New News, y’all

Attention hot sauce lovers!

I know I’ve been away for a while, but I’ve been busting my butt to make product and grow the business. There just hasn’t been a ton of time for blogging, unfortunately.

What’s new…

Peaches & Scream hot sauce has been discontinued. I’m heartbroken, but it was a sound decision: it was my lowest seller in both the retail and wholesale categories. It was time to slim up the product line in an effort to funnel the money into what’s flying.

Goodbye for now, but not forever!

I also discontinued Pineapple Mustard. Same story, yet again. But but but there are still 6 other delicious flavors for you to enjoy:

Hand Grenade Sriracha, Jamberry Sriracha, Electric Lime Hot Sauce, Curry Honey Mustard, Beer Mustard, and Hot Pants Chili Garlic Sauce (only available during the summer online and at the farmer’s market).


I’ve had more time to cook now that I’ve quit the restaurant. Here’s a couple recipes to get you going:

Chicken Green Chili (dairy & gluten free)

1-2 lbs chicken breasts or tenderloins

4 cups chicken broth

1 can white beans (navy, white kidney, northern)

4 hatch or anaheim chilies (medium heat)

1 medium onion, diced

2 tbsp Merfs’ Electric Lime Hot Sauce (or as much as you want, really)

2 tbsp earth balance non butter buttery spreadjuice of one lime

pinch of lime zest

salt + pepper to taste

I put all the ingredients into my crock pot and cooked on low for 6-8 hours. I topped it with cilantro, tortilla strips, and avocado.

Chicken Tikka Masala (dairy + gluten free)

1-2lbs chicken breasts or tenderloins (would be great with tofu or tempeh)

2 cans coconut milk

2 cups water

1 can diced tomatoes with juice

4 oz tomato paste

2 tbsp earth balance spread

1 medium onion, sliced

4 cloves garlic, minced

4 tbsp tikka masala seasoning (available at Savory Spice Shop)

2 tbsp turmeric

1 tbsp paprika

2 dried chilies

pinch red pepper

salt + pepper to taste

Cook chicken however you prefer. Add rest of ingredients to crock pot and turn on high for 3 hours. Add cooked chicken. Top with Merfs’ Hand Grenade Sriracha and a little cilantro. Serve over rice of your choice!


I’m finally done working at a restaurant! We did it! I’m fully supported by Merfs Condiments, and what an incredibly hard, yet rewarding 2.5 years it’s been!

Cheers!!
