Simple, Savory & Slightly Smoky Barbacoa Stew
Simple, Savory & Slightly Smoky Barbacoa Stew

March 05, 2019

Hearty and delicious – this recipe is garden fresh yet has a rich depth bound by proteiny quinoa and complex smoky Barbacoa.  Can be whipped up in way under an hour, but tastes as if it’s been simmering all day long.  The rotating texture of vegetables from cooked to blanched to raw, hits the spot all year long!

No fuss, no rush with tons of ingredients to create intense flavor since the Barbacoa manages the work here.  This salad is balanced and scrumptious enough to serve as a main dish for a light lunch or a worthy accomplice to a full course setting.

    "Probably one of the tastiest Hot Sauces I’ve EVER had!!!"

    "Yummy and delicious line of authentic hot sauces, each one delightfully unique with a distinctive flavor, taste, and level of spiciness. Please pass the hot sauce, but not just any hot sauce; please make sure it's Maya Mike's Belizean Barbacoa!

    Such an unusual blend of pure, unaltered fresh ingredients from whole fruits and veggies. From roasted garlic to scorched raisins, the ingredients can't get any better or blend any better together...

    Add a kick to your other condiments, sauces, and salad dressings as well as a variety of spicy dishes or add their mild hot sauce (white label) for a flavor boost, minus the heat. I'm hooked on all of 'em. Best be extra nice to me, or I may not be inclined to share! 😃 Buy your own bottle(s) at and enjoy!"

    "I enjoy the variety of flavors and heat and like to use as a marinade for meat and veggies on the grill; the rich, smokey flavors add kick to any meal. I highly recommend all of them!"

  • Not enough Marie Sharp's love on this subreddit! . it's so good in my opinion. I've noticed that it has become more available recently. maybe its gaining traction

    I think the standard white label "Hot" version of Marie Sharp's is the most versatile sauce I've ever had. I think all of their sauces are good, but when the sauce has fresh fruit in it, it's not even fair comparing it to most other mass-produced sauces. This lady is totally crushing it, and people are on here saying Cholula, or El Yucateco, or whatever is the best sauce? If you want hot for the sake of being hot, there are a million sauces that can do that. But this one has the best taste.

    One of my Favorite Marie Sharp's sauces...What's your favorites? Any other carrot based types out there?

    I am addicted to this woman's hot sauces. I actually spoke to her a couple of years ago about getting bulk delivery. She was so sweet. My favorite is the Grapefruit Pulp Hab, followed by the one you are holding. I buy them ALL, and am stressing out about the fact that I am down to two bottles. I love the Sweet Habanero on pork chops. I know I am mentioning a lot about non-carrot based Marie's....I am just sooooo addicted to her sauces, I am glad someone else is too.
