Key West Key Lime Hot Sauce
Key West Key Lime Hot Sauce is a mild serrano pepper sauce flavored with fresh key lime juice and zest. Savory ancho (dried poblano) chiles and New Mexico chiles round out the pepper blend, but it’s the serrano peppers that are the main focus, sharing the spotlight with the tart, tangy key lime juice.
The bright, citrusy flavor of the key limes is highlighted by the apple cider vinegar… however, the vinegar remains in the background; most of the acidity comes from the key lime juice and zest.
Despite its bright and fruit-forward nature, Key West Key Lime Hot Sauce contains no sugar and is very savory rather than sweet.
The serrano, ancho, and New Mexico chiles give the sauce a bold and intense pepper flavor, with smoky, earthy undertones that are further enhanced by a touch of cumin. Savory roasted garlic rounds out the flavor profile.
This spicy but very approachable pepper sauce maintains a surprisingly elegant balance of flavors, with the tangy key limes and apple cider vinegar providing the perfect counterpoint to the smoky, earthy chiles and spices.
Enjoy Key West Key Lime Hot Sauce with burritos, tacos, omelets, fish and seafood dishes, steaks, burgers, chips and black bean dip, pizza, chicken salad, grilled vegetables, or spring rolls. (*Note: because the actual pepper blend changes a bit throughout the year, the color of this sauce can vary significantly, from red to brown. This color variation is normal.)
