My first experience with June’s featured food find was several years ago. My husband and I were laying in bed watching Food Network, and the television show Food Finds was on (you can watch the clip here). They were featuring Mike & Diane’s Kitchen & their high quality hot sauce, Ring of Fire. My husband is sort of a hot sauce connoisseur, and he was instantly drawn to it. We placed an order almost immediately, and it was an instant addiction. I’m not even that much of a hot sauce person, but this stuff is something special. I simply can’t be without it. The texture is actually more similar to a salsa than a typical hot sauce too. Perfect salsa, and perfect hot sauce – all wrapped up in one.
And yes, it’s hot. But the flavors are so fresh & flavorful that it’s hard to stop eating it. I often just pour a small dipping bowl of it & go to town with some tortilla chips. Plus, there are other flavors offered that aren’t as hot as others. Original is my personal favorite.
Oh, and if you’re a jerky fan – their jerky is the best!!
Ring of Fire is ran by a husband and wife duo out of southern California – Mike and Diane. I have had the pleasure of speaking to Mike on several occasions, and gushed over how much I love their sauces. So, when I decided that I wanted to share my love for this product as this month’s featured food find, I sent Mike a message to let him know – and asked if he might want to host a giveaway with me. Not only did he say yes, but he has offered up a yummy 2-pack of Ring of Fire sauces for grabs to the lucky winner!
