Description:Official: "Cholula Hot Sauce Original is all about Flavor, Fire and Fun. More than any other Hot Sauce, Cholula's delicious blend of piquin peppers, chile arbol and signature spices enhances food flavors without overpowering them."
It's a classic label that's been so consistent over the years. It's not exciting, or shocking as some newer brands, but it doesn't need to be. When you pick up a bottle of Cholula you know what you're going to get.
Very consistent blend with a smooth even texture. This sauce pours fast, and spreads easily.
Mostly vinegar, but with a hint of spice.
A smooth blend of vinegar and piquin peppers. It's on the milder side, but without being watery.
Not a lot of heat. If you are a hot sauce enthusiast you will probably find this one lacking in the punch department.
Cholula is a classic, and it deserves to be. It's a great blend of traditional sauce flavors. I find it to be a step up from Tabasco which tends to be to heavy on the vinegar for my taste. It's not terribly hot, but that means it can go with more things since it's not overpowering. A solid choice when you want to add a hint of spice to your tex mex dish.
