Your favorite hot sauces.



For my home made tacos or burritos it is this unusual and hard to find sauce: "Captain Thom's Dia de los Muertos Piquine Tequila Pepper Sauce".

A coworker picked me up a bottle down in Phoenix because he knows I'm always looking for something different in the way of hot sauces.....And It's deliciously different. It's really not as hot as it looks either. It goes perfectly on my quickie scrambled-egg, onion and cheese burritos as well as meat tacos etc.

I have no need for the little attached skeleton actually but I can always find a kid who will take them off my hands for me.

I have been ordering the stuff off the internet since. It's a little spendy that way but I can probably justify it as one of those items that lasts somewhat. I've been getting mine from here:

Dia de los Muertos Piquine Tequila Pepper Sauce

****************************



Now for my homemade Ketchup and Horseradish shrimp cocktail sauce I spice it up with a little of each of these.

Any salsas you might like are fair game to recommend as well.

I'm the same way, always looking for more/different sauces. I like tiger sauce. Funny you mention using it in ketchup, I used to put it on hot dogs, lol. Always have a bottle of Louisiana around. Tabasco and cholula green are also staples. Caribbean Road Kill is one I wish I found more often.

I like Tabasco's buffalo sauce on chicken tenders.

The Melinda's looks good but I never yet tried it.

The Dia de los Muertos Piquine Tequila Pepper Sauce that I mentioned in the OP goes good with Tex Mex.

I make my own shrimp cocktail sauce out of ketchup and horseradish then douse it with both the Tiger and some of the Pickapeppa. The Pickapeppa is darker and much different from the Tiger but both sure add some good zest to the cocktail sauce.....I'd put my homemade (which I mix up only as I use) up against any store bought any day.

And now that you mention it Cholula Green goes great on tamales. I like a green sauce on those but don't know how to make tamales and don't get around to eating them often.




I'm finding two different brands of the Caribbean Road Kill out there. You could probably find it on the net somewhere. That's looking hot enough to flame my acid reflux up a little in my aged years.

Yea I probably will have to order some soon. I actually remember it being relatively mild. The pineapple kills the heat a little.

Tapatio. The Mexican restaurants around here use it. It's fairly mellow but flavorful.

Sriracha. I just like the fresh pepper taste on lots of foods.

Certain foods call for thin hot sauce, so there's always a bottle of that vinegar-based stuff around too.

Anybody combine hot sauce with peanut butter for a sandwich? Different but good.

I like trying different sauces. Lots of tasty varieties out there, and a few not-so-tasty ones.

My old standby is the ordinary red Tabasco. Just has a great flavor that compliments so many foods well.

I've tried lots of hot sauces, and I like most of them, but the old standby, Mclhenny's Tabasco is still my favorite.

I've also become a big fan of Tabasco Buffalo. I usually end up trying both it and regular Tabasco on things to see which goes best. +1 using it on chicken tenders.

Never mixed hot sauce with pb for a sandwich, but spicy peanut butter noodles were a weekly meal in my house growing up. I feel like a hot sauce pb sandwich had to have been conceived in a dorm room by people under the influence of cannabis. I fully intend on trying it.

Darn post quote doesn't work on mobile.... responding to FlatTop obviously.

I'll freely admit that I'm a pu$$y when it comes to hot/spicy foods.

That being said, I've been trying to train myself to like hotter foods.

Right now, Cholula Chipotle hot sauce is about perfect.


Tabasco's Chipotle hot sauce is a touch too hot for me, but I use it when I feel daring.

I also grow Tabascos and make an uncooked pepper vinegar sauce from the chartreuse young peppers and a cooked red sauce similar to the "Tabasco Sauce" that's mass produced from the mature peppers but mine is saltier and smoother.

Mine is similar. Less garlic, no sugar.

Mine was more along these lines Trinidad Pepper Sauce Hot! Hot! Hot! Recipe - Food.com

But a whole lot less garlic. Now the carrots were really sweet...

Yep, me too. The only one I can tolerate is Cholula which has great flavour and minimal heat. A friend in Barbados always gave me some he made but I couldn't do it. Extreme heat.

My best sauce has come from a chili I got from Lowe's, and was only listed as a 'chili pepper'. LOL
It is hot, but a bit fruity. They lasted a few years due to mild winters, and I'm going to try and save some seeds from the dried peppers...

Cholula is from the Chile D'Arbol, I think somewhere between a jalapeno and Serrano.
