About Légal Hot Sauce

Légal Hot sauce is made from a special recipe passed down by generations and now for the first time is available in The United States. The Malagueta pepper grows in Brazil and is the key ingredient in Légal Hot sauce . Legend has it that the Malagueta pepper was discovered by the Portuguese upon exploring South America in what is now Brazil.  The mystical plant has been used for thousands of years by the natives for food and medicinal purposes. It was instrumental in the discovery of gold in Brazil, wherever explorers found the malagueta growing. Gold was soon discovered close by thus the Malagueta plant became a sign of good luck. For years the plant was used to season food in local recipes but it wasn’t until a local village woman started to create a sauce using the malagueta pepper that  what would become “Légal”  was born. The name “Légal” means “cool” in Portuguese and conveys the carefree lifestyle of the Brazilian people coupled with their spice and zest for fun. Légal soon became one of the most popular hot sauces in the land. Légal was discovered by an American businessman who traveled often to Brazil and loved its taste on everything from steak to fish, chicken and even rice! He soon had to have it in America! In 2017, Légal was imported for the first time to the USA and is rapidly becoming a favorite of chefs and foodies alike.
