Enjoy your Cholula, those are quality.

I like them. The chili garlic reminds me of PeriPeri, and the Chipotle is awesome in the chili I just made. The Marie Sharp's I like better than the comatose level version of their sauce. Same heat level but the extract flavor (at least, that's what I think I taste in the back of my throat) is less.

At least, those are my impressions based on tasting off a spoon. I also mainlined some Da Bomb to see if that throat feeling/taste was the extract. It was.

We are iced in, but in desperate need of necessities, so I went to the Hispanic grocery store right by my house. Surprisingly (not) they had a large variety of hot sauce, so I snagged a few I'd not had before:



The El Yucateco and Valentina are ones I've had before, just took the opportunity to restock. The others are new. Really looking forward to the No Wimps Allowed.

I can't get Marie Sharps around here and I really miss the Belizian Heat one.

I wish they sold chipotle by the gallon. I use it so much.

Is there a popular manufactured habanero salsa that's used in taqueria restaurants? I've been to two places that serve an identical tasting salsa and it's delicious and hot but they refuse to tell me if they are made at the restaurant or if they buy it. I think it has to be purchased since these were two different restaurants. The thing is that it doesn't taste like it's jarred, it tastes like fresh mix of tomatoes and peppers plus misc stuff. It's sort of a dullish red color and it's not chunky.

e: It looks very similar to this

Are you positive that it's habanero salsa? Salsa de chile de arbol is the "hot" salsa around here and most versions I've tasted are all remarkably similar, whether it comes from a taqueria or is made by Mexican American home cooks.

Yeah it's habanero and its really hot. When i see white people try it they are in real pain. When i search images for arbol salsa it doesnt look like it. It looks like my picture.

The only pacakaged sauce I can think of that looks like that is El Yucateco Kutbil-Ik. It is pretty drat hot and also delicious. Could that be right?

It looks tasty. That one looks a little more runny but I'm going to buy some regardless. Thanks

I was going to suggest the same thing. The flavor is also pretty similar to what you described, but they might add some tomato puree to it for thickening and flavor. I can't taste any tomato at all in kutbil-ik.

Whatís a good, relatively cheap ghost pepper sauce that has a flavor besides heat? I have a bottle of the Island Pepper Company stuff that I got for 3 bucks. Itís not bad but it just tastes like hot. I want something that I can put on some pretzels or something. I have ghost pepper mustard, which is tasty but not really ghost pepper hot.

this is a bit more expensive than the average, but it is quite good.

it's like $6 here in Texas (for obvious reasons I guess)

But I'll second that it's pretty good.

yeah, I can get it at whole foods for around $6 so it might be worth checking there if one is near you as an alternative to online.

If you're okay with more of a salsa, Mrs. Renfro's Ghost Pepper Salsa is pretty good, although frankly I think it seems a little unspicy compared to the other ghost pepper products I've tried (it's still extremely spicy, just not as hot as other things I've had). It has a lovely slightly smoky, slightly fruity flavour.

I tried their ghost pepper salsa con queso and it basically just tasted like hot onions. I guess that could be somebody's thing but as someone who hates onion.

If you are looking for something mild but tasting great, Blair's original is worth trying. I guess knowing what you are looking for would help though.

Haha, that's fair enough. I like a vinegary taste and a good deal of spiciness, like ghost pepper level or so.
