Fuego Box: A Hot Sauce for every occasion
Fuego Box was created by a guy who went down the hot sauce rabbit hole . It started with an early Tapatío obsession and advanced with the likes of Cholula, Crystal, and Sriracha. After that, things really got crazy... bhut jolokia and african fatalii peppers; locally harvested, hand-bottled hot sauces; and unique and delicious flavors that go with just about every kind of food.
In a nutshell, Fuego Box wants to bring emerging hot sauces that you've probably never heard of to your hot sauce shelf (you have one, right?). No need for you to go down the hot sauce rabbit hole; we already took the trip and came back with some damn fine sauces. We always focus on flavor over 'ass-burning heat' and avoid gimmicky hot sauces like the plague. So go ahead, place an order and get ready for the world's best hot sauces to come a-knockin'!
If you ask my husband he will say hot sauce doesn't have just one use or occasion. It's something you can use for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anytime in between. He actually likes to start his day out with a hearty breakfast - topped with hot sauce of course. When he took his first bite of the Hoardable hot sauce he said "damn that's good". I guess that meant he liked what he tasted! He said it had an instant spice with a heat that builds. Just his kind of hot sauce, one that doesn't fade after the first bite.
Next on the menu was the Char Man Verde Hot Sauce on homemade fajitas. My husband said it had a hint of garlic that gave it a unique flavor blend for this type of food. It's not too hot but has a good warm spice to it. He said being a Verde sauce it would make it a great addition to tacos, burritos and other Mexican dishes.
And finally to round out the meals with a big dinner of steak, veggies and cheese. Friendly Fire hot sauce has a bold flavor to it and pairs very well with meat. He said it would be perfect to mix inside of meatloaf or burgers before putting them on the grill. We even saved some to spice up a batch of beef jerky because he liked the flavor so much.
The nice thing about the Fuego subscription box service is that you control how many bottles of sauce you'll receive and how often. You can get one or three bottles, and you can get them monthly or quarterly. This is nice for those that may use them more often than others. I know in my house we go through quite a bit of hot sauce. My husband tends to put it on EVERYTHING! He even put it on his ice cream just to see what it would taste like. I honestly thought he was crazy, but he said it really didn't taste too bad...I'll take his word for it.
