Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce
Unlike many habanero-flavored hot sauces that are incendiary hot and over-spiced, Secret Aardvark keeps the heat in check with a little fruity sweetness that falls between Caribbean and Tex-Mex hot sauces.
Fruity habanero pairs beautifully with tomatoes, avocado, corn, even melon, making this hot sauce one of our favorite summertime sauces. Try mixing a little with extra-virgin olive oil and a splash of lemon or lime juice for your next tomato salad or toss with mixed melon wedges, cilantro leaves and a little crumbled queso fresco. Or make this the “secret” ingredient in your next batch of guacamole, topping with a handful of crunchy toasted pepitas to temper the spice.
And if you’re one of those who likes ketchup on your eggs (we know, its polarizing), Secret Aardvark is a breakfast champion. Matt, our food editor, blows through this sauce at the breakfast table, slathering it on his omelets, scrambles and fried eggs alike, though he thinks it really pairs best with the crispy fried corned beef hash at his local breakfast joint.
