Inspired by one of our favorite culinary traditions, Los Calientes Barbacoa pays homage to the origins of barbecue. Deep earthy notes from chipotle chillies blend with applewood smoked red jalapenos to evoke the essential elements of ancient barbecue: earth, smoke and heat. Sweet apricots and tart tomatillos balance things out and compliment the bright citrus notes, while cilantro and cumin add herbal complexity. Medium-heat habanero heat spreads warmly over the tongue. No one ingredient outshines the others, for a sauce that is uniquely complete - just like the satisfaction of that perfect bite. A new must-have for all your summer favorites: slow cooking meats, grilling veggies, topping tacos and so much more!
