I am a great fan of hot sauces. I buy them and use them whenever possible. I top everything with them, well almost. And there are many to choose from. My wife and friends know my passion for hot sauce so they either buy them outright for me or tell me where they are. I do enjoy Tabasco sauce especially the green. But there are times when more of a spark is required.
Recently my wife returned from a shopping trip to World Market and brought home a bottle of Blair’s AFTER DEATH sauce.It comes plastic wrapped with a small plastic skull attached to the bottle by a chain and a warning label that states “This product contains the hottest known ingredients on the planet earth. Please use with extreme caution. And also to keep out of reach of children.” It would be wise to heed this warning. This is without a doubt the hottest hot sauce I have ever tried. Ever. If someone unsuspecting should try even a teaspoon of this it could truly cause great discomfort if they are not forewarned. I would never in any instance allow a child to try even a taste of this molten magic. I cannot be more serious about the amount of fire this sauce produces. But for those who live to eat with heat this is the real deal.
It is five fluid ounces of pure heat. But, most importantly, along with the heat comes great flavor. Blair’s After Death sauce contains red and orange habaneros, vinegar, fresh cayenne, smashed garlic, chipotle, pepper extract, lime juice, cilantro, fresh herbs and spices. It contains “absolutely” no preservatives or artificial ingredients so it must be refrigerated after opening.
We tried this sauce recently on some juevos ranchers and some broiled chicken breasts. I can take some heat but my wife could probably withstand pure lava and she thought this was “very hot.” The taste was magnificent but I had to make sure I did not sprinkle too much on at one time. We both decided this will be a sauce we will always have on hand as long as we have fire extinguishers and ice cream at the ready!
I also make a lot of my own fresh sauces and these ingredients are about the same as I use. It tastes homemade and fresh on everything I’ve used it on. Suggested uses for AFTER DEATH sauce: “use sparingly on wings, meatloaf, seafood, chile, cheeseburgers, sushi, or anything you desire!” So far it has been the best tasting hot sauce I’ve ever tasted. And as far as I am concerned a hot sauce must contain a good amount of cilantro a touch of vinegar and a tad of garlic.
I always tell my friends and family how good any hot sauce is and that the sauce I make at home is made with love and a certain amount of respect for the chili gods. The makers of Blair’s AFTER DEATH sauce state theirs is “made with great karma.” I believe it is.
