The spiciest, our Original Malagueta goes great on anything. Seriously.

Starting with a nice sweet smoothness, it quickly spreads heat along your taste buds and livens up every bite.

Pour it eggs and bacon; use it on burgers instead of ketchup; marinade a whole chicken, or add it to your vodka. The flavor of Carnival is in this bottle.

We add all-natural mango pulp to make our Mango Malagueta.

A medium spice sauce, it is great on sandwiches instead of mayo or mustard. You can add it to your favorite guacamole recipe to give it a tropical kick, or even brush it on some shrimp on the grill.

Practicly drinkable on its own, our Pineapple Coconut Malagueta is a mild, tropical taste explosion.

Sautee beef and veggies in this sauce and pour it all over rice. So good. Dip almost anything and you'll immediately experience the cool breezes of Copacabana beach. We promise.

Rio's Brazilian Malagueta sauces are inspired by the traditional Malagueta used throughout Brazil. Discovered by the Portuguese over 500 years ago, the malagueta pepper was named so because the word "malagueta" meant "spicy." A close cousin of the serrano, the malagueta pepper is a small green and red chile that packs a powerful bite.
