In our family, Tapatío has all the time been the prevailing scorching sauce. I like Cholula and Texas Pete simply as effectively, however I believe my Hispanic spouse actually likes the Mexican man within the massive sombrero on the Tapatío model’s bottle. He is a good-looking little satan, is not he?
Now, we’ve got a brand new challenger. Dealer Joe’s Jalapeño Pepper Sizzling Sauce steps into the ring. Let’s verify him out.
But once more, we gotta name TJ’s out on the inconsistency of the model title. This can be a Mexican-inspired meals product, so it ought to be from Dealer José. If a dude named Joe provides me a jalapeño scorching sauce and a distinct dude named José provides me one other scorching sauce, you possibly can guess your burro’s backside I am gonna decide the one José recommends.
And secondly, aren’t jalapeños normally inexperienced? Then why are they crimson on the bottle? Possibly there are crimson jalapeños. Those at Subway are all the time inexperienced and those on my nachos are all the time inexperienced. If there are crimson ones, I’ve by no means seen them.
However anyway. This sauce packs a potent punch. There’s a bit of chili pepper meter on the aspect of the bottle, and it is like 7/8 crimson. Which means it is 7/8 scorching. The opposite 1/8 have to be vinegar. Which is its solely weak spot.
It is acquired true jalapeño pepper taste and it’s most undoubtedly spicy. It isn’t deathly spicy, although. It will not kill you. Even in case you’re a white individual.
However in case you completely don’t love spiciness, then this is not for you…not for the faint of coronary heart, certainly. I can deal with reasonable portions of it. I’ve turn out to be a bit of resistant to scorching stuff, however I undoubtedly have my breaking level. And I’ve acquired some recommendation for you singles on the market: if you are going to marry right into a Mexican household, LIKE SPICY FOOD.
We have seen that in PA there’s a a lot decrease tolerance to spice than in CA. All of the German and English heritage round right here has propagated a love of bland-ish meals. Bratwurst, sauerkraut, and beer might be the boldest meal the Quakers and the Pennsylvania Dutch can deal with. Though…I do not assume both a type of teams drinks beer in any respect…hmmm…So there’s that, then.
Getting again to the subject, this scorching sauce is tasty and spicy and it just about does what it is imagined to do. Unsure if we have seen him upset our reigning champ, Tapatío, fairly but. However he is a contender, that is for certain.
Use it to offer your nachos some additional kick. Or your burrito…or your…no matter. You get the concept. Sonia offers it 4 out of 5 Stars. Identical right here. Backside line: 8 out of 10.
