Your favorite hot sauces??

I'll have to break mine into 3 general categories and no, I do not put hot sauce on everything I cook unlike some crazies I know with porcelain stomachs.

Mexican: Way out in front of everything else, is Cholula and Tabasco Jalapeno sauce. No, I don't go HOT for hot's sake but rather as a flavor enhancer. My one exception to real heat is Salsa Brava, made by La Victoria. Back in the 50's this was my Dad's taco sauce and was so hot back then that I hated it as a kid. Now, I think it has been cooled down after 60 years and is sometimes hard to find. The intense hot flavor is hard to beat.

Cajun: The grand daddy of them all, Tabasco red pepper sauce! My wife and I actually made a 'pilgrimage' to Avery Island Louisiana to appreciate this fabled product up close and personal. Avery Island is actually the tip of a prehistoric salt dome that sticks out of the bayous. Fascinating place and worth the trip.

Southern and low-country cuisine: I love Crystal hot sauce the best because it gives tremendous flavor without a lot of heat and it is reasonably priced.

For the most part, I'll go along with your choices. I like all of those, too.

Two other general purpose sauces I like are Tabasco Chipotle Sauce and Sriracha. I also keep a jar of Sambal Oelek in the fridge to kick up Chinese takeout a little.

No surprises here. Tabasco Original, Green and Chipotle. Frank's for wings. Sambal Olek, Sriracha and chili oil for Asian.

I have a love affair going with Tabasco Chipotle, it transforms eggs to a new level. And I really like Shark Sriracha and Franks.

I like Texas Pete for general use, Tapatío for Mexican, and sriracha or Thai sweet chili sauce for Asian. I want to try sambal oelek but I forgot to buy it the last time I was at the Asian grocery store.

Xni Pec, Gochujang, Kimchi Base, Sambal Oelek, Sriracha, Crystal, Tabasco (both original and Jap), Franks, Chipoltle in Adobo and Dave's Insanity (used very sparingly). There are others I haven't tried, I'm sure!

Not a fan of Crystal, but I do like the Tabasco sauces.

I also like Crabanero on seafood. I also use Frank's wing sauce for my wings usually and Nando's hot sauce as well.

I bought Dave's Insanity hot sauce for DH, but it's hotter than we like. We use it occasionally, and sparingly, but it's been in the fridge for a while

Tabasco, original, jalapeno and chipotle. I like the chipotle in my V-8 juice the best!

Shrek likes Cholula and the Tabasco's.
