Trade joes has a habanero sauce I keep thinking about trying . Problem is a loval mexican restaurant has some really tasty homemade habanero hot sauce to die for. But since it has no preservatives it’s good for only about three weeks in the fridge.

 

 At a buck I thought what the hell. I’m going to see if adding them to a benign hot sauce gets me where I’m wanting to be. I’ve considered bottling and selling my local restaurants sauce since I’d met a guy locally who makes up his batches and bottles them at a place right up the street . 

Just not sure it’s a business I want to get into

Yeh? Seriously?

I really liked Taco Hell’s hotsauce, but haven’t been to one in æons. Think the one I liked was called “fire” or something. Hottest of the bunch, I think. Nice heat + nice flavor.

“Fire” is no longer the hottest. They’ve added “Diablo” now. When I get a burrito from there, I usually add one “Fire” and two “Diablo” for flavor. Still not hot, though. Facepalm

Yeah, they don’t wanna get sued if someone burns his face off or something.

Like “hot” coffee…

We go through Fire sauce pretty fast. Love it on chicken tacos. Ortega makes a “hot” taco sauce that is flavorful, but has very little heat.

The Diablo sauce has an odd, chemical taste to us, so we dont usually buy that one.

The Diablo is a fair bit warmer than the Fire, but I agree not the best taste. I eat more spicy things than anybody that I know personally, and at most i’d give it a 2/10 on a heat scale, probably more like a 1 actually. That’s pushing it. It’s nothing that’s going to burn your mouth.

The two sauces that I really have been meaning to get are Thor’s Hammer and Exhorresco. These are probably two of the hottest sauces out there that are not using extract. I use my extract sauces every day, but they’re always mixed in with something because it’s just pure heat and no flavor.

Not a sauce, but if you like spicy, Paqui’s Ghost Pepper chips are actually pretty hot. I’ve never had their one chip challenge with the Carolina Reaper. But this is a legitimately spicy chip. I’ve got them a couple times from the local gas station, usually around $2 for a smallish bag. Hotter than Diablo sauce and I’d say a solid 2/10 heat wise.

I’ve also gotten the puree pepper squeeze tubes at Aldi’s a few times. I don’t remember getting a ghost pepper one. But I’ve certainly gotten the jalapeño, habanero, and carolina reaper. The jalapeño has the best flavor. I use it the most but very little heat. Still way less flavor than fresh pods. The habanero is ok, just not much flavor to me. Heat wise it’s maybe a 1.5/10. The Carolina Reaper paste was actually the first time I tasted the reapers. I wasn’t really impressed with the taste. It’s kinda bitter and was way way less hot than I was expecting. I’d say 3/10 heat wise is generous.

Those’re the ones in the black bag? Think I had those once upon a time… really good! Hard to find here, though.

That would be them. They’re not overpowering hot, but hot enough to have several and not eat the whole bag in one sitting. It’s not a large bag.

I had a friend bring me a bottle one time and I had to throw it out. 1 teaspoon ruined a pot of chili I made. I remember it was in the top 10 hottest and it had a warning tag on it. You could literally dip a toothpick in it and lay it on your tongue and it would make your eye’s water in 20 seconds. I will try and find it again even though I do not suggest it to anyone. Sometimes “HOT” sauce is taken too far. My stomach cant handle spices much anymore.

Umm, no, I et the whole bag. Crazy

My gf got me a bottle of Ass-Burner Surprise or something similarly named. Yeah, looked a rather harmless green, put a small dot on my index finger (sesame-seed sized, if that) and touched it to my tongue. Was as if someone took a hole-puncher and put a few holes through my tongue.

Shouldda never put my tongue back into my mouth, because that was when the contagion spread. Felt as if I just gulped a nice big bowl of molten lava.

Ohhh, the pain! The pain!

I’m not to much on super hot sauces, but I was visiting a buddy down in New Iberia, LA this past weekend & tried these. I must say they were unusually good.

Bunsters

  • The ‘Hot Sauce’ was great.
  • The ‘STB’ was good to, but it was the ‘hot’ limit for me.
  • I tried a tiny bit of ‘STB Black Label’. Shocked …. it was too hot for me. Facepalm

I “think” ‘maybe if you buy off Amazon you have the choice to bundle it with your choice of adult diaper in either white or blue.

Who knows, there might even be a Vipon coupon…. I’ll have to look! Big Smile . Wink

Might be a good idea to get some of this too if you go with the Bunsters STB Black Label. You’ll probably need it…… Wink

I love the way it’s Hypoallergenic——after eating STB does it really matter—-might need ice cream instead

Must try some, just based on the review. LOL

The issue is the sequel. The encore. The second coming. Now, admittedly, I had a lot of this salsa in a short amount of time, but basically you can go to the legendary sugar free gummy bear reviews on this site and add in horrendous burning pain like passing a napalm coated cactus, and that would summarize my afternoon after eating this salsa.

Even a lame non-cook like me can avoid industrialized, chemical laden concoctions. Commercial Hot sauces around NE Brazil are normally watery cayenne compositions, or expensive imported Tabasco variations. They heat up the back of the mouth, throat and rest of the digestive tract.
Anybody who is into good flavor buys ‘pimenta do cheiro’ (smell/taste peppers). Flavorful and seemingly too hot at first, the front of your mouth, tongue, and nose get the hit, instead of your guts.
I never feel discomfort down below.
You can buy flashlights and hot sauce at Wally World if that’s your taste, but a flashaholic forum has talent for experimenting.
Vinegar and salt give peppers long life, customizing is helped by garlic, sugar, spices and seasonings. Vinegar alone (apple or rice) is all you really need, cooked or not, you can mod to your taste with tomato puree, sauce, or extract if you prefer.
Some peppers are bland (bikini, bird peppers, dedo da moça), you can add scorchers or tame with sugar, vinegar, even dairy.
Every sauce can be a new experiment, like modding flashlights.
With the variety of fresh peppers now available at supermarkets in the USA…..just use gloves, clean your skin with oil afterwards, and keep your fingers away from mucous membranes.

Tjohn, if you have access to a juicer, your experience with fresh fruits and vegetables, even peppers, can be much improved. I made a hot sauce before with fresh made pepper juice, and the taste is unlike anything you can find. I had bought the juicer just for that, and it was well worth it. But my juicer isn’t working now. I need to get it fixed. Crying

Thanks DavidEF…
Started using a blender a couple of weeks ago to add tomato puree, but hadn’t thought about fruit. It’s Mango season now, the trees are loaded around here, the fruit so abundant it is going to waste. Giant pineapples are 50cents, picked one up this morning, it’s destiny is certain…..gonna get added to a batch of sizzle sauce already in the fridge. Chutney is great!
