Do you use hot sauce? How hot do you like it?

Recommended Posts

So I'm just curious does everyone here enjoy hot sauces? If so what is your go to hot sauce that you need to always have a bottle of? 

Mine has to be valentina (black label) but lately I've really enjoyed El Yucateco's green habanero sauce. 

Now when it comes to other hot sauces. How hot do you like them? Long story short I think I have been eating too much hot sauce lately and I cant feel any heat from the normal hot sauces or even the "XXX" hot sauces. So I have been watching "Hot Ones" on youtube (great show if you havent seen it) 

And I just bought a couple of the really insane hot sauces that I saw on the show off amazon. DA' Bomb came first in the mail and I had to get some friends over.  DA' Bomb has a scoville level of 135,600. In comparison a regular bottle of Tabasco is 700 scoville units. So we grilled up some chicken and tried it out. This is definitely not your normal hot sauce! My tongue was on fire! It was hot but still I wasnt screaming and running around like all my friends were. So I felt I needed more. 

So today in the mail I got Blair's Mega Death Sauce with Liquid Rage. This one comes in at 500,000 Scoville units and maybe this one will give me the sting I need. Probably gonna get everyone together again this weekend to try it out. I'm gonna have some milk on the side ready to be used!

 

So again this is one of my things i love and I'm just curious about everyone here. Do you like hot sauce? Do you not? If so how hot have you gone before?

I know a lot of people like you that love the hot sauces.  But sadly, I'm what you'd call a wuss-mouth.  The hottest I'll go is the old standard Rooster Sriracha.  At my age, the hot stuff almost always causes pain a few hours after consumption :)

Yea I used to eat that stuff alot. I got tired of it though. I change up sauces alot. I like to try all different kinds. There are some sauces that are a little weak on the heat but have amazing flavors

No hot sauce for me thanks !!! anything hotter than a bar-b-Que potato chip is WAY to spicy for me !

Every once in a while I will do a tiny dip of salsa if available eating tortilla chips from a mexican resturant. mild is ok and will try a bigger scoop if not to spicy.

One of my kids likes "Franks" a lot, and I think it's pretty good too.  But I don't think it's very hot compared to these nuclear options you bought. 

Chas10e mentioned the salsa at Mexican restaurants.  I usually try the hottest they got at those places, then back off if it's too hot.  Most of the time, the hotter salsas have a lot more flavor whereas the mild just tastes like watery tomato.  But then I'll start sweating and my wife says "you better take it easy".

Yea Frank's is literally has the lowest scoville units of any hot sauce. It comes in at 450 scoville units

Depends on the sauce, really. There's a thai restaurant near where I work (in fact, I had dinner with TrekMD there once :) ) -- I'll use any and all hot sauces they have there. But I'm not one of those hot sauce people who has to look for the hottest of the hot. I like a little pick-me-up.

So when it comes to salsa this is my go to stuff right here. It's got a great flavor too it and just enough heat to be good but not over power you

I've seen this brand and sauce at my grocery store, but the "CAUTION" on the label scares me away.  Next time it's on sale, I'll give it a shot.

I LOVE spicy food & sauces but it has to be tolerable. If it’s so spicy that I can’t enjoy the flavor, than that’s no good. 
 

This is from my absolute favorite restaurant, which makes pasta from scratch. If you can’t make out the writing, it says “Reaper Hab”. 🔥 Soooo good. I pair it with Buffalo Alfredo sauce.
