2016 and Beyond

2015 was an exciting time for Taco Jesus Gourmet Foods as we launched our hot sauce and taco spices brand.   We were honored with a 2nd place win in the World Hot Sauce Awards less than 6 months into our adventure and picked up two first place awards and another 2nd place from the Hot Pepper Awards in our first year.

We have a great vision for the future and will work hard this year to bring that vision to fruition,   The craft hot sauce market is a wide open marketplace and we look forward to establishing ourselves among the leaders in the field through innovative marketing and growth strategies.Hellcat Habanero - the Flamin' Hellcats  Salsa VerdeIMG_1298Thank you to everyone that helped us get where we are.

We intend to get more involved in regional and local festivals and offer sauces in local and national food outlets in 2016.

Back by Popular Demand

Hellcat Habanero - the Flamin' HellcatsMade from the world’s hottest habanero peppers – red savina peppers – this special edition sauce pays homage to one of Houston, Texas’ longest tenured and hardest working bands the Flamin’ Hellcats.  Our first run of this sauce sold out quickly so keep your eyes out for the return in our hot sauce shop.

The Flamin’ Hellcats were founded in 1992 and gained national notoriety when their song Problems was included in the soundtrack of the 1999 MTV movie Varsity Blues.  As one of our all-time favorite Houston bands this sauce captures their essence with a perfect amount of red hot spice and 101% Vatobilly goodness.

Our XXX Hellcat Habanero hot sauce blends Red Savina and Naga Jolokia peppers with onion, lemon juice, passion fruit juice and garlic pulp to form a powerful sauce, both in flavor and heat! This is no ‘soupy’ hot sauce. Quite to the contrary, our Red Savina is a thick crushed pepper sauce that will stick with you… possibly longer than you had intended!
