I've got me some of this, Blair's 2am. Liquid death. 1/2 teaspoon in some chili does wonders.

I like to take baby portabella caps, fill them with Sriracha and top with cheese (prefer Gruyere, but Mozzarella works too) then grill

Y'all should really try making some of your own hot sauce. I do an asian-style chili sauce (think that little jar of red chillies in oil you get at every table in a real Chinese restaurant) every couple of years, and I vastly prefer it to anything I've ever purchased.

Crystal is my personal favorite. Beats all the other Louisiana hot sauces in my opinion. I use it po' boys, jambalaya, gumbo, etc. I tasted almost every single one commercially sold in New Orleans when I was there and I kept going back to it.

I used to hate Tapatio, but then I started eating it on breakfast taquitos. The vinegar is just right! Great stuff.

I really like Tabasco, Tapatio, and Sriracha. Just keep that Cajun Chef away.

I'll try that Melinda's stuff!

Mmmm--love me some hot sauce of all kinds: sriracha, Blair's, tapatio, Bronco Bob's etc. I'm starting to get into making my own as well; sambal olek and Harissa are up this weekend!

This one has quickly become my favorite. It's made with green habaneros and nopales. Even though it's got habaneros it's not too over the top for daily use. Delicious.

My first take at a hot sauce. Its mainly cayenne with a little piquin thai and chipotle thrown in

Never seen that one nopales and habanero might have to do a batch
i have nopales in my canyon . I do like the combo of carrots and habanero .
maybe tunas /prickly pear / and habanero
there is a guy named Dave Dewitt that has books out about chilies .

You want hot? My favorite is ground red savina habenero. Www.redsavina.com. Next, and it's twice as hot, is Bhut Jolokia. www.firehousepantrystore.com.

I use Louisiana Gold hot sauce in my house, I love the wood-aged character that it exhibits. I like to cook with the Vietnamese chili-garlic sauce that comes in jars with the green lid (not Sriracha sauce). Besides that, I make my own vinegar pepper sauce in bottles and habanero jelly preserves.

That baby's on my top of the list....Every Vietnamese house got these stocked.

My wife's favorite is 100% pain...Ouch.

Just recently got some of that Melinda's stuff. I'm on a nutritional detox, so my diet is pretty boring--this stuff has no heavily processed ingredients and tastes very interesting! Thanks for the recommendation!

You guys should try Portuguese Piri-Piri Frango sauce.
I make my own (in-laws family recipe, with a few tweaks) with a bit more kick, but it is AMAZING stuff. It's literally at every restaurant in Portugal, and for good reason!

Glad to hear you like it, which one did you get?

is it a secret or are you going to share the formula?:hungry:

Well, it's kind of done by feel. I guess I can give you a rough recipe... Haha
*These are all approximate*
1-1.5 Tbsps of Sriracha
Half a sweet onion (fine dice)
6 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 Tbsp of olive oil
1 Tsp of balsamic vinegar
S and P (big pinch) and another half pinch of sea salt
1 bottle of Pilsner (some use white wine, but I don't like it as much)

Take the whole thing and blend it until it's a fine, somewhat pulpy consistency.
It works AMAZINGLY on rotisserie chicken, but I use it on ribs, burgers, even as a condiment. The stuff is great!
