El Yucateco is one of those sauces that’s always around – right until you are craving it and cannot find it anywhere. It  comes in some very bright colors and some not so bright (or even pretty) colors. For reference you can see the review of El Yucateco Salsa Kutbil-ik de Chile Habanero Hot Sauce – not pretty but very tasty. El Yucateco is one of those sauces that I always have on hand – it’s a habit to just grab a bottle while at the market. At the market, it’s about $3 a bottle – but it’s less online if you are ordering from Amazon for other things anyways.

This is a standard go to sauce – it’s not going to knock your socks off – but it performs consistently, time and time again. The deep red of the habanero and Red 40 make the sauce almost look like ketchup – but trust me, it has a whole lot more bite then Heinz.

A little of this sauce goes a long way because it does have some great heat. It’s not so hot that you’ll be burning your throat or anything – but it is hot enough for you to wonder why they don’t label the heat level on the bottle. Especially because it’s sold in regular super markets.

Aroma wise – it smells of habaneros – pure, deep red habaneros. And that’s what it should smell exactly like. Because of the seasonings, this is a Mexican style sauce – best on mexican foods. I couldn’t see myself putting this on a BBQ sandwich or sushi – but on breakfast tacos, this sauce is almost always a player.

    El Yucateco makes some good sauces. This sauce is not as hot as I would prefer or expect from a habanero based sauce but it’s good flavor and I pick it up from time to time. Pretty easy to find at most grocery stores in my area

    I like the El Yucateco hot sauce too. It’s not to hot, but has a really good Habanero flavor.
