I discovered Mountainman Fire Roasted Habanero Sauce by accident - literally. For some time now, the Carolina Sauce Company online store has stocked another flavor-packed hot sauce by the same manufacturer: Mountainman Roasted Corn Garlic Chipotle Hot Sauce. When we received a recent shipment of that latter sauce, however, apparently our supplier inadvertenly sent us the fire-roasted habanero sauce instead. You can call it a mistake, but I prefer to call it serendipity. One taste and I knew we'd have to start carrying both flavors of Mountainman Hot Sauce! Fire-roasting the habanero peppers gives this hot sauce an earthy, slightly smoky flavor that complements the fiery burn of the habanero peppers, resulting in a serious hot sauce with robust flavor. The texture is eye- and tongue-pleasing, with little bits of pepper and seeds. The base is red wine vinegar, which helps it blend better with food and avoids that harsh vinegar edge that can be off-putting with white vinegar-based hot sauces. The ingredients are all-natural, too.
I like to use Mountain Man Fire-Roasted Habanero Sauce on heartier dishes including grilled or roasted meats, burgers, chili and other Tex-Mex fare, and also sparingly on pizza and Italian pasta & meat dishes. It's also a great way to add some kick to comfort food like meatloaf and stew - sure to warm you on a cold winter evening! If you've never tried Mountain Man Fire-Roasted Habanero Sauce, go ahead and take a chance on a bottle today. I'm sure you'll be glad you did, just like I was!
