Review – Born To Hula Habanero Guajillo

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.

A quick tasting of a dried Jay's Peach Ghost Scorpion

It has been a while now that I have some dried pods of this new pepper which is a cross of a Bhut Jolokia (Ghost pepper) and a Trinidad Scorpion (developped in the USA and existing in red and peach - also not stable yet), I finally decided to taste it a bit before that I grow some plants of this variety next season.


I took a piece of one and chewed it during around 30 seconds in order to check the speed and heat level, as well as the flavors and tastes we can perceive, especially as the C. Chinense have a lot of flavors even if they are superhot, they do not only have an extreme heat level and no taste!


Jay's Peach Ghost Scorpion

Heat analyze:
Well, it has a direct burn stinging the tongue then suddenly exploding in the mouth, making you carefully think about the moment to decide to swallow it and what will happen then!
Once swallowed the tip of the tongue keeps tingling a while, then the heat goes from the throat to the stomach bring a sensation of heat inside, this will be perfect for this winter!


Flavors analyze:
The flavor is more of Caribbean peppers, so from the scorpion side.
It has this slightly smoky flavor remembering a Chocolate Habanero, and the sweet flavor of a milk caramel candy that you still can get aftertaste.


Suggested use:
From this special milk caramel candy flavor, this would be awesome to use it to cook some chilli chocolates, hot brownies and cookies, and also in a chocolate sauce to use with ice creams.
And talking about chocolate sauce, this would make a powerful and tasty Mole Poblano sauce!


This new pepper is anyway really interesting, now have to find a recipe to use it with!
Thanks to Jim Duffy for these goodies!
