Are any of you familiar with this tasty Mexican hot sauce? Out of all the hot sauces I find myself always buying this one and I really enjoy it. It is really flavorful and has plenty of heat. I use it on everything from Pizza, Eggs, soup, and seafood.

  1. It's my current favorite to throw on anything non Asian.

    1. Try Tapatio on hot, buttered corn on the cob. A dash of it in chicken flavor ramen noodle soup is very tasty. Can't find Tapatio here in Middle Tennessee, I have to order it online.

      1. A friend raved about it so much I finally bought a bottle for taco night. We really liked it. It's completely different from our usual hot sauces.

        1. I wasn't sure about buying Tapatio, but it was only 89 cents so i couldn't pass it up. Then my Mexican friend said this is the one she prefers and uses at home. I was not disappointed. :o)

          1. It's my favorite! It's so funny, because a couple of years ago, when we were living on a pretty extreme budget, I bought it because it was the cheapest on the shelf! Little did I know, it would be my favorite on the shelf too!

              My favorite, too. I like it sprinkled on stuffed peppers and lots of other things. It has just the right amount of kick that I like. I read about it here months ago. Unlike a lot of hot sauces, it contains no vinegar.

                It's perfect in creamy soups, especially clam chowder.

                  Funny. I just made a pretty lack luster potato/corn chowder, and remembered this topic. I gave my bowlful a few shots of Tapitio and it sparkled it right up. Added several more shakes to the pot!

                  The ingredient list has acetic acid listed fourth. Acetic acid is vinegar.
