I haven't tried Valentina, is this regional or I've just not heard of it?I'm a total hot sauce normie. I keep the black bottle version of Valentina in the fridge for Tex-Mex, Sriracha for stir frys and Chinese takeout, and Tabasco for fried chicken, jambalaya, and bloody marys.
The only sauces I don't like are super-vinegary ones. Tabasco is about as much vinegar taste as I can take and even that one I don't use often.
Valentina/Tamazula are made in Mexico and have been around since the 1950s. Every store around here has it and I'm a long way from Mexico, so I'm guessing it's fairly popular.I haven't tried Valentina, is this regional or I've just not heard of it?
Let's not forget Frank's Red Hot
This is everywhere but I haven't quite gotten into it personally. Maybe I put it on the wrong things. I trust any hot sauce that has a terrible logoHere in Portland we have a local hot sauce that is one of the best things ever: Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce
This stuff is like $7 a bottle, but worth it IMO.
I had a bottle of a sriracha mayonnaise that was pretty good on most sandwiches, but yeah. Sriracha on every new sandwich, pizza, stew etc. that some hip restaurant introduces is getting old. One place by me introduced a breakfast burrito with sriracha and chorizo in it. I haven't tried it but those flavors together sound vile as shit.Most overrated sauce: sriracha. This is okay for the kind of foods it's traditionally served with but is not the kind of all purpose hipster sauce that can just be put on everything for no reason.
This is like saying you've never smoked a cigarette, tried whiskey, or banged a slutty older woman. It suggests a real lack of gumption towards life.I never really tried hot sauce in my life.
