I wouldn’t go as far to say that I am a hot sauce connoisseur, but I put some hot sauce on probably about 75 percent of the meals I eat, breakfast included. (Eggs with a little green Tabasco? So good.)
I received a Tabasco sampler box for Christmas, which included six different hot sauces and three different marinades. It was amazing, and looked kinda like this.
Everything ranging from a more milder green, to garlic, to smoky chipotle, to habanero and more. So thoughtful, and even more delicious. But I saw today that I might need to add to my Tabasco arsenal with the unveiling of the Roasted Red Pepper and the SCORPION SAUCE. (h/t People)
The Scorpion Sauce is the hottest sauce available from Tabasco and is made from a combination of scorpion peppers blended with guava, pineapple and a dash of Original Tabasco Sauce. The final product is a tangy sauce with untamed heat and a touch of Caribbean sweetness. Scorpion Sauce, however, is not for the faint of heart as it is nearly 20 times hotter than the Original Tabasco Sauce.
The Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, on the other hand, is made with slow-roasted Tabasco peppers, onions, basil and balsamic vinegar. The result is a rich, smoky sauce that has similar flavor notes to the Tabasco Chipotle Sauce, but with less raw heat, and is a great condiment, rather than just a source of spice.
