Let the good times drip

It's been awhile since I blogged about sampling some hot sauce.

As most of you know, I love hot things.
There is no such thing as sauce that is "too hot", there is no food that is "too spicy".
I cast glares of withering contempt at products that merely claim to be hot. All too often it results in disappointment as I realize that yet another manufacturer's idea of "hot" is actually another way of saying "weak, wimpy, and wuss." The general public is apparently a bunch of pansies.

So every now and then I try things that are supposed to be hot, and I blog about whether they actually WERE.

Monday I tried "Wild Fire" Habanero sauce. It's in the "eXtreme Heat" category of Brazos Legends. I was expecting it to be kind of blah, since a lot of so-called "habanero" things really aren't all that hot.
Keep in mind that I can eat habanero peppers raw, so I appreciate that level of heat.

For my dinner I tried some of this on tacos.
And.... and...
It was good!
I liked it. It has a good habanero flavor, and an acceptable level of heat.
It's not the hottest sauce I've ever tried, but it was enough to make me have to blow my nose multiple times throughout the meal.

(Try not to think about that part.)

I plan on buying this again.

The only thing that I'd change is that I'd like it to be a little thicker, like taco sauce.

Just imagine the excitement that will happen when I pour some of this in my bowl of bean chili tomorrow.

I don't care for hot for hot's sake, but I do like hot sauces. My fav was "Hell Fire & Damnation" from the El Paso Chile Company. But they don't make it any more. Wah! It was habanero hot yet verrry tasty. I miss it.

I don't think I could handle that sauce. Those peppers should be considered lethal weapons!

MonkeyMan: I like heat in just about all pepper-related forms. Yum! :) I think I might have seen "Hell Fire & Damnation" sauce in a catalog once. I don't think I ever got to try it, though. :(

Linda: Awwww, but they're delicious lethal weapons, so that makes it ok.
