Whenever I make my chicken salads, I tend to make them spicy. My go-to sauce is usually Frank's Red Hot Wing sauce. It's the perfect amount of hotness, without making it feel like I could breathe fire like a dragon.
So, I was intrigued by Chef Cristiane's Hot Sauce. Could it replace Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce as my go-to hot sauce? I set out to find out.
^^What I received^^
A few days after received this, It was time to make my weekly batch of chicken salad. I was lazy this time and used canned chicken for ease. I also used some celery in the salad, not only to get my veggie intake up, but to give the salad a bit of crunch.
After mixing the chicken, celery, ranch dressing and mayonnaise together, I poured in a generous helping of the sauce. It gave the salad an orangish color, as shown.
^^Chicken salad made with Chef Cristiane's Brazilian Gourmet Hot Sauce^^
The sauce made this particular batch of chicken salad EXTREMELY hot; way hotter than I'm used to. It wasn't a terrible flavor, but it did make my mouth and tongue burn with the hotness level. I'd equate the temperature level with pure Tabasco sauce or habanero peppers.
I'm not entirely sure if it's the way the sauce is supposed to taste or if it produces this flavor mixed with the eggs and vinegar of the mayonnaise, but after mixing the sauce in, the salad had a sour/spoiled taste to it. I know it wasn't, because everything was fresh, but the salad had a tangy taste to it, like the mayonnaise had been left in the hot sun all day.
The only problem I see disabled people having with this depends on their personal preference on hot foods. If they love hot/spicy foods, they'll have no issues. If a cooking onion is too spicy for their diet, those people will be in tears after eating this.
This is available from Amazon for $15.99.
Very flavorful sauce; just not the best for use in mayonnaise based salads.
WOULD RECOMMEND: Yes
