3 Hot Sauces You May Not Know

In the US, we always hear about the same hot sauces: tabasco, sriracha, and cholula. They’re great and all, but what about the world of other hot sauces out there? Let’s take a look at 3 lesser known but equally amazing hot sauces.

#1: Harissa

Harissa is a North African hot sauce made with several different peppers, garlic paste, herbs, and vegetable oil. Like sriracha, it can be paired with almost anything: meats, veggies, bread… if you need to crank up the heat, look no further than harissa!

#2: Aji

Aji’s green color may throw you off, but don’t be fooled- this Peruvian sauce definitely packs a punch. It is most often used with meat, but also makes a great dipping sauce. If you’re looking to try something new in the kitchen, we recommend aji sauce!

#3: Sambal

Sambal is an Indonesian hot sauce made with chili peppers, shrimp paste, fish sauce, vinegar, and a variety of other spices and juices. It sports a unique texture and a wonderfully complex flavor that pairs well with meat, fish, and vegetables alike. Next time you find yourself reaching for the same old hot sauce, try sambal instead!
