El Perro Afortunado, affectionately referred to as "Taco Dog", is a throwback to the zesty picante sauces creator Scott Zalkind grew up with. And as of August, 2021, this sauce has been reformulated from the ground up to be more savory, more complex, & feature fresh Pasilla peppers & cook-in-bottle roasted garlic.
Please note: There are currently 2 versions of El Perro Afortunado. One is the normal recipe, and another is closer to a "Hot" than a "medium" - the latter version has a bit more of a ghost pepper kick than anticipated. There is a drop-down menu to choose which version you'd prefer.
Now better than ever, this layered salsa picante incorporates fire-roasted tomato with a 5-pepper blend of Pasilla, Cayenne, new Mexico Red, Ghost, black pepper with sweet smoked Spanish paprika, garlic, onion, cumin, orange & lime juices, to create a balanced and versatile Mexican table sauce that's good on just about everything.
While this sauce is especially compatible eggs, Mexican food & pizza, it's also great for sandwiches & seafood, or as an ingredient in guacamole or soups & stews. Fantastic in a Bloody Mary, too!
El Perro Afortunado, "The Fortunate Dog" is certain to be your food's new best friend!
