Cholula Original Mexican Hot Sauce

Owned by the makers of José Cuervo tequila, Cholula is one of the bestselling 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]
