Dave’s Gourmet Crazy Caribbean Hot Sauce
This spicy sauce is definitely on fire, thanks to a generous dose of Puerto Rican red habaneros. The secret ingredient—carrots—adds a bit of sweetness and earthiness to the flavor profile. One Amazon reviewer said that the price is a steal since one bottle contains “more hot sauce than one person would ever be able to use in a lifetime.” Challenge accepted.

Mangoes and raisins give this Jamaican condiment a fruity profile. In addition to cloves, Pickapeppa is spiked with sour tamarind, black pepper, and warming ginger. Clearly there’s a lot going on here. Don’t pick it up expecting any old one-note hot sauce. Definitely serve it alongside jerk chicken. And then dash it over eggs, grilled pork, and anything else that would benefit from a taste of the islands.

This habanero-based sauce has just a bit of tomato paste for sweetness. Mix a bit with olive oil, then brush it over a steak before grilling. The resulting heat was like sipping “an expensive whiskey—lots of flavor, but the steak doesn’t burn your mouth.” Makes a great addition to your Hot Sauce Display!

Seed Ranch Flavor Co. Thai Green Hot Sauce
A great companion for a stir fry or rice bowl, the handmade hot sauce includes lemongrass, Thai ginger, cilantro, basil, Serrano peppers, and lime juice. Plus, it’s Paleo, vegan, and sugar-free, if you’re into that kind of thing. Take the extra advice from Amazon reviewer Lodro: “After I tasted it I ordered a box and handed it out to friends as gifts for a month; I can’t recommend it more highly.”
Yellowbird Habanero Condiment
This super-citrusy habanero hot sauce is a little thicker than standard hot sauce—more akin to Sriracha. A kick of both tangerine and lime give it good backbone to stand against the heat.

Matouk’s Calypso Sauce
This Scotch bonnet–based sauce comes from Trinidad. Onion powder and mustard seed bring extra flavor, but it’s the peppers themselves that give it the fruity, tropical profile it’s known for. Bonus: Its thickness is similar to ketchup, so for anyone who’s been looking for the perfect hot condiment for French fries, you’ve found it.
The Pepper Plant California-Style Hot Sauce
Did we know that California had its own style of hot sauce? Not until now. This one is noted for being as much of a salty seasoning as it is a mildly hot one, so be mindful when dashing it over absolutely anything and everything (but especially burritos).
D.L. Jardine’s Blazin’ Saddle XXX Hot Sauce
KatieD put it right: “This is my favorite hot sauce. My obsession is real and I’m not even slightly ashamed. It has a kick that will get you, but the taste is amazing and is worth the sting.” This sauce is deservedly popular in its home state of Texas. Now you can make it a thing in your home state, too.
