The closest I have done is some pepper powder and lime squeeze and used chips to scoop it out. Rustic guac.
Herdez Guac is the bomb.Supermarkets here don’t typically have a crazy selection
@PaulG , I WISH I could get readily grab that Secret Aardvark sauce at the grocery store! That stuff is deeeeee-licious!
@WarrantMan , by the time I was in the military, they’d switched to Texas Pete’s I’ve never tried Trappey’s.
For the “usual suspects” at our grocery stores, I really like the chipotle sauces from Tabasco and Cholula. Once in a while I can find Melinda’s. I like their Scotch Bonnet and Mango Habanero sauces. The one time I saw High River’s “Tears of the Sun” sauce on the shelf, I grabbed 3 bottles, especially after hearing @Edmick rave about it. Glad I did too, because it’s freakin’ awesome. Walkerswood makes a pretty damn good jerk sauce/paste/marinade too, that (I believe) comes in a couple different heat levels.
@The Hot Pepper , I’ve never tried that Herdez Salsa Verde sauce but, their Guacamole Salsa sauce is off the charts good! Super creamy and great on Mexican food. Label says it’s mild, but it packs a little bit of kick from the poblanos in there:
Their taqueria roja (no heat) sauce is pretty tasty, and their taqueria chipotle one isn’t too bad
For hot wing sauce, I always go for a local favorite from Connecticut; Archie Moore’s Buffalo wing sauce. Another thick, creamy sauce that’s a staple in my fridge:
I just found this sauce in the store a few months ago, and it’s really tasty! Goes well on just about anything. (No, this pic isn’t a hot sauce but) They make a Buffalo sauce infused version of this stuff that’s purdy darn good too (same style bottle but different color scheme on the label, if I’m remembering that correctly)
Besides the classics like Trappey's, Sriracha, Cholulah etc, (not a fan of Tabasco) My FAVORITE is a can of pickled peños with carrots and onions (escabeche) , dumped into a blender and puréed until smooth. I put that sh*t on everything. Same thing with chipotle in adobo. Sofa King good!
