Three 2 ounce bottles of Queen Majesty's flavorful and unique hot sauces for you to sample!
Jalapeño Tequila & Lime Hot Sauce: balances a refreshing flavor with a satisfying heat. This original recipe combines the incredibly complimentary flavors of fresh green jalapeños, silver agave tequila and ripe lime juice with added crisp green apple for an additional sweetness and whole garlic cloves for depth of flavor. This everyday sauce works perfectly on dishes like grilled seafood, tacos, potatoes, egg sandwiches and more.
Scotch Bonnet & Ginger: 🔥 HOT ONES SEASON 4 🔥 has a vibrant flavor and a slow-burning heat. The brightness of the ginger and lemon work perfectly to spice up soups and curries or mix a little with honey and use for sweet potatoes or wings.
Red Habanero & Black Coffee: 🔥 HOT ONES SEASON 3 🔥 combines an exciting flavor with a sensational heat, with more than twice the amount of hot peppers than the Scotch Bonnet & Ginger Sauce. There won't be an overwhelming coffee flavor but what it does add is a nice smoky darkness that stands up to the intense flavor of the red habaneros. This sauce works great with rich foods like pasta and pizza. Try mixing it with ketchup or mayo for fries and burgers.
"These seeds are for my first attempt at gardening chiles in my backyard. I'm SUPER excited. A friend of mine in Houston says the Lemon Spice jalapeños are his favorite."
"High quality seeds that produce healthy plants and disease-free fruit."
The Chile Pepper Institute Teaching Garden
The Chile Pepper Institute (CPI) is the only international organization devoted to education, research and information related to chile peppers.
The Institute was established at New Mexico State University in 1992 as the place for chile aficionados to find answers to "all things chile pepper."
New Mexico State University is also the place where chile pepper research has been ongoing since Dr. Fabián García began standardizing chile pepper varieties in 1888. Dr. García is widely considered to be the father of the U.S. Mexican food industry.
Chile pepper research is conducted at the Fabián García Horticultural Science Center, where the Chile Pepper Institute also maintains the Amy Goldman Fowler Teaching Garden. Every summer and fall visitors can find more than 150 varieties of chile peppers growing here.
We are located on the campus of New Mexico State University.
