The Very Best Hot Sauce....... - Page 4

post #46 of 177
Cholula is nice, it's actually owned by the Cuervo company so it even gets out to my part of the world, and we definitely don't get the luxury of choosing between tapatio, el yucateco, etc. For real raunchy Mexican food, I like Marie Sharp's or Cholula -> El Yucateco verde -> El Yucateco red -> Tapatio -> Valentina Sambal Oelek is clutch There was a BBQ sauce way back in the day called Texas Best that had a really nice spice to it, and the texture was thick, not shiny and goopy like a glaze. I think they sell it still but I'm not if the recipe is the same, it seemed to disappear for many years. Nothing beats Frank's Red Hot for wings, and classic Tabasco (fuck their other varieties) has a place on my fridge door as well. I don't like to drown my drunk food fry-up breakfast at 3am in hot sauce, but I do need a bit of vinegar and spice on them, so tabasco does well.

Tabasco was the only thing my parents bought for years so I grew tired of it. Now I have Sriracha and Frank's, although I do like Cholula and Tapatio as well. I have family in Louisiana and also like Crystal but never thought to buy any. Haven't tried the other stuff. Never even heard of Sambal Oelek.

Marie Sharp on tacos...ohhhh yes! Also. A cheap Thai hot sauce called "Golden Mountain." You can find it generally at cheap road side stalls in Thailand with an order of omelet. Soooo good, you gotto try it.

Lots of good suggestions here, to which I would add Bufalo Very Hot Chipotle Sauce, available at lots of groceries and almost everywhere in Latin American groceries. Has a complex, smokey taste beyond the usual heat. Great with black beans, in stews, on eggs -- practically on everything other than Black Forest Cake.

Pretty funny - I am not a chef (see my poasts in the dinner thread) nor an epicure but I have exactly these three in my refrig at all times.

I make my own sauce. Really easy - all you need is a few ingredients:

1) Chilis - say 5 red chilis, approx 6" long
2) Garlic - 2 cloves
3) Ginger - 1" piece, skinned
4) Say 100 ml of vinegar

Blend, add sugar/salt to taste and add splash of lime juice if you have it.

If you like it very hot, sub item 1 with the same volume of small birdseyes chilis.

Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after blending. (yes speaking from experience)

Dynamite with chicken. Give it a try.

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.


very good!!!! This is also a wonderful thing to use specifically for prawns. I usually crust them in rock salt and cook them shell and all and dip them in this sauce.

I put it on everything, eggs, chicken wings--anything you would put hot sauce on normally.

What I stock: Sriracha, Cholula, and Tabasco (only for those red morning drinks). There is this Chinese place near me that makes its own hot sauce which seems basically like ground up peppers in some sort of sweet/sour base that is just the tits. Been itching to get some.
