Cholula Chipotle Hot Sauce

Cholula Chipotle Hot Sauce

Cholula Hot Sauce is named after the 2500+ year old city in Mexico of Cholula, the oldest inhabited city in Central America , the name comes from the word “Cholloillan” meaning “the place of retreat”, the original Cholula Hot Sauces dates back to a secret (aren’t they all!) recipe that is over 100 years old.

The Chipotle version is relatively new to the range and the aim was to blend the smoky flavours of the Chipotle with the original savoury flavours of the original sauce.

The sauce comes in the traditional Cholula 5 oz / 150ml bottle, but with a brown tinted label and nice wooded cap covering the screw top.

Ingredients: Water, Vinegar (White & Apple), Sugar, Peppers (Chipotle, Guajillo, Arbol, Piquin), Salt, Natural Flavours, Spices, Xanthan Gun, Silicon Dioxide, Citric Acid & Caramel.

Bottle kindly supplied by www.hot-headz.com

The sauce smells smoky with a big dollop of vinegar, it is a dark brown colour and while not a thin sauce, it is smooth and pours well from the bottle, the first taste is Chipotle, but not as smoky as I was expecting, there is a nice after taste of smoke that leads to a slightly sweet, salty vinegar flavour.

This is very interesting taste, the ideal sauce for adding to nacho’s, it is not really a very hot sauce so it safe to leave it around the house as a general condiment, it is sure not to last long in our house.
