Here are some pretty Mild pepper sauces that I've tried. They top out at about 20,000 scoville units which is hotter than a bottle of Tabasco sauce but most are less than that. These hot sauces wont burn your butt the next morning since they focus on providing a great taste.

You need to use then in higher dosages!

Super Mild (1 pepper)

Boston Red Sox Hot Sauce
Slightly spicier than plain water, but not by much.

Cape Fear Hot Sauce
By CP Specialty Foods, Inc. It claims to be Deadly Hot, Near Death Rating. Although it is very tasty, it is far from hot.

Cholula Hot Sauce (3,600 scoville units)
Jalasco Food Company produces this one. It doesn't make any claims. At least they're honest. Made with pequin and red peppers. Visit their site

Dat'l Do-It Devil Drops
One of the best tasting sauces. It failed to Rap me a good one right in the mouth like it promised. Visit their site

Melinda's Original Habanero Pepper Sauce (1,920 scoville units)
Although it says habanero on the label doesn't mean it is hot. Guess you can't believe everything you read! Visit their site

Tejas Gourmet Smoking Toncils Hot Pepper Sauce
From Brazos Country Foods, it warns you to Use in small quantities. Why? This was a great tasting sauce but it certainly didn't smoke my toncils!

XXX Habanero Pepper Sauce
This Dessert Pepper Trading Company sauce is labeled as Very Hot. Not even mild!

Queen of Farts Hot Sauce
by CA Johns Fiery Foods has an awesome taste if you like the flavor of curry which I love. Their label says it best: "Cut the cheese and kick it up with this famous state of the fart hot sauce! A perfect blend of tropical fruit, curry and just a few habanero peppers - gentle heat, enjoyable for everyone." God save the Queen.

The Reaper Hot Sauce
This sauce is a nice and tasty one but doesn't live up to its name or its slogan "So friggin' hot you'll wish you were dead!!!". I used a quarter of a bottle on a chili dog and still didn't feel any heat. But it does have a good taste. It is made from habaneros and scotch bonnets so you would think it would have more bite. Visit their site.

The Cheech Hot Sauces
From Cheech Marin of Cheech and Chong fame. Cheech has his own line of sauces. See www.thecheech.com for his various products. Briefly, his Mojo Mango is a puree of mangoes and habanero sauce. The mango flavor is overpowering and there is no trace of the habaneros - either in taste or heat. Cheech's Gnarly Garic Habanero Sauce tastes like salad dressing with no discernable heat. The best is the Smokin Chipotle sauce, that is if you like a strong smoke flavor.

Arizona Gunslinger Smokin' Hot Jalapeno Pepper Sauce
Made from jalapeno peppers so you know it's not very hot. Its tasty and would go well with wings, burgers,... Check it out from Arizona Pepper Products. www.azgunslinger.com.

IGUANA XXX Habanero Pepper Sauce
"Pretty damn hot" says the label but despite being a tasty sauce that would go well on just about anything it is not an "8.2 on Richter scale". This "All killer - no filler" sauce is from Half Moon Bay Trading Company.

Sir Fartalot's Hot Sauce
is the cousin of Queen of Farts from Ca Johns Fiery Foods. This is a green Jalapeno based sauce instead of a habanero sauce. As such it is pretty mild. Something about the taste, maybe the vinegar, turns me off.

Scorned Woman Mustard/Scorned Woman Salsa
These products have the same distinctive taste as Scorned Woman Hot Sauce. The mustard makes a great spread for sandwiches, hot dogs,.... It is slightly spicy but not as hot as Dave's Insanity Mustard. Same with the salsa, it's not nearly as hot as Dave's insanity Salsa. Both products are very tasty. "Hell hath no fury like a scorned woman."

