    I see you all have some excellent hot sauces. I could eat hot sauce on near everything. I have many if not most of what was listed. I would check out Pure poison or Hogs ass. they are a habenaro garlic hot sauce.s they are absoultely dellicious.

    I could photo my frig and you'd see Cholula and Pace (the 1980s oh-so-great hot sauce). I use Cholula on fried eggs and Pace in omelets. If I have tapsilog, I don't use hot sauce, but a vinegary sauce (I don't know it's name).

    To refresh my palate, I sometimes use plain old salt and black pepper. I recommend doing that every few weeks to reboot the system.

    Not sure if thus has been covered, Valentina is probably the most versatile hot sauce. Try it.

    Siracha is a go to for hot.

    I experienced all that is Cholula about 5 years and have been faithful to her until the last month. Over the last month, I have been having an affair with Tabasco Green Pepper Sauce. Cholula will always be there for me, but for right now the Green Pepper Sauce is doing good things for me.

    So why do people keep hot sauce in the fridge? I'm not talking about fresh salsa like the Pace someone mentioned, but stuff like Cholula, crystal, Tabasco I never refrigerate.

    I dunno. Maybe because I almost always lived where summers are long and hot. People get in the habit of refrigerating everything after it's opened. I always thought it was strange when I saw people leaving ketchup and mustard out.

    I run into this stuff all the time now that this thread made me aware of it. Was at the flea market yesterday where they sold BBQ pork on skewers. Dripped this all over it for the win! Yum.

    I was traveling and ate at a breakfast place for a few days that didn't have Cholula. I realized I liked this just as much. It isn't better, just different but in a good way. I am going to work it into my regular rotation.

    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!

    Its actually pretty good! I actually prefer Chinese hot garlic sauce though.

    I've been mixing a tiny bit of this with lesser hot sauces to make them more hot. It works, I just can't touch my face for the rest of the day lest I burn out my eyes.

    Is Japanese Yuzukosho available in the US? It is great...peppers and citrus and salt.

    I've never seen it over here. We get yuzukosho from a friend of ours who owns a restaurant in Ginza and makes her own - there's a great heat to this stuff, and a little goes a long way.

    To me, there's no substitute for Tobasco - a national treasure. You will find Tobasco in restaurants in France as well as being ubiquitous on tables in "Italian" restaurants in Tokyo.

    Sure it is. But a national treasure? That's a bit much.
