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!

Alexis

Awesome Sauce and Amazing Service!

Everything was perfect! Ordering, delivery and the final product!

Awesome saices

My husband loves the mustard and bbq sauce. You are the only place we could find it!

Roasted pineapple habanero dip

This dip/jelly is the best I’ve ever eaten. I highly recommend this to everyone if you like a little heat! Fabulous on smoked cheddar and crackers and burgers too ! The list goes on

Best sauce in the game

the best sauce, the perfect balance of flavours and kick, a slight tex-mex flavour but that also doesnt have too big of a flavour profile to not go on asian dishes etc. This sauce goes amazing on everything!! (EVEN ICE CREAM!) Seriously, I've tried every popular hot sauce on the market, from tabasco to pain 100 passing by sriracha and Blair's Mega Death, AND THIS IS THE WINNER! Will never get tired of this sauce, Secret Aardvark has made a loyal customer, and so has Chilly Chiles! (If youre reading this review and live in canada buy from chilly chiles!! they have amazing shipping, the best prices i have found and much more.)

Asian Sauceee

Great sauce, amazing flavour and just the right amount of kick, it would be amazing in ramen, on grilled pork and most thai/viet/chinese dishes, i think its a little tiny bit too sweet though, still very enjoyable though.
