I poked around a bit and didn't find a post about hot sauce or salsa, so I thought it was high time that I made a thread to discuss my favorite food item/condiment of all time!



So, what is your favorite kind of hot sauce or salsa?

I previously mentioned Mrs. Renfro's salsas in my interview thread right here. Here is their website. Their habañero and green salsas are so yummy!



I have recently discovered the hottest thing I've ever had in my mouth, It's a Mexican hot sauce known as Kutbil-ik, by El Yucatero. It is evidently made from an old Mayan recipe. Now, I can eat some hot, hot, hot, hot food and not even blink. Let's just say that I "learned" really fast about the Kutbil-ik, and to respect the label when it says that 1 tbsp is a serving.

Any interested parties may check out their site right here .



So, you hot and spicy sauce and salsa fans out there......what do you like?

I wish I had a stronger pallet, but alas I do not. However, I do like me some salsa...mild kinds, of course



I like Muri Glen (or whatever) mild version...I also like...I don't know the brand (maybe the same?) but it's a black bean salsa.



I also enjoy making my own



Cheers and ole!

I like fresh salsa, not jarred, so I usually pick a local fresh-made one. I like the Trader Joe's Hot Salsa a whole lot, after I blend it a little more in the blender.



I'm a Tabasco girl, but I'm always open to any delicious hot sauce! I love Sriracha sauce for Asian foods.

<<<loves too many salsas to list them all here. Seriously, when I moved from MI, there were I think 7 kinds of salsa in my fridge. Salsa with seitan, salsa with potatoes, salsa with rice..it's very versatile.



If I had to pick just one, it would be American Spoon's (spoon.com) Mango-Habanero salsa. This stuff is amazing, and wickedly hot. Yum.

I like homemade personally - I can make it hot enough for my preferences... or if jarred, I like the Mrs. Renfro's green or the Safeway (store brand) Peach Pineapple Salsa - to which I MUST add more minced jalapenos...



For hot sauce I like Crystal. I make killer "Buffalo Wings" with seitan and Crystal Hot sauce...

I usually eat President's Choice (a store brand) hot salsa. I agree fresh salsa is great, but bottled salsa is cheap and convenient, so it's what I keep around. As for hot sauces, I like a habanero sauce that a local jamaican place stocks. It's bright yellow and not as acidic as many hot sauces. My boyfriend likes Dave's insanity, which is very hot.

My favorite salsa is the safeway brand medium salsa. It works on so many things.



As for hot sauce, my fav is this asian chili hot sauce with a rooster on the bottle, but I forgot the name and I can't find it any where! :cry;

I used it on everything; in beans, burritos, stirfries, soups. I miss my hot sauce.

I think I may have to call up my dad and make him track it down for me!

We usually have more in there, we love hot sauce One of my favorites is El Yucateco ( I think I spelled that right). I have a Habenero Lime salsa and a Pico De Gallo salsa currently in the fridge.

In order for that hot sauce to be 6 million scoville units it would need to be about 1/3 capsaicin by volume in which case it couldn't be sold in the US without a prescription, so something isn't adding up.



ETA: It appears the sauce is made with an extract that is 6 million scoville units, the website gives no indication of the scoville rating for the actual product.

I saw someone mention Sriracha chile sauce. A sushi chef friend of mine gave me 2 bottles of that stuff and I can't get enough of it. I put it on rice, potatos, vegetables, and when I was still eating animals I would put it all over them. Now I have none, and I have to either order it from the website or visit an Asian market. But it's worth it, it has a nice taste to it besides just the heat factor.

I looooooove salsa! I buy EXTRA HOT and add in some jalapenos! I don't like hot sauce though. Best salsa is homemade, but Chi-Chi's (not the jar, at the actual restaurant) makes awesome spicy salsa.

MFuture, Sriracha is perfect on potatoes, isn't it? Mmmmm.



This thread has inspired me to make my own salsa for dinner tonight. I'm excited! I haven't made salsa in quite a while.

Bumpity bump bump....



I was on vacation, visiting a friend this past week and she took me to a spectacular store in New Hope, Pennsylvania called Suzie Hot Sauce. It was truly heaven for those who like the spicier things in life, so I thought I'd share the link here for those interested.


http://www.suziehotsauce.com/



After much browsing (and much taste-testing) I took home a bottle of Chipotle Slam, which is rated a 6 by the site.

It's so damn good I can't stand it.



Just wanted to share.

Ooh, salsa! I've had a really hard time finding a storebought salsa I truly love. My mom makes a great homemade salsa that's a medium heat where most of the heat comes from garlic rather than jalapeno or other peppers (I hope anthony11 is listening), and it has a unique sweet flavor that I've never tasted anywhere else. The closest thing to it is Hell on the Red, which I think may only be available regionally. I like a lot of restaurant salsas, but I've yet to find anything in a jar I'd be in a big hurry to buy again. We sometimes get Arriba salsas, and I like a couple of their varieties decently well, but unfortunately, when faced with the array of flavors on the grocery store shelf, I can never remember which ar ethe ones I like.



One thing I do know for sure... I HATE HATE HATE Pace!

We get a hot sauce at the farmers market that is a little like the rooster sauce except much, much hotter.



Ebola had about a quarter teaspoon on a chip once and he had to eat about half a loaf of bread to end the pain. Remilard says it is worse than habeneros, which he has eaten raw a couple of times.

ingredients: water, sugar, vinegar, chili, garlic powder, salt.



I'm not sure. I think it actually contains fire.

I like the Roasted Garlic Salsa by Taco Bell good and cheap. For hot sauce I use Texas Pete or Crystal.

I LOVE Cedar's Mexican Gold salsa, the hot hot hot kind! I can't say whether or not it is the hottest salsa I have ever had, but it is very, very good, my favorite.