Bada Bing Bada Boom Probable Cause Habanero Hot Sauce
So... you think you're safe? Fagetaboutit! This hot sauce doesn't knock or ring the bell. It kicks down the door to your taste buds with intent to provide fiery habanero heat. If the police are at your door, and bland food is your accomplice, they don't need a warrant to search for flavor. They have probable cause!  stores.badabingsauce.com

Mildly Mild  (2 peppers)

Ass Kickin Hot Sauce
Slightly spicier than plain water, but not by much. From Southwest Specialty Foods, the Spontaneous Combustion people. Unlike Spontaneous Combustion, this sauce will not kick your ass. Visit their site

Captain Mowatt's Canceaux Sauce
This sauce, by W.O. Hesperus Company, is made from red chills and has a great taste. Visit their site

Chipotle Mexican Hot Sauce
This sauce claims to be Mexico's #1 hot sauce for 60 years. It also claims to be VERY HOT. I say it is very very mild. Their Buffalo version has a very different smoked flavor that I really like.

Habanero Hot Sauce From Hell (3,200 scoville units)
Says it is The World's Hottest Hot Sauce. Hmmm, seems like a pretty bold claim. Dave's Insanity says its "the Hottest Sauce in the Universe" and once you try it you will probably agree. No similarities here. Good Southwestern taste but it doesn't live up to its motto.

Sultans of Sizzle
The Sultans of Sizzle from Original Juan Specialty Foods are some of the best tasting sauces I have had. This boxed set include three great sauces: Batch #37 Garlic Hot Sauce, Batch #114 Jamaican Style Hot Sauce and Batch #218 Louisiana Style Hot Sauce. They are not hot but they have an awesome taste. "There is a point where pleasure and pain intersect. A doorway to a new dimension of sensual euphoria. Where fire both burns and soothes. Where heat engulfs every neuron within you. Once the line is crossed, once the bottle is opened, once it touches your lips, there is no going back! PAIN IS GOOD!"

Sultans of Sizzle hot sauce


Mad Cat Hot Sauce
This "Not for pussy cats" sauce is a habanero based sauce from Ashley Foods, the makers of Mad Dog Inferno Sauce. Unlike Mad Dog and despite its "Eat this sauce and you'll wish you had nine lives. It's the only hot sauce that leaves you scratching" label, it has no bite at all. The taste is OK but not great. "Warning, this hot sauce is one cat you don't want to mess with" - NOT.

Tabasco Brand Pepper Sauce (4,500 scoville units)

McIlhenny's Tobasco Brand Pepper Sauce

The old standby. A good tasting sauce for use on just about everything. Unlike most people, I like its vinegar taste. Pretty basic ingredients: pepper, salt and vinegar. I rate it as slightly above mild.

Serving size: one 2 ounce bottle per bowl of chili. That's how a friend of mine and I used to do it.

Don't bother with their Jalapeno sauce. However, I like McIlhenny's Habanero sauce. I rank it as slightly more than mild but I love its taste.

Walkersword Hot Jamaican Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce
Maybe the Scotch think its hot.

Almost Spicy  (3 peppers)

Mountain Man
It is refreshing once in a while to go for a good tasting sauce instead of a super hot one! Mountain Man tastes great due to its fire roasted habanero flavor. Its other ingredients include vinegar and salt. Nice taste, mild heat. You can use this sauce on just about anything. From Catskill Mountains Specialty Inc. 1-800-311-fire.

Professor Payne Indeass's Butt Blazin Recipe #6 Butt Pucker XX Hot Sauce
Great taste with a mild burn. This cayenne pepper sauce can be used on just about anything when you want to spice it up a bit. From Sauce Crafters - Florida.

Butt Twister Butt-Blazin' Fire Sauce
from Ca John's Fiery Foods is a combination of great taste and a nice burn. After eating a half dozen Tostitos Scoops filled to the brim with this sauce my lips were left tingling. "This scorcher will blow you away" - well, it may not be intense searing heat but it's a good all around sauce.

The Legend Red Savina Habanero Puree - Vintage 2002 (20,000 scoville units)
from Ca John's Fiery Foods The Legend comes in a real cool looking wooden cylindrical balsa wood box. Only a limited number of bottles are produced each year with the vintage marked on the bottle's label. 2002 brought a severe draught which stressed the habanero plants resulting in superior heat but less sweetness than the prior year. If you have ever eaten a fresh habanero pepper or blended them to a puree, that's what this sauce tastes like.

When you think its too hot, make it hotter!
