Satan’s Ghost Hot Sauce

December 04, 2018

   Satan’s Ghost Hot Sauce has been very popular here at Chilly Chiles for years now. It comes as no surprise to me given that its deep, bold, smoky, and tangy flavour has had me hooked since day one! It’s among my favourite ghost pepper sauces on the market today because of the way the ingredients pair so well with the blistering heat of the ghost pepper and smokiness of the fire-roasted habaneros. I find that smoky hot sauces with strong flavours are not always easy to come by, especially ones that pack a pretty strong punch. I would recommend this one to anyone who loves ghost pepper-based hot sauces and savoury, smoky notes.

   Fire-roasted habanero peppers add a moderate smoky heat which is at the center of this sauce’s flavour profile. Red wine vinegar adds a distinctive tang that sets this sauce apart from other smoky hot sauces of this kind. It’s one of the more underused types of vinegars which I find adds the most full-bodied sourness. Water makes for a more liquid consistency and that the acidity level of the sauce is not too overwhelming, and the salt ensures that it’s seasoned to perfection. Having enough seasoning and saltiness in a sauce is a crucial element to consider! The ghost peppers, one of the hottest peppers in the world, add a slow-building, sweet-earthy burn. The heat creeps up on you… just like a ghost! Xanthan gum, a thickening agent found in many hot sauces, allows it to reach the desired consistency. I must say Satan’s Ghost also has a very smooth and rich texture. I love all kinds of textures when it comes to hot sauce, and this one is just right!

   In terms of heat, I would give it a 7 out of 10. It’s got the perfect level of heat one would expect from a ghost pepper-based hot sauce, with an incredibly strong and well-balanced flavour. I would recommend it to anyone who loves ghost pepper sauces, or superhot sauces in general. As its intimidating name and label would suggest, it’s not one for beginners. Those who can handle habanero-level heat should absolutely give this one a try if they want to kick things up a decent notch. It’s the only sauce of its kind and also makes a great gift for many hot sauce-lovers out there!

   As much as this product has a strong flavour and burn, it’s actually more versatile than you may think! Add modest amounts Satan’s Ghost to your BBQ marinades for grilled chicken, ribs, pork tenderloin, lamb, braised beef dishes, and more. A couple of drops on your tacos, grilled eggplant, oven-roasted potatoes, seafood dishes, in your sandwiches, quinoa bowls, and burritos goes a long way! It’s perfect when mixed with mayo, sour cream, or cream cheese! These zesty dips are perfect for your veggies, fries, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, and crackers! Make sure to use it in small amounts, especially when serving non-chile heads!

   Don’t be too afraid… come by one of our store locations and have a taste of Satan’s Ghost!

As always, Keep it spicy!

Extra wing sauce

Just enough heat, really good Buffalo taste, one of my favorite wingsauce. Give it a try!

Great seasoning

I use this seasoning quite a bit , great stuff.

Not what I expected, but really good!

If I had wrote this review the day I bought this sauce, I probably would have given it a 4-star. But in the last two weeks since I bought this sauce, I’ve learned to really love it. Definitely not what I expected originally. But super happy I got it.

Hotter than expected, good for almost anything you’d expect to use hot-sauce on.

Great sauce! Nice flavour

Bought this sauce with a few others. This sauce is not too hot, the flavours really stand out. The pineapple blends great with the peppers and lime juice. Great taste, not just some heat..

Sauce of summer!

This sauce is amazing! It tastes incredible, smells delicious, and so far has gone great on everything. This sauce screams hot summer day. 10/10 will buy again
