The bottles were shipped in a bright red box protected by a bubble mailer to ensure that everything stayed in tact during transit.
A peek inside!
An info card listed all of the sauces, as well as a little background info on each one and suggestions on how to best enjoy them.
El Perro Afortunado AKA “Taco Dog” is a versatile Mexican table sauce made with fire-roasted tomatoes, a 4-pepper blend of black pepper, ghost pepper, pasilla & cayenne pepper, along with sweet Spanish smoked paprika, garlic, onion, cumin & lime. This is a new offering from Lucky Dog that Fuego Box subscribers are among the first to try! Enjoy it on pizza, breakfast burritos, wraps, roasted potatoes, or any kind of Mexican dish.
A traditional green verde sauce with a fire roasted kick of green super hot chiles. The heat of the aforementioned chiles is tamed slightly by the flavorful additions of cilantro, lime and tomatillo. This sauce is ideal for sandwiches, pork, fish, grilled chicken, eggs, guacamole, and more.
L.B.I. Love Potion Extra Garlic
Unfortunately for my husband, I’m a big fan of garlic. 😉 L.B.I.’s “Love Potion” Extra Garlic was originally created and given out as wedding favors by the co-founders at their 2013 Long Island Beach, NJ wedding. Clearly, it went over well. Along with plenty of garlic, this also features aged red habaneros, carrots, onions, and other all natural ingredients. Enjoy it with eggs, fried foods, pizza, cocktail sauces, and even added to pasta sauces for an extra kick.
