Constantina Maria Diego Margarita Booker, better known as Mrs. S.F. Booker, had decided that she needed to take her drunk’n husband, San Filippo, to cooler climates in the summer. Exiting the oppressive Arizona heat, they hopped in their pickup and headed south to what would be an annual pilgrimage to Baja California and the beaches of Rosarito and Ensenada, Mexico. San Filippo was persuaded to go on the premise of milder temps and a Cantina on every corner.
Well, “CM” had lots of free time while San Filippo caroused Blvd. Benito Juarez, bouncing from Tequila watering hole to Tequila watering hole. She actually became enamored with the local cuisine, coupled with their frequent use of Chipotle (a smoked/dried Jalapeno) Pepper. Putting all that free time to good use, she started experimenting with a hot sauce made of this popular pepper. Splitting her time between cooking the onions, garlic, peppers and seasonings, and blending Margaritas, things were starting to come together.
Late one afternoon, with the hot sauce concoction cooling on the kitchen counter, San Filippo staggered through the front door and immediately proceeded to the liquor cabinet. He poured himself a snifter of Mezcal, as if he’d just come home from a hard day of work. Sprinkling a hefty amount of sea salt on his forearm, he performed the age old Mexican tradition. But this time he got a little sloppy, spilling part of the salt and spraying some of the lime into the culinary “experiment.”
Well…in an instant CM back-hand bitch-slapped San Filippo to the ground and rushed to the pot of hot sauce, to taste it and see if the extra additions had tampered with it in any way. A smile arose on her face as the missing ingredients were a perfect compliment and the recipe was deemed as ready for consumption. And that’s how Constantina Maria Chipotle Hot Sauce was created!
As always, Midgets Fishing Brewery is oh so proud to bring this hot sauce to your table. Enjoy!
