Peppers at the Beach- Guapo Roundtable Review
I recently bought Guapo’s Authentic Mexican Sauce at my local Whole Food Store. I bought it almost as a gag gift to give to Doug Spiros from www.peppersandmore.com on our meeting in New Jersey over a month ago. Unfortunately that meeting never took place, so I held onto it for our get together at Peppers at the Beach. It inspired us to do an on the spot review after we were relaxing after dinner.
Not only did I enjoy filming this review segment, but I think we found a product that will be talked about for some time. Please check this one out when you get a chance, and maybe it will inspire you to go find yourself some to answer the question we could not agree on, “What do you think it would be good on?”
Our round table consists of Doug and son Tom, Tom Slosser of Tom’s Roid-Rippin’ Hot Sauce, Neil and John from Fat Kid Sauces, and myself.
This is taken right from their website:
“Guapo sauce is a traditional central Mexican dipping sauce. Its distinctive flavor comes from the combination of garlic and chili peppers. Our sauce is made in small batches from only the finest quality ingredients in order to maintain its authentic flavor. Guapo is a 100% natural Vegan product free of artificial preservatives, flavors, colors, has zero trans fat, and is Gluten and Sugar Free. Enjoy Guapo sauce on chicken, steak, pizza, veggies, and more.
guapo [‘gwapo] adj 1 attractive 2 boastful 3 brave, daring 4 bold, fierce 5 smart.”

tried this at Joe and Linda’s over the weekend and thought it was quite tasty. Rould be good on a ham and swiss sammich for sure.
So no one knows what to put it on? I’ll have to get a jar right away…lol
Sounds like everyone was having a good time! :_toastbeer:
LOL – we sound like a bunch of old wash women. Definitely a unique taste.
now I can’t get the movie The Three Amigos out of my head – El Guapo
great time…. :_redpepper: :_redpepper: :_dancingdevil:
OMG…drunkmuthafuckas….Buddah, let ’em taaaallllk. LOL…Put it om a beer soaked brat…enough!
Huv, you are right about the Canola Oil, right up front and interferes with the enjoyment of the other flavors. I can agree with Doug, BLT is the best way to go.
Is it worth buying or not???
The good people of Guapo are sending me some more, so the next time you are over I will give you some to try and you can decide for yourself.
The question I would like answered is, how is it on traditional Mexican food since it’s called a “Mexican Sauce”?
Peppers got the Blairs “Peppers on the Beach” collectibles in today. Only 13 of ”em…
Yes, but they promised them away immediately…in fact “over-promised” them….
Sandy from Peppers called me today, said Blair actually had to re-make them for some reason, and when doing so, went ahead and made 24 of them. She offered me one…I got #7 – if anybody wants one, they better call Sandy today!!
Hola Senores y Senoritas:
We are very happy that you got to try Guapo Sauce at the round table with all the experts. I would recommend to try Guapo Sauce with grilled chicken, or pizza (original intent for it), fish tacos, etc. Guapo doesnt have any dary nor gluten, it is 100% all natural and vegan. Let us know what elso have you tried it with, thanks.

Would you buy it again?
I wcalled, but $300 is a bit too much for me
yeah, I know…I have a habit to support…I’m a bit obsessed!
Is there a pic attached? All I see is a red x.
I thought the same about the first caldera. Glad I bought a couple.
Hey! There was going to be a pic but it didn’t load- will work on that…. yeah Guapo is creamy from the process of blending the chili peppers and garlic with some canola oil. But there is zero dairy! No eggs, mayo, nothing! It’s also great as a marinade and for chicken wings, ribs, and other snack foods!
I all ready have and brought it with me to Ohio.
Thanks for coming by Guapo! A nice little product you got there. I wish you much success, and hope that come to a show some time down the road.
Traditionally used to accompany meats (carnes asadas). As a kind of steak sauce, it is also veru good on quesadillas, whether you belive it or not, in mexico one of the most popular items to use Guapo on is Pizza (not in the sauce, but a little ontop like crushed red pepper is used here.
Excellent. Thanks for the tips!
That was an awesome weekend!
I would definitely put it on a Rubens or a Corned Beef & Rye. I think it would be a nice sauce
over some freshly steamed Cauliflower, too. I’d like to get a jar and try it out as an ingredient in my home-made sauerkraut and bratwurst. I can see it adding a new twist to some German cuisine.
It is awesome if you mix it in with potoato pancakes 🙂 Give it a try!!
