Marinade / Finishing Sauce: World Harbors Mexican Style Fajita Sauce
I talked about the World Harbors line when I covered their Sweet 'n Sour Sauce a few weeks back. This week, I'm taking a look at their Mexican Style Fajita Sauce and Marinade.
FLAVOR - Heavy sweetness, followed by a substantial dose of cumin and chili powder and rounded out with a mild vinegar kick
CONSISTENCY - Mild to medium thickness with a smooth pour, grainy (from spices) on tongue
APPEARANCE - Rust brown, with flecks of green, brown and white spices
SMELL - Sugary vinegar, with an earthy chili undertone
AVAILABILITY - Readily available
INGREDIENTS - Water, HFCS, vinegar, modified food starch, sea salt, lemon juice concentrate, dried garlic, spices, canola oil, xanthan gum, natural flavors, jalapeno peppers, potassium sorbate & sodium benzoate (as preservatives), soy lecithin
I primarily use this fajita sauce on enchiladas, burritos and the occasional taco. Actually, just about the only thing I haven't juiced with it are fajitas (but I'm sure they would be great). Like most World Harbors sauces, the fajita sauce contains vinegar, so it can be used as a marinade.
Note: I'm also very impressed with the label's artistic rendering of what must be Mexico.
