Pain is Good Harissa Hot Sauce

July 14, 2018

a close up of food   Pain is Good Harissa Hot Sauce by Original Juan Specialty Foods Inc. is unlike any other harissa sauce on the market today. Harissa has its origins in Tunisia and traditionally includes a sundried or fresh pepper paste, garlic, herbs, spices, and vegetable or olive oil. This is a twist on the original recipe because it’s a hot sauce rather than a paste. This sauce builds on the classic ingredients with a very mild, enjoyable heat and fresh, bold, savouriness.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Original Juan has quite a diverse lineup of products including salsas, barbecue sauces, bloody mary mixes, hot sauces, and wing sauces. Their brands include Pain Is Good, Da’ Bomb, and Longhorn, among others. If you want to learn more about Original Juan and their products that we offer here at Chilly Chiles, check out my review of Pain is Good Fire Roasted Green Srirach-AH Hot Sauce! If you’re a fan of sriracha, it’s a must-read!

The red jalapeno peppers and birds eye chile powder provide the mild heat in this sauce while the distilled vinegar and lemon juice concentrate add a noticeable tang. The tomato paste adds a sweetness and acidic quality which complements the prominent zing of fresh garlic. The onion powder and garlic powder reinforce a bold taste. The cilantro and mint add an herby quality to this sauce while the spices, though a mystery, do complete this sauce by adding a layer of exotic flavours. Finally, the extra virgin olive oil brings everything together with its subtle fruity and pungent notes.

In terms of heat I would give this sauce a 1 out of 10. It’s at such a low heat level that I would have no trouble recommending it to pretty much everyone! If you’re intrigued by the ingredient/flavour combinations in this sauce then you should definitely give it a try! There is much to appreciate in it because of its very savoury quality brought forth with the use of fresh ingredients.

You can enjoy this sauce on all kinds of different food. I’ve added when sautéing shrimp, onions, scallops, mushrooms, peppers, and other veggies. It works great as a marinade for chicken, beef, and pork! Drizzle Harissa Hot Sauce over couscous, pizza, eggs, nachos, and even in sandwiches. Mix it in with mayo, yoghurt, or hummus for an awesome fresh-tasting zesty dip! The flavour profile of this sauce makes it so that it blends very well with just about anything that can use an herby, spicy tang!

As always, Keep it spicy!

CaJohns Hydra Hot Sauce

February 11, 2020

CaJohns Hydra Hot Sauce is definitely a force to be reckoned with! Made with 7-Pot Primo chilies, it’s got a fresh heat that you’d expect to get from this brand. Hydra is in fact a very pepper-forward sauce, meaning that much of the flavour comes from the main pepper itself.
