The only green hot sauce in our mix, El Yucateco is a deliciously bright, citrusy, and smoky hot sauce to add to your pantry. Our group reaction after trying it was a very Paris Hilton: “That’s hot!” It’s hotter than my other favorite Mexican hot sauce, Valentina, and to me is the perfect example of a complex and satisfying hot sauce that keeps you going in for more. I had to top up my teaspoon when we were tasting.

Spiced and spicy, Tunisian harissa is chili paste that can be cooked with or loosened into a sauce. It tends to be made with dried chilis and is often flavored with lemon juice and spices like cumin, coriander, caraway, and deliciously, sometimes even rose. The flavor profiles will differ according to the brand, for the most heat and flavor it’s most reliable to look for the Tunisian brands, which have the added bonus packaging so beautiful you’ll never want to store them away.

The same goes, in my opinion, for all hot sauces: just think of all the flavors that make world-favorite Sriracha what it is.

Naturally I invited Artur to the challenge, but unfortunately, I accidentally ordered the hottest Samyang sauce on the market—and it was an experience. The first flavor that comes through is a savory, caramel-y, almost peanutty note, which quickly EXPLODES into a heat that takes you on a red hot trip for 10 minutes. We were pacing around the room, huffing and puffing, and I grabbed the closest cold drink on hand (we were in a shoot kitchen, so this happened, somehow to be pure grenadine syrup—not sure I’d recommend). The spice does calm down after about 10 minutes, but those 10 minutes sure are intense. Flavor: Savory and nutty, but pretty rapidly dulled by heatHeat: EXPLOSIVELY HOT
