I recently heard about the El Yucateco products from a company I’ve been working with. I had not heard of the brand before, and am personally a big wimp in the hot sauce market, but I know that my husband and son absolutely love it. I figured it would be great to give it a try and see what they thought.
I made some tacos for dinner and had the different kinds of El Yucateco sauces available for them to try. My husband said that the Chipotle hot sauce tasted great!! Seemed to have a Tex-Mex style to it. Even I was able to try that one, which is a miracle!! I’m one that can’t usually handle a pepperoncini! ha/ha It had a great flavor and not too much of a kick. The other two were even a bit too hot for my husband, and that means that those suckers were HOT!! He wasn’t really able to try much of them with the flavor being a bit overpowering. Our son thought that with his Dad saying they were too hot, that meant a lot, so he didn’t even want to try them.
If you are one that likes that extra kick, than I would recommend the Habanero red & green sauces. The Chipotle one is definitely one that would be perfect with beef, or even chicken – so if you like ones with more flavor, than kick, that would be my choice!
The customer service of the company was amazing and the quality of their El Yucateco products, I would highly recommend. To get some for your family, go here.
