Some of my collection, the one in the middle is insanely hot:huh:
All of these are superb, tasty sauces. My personal fave is the hot on pulled pork taco's.dodgy said:Hiya,
The Cholula sauce is one I recognize in that group pic and there's always a bottle in the house. One of the strangest things (at least at first) was sprinkling that on my scrambled eggs. Seriously, it's pretty damn tasty.
One other item I'd suggest is the La Victoria green taco sauce. I'm a sucker for Enchiladas Verde, which uses a green tomato and tomatillo base. Been using this brand for many years and it's great for making a quick quesedilla in the microwave with some cheese and soft corn tacos. Very easy and actually tastes good.
Comes in Mild or Medium hot...........haven't tried the medium but the mild is just that. Nice little product to have in the fridge.
The best way to appreciate it is to make your own hot sauce. Make it with with a 1/2 whole super hot pepper to one cup of sauce. Leave it to brew/mature for 48 - 72 hours & try it. If it requires more heat, add it. Scotch bonnets have quite a fruity flavour, chocolate habanero's are quite smokie.antdad said:I'm surprised that super hot chillies impart that much flavour but as you say anything more than 1.2 - 1.5 million SU's isn't much more than a chemical lab as in it's purer forms capsaicin its chemically synthesised, colourless and flavourless (16 mil SU's).
Police pepper spray is around 5 mil SU's, Tobasco - 6K SU's for reference, bonnets, birds eye and habanero's are still plenty hot for me.
