Javelina Red Sauce Review

Javelina Red Sauce – From WesTexasHerbs.com

Jason Russo of TexasFood.com (reviewed here) sent us a bottle of Javelina Red Sauce to review.

Javelina Red Sauce

I opened this bottle not expecting much because the ingredient list seemed so simple. My first taste was on tacos made by a friend that lacked the spiciness we are used to in our taco recipe. I was happy to find that Javelina Red Sauce really kicked up the taco, and gave it a credible amount of heat…. not so hot you couldn’t stand it, but full of flavor with a nice heat that lingered.

That’s the way I like my hot sauce… give me some heat that stays with you, and a good flavor that makes you want more.

Ingredients: water, red peppers, salt, spices, peaches, garlic, acedic acid, xanthan gum, sodium benzoate as a preservative, habanero peppers

The first hit is vinegar with heat following. I have to tell you, when I first tasted this, I thought it was just another hot sauce, but after putting this on tacos, eggs, grilled cheese, and more, more than ever, it is my favorite hot sauce.

There’s no sugar in this recipe. The ingredient list includes peaches, but the fruit just smooths out the sauce, it doesn’t sweeten it. So if you’re expecting a sweet sauce, this is not the one for you. If you want a nice heat that lingers without hurting you too much, and gives you a nice flavor to boot, this is the one I recommend. I’m keeping it in my pantry!

Brian says “I like that this sauce is thin, with chunky bits in it. I’d love to try it on some grilled shrimp!”

And it’s a great deal at $2.89 for a 5 oz. bottle. You can order it here from TexasFood.com.
