This “Quick Pick” is from South Carolina – a super-thick hot sauce featuring cayenne and serrano peppers.

Quick Pick: Pablo’s Phoenix Hot Sauce

Paul Eubanks, a member of the Hot Sauce+ Community on Google+, reached out to us about his Phoenix and Peaches ‘n Heat sauces. They looked good, and a few bucks later, we had a couple of bottles here to play with. Originally launched on (and some are still available as of this writing), Paul is now taking orders for these big 8 ounce bottles on his site,

Why this is a Quick Pick:

Because of its unique and pungent flavor, and super-thick consistency. Serrano peppers are a favorite here at HotSauceDaily, and when added to the everyday cayenne chile pepper, a new burst of flavor is the result. Phoenix almost tastes like a sun-drenched exotic chile pepper sauce from another land.

Ingredients: aged cayenne and serrano peppers, salt, vinegar, lime, spices

Overall impression: Brings some pizzaz to pizza and makes a nice dipping hot sauce for just about anything from snacks (pizza rolls and pretzels) to wings.

Pros: Simple ingredients, simple label and graphics – great “small crafted” look and feel. Big flavor.

Cons: Lime ingredient may not be fresh lime juice – something is just a bit off-putting about the citrus, although Pablo’s claims to use only fresh ingredients.

Ordering: Visit to order this and their other sauces in big 8 ounce bottles, and tell them HotSauceDaily sent you!

  1. Hey thanks for the great review guys! We’re glad you guys dug the sauce. We have a few other varieties, and some more in the works available through the website About the citrus, we use whole limes in Phoenix and found early on in production the consistency of limes we can source varies throughout the growing season, so the consistency between batches of sauce can also vary slightly since this is produced in small-ish batches. Also if the limes were frozen previously, it imparts a flavor which some might find a bit off. We’ve since corrected this in subsequent production batches. Again, many thanks for the review!

    1. Can’t wait to see what else you have up your sleeve, Paul. The quality of your sauce speaks volumes, so I know the next flavors will be just as good.

      Thanks for the explanation of the lime/citrus ingredient. I hope our readers will appreciate it.

  2. I really love this hot sauce – it’s everything Tapatio wishes it was. The flavor is on point & the heat level is pleasantly higher than most “Mexican table sauce” I’ve had. I really love this sauce for it’s straightforward simplicity – makes for a very utilitarian sauce that’s equally at home on pizza or burgers as on tacos or burritos. Would be spectacular for a BBQ shrimp marinade. I highly recommend Pablo’s Phoenix to anyone looking for a great traditional style hot sauce.
