Favorite everyday hot sauce: Cholula or Sriracha?
There's something satisfying about twisting off that classic wooden cap and letting the spicy aroma fill the air around you. Cholula's mystery blend features garlic and onion undertones with a tanginess that leaves you wanting more. Each flavor works in perfect harmony, and as one person puts it on Reddit:
It's my cinderella hot sauce. Not too hot, not to thin, great flavor, and it goes with almost everything.
Cholula is a mild hot sauce, so you can put it on really anything in your pantry; it's meant to bring out flavors in your favorite dishes, rather than overpower them with spice. Next time you grab your bottle, try putting it on fruit or popcorn–you're about to experience a whole new world!
Thrillist named Sriracha the No. 1 hot sauce on earth. Somehow, the spice gods have smiled down upon the geniuses behind Sriracha, enabling them to create a hot sauce that has the perfect amount of heat and is somehow a little sweet at the same time. Thrillist's Dan Gentile illustrates the world's addiction:
The assembly line cranks out 3,000 bottles an hour, 24 hours a day, six days a week. That's roughly 200 tons per week. They sell about 20 million bottles a year.
Sriracha adds a unique heat to all of your meals (according to Gentile, you can even put it on bananas), but it can also be a dish's main event. With a base of red jalapeños and garlic, even Sriracha cocktails are possible. Cheers!
