Pique Mi Madre

Small batch Puerto Rican hot sauce packs heat in a great-looking bottle


Hand-picked, prepared and packaged in the mountain town of Coamo, Puerto Rico, Pique Mi Madre is the best-looking hot sauce we’ve also enjoyed tasting. The family-owned company uses only the choicest habanero peppers to give Mi Madre its kick, nicely balanced by a short list of preservative-free ingredients grown locally in the lush mountainous environment.


The clear glass bottle displays the large peppers and fresh ingredients that make up the devilish concoction, possibly acting as a warning to the more timid of tasters. For now Mi Madre is only distributed in Puerto Rico, but can be found online through Caribbean Trading for $8 per bottle.
