No mention of Sriracha yet?

Oh well. Sambal Oelek is better anyhow. My favorite, though, is this intense fresh chili oil that has nothing but Chinese writing on the jar, so I have no idea what it's called...

Anyway, here's a sampling of what spiciness is available in mi casa...

1) Sriracha. Self-explanatory.
2) Sambal Oelek. Ground chilis, garlic, spices, and just a little vinegar.
3) Whole thai chilis.
4) Non-descript chili oil in a jar. Made from dried chili most likely.
5) Chili flakes. Important ingredient.

6) More non-descript chili-oil. This one came from the counter at a store. Very spicy, very good. You know dim sum chili oil? This is the Viet recipe, a lot hotter.
7) Another chili and garlic in oil variety. This one is sweeter, has a very round flavor and warmth.
8) Tobasco. Pretty straightforward.
9) Tapatio.
10) Pickled thai chilis.

11) More chili oil. This one is hotter than the last one, but not as hot as the one before that. This one is not the aforementioned favorite jar of hot sauce with chinese all over it, though it's pretty good.
12) Korean red chili bean paste. Mild, round flavor.
13) Smoked red chili paste, more earthy than the last one.
14) Excellent home-made chili oil with soya. Great as a dip, quite spicy. Very, very tasty.
15) Pickled jalapenos. Mexican-style. Yep.

Yeah, that stuff is good! I like Tapatio as well, but I prefer Cholula.

TO throw out others I like, I dig on sriracha, Taco Bell's "Hot", Crystal, Frank's Red Hot and Chipotle Tabasco.

I'm not a fan of tabasco because it's too vinegary. I feel like the last time I had Cholula it was on the vinegary side as well.

Siracha is the ultimate condiment.

Green tabasco.

I would agree with your assesment of cholula, but... sometimes I want a little more vinegary flavor with what I am eating. Sometimes I feel like cholula, tapatio, and sometimes Yucatan's habanero verde.

Also, cholula tends to separate sometimes.

I do not care for the regular tabasco except on eggs. The chipotle kind is good.

Mmm. The green kind is good, too.

So that's what you call it. There's been significant debate in my house over what that stuff is, other than ridiculously hot.

The sambal with the gold label doesn't taste as good as the clear bottle labelled "chili garlic sauce". IMO.


In a lot of Asian dishes, though, I really prefer the chili oils for spice rather than Western vinegary hot sauces.

Chili Garlic Sauce is the one that we have. That's not what we call it though.

I like Crystal - that's kind of my "house hot sauce". We have enjoyed experimenting with Mad Dog Inferno, which is a very hot hot sauce with a nice flavor, but it is a bit dangerous.

And for the purists out there, this is my favorite hot sauce -
