OK, any other fans of really great HOT sauce or very well blended salsa or a simple colorful pepper. I'll fess up and say that I love the habanero pepper, jalepeno, sereno, cayenne, thai, and even the mild bell. There is something painful yet totally intoxicating about eating a really great pepper, hot sauce, or salsa.   Am I alone on this?   What do you compliment, splash or dash to spice it up caliente!!

just say NO to Tobasco(vinager)  and Pace Picante(stale tomatoes)

I usually eat something with hot sauce or salsa on it almost everyday. Love the flavor of jalepenos and serranos in food... not so much habanero (it's not the heat, just don't like the flavor). 'Charlies' makes a pretty good pico de gallo. I use cayenne in marinade for chicken and beef... and I do make a pretty decent chili w serrano, jalepeno, yellow wax, cayenne, and green chillis in it.

Hmmm, I beleive there is a hot sauce for all occasions.
Standard red Tabasco is good with eggs, or in a Bloody Mary.
The spicier green version is excellent on chicken strips, or for pork dishes.

Sriracha sauce is my daily driver , make the top of your head sweat, sauce. Good to take the chill off of any outing within seconds.  agree.gif

Mae ploy sweet chili sauce is the one I go through the quickest, its more like sweet and sour sauce with a little bit of heat, but it works on anything, I could put this stuff in PB&J's and it would taste good.

I like spicy, but I like to be able to taste what I'm eating too.  Generally the best compromise is Indian food.  hungry.gif

honestly, my favorite salsa is a fresh pico.  cooking does something to it that makes it less useful for me.  fresh pico in a bowl of thick chicken soup? YUM!  mixed with hummous?  YUM!  on top of bbq'ed pork?  YUM!

I do also like Tabasco and Cholua though. God, why are hot sauce names so hard to spell?

I really like the taste of the habanero pepper the best. It's just too hot to eat in large bites though. Has anyone ever tried 'Daves Insanity Sauce'...Be careful with this one, as one drop can heat up your food quickly!

Yep... have Dave's, Crazy Mother Pucker's, and the Ass Kickin stuff. Not much of a fan for those 'sauces' as they're all little more than concentrated capsaicin. Not much flavor... just heat. Works well to bring the heat up when the serranos are weak  smile.gif

As for the Daves Insanity, a tiny tiny little drop literally had me on the floor crying while gasping for air. That stuff is lethal.

Batch #37 hot sauce is my absolute favorite. If I recall, it is blended with habanero, carrots, garlic, lime...etc. A lot of heat but not too much where you lose the flavor of things. Love it on scrambled eggs!
