First product that I have tasted from Born to Hula, Habanero Guajillo is a versatile, mexican flavored hot sauce that I have been using lately on almost everything!
This sauce is made with a widely used pepper in the mexican cuisine: the Guajillo, which is the name given to the Mirasol pepper in its dried form.
As this pepper is more used for its flavours and to bring a vibrant red colour to the sauces than for its heat level, Born to Hula added some Habanero to give it an extra kick.


Ingredients:
Distilled white vinegar, Red bell pepper, Guajillo pepper, Habanero pepper, Garlic, Salt, Onion powder, Cumin, Lime juice, Xanthan gum


Label: 8/10
Such as the others products of their range, the label has on its middle Born to Hula's characteristic logo made of a long red pepper placed on a festive mood background style.
The colors are simple and not agressive, just the red from the pepper is eye-catching as emerges from the label.

Born To Hula 1

Aromas: 8/10
Mexican cuisine! This is the first thing that comes to mind when smelling it from the bottle.
A really pleasant smell coming from the mix of different aromas from the bell Pepper, onion and cumin, inviting you to cook a mexican recipe especially for the sauce, to make it shine!


Consistency and Appearance: 7/10
Nicely blend like a puree, not too runny, flows easily from the bottle and sticks well to the food.
It has a very nice shining red color with some small bits of Guajillo, but not that much.


Born To Hula 2

Taste: 7/10
Pleasant in mouth, the sauce is not strong and you can put a good quantity on your food so you will get plenty of flavours!
It does not have a vinegary taste, there is really this flavour from Mexico, we can feel a mix of onion and red peppers, some berries undertones from the Guajillo and a tiny note of garlic.


Heat: 6/10
Medium sauce, upgraded with a pinch of Habanero.
This is a hot sauce made to get more flavours than heat, but a hot sauce anyway!


Recommended Use:
Goes great with pizza, eggs, tacos, sauteed rice or seafood like sauteed shrimps with garlic (and flambeed with Pastis or Tequila), and anything you want to give this Mexican flavor!


Overall Impression:
Rating 3,5
I really appreciate its aromas, smelling the sauce is pleasant and has this something that makes your mind travel and think about what you can eat with it.
I also appreciated the fact that we don't feel the vinegar, this makes it a nice everyday hot sauce and is the kind that you need ready in your fridge at any occasion.
