Even though I currently have over 15 bottles of hot sauce in the refrigerator, I am always on the look out for new ones.
Today we made a road trip to a local outlet mall and luckily for me there was a Pepper Palace. I really only wanted to buy a jar of Dave’s Gourmet Ghost Peppers for a friend, but ended up spending well over an hour talking to a fellow chili head and sampling dozens of exciting new hot sauces.
One of my new favorites, although not the spicest is the Chocolate Habenero. It has a smokey flavor first and ends up with a nice heat that lingers with you. Stephanie fell in love with a spicy BBQ sauce called Mountain Q Habanero. It is a well crafted BBQ sauce with a stong hickory flavor infused with habanero heat. It tastes as good as it sounds.
We also found Ghost in the Darkness. It isn’t your typical vinegar/ghost pepper sauce. It utilizes the Indian Naga Jolokia with the Africa Peri-Peri creating a wonderful combination of both heat and flavor. Two continenets, two peppers one amazing sauce.
Now that I have shared some of my sauces with you, what are some of your favorites?
