a little outside of the traditional, but I like Melinda's Amarillo (it has mustard) particularly with Cuban food. it has the advantage of not overpowering wine, but is not just red hot sauce for sure.

Linda, there isn't a Melinda's flavor I dislike. The Amarillo is good if you like that yellow mustard style. Melinda's uses a vegetable base for their sauce instead of simply salt, peppers, and vinegar.

It is quite expensive ($25), but Tabasco Reserve is a really nice sauce. No less vinegary than the regular, but it just tastes so much more assertive and tasty. Is it 7x better than the regular? Probably not, but when you consider how many applications you get from a bottle, it is really not that expensive.

I like the Reserve a LOT better than the regular Tabasco.

The one that we always reach for is Sriracha irrespective of how many other artisanal sauces we have in the house.

Here is a thought. Add a few drops of the hottest sauce you can find or add some cayenne or habanero powder to Franks until it comes up to snuff for your preferred heat level. I doubt either method would change its taste.

tabasco on things like home fries, black bean soup
tapatio or cholupa on most mexican/tex mex fare
sriracha on most asian fare,eggs, mac and cheese...
For some dishes, i.e thai curries I like sambal (red chile paste)

I like Pico Pica

I also like a little sprinkle of Smoked Red Savina from time to time

Otherwise I'm okay with tabasco or tapatio or cholupa

I don't care for sriracha though

Sriracha seems to be de rigeur as an accompaniment to pho, and that's about the only time I use it.

The Mexican places out here usually have it in green and red on the table along with Tapatio.
The El Yucateco Green Habeñero is too damn tasty. Packs a pretty big punch so for me it is a fine line about how much to use on a taco.

While the El Yucateco maybe be my favorite, we got through massive amounts of tapatio, and medium amounts of tabasco. End the various others that rotate. For Buffalo Shrimp, my wife likes Franks. I think because it is so salty.

When I worked at Marty's the gourmet department had something like 100 different hot sauces and I've tried through a number of the super hot ones as well as all the Dave's Insanity/Melinda's lines. There is certainly enough of a selection in my area that I no longer feel the need to go much out of my way for the esoteric ones and I stick to the basics.

I just finished up a bottle of Tapatio at work and replaced it with a bottle of Original Louisiana. Most of these are pretty cheap. I can get a 10oz bottle of Tapatio for about $3.

Another interesting recent find, Valentina from Guadalajara, only $1.39 for a 12.5oz bottle.

Valentina is a very nice sauce!

I always have lots of hot sauces in the fridge. I use different sauces for different things. Right now I have the all these in the fridge:

Cholula - usually breakfast
Tapatio - tacos and dinners
Tabasco Chipotle - chili
Tabasco - lots of stuff
Tabasco Green - lots of things
Franks - chicken
Crystal - lots of things
Sambal Oelek - marinades
Sriracha - marinades
Yucatan Sunshine - lots of things

I just found at Trader Joe's their Sambal Matah, an Indonesian condiment with shallots, garlic, lemongrass, and peppers. Man, that's tasty, with a perfect amount of heat and nice balance of flavors.

i'm going to put a vote in for El Pato.

found it in most supermarkets, and it's on the bottom shelf of the "Mexican food" isle (at least in Safeway in NorCal).

it says "tomato sauce" on the packaging, but it's really more than that. got some zip without being overpowering.

We usually have in the house:

Cholula
Tabasco Chipotle
Tabasco Green
Sriracha
Mina Harissa
Paste made by blendering a can of Chipotle en Adobo
Either homemade or jarred Nam Prik Pao.

I don't eat nearly as spicy as I did when I was younger. Still love spicy food, but my stomach can't handle it as well.

Scorned Woman . . . as in "Hell hath no fury" is a good one. It is actually a little too hot for me but it has more complex flavors than just heat. There is a smokiness and meaty component to it. I also got a bottle of chocolate habanero at Pepper Palace in NOLA that was excellent. I commend Pepper Palace to anyone in NOLA. They have the largest collection I have ever seen and you can taste dozens of them.

I realize the premise of this ancient thread is that Tabasco is "too vinegary". But.....after trying lots and lots of hot sauces...and having my sons try even more and opine...I am "back" to Tabasco: red, original; green; chipotle. To me they add the most complexity to the mix with good balance. So many of the competing chipotle sauces (particularly the Mexican ones) are very sweet, I've found.

