Hot Sauces


I go through phases of using hot sauces. Right now, I'm on a Cholula kick. I like Cholula because it doesn't have the vinegar taste of those Louisiana style sauces.

This bottle is an extra large 10 incher (250mm for you metric people). I should have put something next to it in the photo for scale.

It's nearly empty. What should I buy next?

I like Frank's Hot Sauce. It's a Louisiana style sauce, but it doesn't taste of vinegar like Tabasco. Also, I keep a bottle of Bufalo Chipotle sauce at my desk at work. I love the smokey, rich flavor.

Go for the Bufalo, you should be able to find it at any Supermercado around town.

Have you ever tried Tiger sauce? http://www.luzianne.com/template_buy_product.cfm?ProductID=75076-10001&

It's not too spicy (I like really spicy stuff) but the flavor is really good. It's hard to find here in Canada, so I just picked up 3 bottles last time I was in CA. It have enough of a kick to keep me entertained, yet my friends who are more 'sensitive' to hot stuff can enjoy it too. Great on sandwiches.

I think I'll have to give Cholula a try too. Cheers.

It's not exotic, but Tapatio seems to be a staple at all the authentic Mexican restaurants around here. I have some in my fridge too.

Melinda's XXXtra is my favorite. It doesn't have a vinegar taste. You can get a milder version and hotter version, but I find the XXX just right.

I know I'm late, but: I keep a bunch of em in rotation, and I just keep coming back to the Frank's RedHot. It's not just heat, but also tang!

That looks like a work desk. Do you keep a bottle for swiggin' throughout the day?
