Tia Lupita Hot Sauce 8oz
Truly authentic hot sauce follows the principle that less is more: the biggest flavor comes from using just a handful of excellent ingredients. And here, the big flavor is heat. The red chili spice is not to be taken lightly, but for those who can handle it, they’ll find a flavor that is complex and balanced, thanks to a blend of cumin, oregano, garlic, and vinegar. It’s like a cross between a classic, thin, peppery hot sauce and the spiced complexity of an enchilada sauce. That means it’s quite diverse, excellent as a dipping sauce and also over pasta, tacos, eggs, quesadillas, soup, and much more.
Tia Lupita is known in her community for her ever present hair curler and her family’s hot sauce recipe. When her son moved from Mexico to the US, she’d ship him bottles for a taste of home. His friends soon tasted it, and they became insatiable. So the son got the mother’s blessing (and recipe) and began bottling her sauce. It’s just as authentically Mexican as it’s ever been, a family tradition passed down through generations and perfected with time. This is that sauce, and it goes great on everything from tacos to soups.