I know "all the world's a circle" as the late, great Harry Chapin sang, but I am surprised to have returned to where I started as the most consistently satisfying for me: the Tabasco lineup.(Though I still like the one Bob posted above, Sambol Oleke, for adding to some dishes, rather than hot sauce, per se.) My kids seem to favor Sriracha. ( To me, it it more about heat and veggies than balancing acidity, but....).

Thoughts on whether Tabasco is still the flagship lineup?

Yeah, one hot sauce is not enough.

Franks is for football watching buffalo chicken wings and thus gets used more than anything else in the house. Have a bottle so big, from Costco, it draws laughter.
Momofuku type food gets rooster sriracha. And if you're not making buns and bo ssams, start.
Mexican food gets cholula, over tapatio. And Cholula is the answer to the OP's question. Cholula has become the all around go-to hot sauce. As someone said, if I had to choose one. It's delish.
And cajun gets louisiana or crystal.

I haven't tried em all, but I've pretty much written off tabasco brand. (allowing for the possibility I'll return to it someday, but can't truly envision it) And although I have pepper extract bottles in the house, I don't consider them food. They're a toy.

I don't get the love for Tapatio; you see it in many Tacquerias here and I do have some at home-it's so cheap. I know it's been mentioned many times in this thread but really, when it comes to South of the Border, it's Cholula. I love it.

Do not write off Tabasco green. Yum. Hell, I'll always love the original. I've moved away many times but always come back for more.

For Louisiana style hot sauce, maybe not widely available but Livingston Parish from Amberfyre is ridiculous. If you don't have access, search high and low for it - it's more than worth it. It keeps it classic and redefines the style for me at the same time. Super geeky hot sauce stuff as far as I'm concerned.

Cholula is a crowd pleaser and a house favorite. Great universal sauce.

El Yucateco Green habanero sauce is also very good. They make a sauce called kutbil-ik that I picked up at a festival of some kind that I just opened up over the holiday. Very hot but the flavor is incredible - use sparingly but very, very good. Need to find more.

Wow, I'm literally drooling and my face is sweating just from reading this thread and looking at the pictures.

Many of my favorites have been mentioned above: Tabasco Green, El Yucateco, Cholula, chili garlic paste, etc.

For the OP (way back in 2012 or whenever) I would suggest the Texas Pete "hotter" version. Regular Texas Pete doesn't do it for me, but the hotter one's got plenty of heat.

On a recent vacation some guys were talking about "Ass Blaster" - one of those that's so ridiculously hot it's not practicable for human consumption. Apparently it lives up to its name. Not my style.

I've become of a big fan of this "curry" hot sauce. It's relatively mild, which is fine as I think most hot sauces obliterate the taste of the food you're eating.

Take a handful of jalapeño peppers, a handful of Serrano peppers (remove the end with stem), 3 or 4 good sized cloves of garlic, 2 green onions, a handful of cilantro, juice of one and a half limes, 1/4 Cup apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, a pinch of black pepper, a small pinch of oregano - put it in a blender, purée, add more salt or sugar to suit your taste, put in a 12oz glass bottle, refrigerate, and use. See if you want to continue using store bought hot sauce or if you now have the confidence to make your own fresher, tastier hot sauce.

You can dial the heat down by removing the seeds and ribs from all of the Serrano peppers, half of both peppers, or all of the peppers.

I like it with full heat.

From there, you can expand to other peppers and blends, make your own hot sauces customized to your palate and enthusiasm for heat.

So good. Made grilled tacos last night only to realize we were out, which is rare. Off to the store. Back in the late 80s, I had never seen in California but my favorite carnitas spot would always bring it up from Mexico. And so the addiction began.

Just did a trip to Jamaica and loved this stuff. This brand includes onions, scallions, garlic powder, and thyme. Very nice flavor along with the heat and you can still taste the food.

!Ay caramba! Never heard this til now. I wonder how significant 0.21 ppm really is in this one small study, but regardless, I'll have to think about this.

Rob, thanks for sharing that recipe. Gonna try some out!

Tried Tabasco Chipotle yesterday. Kinda like Scott... can't imagine what I'd choose that for. Didn't find it vile, as I do Tabasco, but not good. I don't like hot peppers in my bbq sauce for the same reasons.
