The Four Best Chili Sauces

As any chili sauce enthusiast knows, a lot goes into making a truly great sauce. It’s not all about making it as hot as possible, though that certainly plays a part. Instead, it’s all really all about how the various flavours within the sauce combine, both to make it a great standalone product in addition to ensuring it mixes well with a variety of other foods.

Of course, with so many sauces out there it can be really tough to pick out the ones that you think are the absolute best. To help you along, we have compiled a list of four great chili sauces that we think everybody should try.

Henry’s Hot Sauce Carolina Reaper

Henry’s Hot Sauce makes a variety of different sauces, so you are sure to find something there that will suit your taste buds. For us, though, it has to be the sauce the company makes using the infamous Carolina Reaper chili. The Henry family cultivates all of its own ingredients at its farm, which means you know you’re getting something exceptional and natural when you buy one of their products. As for this sauce, it is one of the absolute hottest around and will provide a very stern challenge to anybody who thinks they have what it takes to eat the hottest sauces. Better yet, it tastes great too.

Valentina Salsa Picante

A Mexican staple for the better part of forty years, you are likely to see this particular sauce in practically any food establishment in the country. A nice mix of chilies, salt, spices, and vinegar creates a fairly substantial and thick source that focuses more on flavour rather than hotness. It’s ideal for people who like the classic sweet and sour mix. However, don’t go in unprepared. Even if the focus isn’t on heat, you may find some hotness sneaking up on you when you least expect it.

Crazy Uncle Jester’s Spontaneous Combustion

Make way Tabsaco, because this sauce is here to really knock some people’s socks off. Made using the infamous habanero peppers, the sauce actually stuffs an entire bushel of the things into the bottle, making it extremely hot. This is purely one for people who enjoy the challenge of eating the hottest sauce possible, though at the same time it by no means has a bad flavour to it either. It gives a pretty extreme taste of the American state of Louisiana, but it is definitely worth your time.

Huy Fong Chili Garlic

Made in 1980 by David Tran, who has a few other very good sauces to his name, this chili garlic mixture is absolutely delicious and goes with practically any meal. Some people may be a little put off by its thickness, which means you can’t exactly slather it all over your food. However, with a little bit of patience, and perhaps a spoon, you will soon find yourself absolutely falling in love with it. We also recommend taking on some of David Tran’s other sauces to get the full experience of what he has to offer.
