Gringo Bandito Hot Sauce Review
Gringo Bandito Hot Sauce – I didn’t expect much from this sauce when I glanced at the label. First impressions can be everything, though it isn’t always wise to judge a book by its cover when you’re dealing with sauces. In this case, a blonde guy in a sombrero with a couple of six-shooters across his chest just looked like a cheap ploy to get my attention. I glanced at the ingredient list and found a pleasant surprise. It reads:
Vinegar, water, habanero peppers, jalapeno peppers, Red Japanese chili peppers, more peppers, salt, mojo, and spices.
As you can tell by the ingredients, this is a pepper sauce. It’s a work of art pepper sauce. The red Japanese chilies give this sauce a chili sauce appeal, actually. The heat factor is such that you can feel a little sweat breaking out on your forehead — just right. The flavors are intense, rich, and exactly where a pepper sauce should be. There’s even some texture going on in here, with bits of pepper and other ingredients.
I love the consistency of Gringo Bandito Hot Sauce. Easily pourable, but thick enough to be of use. I put this sauce to the test with chips, in cheese sauce, on tacos, and with chimichangas. It also makes a great addition to cili, soups, and on the classic Mexican scrambled egg.
Some sauces suck, some are very good and bear keeping on the shelf, and others are simply too good to stop talking about. I haven’t shut up about Gringo Bandito Hot Sauce and it’s surprising quality since I cracked open the bottle. If I have the opportunity to talk about it, I tell people how good it is. I don’t share it, but I talk about it.
Great sauce. Put it on your table and use the hell out of it.
