About the Sauce: Great verde hot sauces must have tons of flavor, and this sauce is an example of how what seems to be a simple recipe can deliver a complex deep flavor. Through fire roasting local green chiles this sauce balances sweet, savory, sour, and spicy to create a highly addicting sauce. This tangy sauce typically goes super fast because it adds great flavor with mild to medium heat.
Uses: Splash a solid dose on carnitas or fish tacos to add that verde salsa flavor with some extra heat.
Heat: Mild to Medium
Ingredients: Water, Chiles, Vinegar, Onions, Garlic, Sugar, Lemon Juice, Salt, Spices, Xanthan Gum
Size: 5 oz Bottle
Maker Story: Chris Sutton is the creator and cook behind Char Man Brand Hot Sauces. Chris grew up in his family's seafood restaurant, always in the kitchen or behind the sushi bar creating recipes. By his early 20’s, he had become obsessed with hot sauce.
A few years later after his fascination with heat began, Chris started producing hot sauces as a condiment for the family restaurant. The Char Man Original (Chris's first sauce) was originally used as a finishing sauce on a sushi roll. The sauce became extremely popular, with many customers requesting to take Chris’ sauce home with them.
In 2006, Chris founded Char Man Brand and began selling his sauce outside of the family restaurant. Named after a local legend of the Ojai Valley in Ojai, California, Char Man Brand has expanded to offer a wide range of delicious and unique hot sauces.
