I love spicy food and hot sauces. I was thinking about making my own. Any tips or suggestions? What is your favorite hot sauce? I kind of wanted to do a roasted habanero with low vinegar. And some other crazy stuff. I was even thinking about growing my own peppers and tomatoes. I suck at that though so I think just the farmers markets will be where I get them.

My favorite is Harold's Dangerously Hot. It provides a nice "punch" of heat, but still retains a nice full flavor. There are a few sauces hotter than this that I do like, but this one remains flavorful given how hot it is rather than just burning your face off. It's made from Red Savina Habaneros.

I second the cholula recommendations (especially the lime one!) I also love sriracha and valentino.



Hottest one I've ever had was something called Z but its flavor was terrible.

Valentino is more like cholula than sriracha. It's appropriate for mexican food and the like rather than asian food. I'm not sure I've tried Tapatillo, I may have to look into that.

I have tried that! I don't remember how it tasted, though, because it was part of a hot sauce challenge where you went down the line of about eight hot sauces ranging from tabasco from death with a handful of chips and ate a scoop of each.

I'm a sucker for advertising. So, there's so many cool looking hot sauces that are just run of the mill. That's why i stammer at Dave's sauces. Sounds like all hype and not the best quality. but,....
