Testimonials

From:  Pat, July 2010I just recently found out that I’m diabetic and I am so excited about your products.  They are healthy with very little sugar and low carbs.  I just had Smokey Red Sensation on a little couscous, broccoli and green beans.  It was fantastic and makes me a little more positive about my food options in the future.   It turned a boring lunch into a fantastic one.  Thanks for making such great products!

Sure enough, my wife & I both put separate orders in today. I think it reflects more of the priority we place on keeping your excellent product on hand than any real lack of spousal communication. When we run out,the reorder has to go in immediately !
We’ve been customers for about 3 years now. I think I read about you guys first in a New York Times “Dining” section article. Since then, we’re good for 6 bottles a year plus some salsa every now & then. My opinion-your sauces & salsas have great flavors with the highest quality.
Thanks again for such a great product !

Fantastic Weight Watcher Idea

To: Chipotlepeople
“I just tried the Black Bean Fiesta. My intention was to put it on a chicken sandwich — very gourmet — a boneless, skinless chicken breast grilled on pita bread (Weight Watcher’s favorite). I tasted it before it made it to the sandwich. I could have eaten the entire jar but I exercised some judgement and put it on the sandwich. It added about 20 calories to the sandwich — no weight watcher’s points — and completely changed the way I think about chicken sandwiches. We’re talking flavor. Absolutely delicious. I think Christina must be responsible for that recipe!”

COMMENTS: I have never done this before but I am writing to tell you how much your Sweet Heat Addiction means to my family.I have two 5 year old boys who have multiple allergies to things such as corn, corn starch, wheat, soy, rye, (basically all grains) all nuts, bananas, strawberries, coconut, shrimp and the list goes on. Needless to say, shopping is a nighmare. 99% of the food on the grocery shelves we cannot eat. So I was pleasantly surprised when I found your product. It immediately became a
hit in my house. Okay, there is garlic in it and we do have allergies to it but hey that is one of the not severe ones. Anyway, you have improved how our family eats and have added some wonderful flavor to our table.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.SincerelyCheryl / Visalia, CATHANKS CHERYL

Finally a chipotle product that features chipotle!
  Thanks for your new sauce. I have been disappointed with chipotle sauce offerings to date. Chipotle is typically buried deep in the ingredient listing. Your product bests all of the award winners that I have tasted.
  Margee, San Diego, CA

Praise from a hot sauce junkie
  When I was 4, my father told me that a jalapeno was a pickle! That started me on a lifelong enjoyment of peppers. This is by far the best chipotle offering that I have tasted. The heat is very satisfying and the chipotle flavor is great. It’s versatility is amazing. We’ve tried it on everything but ice cream and we’re not ruling that out!
  Cheryl / Lake Arrowhead, CA

The Art of Chipotle Fan
  The Art of Chipotle has become a staple when we entertain. We have served it on cream cheese and with shrimp for appetizers, used it as a finishing sauce on ribs and chicken, and often add it to soups or salad dressing. We have even added it to our favorite salsa. Now we have a new favorite salsa!

AOC Sauces Convert Fire Eater
  As a Texan, I have gone thru stages of trying to ingest the hottest sauces around. Now I find myself gravitating to taste vs. pain and your sauces are extreme taste.

Illegal Brew?
  This stuff is addictive! Are you sure it’s legal?
  Dan/La Mesa, CA

Praise!
  I am a sauce manufacturer myself. Not only have I made many different kinds of sauce, I have tasted hundreds. AOC sauces are top notch. The quality is immediately evident in the appearance, but even that doesn’t prepare one for the splendid tastes of these sauces. Thank you for your work in putting this finely crafted sauce on my store shelves! Keep up the outstanding work!

Crazzberry Crazy in Las Vegas
  My friend introduced me to you & your wonderful chipotle “juice” (Mary Quite Contrary-See Recipes)at the World’s Championship Chili Cookoff in Las Vegas. All I can say is WOW! I purchased 2 bottles of the “Sweet Heat Addiction” because the Bloody Mary’s were fabulous! I was blown away by the “Crazzberry Fiesta” over chocolate. I was a restaurant owner and I have a mad passion for gourmet cooking. I have already put your product to the test. I made a Baked Brie en croute splattered with the Crazzberry…then I made Beef Wellington generously basted with Crazz…perfect! Today for lunch, I made quesadillas using gouda cheese and pureed Crazzberry Fiesta…OH MY GAWD! I’m in love with your product. I am grateful to my friend Jeff and you for introducing me to this new taste sensation.
  Gail, Vista, CA

ZestFest Fans
  My wife and I visited ZestFest yesterday in Fort Worth and tasted dozens of salsas and sauces. When we were leaving we both wanted to get a bottle of the favorite item we had tasted. We left with two bottles of sauce: Smokey Red Sensation and Crazzberry Fiesta. I’m getting hungry just thinking about them! Thanks.

Nick Lindauer Talks About AOC Gourmet Paste
  Any recipe that calls for chipotles in adobo can be revived with the Art of Chipotle Gourmet Paste with Adobo – save yourself the time of seeding and stemming those chipotles in the can and simply add a spoonful of the Gourmet paste. It’s a simple step that will make all the difference in flavor in your final dish.

The Hot Sauce Blog Reviews “Southwest Sunset Salsa”
  It’s rare that a salsa ever causes me to reach for a spoon and try it direct from the jar, but that’s exactly what happened with the remainder of my jar of Southwest Sunset Salsa. I began to eat it straight – no need to muck up the flavor of the salsa with anything else.

“I also am using the Fresh Cream Indulgence” on a few things now. I tend to use it more as a table sauce like Ketchup, but it is wonderful also.”
