XXX El Yucateco
May 21, 2010  |  By Scott
This Yucateco sauce is very hot! But, the flavors will surprise you. It is very hot and will hurt you if you use too much, but there is a great balance of heat and depth of flavor from the Habanero's.

Excellent flavor, nice heat

A definite step up from Tabasco. Has the flavor of fresh Habanero peppers, not overwhelmed by vinegar. Hot enough to spice your food nicely, but not so hot that you have to be scared to pour it on. One of the best all-round hot sauces on the market.

Very nice hot sauce. I wouldn't call this dave's insane sauce as far as the heat goes but it's over all flavor hits the spot. Just enough burn and flavor you still can taste your food

my personal favorite

I found this hot sauce in Mexico during my honeymoon and brought it back as a gift for the person who fed our cat while we were gone. He shared some with me and I was blown away. The green and red El Yucateco sauces are all over the place but I couldn't find this brown one anywhere. It is hotter than most but keeps a really good flavor. Some are too hot to enjoy. This hot sauce is fantastic. Thanks for bringing it into the United States.

Nice Stuff

I was skeptical at first, so I bought a bottle. Nice stuff with good taste and heat for the price.

Excellent burn!

I had this hot sauce when I was in Cancun. I loved it then, and love it now. Its the best hot sauce I have ever had. Not too hot, but will kick your ass if you eat too much!

My wife and I found this sauce in Mexico on our honeymoon. It took a while before we found a US distributor but we're glad that we did. I buy a few at a time so I can share with friends. This is a pretty hot sauce and very tasty. I love it on pizza.

I will admit I am one of those who will eat hot for the sake of hot, but i really enjoy sauces that offer heat and great flavor. El Yucateco XXX is one of those great sauces. The flavor goes with most any food, from eggs to steaks. I keep a bottle in my house, at the office and on my boat. Heat is just right for all meals. Highly recommended.

This stuff is my favorite.

Great sauce...heat level is high

Definitely hotter than the more versatile green sauce but in my opinion just as tasty. The only reason that I would not give it a "5" is because I do not feel that I can use it in as many items as the green.

So good!

Just tried it for the first time on my burritos. Delicious habanero flavor, just hot enough to clear your sinuses and make your head sweat lol. I love it. I give it 5 stars because it's the hot AND tasty and better than anything else here in town.

A good choice for just about anything

It's El Yucateco, so you know it's going to be tasty and versatile. This has a richer flavor than the regular red or green, with a nice fruity flavor.

Old standby at my house

I enjoy a good hot sauce, but it has to have excellent flavor. Your sauces are the best for all the right reasons.
