Benito's Hot Sauce - Old Coy Dog

Benito's Hot Sauce

About the Sauce: Like an old coy dog, this sauce may not look intimidating, but it is sneaky. A Louisiana style sauce crafted with fresh red peppers, fresh onions and garlic also packs in a creeping bit from organic bhut jolokia (ghost) peppers. A touch of tang and then a nice afterglow is what the Old Coy Dog brings to your taste experience. Support Benito's Hot Sauce and Vermont local farmers by trying Old Coy Dog.
