Cholula Hot Sauce

     Providing a tantalizing taste adventure for the hot sauce lover, Cholula hot sauce seethes with the robust flavor of piquin peppers, chile arbol, and other unique spices that complement the natural flavor of foods. Known as the "flavorful fire," Cholula is a versatile and addicting sauce that can deliciously regenerate such ordinary foods as omelets, soups, meats and even alcoholic drinks like Bloody Marys, without the sometimes harsh bite of Tabasco sauce.

Makers of Cholula have created three other kinds of their sauce in addition to the original recipe. These are:

  • Cholula Chipotle hot sauce--a zesty combination of Cholula's "flavorful fire" and the sweetly smoky taste of Chipotle peppers.

  • Cholula Chili Garlic hot sauce-- a blend of ground, fresh garlic and that "flavorful fire" which infuses pizza, chicken and soups with a taste only a "straight from hell" hot sauce can especially give to foods.

  • Cholula Chili Lime hot sauce--in addition to the savory taste sensation of their original hot sauce, Cholula adds a delicious suggestion of tangy lime to this recipe that makes eating tortilla chips and seafood seem like a scrumptious dream.


History of Cholula

     Cholula is the name of a 2,500 year old city in Mexico that originally meant "the place of retreat" in pre-Hispanic language. As a popular hot sauce in regional areas, Cholula rapidly expanded its fan base into larger cities where it eventually became recognized by its trademark wooden cap and bright yellow label. Perfected in the small town of Chapala which is near Guadalajara, Cholula hot sauce has been enhancing the flavor of food for nearly four generations in Mexico and made its way to American tastebuds about ten years ago.
