Playing with the base ingredients of a fry sauce or a Russian dressing, Oaxacan Mole becomes the focal point in this savory and spicy combination creating Oaxacan Secret Sauce.
This recipe incorporates beer via a new hot sauce, Nor Cal Mole, which uses Oatmeal Stout from Anderson Valley Brewing Company as a base for building flavor. Imagine an ingredient that easily adds distinctive, historical, and multifaceted flavors. The hot sauce uses the hottest chili in the world, the Carolina Reaper, which is cooled off with habanero, poblano, and ancho chilies. Orange, tangerine, lime, and calamansi juices round out the acid, along with malt vinegar, stout malt syrup, and mole-inspired spices. Ultimately, this Eat Beer Hot Sauce – Nor Cal Mole acts as a seasoning, increasing the heat and boosting Mexican umami in each dish it’s used in.
