That shit is vile....

El Yuckatero has the best flavor IMO for those you can buy in the grocery store.

Correct.

And Franks for wings only, but wings haven't been worth their cost in over a decade.

Eating like a bodybuilder these days means I eat the shit out of hot sauce

Texas Pete is my current go-to. I don’t need hipster shit, just a little heat and flavor. Vinegar based only for me.

Crystal, Tapatio, and ChipotleTabasco are all good also

This is my go to for eggs and other food that I want mild heat.

For medium heat and delicious flavor, I like Grace Scotch Bonnet sauce.  It is available at Wal-Mart in the same section as Goya products.

Made in NC though. Everything is more marketable if it has Texas in the name.

ETA: and yes it's the best hot sauce for general purposes.

I use that as well.  I considered it one of the better widely available hot sauces.  By that I mean ones you can find walking into a regular grocery store anywhere in America.

I had never heard of this before a few years ago, my cousin told me it's what all the Mexicans he works with use.

i like Cholula for flavor and heat. If I want to add heat to something without changing the flavor I use Sriracha the Asian one with the rooster on the bottle. I like to add Sriracha to my bowl of chili because my wife can't handle heat at all

Texas Pete is pretty far down my list of hot sauces I'll buy. I'll consume it if nothing else is available though.

I don't ever see Texas Pete here.

On the tables its Cholula/Valentinas/Louisina, and pepper sauce (tabasco pepper in vinegar)

I like the yellowbird and boerne brand sauces - both semi local.

For those of you all excited about Texas Pete, is your idea of a good dinner steak and baked potatoes?

I ask because there’s no way someone who enjoys food would ever consider Texas Pete a good choice. Texas Pete is the absolute bottom of all hot sauce. Taco Bell and del taco packets are better than Texas Pete.

Add Trappey's Bull to that list.

But, yeah, those are my basic all-purpose sauces. I love tapatio for something a bit hotter and tabasco for still more heat. Cholula is great on texmex food, as El Yucatan jalapeno sauce most texmex places keep on the table.

There is no one single 'best' hot sauce. But yeah, sure, Texas Pete is a great general purpose sauce.


Also - it's hard to find outside of the individual packets, but Salsa Del Sol is the BEST for gas-station chicken strips or chicken livers.

There we go. Valentina Extra Hot. That's a great table hot sauce.

As far as popularity, the Mexican construction seem to use Tapito, so there's that.

For a cheapo grocery store hot sauce...  hard to beat Tapatio or Valentina.

Meh, Texas Pete is fine for a general purpose, not particularly hot, hot sauce. If it's what's available I have no issues using it. Having said that I don't think it stands out in any way from the other dozen or so other general purpose hot sauces out there. Hotter and specialty sauces are a whole 'nother animal though.

This right here fellas. El Yucateco makes the best store sauces. Asian and Cajun sauces come in second place.

Texas Pete and Franks sucks.

Texas pete is disgusting and shouldnt even count as hot sauce.

Should just be called... "red colored sauce"  


Crystal
Lousiana
Lousiana Habanero  

are all leagues better than texas pete red colored sauce.


Thanks Op my afternoon is ruined just being reminded that people exist that like that shit.

haven't had it but franks is one of the best hot sauces.
I make a great toasted habanero garlic honey hot sauce but damned if I could actually eat much of it. That one mason jar will probably last years.

None of this shit holds a candle to what he makes.  And I don't really like Texas Pete's at all.  We all like different things and that is ok.

That looks, dangerous.

It's very delicious, very tangy, but not hot at all.

I had a couple of bottles and was out in a week.

Kick it up a few notches on the heat, and it would be one of the best hot sauces I've had.
