Welcoming Back our Habanero Mango Hot Sauce with two great recipes

We love hearing ideas from our guests and read through all of the comments submitted each month and use those comments to better our product assortment and flavors.  Recently, we discontinued our Habanero Mango Hot Sauce, and after several customer requests and pleads, we decided it was time to bring it back!  In fact, one guest was so determined to have us bring back his beloved sauce that he was willing to "name my next child 'Stonewall' or maybe 'Stoney'...donate an organ to science, but not one related to a good person from now on" - Lance R.  Lance got the chance to visit our factory for the first production run of the Habanero Mango Hot Sauce and got the first case off the line!

Since the relaunch of this customer favorite, we have posted a few of our favorite uses for the sauce on our site.  Here are two of our favorite recipes using our Habanero Mango Hot Sauce - both are great for a summertime barbecue!

Spicy Habanero Shrimp

  1. Marinate 1-1/2 pounds of peeled deveined raw shrimp in 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. Stonewall Kitchen Habanero Mango Hot Sauce for at least 2 hours.
  2. Skewer the shrimp and grill 1-2 minutes on each side until just cooked through, but still tender
  3. Squeeze a little lime juice over the shrimp and garnish with gently torn cilantro leaves.  Serve over your favorite rice dish.

Tri Colored Pasta Salad

  • 12 ounces tri-colored rotini pasta
  • 1/2 cup light olive or canola oil
  • 6 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1-1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 teaspoons Stonewall Kitchen Habanero Mango Hot Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped (or 2 teaspoons dried basil)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, coarsely grated
  1. Bring 4 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large pot.  Add broccoli and boil 3 minutes until tender/crisp.  Remove broccoli and place immediately in an ice water bath to cool.  Drain and set aside.
  2. Add pasta to the boil water and cook according to package directions.  Drain and let cool.
  3. In a large bowl add the oil, red wine vinegar, 1-1 1/2 teaspoons salt, garlic and Stonewall Kitchen Habanero Mango Hot Sauce, whisk until combined.  Add the cooled cooked pasta, basil, parsley, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and broccoli and toss.
