How can you not love that label? One glance at that angry little guy and this bottle was headed straight into my shopping cart. Turns out that was a good choice. First up, a little about the company. Yellowbird Foods are an Austin Texas based company and currently have a line of five hot sauces. All of their sauces share a similar production ethic that focuses on flavor and health. As afar as I can tell this loosely translates into reduced artificial ingredients in the bottle and a commitment to working with local producers to create the final products. It also creates a mighty fine hot sauce if I may say so myself. And I do.
Taste wise this is slightly sweet with bags of vegetal flavor. It has a medium amount of zest and heat. You’re not going to recoil winching at either the tartness or the heat. Well, I assume if you’ve picked this bottle up, you’re at least comfortable with a Serrano level heat that is! You’re either a hot sauce lover to you’re not, and you know if you are…
I can’t imagine a dish that wouldn’t benefit from a splash of this very well balanced sauce. All the old hot sauce tropes fit well here: eggs, tacos, pizza etc. I’d as happily use some as a way to brighten up a sandwich as I would to dip French fries in. One particular unique use for this sauce that immediately comes to my mind, would be to help brighten up some basic guacamole. The green-vegetal notes of the hot sauce’s flavor would blend well with rich creamy avocado I think. Similarly it would go well in a dressing for green salads too.
This is a definite Smart Buy in my book!

True to their words, the ingredient list is happily sparse. There’s no filler here or random garbage; as you read the ingredient list it’s clear each ingredient is simple and necessary.

Where Can I buy Yellowbird Serrano Condiment
So far I’ve found this in Whole Foods, your local store may also carry this. I paid $7.99 for the pictured large bottle 20 ounce bottle – which is a great price in my book. If your local Whole Foods doesn’t yet stock this or you don’t have access to one, Yellowbird also have an online store too: https://yellowbirdsauce.com/shop/
