Guilin is a region in southern China that is popular as a tourist spot due to its beautiful limestone formations and forests of osmanthus trees. Guilin cuisine is a mixture of Cantonese and Zhuang cuisine; their chili sauce is one of the region's three treasures alongside pickled tofu and rice wine. Guilin's chili sauce is made primarily from salted fresh chili, fermented soybeans, and garlic. This flavorful and fragrant regional hot sauce is used widely in both cooking and as a condiment.
Uses: Use chili sauce to top rice noodles along with meat and vegetables for a hearty meal. Add chili sauce while cooking to add aroma, spice, and heat.
