The Chili Lab’s New Kit Helps You Make Your Own Homemade Hot Sauce with Ease

Craving more heat than your bottled hot sauce provides?

Now there’s an easy way to craft your own. The Chili Lab has teamed up with W&P Design to produce The Homemade Hot Sauce Kit. It gives you everything you need to create two unique hot sauces in your own kitchen.

Thomas Kelly, founder and owner of The Chili Lab says they developed the kit idea about a year and a half ago and it’s been a hit. “People love it,” he said. “They are super excited about how easy it is. We do two blends with two different flavor profiles.”

Those two blends include:

The Forager’s Blend: features guajillo, chipotle, and pequin peppers. The result is a red hot sauce with deep notes of red berries, wood smoke and earth.

The Grove Blend: offers piri piri, anaheim and habanero peppers, which creates a yellow hot sauce with notes of citrus, green herbs and cut grass.

The Homemade Hot Sauce Kit is sold nationwide as well as on The Chili Lab website for $45.

 The Kit Contains:
  • 2 Chili Lab Spice Blends
  • 4 Glass Hot Sauce Bottles with Corks (4 oz)
  • 1 Stainless Steel Funnel
  • 1 Fine Mesh Strainer
Kelly, who has a restaurant background in New York City, began experimenting more with chili when he opened the food truck (and ultimately brick and mortar restaurant) Mexicue. He says he launched The Chili Lab with a line of chili salts and then added a line of infused butters. He’s currently experimenting with new flavor blends to serve as additional individual packs for the hot sauce kit.
“That’s something to watch for by the end of the year,” he said.
