El Yucateco Hot Sauce Giveaway...Featuring Caliente Frito Pie Deluxe #SauceOn #CollectiveBias

Disclosure: This shop and giveaway has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its Advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.
I recently discovered a new-to-me a habanero hot sauce that lets me #SauceOn to bring a burst of spicy heat to many of my favorite recipes. El YucatecoHot Sauce is made in Mexico and comes in four different spicy varieties: Red Habanero Sauce, Green Habanero Sauce, XXXtra Hot Kutbil-ik Sauce, and Black Label Reserve -- their newest flavor! Thanks to #CollectiveBias, I recently learned that all four flavors of El Yucateco hot sauce can be found in the Hispanic Foods aisle at Walmart. 
If you've shied away from hot sauces made with habanero peppers in the past because you feared that they'd be TOO hot...don't! I found the El Yucateco Chile Habanero sauces very tasty. They definitely pack a fiery kick -- especially straight from the bottle -- but they also have lots of flavor. When added as a recipe ingredient, they bring a smooth heat...more of a slow burn than in-your-face fire. For example, I used the Black Label Reserve hot sauce to amp up a comfort classic: Caliente Frito Pie Deluxe. Let me show you how I took a gameday classic and gave it a grown-up twist.

Caliente Frito Pie Deluxe
a Weekend Gourmet Original
Ingredients (for one serving):
  • 1 cup Fritos corn chips
  • 3/4 cup of your favorite chili
  • El Yucateco Black Label Reserve hot sauce to taste -- I used 1/2 tsp.
  • 1/2 cup shredded colby-cheddar cheese
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1/4 Roma tomato, diced
  • 1/4 avocado, diced
  • 2 tbs. sour cream mixed with 2 drops El Yucateco Black Label Reserved hot sauce
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375. Place the corn chips in an oven-safe crock or serving bowl. Heat the chili, stir in the El Yucateco Black Label Reserve hot sauce, and pour over the chips. Top with the shredded cheddar. Bake at 375 until the cheese is melted -- about 5 minutes.
Step 2: While the cheese is melting, mix the sour cream with 2 drops El Yucateco Black Label reserve. Spoon the sour cream in the middle of the cooked Frito pie. Sprinkle the green onion, avocado, and tomatoes on top. Eat immediately, while the chips are still crunchy.
That's it! In about 15 minutes, you can have a spicy deluxe version of plain 'ol Frito pie. The El Yucateco hot sauce definitely upped the spice factor of the chili, but the sour cream and avocado cooled each bite off very nicely. For those who really love their food spicy, additional El Yucateco can be sprinkled on top of their Frito pie. I enjoyed this fancier version of Frito pie much more than the traditional version I usually make. To make this dish for a crowd, simply multiply the ingredients by 4 and bake in a casserole dish.
