Fat Cat Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost Hot Sauce

November 06, 2019

   Fat Cat Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost Hot Sauce is exactly that: surprisingly mild! At the same time, it has a ton of savoury flavour which, at least in my experience with the product, is wildly addictive. I had finished my bottle in a matter of days. That’s how much I enjoyed it! If you like the flavours of the southwest and don’t mind just a slight kick of heat, then I highly recommend this one to you! If you want to learn more about Fat Cat Foods and some of the other products of theirs which we offer here at Chilly Chiles, be sure to check out my reviews of Strawberry Serrano Hot Sauce and Chairman Meow’s Revenge! Both delicious, yet very different products!

   It’s a robust sauce with a smoky, tangy, and savoury flavour profile. What sticks out the most to me are the smoky Guajillo peppers and the cumin. It really is a marriage made in heaven! Water gives the sauce a more liquid consistency and balances out the acidity and salinity while the vinegar acts as the classic preservative, adding a moderate tang. Guajillo peppers are the dried form of the Mirasol chile and they are among the most popular chile varieties in Mexican cuisine. They have a rich, fruity, and smoky flavour. They really are delicious! Sea salt does its job of seasoning the sauce while the cumin also makes a big impact with its spicy, earthy, and slightly nutty taste. Ghost peppers are very much in the background in terms of the heat and flavour they contribute. That’s essentially why this sauce has this name, there’s just a tiny hint of Ghost peppers! I did detect a little boost of heat in this sauce from these superhot chiles, but it was rather faint. The oregano is also noticeable upon tasting, though not quite as much as the cumin. In combination though they work amazingly together, given oregano’s earthy and pungent flavour.

   In terms of heat, I would give this one a 2 out of 10. Even with the added Ghost pepper, this sauce is rather mild, hence the name. It is indeed surprisingly mild given that whenever we see the word “Ghost” on a hot sauce bottle, we tend to expect a scorcher! I would say anyone would be able to enjoy this product. If you’re a fan of Mexican-style hot sauces and love a good smoky flavour, then this one is a MUST-TRY!

   Add some of this sauce to your favourite Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes like chili, tacos, fajitas, burritos, nachos, chimichangas, enchiladas, huevos rancheros, tamales, and more! It’s also delicious on any kind of breakfast too. I’ve enjoyed it with scrambled or fried eggs, omelets, avocado toast, baked beans, and breakfast sandwiches. It’s a great table sauce and given the milder heat and savoury flavours it offers, you can be adventurous and try it on pretty much anything you usually enjoy with hot sauce!

   No need to be afraid of this one! Come by one of our store locations and give Fat Cat Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost Hot Sauce a try!

As always, Keep it picante!

Hellfire Zombie Snot Hot Sauce

January 23, 2020

I know Zombie Snot may not be the most appetizing name for a sauce, but believe me, not only is it one of the freshest tasting sauces on the market today, but it’s actually an elevated, hotter take on the classic salsa verde which many of us love, made with green superhot chiles!

Not Really a Hot Sauce

I purchased this because it was on Hot Ones and because it gets really good reviews anywhere you look. I placed an order just to get this, but bought 4 other hot sauces since I was placing an order. I have to say, I love the other 4, Dirty Dick's, Bravado Crimson and Black Garlic, and Queen Majesty Scotch Bonnet and Ginger, but I don't really care for this. It's not so much a hot sauce, as it is a sour sauce. When you taste it sour/tart is the predominant flavor, you get the smokey flavor in the background and flavor of the moritas with a little warmth, but no heat. I wouldn't say it's bad, but it's not what I expected. And to be honest, I really don't know what to use it on, I tried it chicken sandwich and the whole thing had this tart flavor that didn't appeal to me. Great service from the site and price is great considering the size of the bottle, but this one is a flop for me.


No spice. Tastes like HP sauce mixed with tomatoe sauce.

Hot hot hot
