Tia Lupita Hot Sauce
Tia Lupita's Hot Sauce is an authentic, small-batch version of the classic red hot sauces you'll find at every taco truck or taqueria. Made with only eight ingredients and absolutely no preservatives, the moderately spicy sauce has a bright chili flavor, vinegary tang and stand-out oregano notes that perfectly complement the red jalapeño chilies. Whereas many hot sauces forego dried spices because they can overpower chili peppers' fresh flavor, the oregano in Tia Lupita's sauce is balanced to perfection and makes up part of its core character. Hector Salvidar named his company after his mother, the original Tia Lupita, and her namesake sauce is made to this day according to her original recipe.
Use Tia Lupita Hot Sauce as a complex alternative to big names like Tapatío or Cholula as a condiment for tacos, burritos and other Tex-Mex and Mexican favorites. We also like this sauce in marinades to brighten fatty cuts of pork or as a finisher for meats cooked low and slow. Toss some sauce with pulled pork or chicken instead of barbecue sauce to complement their roasted, smoky flavors.
