Colombian Fast Food Sauces



Those of you who have been able to eat fast food in Colombia or in any Colombian restaurant will know that the sauces they serve them with are extravagant and out of this world, to say the least. Besides the traditional condiments like ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard, they also offer pink sauce, tartar sauce, avocado sauce, cilantro sauce, fruit sauces like pineapple and blackberry, and the one you always have to have, the house sauce which is always top secret.




In today's post I will show you how to make three of the most popular sauces I have seen in Colombia which are garlic mayo, pink sauce and pineapple sauce. With these three sauces you will be able to make delicious Colombian hamburgers and hot dogs which are great to have every now and then.


I also had the pleasure of doing a recipe collaboration with James Strange who also has his own YouTube channel called James Strage World of Flavor, and he will show you step by step, how to make a Colombian style hamburger and hot dog. So, I invite you to check out his YouTube channel to watch his video recipe.
