Clark + Hopkins Oaxaca Hot Sauce:
Get ready to taste the flavors of Mexico in a whole new way with the Oaxaca Hot Sauce from Clark & Hopkins! It starts with the mezcal, which is kind of like a smokey tequila. Add to that some chipotles -- which are actually smoked red jalapeño peppers -- and you know you're in for some smoked deliciousness. (Fun fact: Red jalapeños are just... ripe green jalapeños. Now you know.)
Add to that the flavors of a mole negro sauce, typical to Oaxaca, and you get onion, garlic, and yes, even Mexican chocolate thrown into the mix. It's an amazing combination that you just have to try to believe. And with habanero peppers and serranos to go along with the chipotles we've already mentioned, the Oaxaca Hot Sauce brings the heat.
This will be great on top of enchiladas, eggs, or any grilled meat.... or why not go out on a limb and have it with turkey, which is a traditional way to eat mole? Any way you choose, you're going to love the Oaxaca Hot Sauce from Clark & Hopkins -- grab some before it's all gone!
Our reviewer thought that this did taste like mole, which he loved! Heatwise, he gave it a 4.5 out of 10 on the Chilizilla heat scale, where Tabasco sauce is a 5. Put it all together, and it's a flavorful, interesting hot sauce with some nice heat that isn't overbearing.
And one quick note, for the note-takers out there: Officially, Clark and Hopkins call this the Oaxaca Pepper Sauce, just like McIlhenny and its Tabasco Pepper Sauce -- but to us, it's all just amazing hot sauce! All the same, here's what you'll find inside this amazing hot sauce:
