycat recipes the best way to capture the dishes I love, so I can have them even if they discontinue them down the road. This happened when Dominos revamped their whole menu years back. 

With the Dominos Makeover, we no longer have those buttery, cinnamon treats BUT I did discover a sweet, hot sauce I never even knew I needed in my life. If you haven’t had their Mango Habanero Sauce, stop what you are doing and order it. Or make this recipe because it has the exact delicious, addicting spicy flavor.

They toss their wings in this yummy sauce as well as smother their Jalapeño Pineapple Specialty Chicken in it, and don’t worry that mouthwatering copy is coming soon. They even make a Chicken Habanero Sandwich, which I have below as a way to use this sauce.

The flavor profile for this sauce goes so well with meats like chicken or pork, but you can also use it as a dipping sauce for your favorite sides. It’s so addicting, you might find yourself putting it on just about everything from french fries to baked cauliflower to bacon cheese bread. Seriously.

Is Mango Habanero Sauce Spicy?

The Dominos version isn’t as a spicy as most Mango Habanero Sauces I’ve had in the past but it does still have a bit of a slow burn. 

Why the Orange Mango Concentrate? Why the Jalapeno?

Well, when I work on copycats I work off of the ingredients listing from the restaurants if I can. Mango and Habanero are both at the end of the ingredient list. Domino’s lists that it’s sauce is made of less than 2% of these two ingredients and contains much higher quantities of jalapeno and orange juice. So an orange mango concentrate is the perfect option as well as jalapenos.

MORE DELICIOUS DIPPING SAUCES

HOW TO USE DOMINOS MANGO HABANERO SAUCE

  • Chicken: The way we use this sauce the most is for chicken, whether substituting it for our Boneless Wings and Hot Wings, or as a dipping sauce for our Crispy Chicken Tenders.
  • Cauliflower Bites: Make an amazing vegetarian appetizer by tossing some Crispy Roasted Cauliflower in Mango Habanero Sauce.
  • Meatballs: Use this Spicy Mango Sauce for your Cocktail Meatballs instead of the chili sauce and grape jelly. Add a cup of your favorite barbecue sauce to make it even more delicious.
  • Spicy Chicken Sandwich: Use this habanero sauce as the spread for a chicken sandwich like on the Dominos menu. Put a generous amount on ciabatta and add grilled chicken, provolone, canned pineapple chunks, and pickled jalapeños. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 10-15, until golden brown and toasty.

What other peppers can I use?

If you want something a bit spicier than a jalapeno here are some peppers that you can substitute:

  • Habaneros: These will make the sauce spicier, but you’ll be on point with the name.
  • Scotch Bonnets: Not only do these peppers look almost identical to habanero chilis, they have almost identical heat level and flavor. 
  • Serrano Chiles: Like jalapeños, these are going to be easier to find and are very spicy. They are are going to taste much different but they work in pinch though if heat is what you are looking for.

  1. Yikes! My husband and I loved the sandwich from Domino’s but we’ve since found out that he’s gluten intolerant so he asked if I could recreate the sauce and I found your recipe. The problem is I can’t find the frozen concentrate orange peach mango juice anywhere. In fact no frozen dole juice at all.

    1. Oh no! I did see it in my local Target the other day but it doesn’t show as being offered online.

  2. I can tell you right off the bat this is totally wrong. I read your explanation of using jalapenos instead of habanero. first off by changing the habanero will significantly change the entire flavor. I love habanero and i love its flavor there is a lot more to it then just heat. your trying to use jalapenos as its heat factor and that will not work.

    1. You’re absolutely correct though when Domino’s lists the ingredients, the amount of habanero is so low that I was trying to duplicate the flavor without even having to add it. Have you tried making the sauce?

  3. I cannot find Dole Orange Peach Mango Concentrate Or any other brand that makes this, what can i use as a substitute. Thanks in advance. I love this sauce. Domino’s doesn’t sell by case.

    1. I haven’t tested it using that substitute. If you decide to try, I’d love to know how you made it work. Thanks!

  4. I have constant joint inflammation issues from allergies. When exposed to dried leaves or wood smoke they become acute.

    The Dominos habenero chicken sandwich sauce helps already but a similar tasting ghost pepper sauce works fantastically well at decreasing the pain.

    Is there a possibility of upping the heat of this recipe with ghost peppers without destroying the taste? What I get now has to be shipped and costs a fortune.

  5. I’m confused. The information above talks about orange mango concentrate, as well as jalapenos but the recipe itself doesn’t contain either. Are the 2 versions.

    1. No, sorry about that. There was an issue with the post and it came through incorrectly. I’ve edited to read correctly now. Thank you for your patience.

  6. Why does your picture show different ingredients then your actual recipe?
    You write to use peach orange mango concentrate but that is not listed in ingredient list. Can I use the orange peach mango juice that comes in a carton and if so how much ? Or is it better just to use a fresh mango? Thank you

    1. So sorry, there was a glitch and it wasn’t posted correctly. I’ve fixed it. Thanks for letting me know.

  7. I want to make this but I’m confused. Your comments and photos mention jalapeños and orange-peach-mango concentrate but these are not included in the actual recipe.
    What’s up?

    1. Sorry to confuse you. There was a glitch that didn’t allow the post to read correctly and it was all messed up, haha! Thanks for letting me know.

  8. This is so great! I’m so happy to have found a spicy sauce that does NOT contain cayenne pepper! It’s such a pervasive spice and I’m allergic to it! I LOVE this wonderful Habanero sauce!
