1 Ugly Baby + 1 Ugly Label = 1 Delicious sweet hot sauce.
Ugly Baby Sweet Hot Sauce – from Tropical Island Gourmet
Now here’s one for the books. Ugly Baby’s label is, well, ugly! I had a little reservation about even trying the sauce, but knowing the creator is a chef, and knowing his previous sauces were stellar… I opened the
ugly stuff er, bottle.
Two or 3 spoonfuls and 4 tacos later, I was wowed. This is a delicious sauce that just rocked our tacos.
On pizza it was a little too tame for me, but still sweet and flavorful.
Heat Rating: – Sharp and tangy heat comes on quick under the sweetness. Nice flavor/heat balance. Enjoyable.
Overall Rating: – Quality flavor, clean profile, quick sweet heat that comes in fast. Cumin (think southwestern) is heavy on the back end. Weird label but awesome sauce. Recommended.
Ingredients: aged red peppers, jalapeño peppers, cider vinegar, light brown sugar, cilantro, cumin, salt, citric acid and xanthan gum.
Texture & Appearance: Burnt orange color with flecks of herbs and peppers, this sauce is a bit thin bodied. Nice pour.
Taste / Heat: A sweet hot sauce with flavors of cilantro and cumin bring on a big Southwest taste. Light bodied and slightly spicy, the sweetness will win you over. Yummy.
