NEW Hot Sauces

Magma Hot Sauce: Looks like a lava lamp, and burns like lava from an active volcano! A generous dollop of pure pepper extract is suspended in the clear liquid sauce base for the lava-lamp effect. Shake well to blend, then enjoy by the drop on anything you want to ignite.

* Frostbite Hot Sauce is the world's first white hot sauce and delivers an icy-hot burn. Because it dissolves colorlessly in water, it's ideal for spicing up cocktails, lemonade, soda and other beverages, as well as clear broths, soups, and more.

Ghost Pepper Hot Sauces: We have several new ones, including The Ghost (a Caribbean style hot sauce that blends jolokia peppers with papaya and passionfruit in a traditional savory carrot-lime juice base with a dash of garlic & onion); Green Ghost Hot Sauce (jalapenos provide the eerie green color plus their own distinctive heat when blended with jolokias, habaneros and a splash of pepper extract); Da Bomb Ghost Pepper (a surprisingly edible ultra-hot blend of ghost peppers, habanero & mango without the addition of extract so there's no odd aftertaste); and Lethal Ingestion Jolokia Hot Sauce (bottled to look like a hazardous industrial chemical, this unique combination of fatalii peppers, red savina chiles and ghost peppers delivers intriguing peppery flavor and a spectrum of heat levels).

Pure Poison is only for those who've built up a tolerance to extreme hot sauces, or have on hand an antidote (I recommend a glass of cold milk). If habanero hot sauces usually aren't hot enough for you, this habanero sauce will change your mind thanks to the addition of capsaicin extract to magnify and prolong the burn but without masking that trademark habanero flavor.

* Spontaneous Combustion Hot Sauce comes in an eye-catching box and will have you bursting into flames if you use too much. Similar in heat to the original Dave's Insanity Sauce, the difference is that this one tastes like a traditional Caribbean habanero hot sauce (unlike Dave's Insanity) but with FAR more heat than a traditional sauce.

Z Nothing Beyond Hot Sauce: Don't be intimidated by the name--while Z is indeed supremely hot, it rewards your courage with an enticing tropical flavor from guava, passion fruit, banana, papaya and pineapple in a savory West Indian-style mustard-vinegar-habanero-tomato base.

New Mad Dog Hot Sauces: All of the hot sauces featured in our new Mad Dog .357 Gift Box are also available individually, namely Mad Dog Ghost Pepper Sauce (a unique blend of jolokias with peri peri peppers & habaneros), Collector's Edition .357 packing 600,000 SHUs of fiery heat and available with a golden bullet keychain or, if you prefer, with a miniature gun keychain; and the hottest of the bunch, the Silver Collector's Edition which a blistering 750,000 SHU of heat and a bullet keychain that hides a tasting spoon in a secret compartment.

July Recipe: Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Roasting Red Peppers

Here's our take on a recipe from the folks at Maui Pepper Company. You can roast the peppers on your grill or under the broiler, or quickly cook them in your microwave oven. Substitute orange bell peppers and toss in a minced scotch bonnet pepper or orange habanero for a fiery-hot, bright-orange dip. It's devilishly delicious with raw veggies, crackers, chips or pita wedges!

2 red bell peppers
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
8oz package of Neufchatel or lite cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup lowfat or fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/2 to 1 Tbs (to taste) Maui Pepper Mango Meltdown or other similar hot sauce

Halve peppers lengthwise, remove core & seeds, then roast/cook on grill (cut side up), under broiler (cut side down), or in the microwave (cut side down in shallow dish with 1 Tbs water, cover with plastic wrap leaving 1 vented corner, microwave until tender: 8-10 mins). When peppers are cool enough to handle, remove as much skin as you can (rub off if grilled/broiled, or use a spoon to scoop out the flesh if microwaved). Place pepper flesh in blender or food processor with remaining ingredients, process until smooth. Transfer to serving bowl and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.
