Anyone who reads FoxValleyFoodie.com for any length of time quickly sees that I’m not afraid to spice up a dish. However, hot sauce isn’t added just for heat, it is an invaluable flavor component as well. El Yucateco® as long been one of my favorite hot sauces, and I have written about them frequently (Spicy Honey Glazed Turkey, & Jamaican Black Bean Soup are two of my favorite examples).
