Humble House Guajillo & Red Jalapeno

October 01, 2018

From San Antonio, Texas, Humble house is one of those brands that delivers fantastic flavours in all their products; Guajillo & Red Jalapeno is no exception! As with the other sauces in their lineup, it’s made with simple, natural ingredients, and is also gluten free! With its bold flavour, light smokiness, smooth taste, and slow-building mild heat, this is among the most accessible sauces we offer here at Chilly Chiles. We also found out this week that this one will be the #2 sauce in the Hot Ones lineup for season 7! As said by Sean Evans in the Hot Ones Season 7 Lineup Reveal Video, this sauce has been dubbed by Noah Chaimberg from Heatonist as “Mexican sriracha.” That is the perfect way to succinctly describe this product.

The peppers used in this one are a blend of aged red jalapenos, which have a modest fruity flavour, and Guajillo chiles, (which are dried Mirasol chiles) with their smoky and sweet tomato-like taste. This combination of mild peppers going through the aging process makes for a more complex-tasting sauce, with complimentary flavours. Fresh garlic adds a good amount of zing, contributing to the bold nature of this sauce. Vinegar, the classic preserving ingredient, adds the sourness we come to expect from most hot sauces. Pickled red bell pepper brings a tad of not only tang due to the pickling of the peppers, but also sweetness. Cane sugar adds to this sweetness and balances out with the tang and mild heat, creating that perfect sriracha-like formula. Kosher salt ensures the right amount of subtle saltiness to complete the flavour profile.

In terms of heat I would give this one a 1 out of 10. Everyone should be able to handle this sauce! It’s no hotter than your conventional sriracha you can find at the supermarket (and honestly, it’s way better). When I taste it, due to my rather high tolerance for spicy food, I only get a subtly warm tingle on my tongue. I use it more as a sauce to add flavour rather than heat, which is what I’m sure seasoned chile heads like myself use it for too. For someone who is only a fan of  Mexican, or sriracha hot sauces, this is a great step up in terms of uniqueness. And since this sauce is around the same heat level, no one should be intimidated by it!

Enjoy this sauce in a multitude of ways! If you’re a fan of any kind of Mexican or Asian dishes, this one is a MUST-TRY! It’s a good dip, marinade, or glazing/drizzling sauce for so many different foods. Use it the same way you would use a sriracha or any Mexican-style hot sauce!  Add some tangy-sweet heat to your tacos, stir fries, sandwiches, skewers, burgers, ramen, eggs, veggies, pork chops, wings, and so much more. It’s one of those sauce you can add pretty much anywhere, and it just blends in to the other flavours of the meal so well. If you’re a fan of sriracha and/or Mexican hot sauces and are looking to switch it up, look no further than this sauce!

Come by one of our store locations and give Humble House Guajillo & Red Jalapeno a try!

As always, Stay on the spicy side of life!

Burns & McCoy Exhorresco Hot Sauce

November 07, 2018

 Now I don’t say this very often about a hot sauce, but Exhorresco by Burns & McCoy is simply phenomenal. Before having tried this sauce a few years back, I had never thought that a sauce could have such a unique flavour profile while having such a scorching burn.

Karma Sauce Funken Hot Hot Sauce

November 01, 2018

 This hot sauce is downright TASTY! This is quite a unique product, as there are very few sauces on the market that use the brown chile varieties. These ones are generally slightly hotter than the red varieties and have a more rich and darker quality to them.

Not hot, but very flavourful

I first discovered this product in your shop when it was located on Sussex Drive in the market area and have enjoyed it ever since. It's not a spicy product, but it has an excellent flavour and is a great accompaniment to all sorts of meats - beef, pork, and chicken - particularly when grilled on a gas or charcoal BBQ. It seems to come and go on the shelves, but I hope to see it stocked more regularly.

The best hot sauce!

We travel to Belize often but when we carry-on we can’t bring back the hot sauce. We use it on everything and love the variety they produce.

Thankful that we can order online and get super fast delivery!

I love this sauce

good taste and easily pourable on any surface. I will definitely buy again.

Definitely the hottest

I can't really speak for the flavour as the heat obliterated any there might have been, but these were hands down the hottest noodles (and hottest thing in general) that I've ever had. If you're looking for a solid spicy food challenge, buy this before it's sold out!

Product exceeded expectations.

Thank you so much for having the BEST Selection anywhere.
