“Feel Alive!” Blair’s famous motto. If you like burning alive, I promise that you will love this atomic bomb. Anyhow the hotness doesn’t hit you immediately. First, it spreads in your mouth, then when you swallow it, that’s the moment you FEEL ALIVE! Your neck will burn and then your nose will join. When you see the Scoville Scale, it all makes sense. It is 550.000!! As a chef, I have tried many hot sauces at my home and restaurant. You can always find a recipe for Sriracha Sauce but what about this deadly Blair’s Mega Death Sauce? To be honest, we couldn’t find any recipe, it really is not that easy… And then it has popped into our minds “Let’s create a homemade recipe and research this friend.”
Having a Look at Blair’s Mega Death Sauce
Blair’s Mega Death Sauce does not contain any fat, carbohydrate, or protein. Since this sauce does not contain any fat it also doesn’t contain any calories from fat. It does contain 105 mg of sodium and Vitamin C ( %4).
The bottle definitely says “I will burn you” with its skull. When you taste it your eyes will be the same as the skull’s eyes. You will see the planets and stars. The ingredient list of Blair’s Mega Death Sauce consists of Habanero Chillies, Cayenne Chillies, Ancho Chilies, Chipotle Chilies, Natural Chilli Extract (contains soybean oil), Vinegar, Salt, Molasses, Water, Fresh Ginger, Guava Puree, Onion, Corn Starch (modified), Xanthan Gum, Spices, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). I want to talk about something about this product.
Normally when you taste or smell like this kind of hot sauces, you can’t always find any dept because of the hotness. As I said the Scoville Scale is 550.00. That means it should conquer your mouth and feelings with fire. But it doesn’t completely. When you open the bottle you can actually smell the ginger. Molasses momentarily masks the dominant habanero, cayenne, and chipotle and then they come together. Molasses, fresh Guava, and the sweet side of Habanero Peppers shine together and the ginger -some say that the ginger flavor is too strong in the original recipe but when it’s diluted, all the flavors sit- brings everything up to a new level.
Our shining fire lord is Natural Chilli Extract. This ingredient is the main reason for your burning throat. This sauce is over 100 times hotter than Jalapeno pepper. So we recommend that you should use this product diluted. Flavor-wise; If you dilute Blair’s Mega Death Sauce with some tomato paste or any other tropical fruit paste and add some fresh herbs at the end of your cooking, YOUR DISH WILL GO SOME OTHER LEVEL BECAUSE OF THE UMAMI FLAVOR! I will give you some Kitchen 101 Tips on my “RECIPES” part.

Homemade Mega Death Sauce Recipe
Since we could not find the exact recipe we just created our homemade version. Let’s see what are the ingredients for our sauce.
|Peppers (Habanero, Cayenne, Ancho, Chipotle||3Kg|
|Ginger (Grated)||15 Grams|
|Spices (Coriander Seeds, Mustard Seeds, Cumin Seeds)||1Tbsp each|
|Lime Juice (Optional)||–|
|Lime Zest (Optional)||–|
- Get all the ingredients in a pot and heat it up until the liquid comes to a boil. Turn off the heat and let it sit for about 2 or 3 minutes. Make sure that the temperature does not go below 70 degrees Celsius.
- Put the mixture into a food processor and blend it until it gets a silky smooth texture.
- Transfer puree into a large container. Cover container with plastic wrap or some lid and place into a cool dark location for about 3 to 5 days. Stirring once a day. In this way, we will get fermentation. When you see bubbles on the surface, just be happy, we are getting close.
- You can use your Mega Death Sauce right away or you can also strain your sauce through a fine-mesh strainer. Thereby you will get rid of the pulp.
- Check the seasoning, consistency, and flavor. Transfer your sauce to jars or bottles and refrigerate.
I am a huge fan of smoky flavor therefore I will recommend this. You can also smoke your peppers at your home easily. I mean if you have a wood-fire oven or cold smoke gun it’s wonderful but actually, there is no need for that. You just need to fire up your stove and cook/smoke your peppers on the open fire and then continue your process.
The original recipe does not contain lime juice or zest. But if you add lime zest besides lime juice it will give the sauce more elegant freshness, citrus flavor, and smell.
