The results from the 2019 Mr Chilli Awards are in, and we’re thrilled to announce that our Signature Blend Hot Sauce has taken out 1st place in the Chilli Tomato Sauce category. Entries were open to all manufacturers from Australia and New Zealand in this highly competitive annual competition.
This result is a very exciting win for our sauce queen, Michelle, as this is the first sauce The Chilli Project produced and the one that launched the business. “When we first started The Chilli Project we only had one sauce, our Signature Blend Hot Sauce” says Michelle. “After years of making and perfecting it for family and friends, we sent it out for market testing and people loved it so we decided to manufacture it for sale” she explains. “The secret, I think, is the balance of heat and flavour. It’s what we aim for in all of our sauces. We want them to be delicious”.
With the flavours of tomato and capsicum and a blend of mild and hot chillies, The Chilli Project Signature Blend Hot Sauce works well with almost everything! It’s great as a pizza sauce, tossed through pasta, it’s awesome on nachos, meats & roasted vegetables, it’s delicious on bacon & eggs and makes the best ever seafood sauce when you mix it with mayonnaise.

The Chilli Project Jalapeno Hot Sauce also took out 2nd Place in the category of Chilli Sauce: Mild Heat. We get lots of wonderful feedback about this sauce from foodies and non-chilli lovers. It has a mild bite from the green Jalapenos and Cayennes but nothing too severe so it’s also popular with spice loving kids (including our own)! It’s delicious on mexican food, as a sandwich spread or even stirred through your guacamole or salad dressing!
