Hellfire Gourmet Red Hot Sauce

December 29, 2017 1 Comment

  Hellfire Gourmet Red Hot Sauce Hellfire Gourmet Red Hot Sauce is one of the strongest-flavoured sauces I’ve had in recent years. It’s a complex sauce with many ingredients that fit so well together. Given the quality ingredients and the flavours that they bring out, this sauce is most definitely gourmet! This product is a total explosion of flavour that I highly recommend to anyone who wants to try a unique hot sauce that you can add to pretty much anything. The rich and savoury flavours will amaze almost anyone who tries it!

   The peppers used in this sauce are red jalapeños, which add a nice fragrance, cayenne peppers, which add a warmer heat, and Anaheim peppers, which are bright and sharp in flavour. The combination of apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, Burgundy Cooking Wine, lemon and lime juice makes for a more complex pungency and tang. The citrusy flavour present is combined with the robustness of the cooking wine, which makes for quite a unique taste! The strong heated taste of the garlic mixed with the intense sweet-tart flavour of the sundried tomatoes adds a good amount of strength to the overall flavour profile of the sauce. The spices of chili powder, cumin, and curry powder add a strong, spiced flavour to the sauce, complimenting the peppers in the sauce. These spices help to add an extra layer of flavour, which helps to make it so suitable with various types of cuisine. The tomatillos add a tart, herbal flavour which works well with the refreshing earthiness of the cilantro. There is also a very slight sweetness to this sauce from the brown sugar. It’s non-invasive to the other flavours in the sauce. This is not a sweet sauce however; the brown sugar simply adds a nice sweet finishing touch!

   Heat-wise, this is a medium-heat level sauce. I give it a 4 out of 10. The average person will find this sauce has a noticeable kick. For an experienced chili head, this sauce should be quite mild! Given this fact, you can use it quite generously on all your favourite meals without having to worry about a scorching burn! This sauce pairs amazingly with Mexican and Southwestern dishes. Enjoy it on tacos, burritos, enchiladas, burgers, nachos, rice, grilled cheese, and in soups, chilis, and stuffed peppers too. I’ve also mixed this sauce in with sour cream, mayo, hummus, and even added it into salsa for an extra jolt of flavour and heat!

   I highly recommend you check out the whole Hellfire lineup of sauces. They offer such a delicious variety of gourmet sauces and are all worth looking into. Come by one of our store locations and give Hellfire Gourmet Red Hot Sauce a try!

As always, keep it spicy!

Fat Cat Surprisingly Mild Guajillo Ghost Hot Sauce

November 06, 2019

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...

Great product and great delivery service.

Disappointed

Liked the flavour but tingles at first and the just faded away not a lot of heat

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.

Terrible

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

Hot hot hot

J'ai commandé 5 bouteilles et 2 orteils de satan comme cadeaux de Noël ! Les sauces sont super bonne bonne et vraiment forte !
Les paquets sont super bien emballés.
Si vous acheter durant l hiver assurer vous de communiquer avec la compagnie pour qu' il envoie quand même votre paquet puisque les livraisons sont retenues en hiver a cause du froid.
