    Here it is, the very best hot sauce - Cholula, made in Mexico. Available most places (Safeway, etc.). Hot, but not burning. Full of flavor not just heat. (Why I like it better than Tabasco) It comes in the bottle with the real wooden cap.

    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 don't know about that being the very best, it is pretty good though.

    I'm pretty fond of Nando's peri-peri sauce...

    I tend to like Dave's Insanity Hot Sauce for my homemade chilli as it is a nice heat. Aside fromt hat you are spot on! All these hot sauces have wonderful flavor profiles.

    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. [​IMG]

    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.
