Fuego Box is a monthly hot sauce subscription box that brings the heat without being extreme, focusing instead on the flavors (while still, of course, being hot – just without added heat extracts and the like). They search out the best flavors to go with every type of food and discover new artisan hot sauce makers to bring to your door. Your first monthly box will be an introductory box (see our review of the Fuego Box intro box), with a tasting journal and two favorite hot sauces from Fuego Box. Subsequent boxes include 3 full-sized artisan-made hot sauces like this box.
Fuego Box has pretty cool packaging that is efficiently and specifically designed for shipping sauce and is in a cushioned pack.
All three bottles together!

Fuego Box changed up the description card and actually made it into 3 bookmark style cards. This could work well for a recipe book, especially if one of these sauces fits the dish just right. These aren’t just descriptions as they also have suggestions for what food to add the sauce to.
I generally taste the sauces on a corn chip but that doesn’t always do the hot sauce justice. I feel like this sauce would pair better with an entree. I would lean toward trying this on some sort of pork. Either a pulled pork or maybe even a breakfast slice of ham.
Isabel Cilantro Lime Serrano – $6.90
The description is always nice and informative.
The sauce is a bit more runny than expected. It’s also not as hot as I thought it would be. I buy fresh Serrano peppers and they are quite spicy. This sauce would be nice on eggs, especially if you are looking to add flavor more than heat. I like the idea on the description card of whisking it in some olive oil and making a salad dressing.
Hotter than El “24k Gold” – $5.99
I know I said it before, but I really like the separate description cards.
I wasn’t sure what to think of this sauce but as just a bit of time passed, I felt the inside of my mouth getting warmer. 24k Gold will be a nice addition to many different dishes. I may need to experiment with chicken or put it on top of a home made pizza.
Fuego Box remains one of the best ways have excellent sauces delivered to your home. The price is on par with specialty shops and vendors (the only other place you’d find this variety of high-grade sauce).
