I am needing recommendations for hot sauce brands. My sons love hot sauce.  One loves as much heat as possible, the other not so much.  Any suggestions?  Thanks !

We like Mexico Lindo brand, various flavors and hotness.  Our fav hot is the orange habanero and fav mild is chiltepin. Available at any of the grocery stores and very reasonably priced.

Try the little round and dried chiltepin as Bullshipper said. Grind in your fingertips or crush and spread to your level. Very tasty little guys with heat. The Mexico Lindo brand has some good flavors. A really good one I thought might be a novelty but turned out to sit on our table daily is chipotle dulce which comes in a small red squeeze bottle by Clemente Jacque. I assume invented by an Aztec who was sipping on bacanora or mezcal and spilled the honey into his smoked jalapenos, LOL. Some different and very good peppers here.

never ever grind them with your fingers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!the capsaicin levels are extremely high and remember capsaicin is what is used in bear repellent.


you will later burn your nose, eyes and men if you go to the restroom, they will hear you screaming for blocks! 
there are many grinders available, here is one i have been using for over 50 years.

Frankie, yes, a molcajete or a small ironwood grinder is probably better advised. It just doesn't bother me much, have done it for years. We literally eat lots of peppers, chile de arbol, chiltepin, jals and serranos of course. Poblanos, caribes, scotch bonnets, anaheims and bells. I clean and handle where my wife has to wear rubber gloves for most. Careful when you rub your eyes or nose and as stated, when you head behind the nearest palm to drain recycled Tecate. Carried pepper spray for years when became available and proven in grizzly country in the Wyoming Tetons wilderness areas where they are king. Never had an encounter to use it but always tried a new or used can each season. Never tried it on a salad though??

Salsa Petrolera is another good one we buy in Santovalle in Hermosillo. Don't know if the SC Santovalle carries it here, but a dab in a quesadilla will make it a lot more interesting.

We gave up on buying bottles of hot sauce about 10 years ago, having tried dozens. Doesn't seem to matter the brand name or the chili - they all have an overpowering taste of preservative chemicals and vinegar. Yuck. We started making our own - it's really easy and cheap and balanced for our individual tastes, hot or mild, thick or thin, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Cajun, etc. Dozens of websites - https://www.chilipeppermadness.com/recipes/how-to-make-hot-sauce/

Good recommendations above, about Chiltepin and the Mexico Lindo products. Love them both.

One of my favorite NOB hot sauces is Pico Pica, the hot variety. But I have never found it in Mexico.

Sooooo, I decided to taste test a number of ones that ARE available in Mexico, to see which one was the closest.

The winner was what has to be one of the largest selling hot sauces in Mexico, Salsa de Huichol. I was surprised. But I do like it alot. It has the smokiness of roasted tomatoes and/or chiles in it. Somewhere in the medium hot range.


When I am hankering for something HOT, I turn to the habanero salsas. I like the Mexico Lindo one the best, so far.
