I enjoy smoky hot sauces. That’s probably why Born to Hula’s multi-award winning Ghost of Ancho hot sauce has become one of my favorite sauces. This is a fairly spicy sauce with sweet and smoky notes created by smoked ghost peppers (aka Bhut Jolokia). Packed with flavor and ghostly heat this sauce will definitely creep up on you!

Taste & Smell: The smell is sweet, smoky and tangy.

Heat Level:  This sauce has a good level of heat from the ghost peppers, that builds and lasts for several minutes.

Texture: Slightly chunky, easily pourable.

Uses:  Great on pizza and Mexican foods.

Flavor: 8/10  –  Heat: 5/10

Since heat tolerance is subjective, I consider Sriracha to be a 3/10, which can be pretty spicy to some.

Ingredients: Distilled Vinegar, Red Bell Peppers, Ancho Chile, Habanero Peppers, Garlic, Smoked Bhut Jolokia, Salt, Onion, Cumin, Lime Juice, Xanthin Gum

About: Founded in 2010 by Ed Bucholtz, Born to Hula is based in Highlands, New Jersey. After trying several of the novelty, extreme-heat sauces a revelation came to Ed, “Why don’t I try to make my own, and make it better?”

Using only the freshest ingredients, Born to Hula sauces are hand crafted in small batches, using peppers from local farmers’ markets in the Monmouth New Jersey area
