Cholula Original Mexican Hot Sauce

Owned by the makers of José Cuervo tequila, Cholula is one of the best-selling condiments in the United States. Like Tabasco, Cholula is made with just a few premium ingredients – including red árbol chilies and pequin peppers, which are 13 to 40 times hotter than jalapeños on the Scoville spicy-heat scale. But Cholula regularly outdoes Louisiana-made hot sauces like Tabasco in taste tests, thanks to its authentic Mexican flavor and heat. [$5 for 12 oz; cholula.com]
