When it comes to cookouts I like to prepare easy and refreshing recipes.Today I want to share my recipe for a colorful chickpea salad; perfect for any outdoor activity. its very refreshing and very light! The original recipe calls for Jalapeño peppers but I found a condiment that gives my salad extra flavor: El Yucateco® Green Habanero Hot sauce! which is made with fresh green habanero peppers, garlic, select spices and seasonings. You can also add El Yucateco® Red Habanero Hot sauce, this one is made with red habanero peppers, tomato, and select spices and seasonings; another flavor that you can use is El Yucateco® Black Label Reserve Hot Sauce–Created from fire roasted habanero’s, this rich smoky sauce stands out from all others with its unique flavor and appearance. For this recipe I prefer the green habanero sauce since it packs a little more heat than the red habanero but it has less vinegar than the average hot sauce.
