Updated on May 19, 2017

Ms. Venegas experiments with Mexican foods under the watchful critiques of her husband. The recipes need to pass a "when I was a kid" test.

Original Cholula Mexican Hot Sauce

All I knew about hot sauce when younger was Tabasco. My husband introduced me to the Cholula version of hot condiment. The blend of hot peppers and vinegar is perfect for any dish that needs some spark to open up those taste buds at breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The flavor is excellent with all Mexican dishes and many American standards. Try some with Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup.


Hot Sauce From Mexico

The word is out. You will be seeing this hot sauce on restaurant tables. The sauce is Made in Mexico and boasts a colorful label of red and yellow. Its trade mark is the wooden top on every bottle. Recently, the tops are being saved at this house.

If you do a small comparison, Cholula original has less salt than most hot sauces and as a daily user that is important. Hot sauce users need to watch their health at every turn.

As you continue down the page, notice there are three other favors of hot by this company. I have tried the garlic version and found it just as good as the original. There is a poll below for voting on your favorite. Go ahead and leave your mark.

A hot sauce is like a micro beer, the subtleties of the brew is a must for connoisseurs. This 4 pack of 5 oz bottles is a good gift for those that go for taste variety. Remember that there are many ways to buy this sauce online. Big bottle, little bottle, and designer packages. No need to wonder where to find Cholula.

 

Cholula Is A 100 Year Old Company

In the early eighties I visited the town of Cholula and stood on the highest hill and looked out over the village's 300+ church steeples. It is said the Spanish converted each Native pyramid into a church. The company chose the name because the area has a long, rich history.

The sauce is made in Chapala, a town my husband's family would visit on vacation when he was just 7. Chapala is near the Jalisco state capital of Guadalajara, is a lake vacation resort town and home to this condiment.

      I've never found Cholula sauce locally, but fell in love with both the Original and the Chili Lime variety while visiting an American cousin. A much more subtle kind of hot sauce than your basic Tobasco we all grew up on - I'd love to try all the flavours.

      It's a standard at our house too. Sometimes we buy groceries from Amazon, but try to buy local when we can. I use Amazon for so much else though!
