The Very Best Hot Sauce....... - Page 2

post #16 of 182
This is my favorite hot sauce for chili. I got it at a gas station in West Virginia, but I've ordered more online since.

Crystal Sauce, the real Louisiana hot sauce. Cheap and good balance between heat and flavor.



Pickapeppa is sweeter and hotter, especially good on chili and hot dogs.




Cholula's pretty good too, just never get it at the store.

I assume you're a fan of Charlie's Chili by Newport Pier as that's the only place I've seen this.

Picking a best hot sauce is just not possible for me as I am a huge fan of hot sauce and like all the varieties for different foods or moods I am in.

As to the OP, Cholula is great but I wish they made it a bit hotter. I go through about half a bottle per meal.

I thought Cholula was the best until I had Sriracha.

A family favorite for years, we use it often for breakfast and seafood as well as for traditional Mexican food dishes. Try it next time you have scrambled eggs or fresh oysters. Yum!


I prefer Tobasco to Chulula, even though I do like Chululah.

Here in Houston, Tx. every single Taqueria I have been to, as well as medium and decent Mexican restaurants have Chululah at the table.

Some have Tobasco also and some do not. A typical taqueria like Arandas would probably have just Chululah, while a decent restaurant like Pappasittas will usually have both.

I went through a "hotter is better" phase but found I could taste more and therefor enjoy more by dialing back the heat and going for flavor. But, we each have our won tastes, don't we? To me Cholula has the most wonderful hot and tangy flavor but still allows me to taste the rest of the meal.

rnoldh...those are some nice ZZ Top video links you got there. Some how them seem quite fitting mixed in with a discussion about hot sauce. I would think the Reverend Willy G would approve. Have mercy.

ever been around indonesians?

they actually concoct this sauce that has those tiny thai chilis (about 1cm long that is pepperspray/mace strong), soy sauce, and ketchup. for anything protein/fatty its awesome. it really just brings out the flavors where you can tell the different ingredients (weird since its so strong, but it will).

its the thai/southeast asian variety of pepper thats actually too strong to use alone for food unless finely minced. they are easy to grow and aesthetically pleasing so you can just plant seeds into a medium pot and just water them.

haha. actually pico pica is everwhere it is at vons or your local chain grocery market.
youre right though picking a best sauce is not possible as i like a lot of them for their different characteristics, so saying any one sauce here kind of implies you dont like the others which isnt the case.
i would love to see how you go through a half bottle of cholula a meal. i would pay you to see that !!

2. Sriracha -new standby

3. Tabasco - old standby

I remember traveling down into New Orleans area back in the 70's. They served Crystal everywhere. I like it a little better than Tabasco but Tabasco has its own unique and wonderful flavor.
