Poblano Pepper SauceMADE BY CO-OP SAUCE IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
Mike, aka the "Sauce Boss," is obsessed with spice and flavor, which explains why he crafts hot pepper sauces with locally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients.
Mike's sauce is blended with young pumpkin seed and yellow tomatoes for a roasty, golden glow. And if you're familiar with poblano pepper, you'll know it's pretty low on the oh-wow-hot scale. The flesh itself is mild, maybe even a little bitter, making it receptive to sweeter elements.
With the help of Chicago-area kids, Co-Op Sauce brews, bottles and sells the sauces to fund their arts education program, Co-Op Image.
