iBurn: The Best Little Hot Sauce Shop in Texas ... Or Any Other State
I bought a 8-ounce bottle of the stuff for only $6.00 and took it home to taste. The heat is perfect -- hotter than Tabasco or Frank's, but not as hot as habanero sauces. Whereas Tabasco is 90 percent vinegar, Tabanero includes key lime juice, which adds tartness, agave for sweetness, and grapefruit seed extract for heft. It was delicious on breakfast tacos and on a hot dog. I even poured some on a spoon and tried it straight. Tabanero is indeed a new classic condiment.
Wreck boldly predicted that Tabanero will someday overtake Tabasco as the favorite fiery sauce. Langshaw said it's a gateway product, and told me that I would be back to iBurn for hotter stuff. What I can say for certain is Tabanero is good enough to drink straight from the bottle.
