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 families seafood restaurant that opened when he was 8 years old. He was always in the kitchen or behind the sushi bar creating recipes, in his early 20’s I became obsessed with hot sauce.
A few years later he started making his own hot sauces and the Char Man Original was initially used as a finishing sauce on a sushi roll. The sauce became popular with customers requesting to take it home. In 2006, Chris asked his friend who is an artist to design me a label where they paid homage to the legend of the Char Man on Ojai, CA. Listen to Chris' full story on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast.
