So you may have noticed a bit of a change with The Chilli Pad. It’s undergone a makeover! I’m hoping to make more changes in the coming weeks but I’d love to know your views so please leave a comment on this post if you like or dislike and what else you would like to see.
Before Christmas my partner was out in the states again which means…hot sauces! He always comes back with one or two new ones for me to try. This time I got “Louisiana” Hot Sauce and D.L.Jardine’s Blazin’ Saddle. Two very different sauces.
The Louisiana is a thin sauce made from a mixture of cayenne peppers, vinegar and salt. This sauce is perfect for spicing up any dish; chilli con carne, eggs, taco, pizza, soups, drinks and even popcorn. The 354ml bottle even comes with three recipes on the label.
The bottler claims “One drop does it” but I didn’t find it exceedingly hot. It has a bit of a smokey flavour to it but very morish.

The Blazin’ Saddle is a chunkier sauce but, made from Habanero peppers from the foothills of the Mayan mountains in Belize, it packs a much stronger punch. Other ingredients include carrots, onions, lime juice, vinegar, garlic and salt.
This sauce makes a good dip and the lime juice gives it a unique zesty kick. The heat is intense so as the bottle says, you better “saddle up for a ride to remember”!
