Where has this stuff been all my life? I thought I was content with Thai peanut sauce, and I tolerated jalapenos in salsa, but if I’d ever run across habeneros before I surely didn’t know it. It’s definitely hot, but stops just shy of being painful, with an underlying pleasantly mild taste that hits the spot. I just had a turkey sandwich with barbecue sauce mixed with a couple drops of habanero sauce, and it was the best damn turkey sandwich I’ve ever made myself.
What are some other things I can use habanero sauce in? There’s the obvious meat choices like adding some to a burger or taco, but is there anything really interesting I can do with it? I’m thinking dips or unusual food items, but my creativity is coming up short.
