PhilDelmar, Try requesting it at your market. It has been here in the Louisville area for a couple of months (that I have seen) but not all the supermarkets stock here either.
And a camouflage Tabasco holster.
I have been using it for years. It is quite good sprinkled on tortilla chips. (with beer to wash them down)[:p]
I also like the garlic Tabasco. It is a little milder, and is useful for when you just want to liven up a sandwich or something, just a little bit.
Greg – you are my hero!
It, and the habenaro, is also very good on vanilla ice cream.
Has anybody seen the product in the Delaware area? if so, where?
I love that stuff, and at his request I’ve been shipping bottles every couple of months to my grandson in Korea. It seems the commissary at Camp Humphreys doesn’t stock that version.
OK, I don’t endorse stuff often, nor rave about an individual condiment, but I have to say something nice about the TABASCO Smoked Chipotle Sauce that is now on the market in this area. Packaged in the usual Tabasco bottle and box, but with Smoked Chipotle on the label and with a brown tinge to the label and box, it is making it’s way into markets in this area.
We have used the traditional Red Label since forever ago. We use the Green label now and then…not as often. BUT Now that the smokey flavor is here, out goes the old steak and most BBQ sauces (for dipping) and the "Dales" for brushing on …and the Worcestershire for most of it’s previous applications.
I really like the flavor of this new version of Tabasco. Not as hot..Not as "vinegary" but with a unique flavor that is worth investigating.
If you haven’t tried some, I suggest that a bottle in the kitchen or on the table will be well worth the investment.
Happy New Year!
…just purchased my first bottle of Tabasco Smoked Chipotle sauce, and it is fantastic! my tastes echo many of the posters on this thread – i’ve got Tabasco green and Cholula in my ‘frig too. also good is Melinda’s Mango Hot sauce, which is great on chicken, fish and pork…hmmm, maybe i should try it on vanilla ice cream?![:p]
Tabasco claims it can charge more because you don’t
have to use as much, so it last longer. It’s def
hotter than most national brands. I love the original,
the Chipotle and the Habanero, which is really to hot
for me…but I love the sweet fruitiness of it.
I really love the stuff, too. I use it instead of the traditional tabasco. I switch off between Chipotle, Cholula, and Pico Pica. all are great on eggs, tacos, soups, stews, anything where you want an extra kick of flavor.
I wonder if Tabasco was feeling the "heat" from just-up-the-road competitor Bruce Foods. I use their Louisiana Gold hot sauce for flavor. If I need large quantities of hot sauce, I buy Crystal, now produced just south of US61 in Reserve, LA. I can still get it on sale for just over a dollar for a 12 ounce bottle. I’m glad to see Tabasco is making more varieties of sauce for different tastes, and will try some of the smoked Chipotle Sauce.
Well, this is kind of an expansive topic. I visited the Tabasco operation at Avery Island several years ago. After the Garlic came out, but before the Chipotle. I like them all pretty well, for different things. Red for eggs. Green for hash browns. Garlic works on eggs, too.
Here’s what I don’t like about Tabasco: Price. I’ve said this somewhere else, at my local restaurant supply operation, Smart&Final, the large red Tabasco is over $5. For about a dollar, I can get two other same size Louisiana sauces, almost identical to Tabasco. Red Rooster, and Crystal.
My thing is that money is VERY tight for me at the moment, and when I see a bargain, I try it, and use every drop, even if it’s not my fave. What’s really interesting is the Latino supermarket nearby (Olympic & Soto, in East LA), where they have every imaginable dirt cheap Mexican salsa you can imagine. Not just canned stuff, but probably 30 different bottles. All sizes. Several different colors of habanero. I took a chance on a QUART bottle of, oh, I think it’s Valencia, for a dollar. It’s OK, I’ve seen it all over the eastside. The thing is, at these low prices, you can afford to experiment, then settle on one that’s both cheap and to your taste. They do carry Tabasco, but I doubt they sell much of it.
I really don’t like paying 4 or 5 times as much for name brands like Cholula and Tabasco, I use too much of this stuff.
With regard to the vinegar thing, well, I don’t know. I prefer pickled jalapenos, and pepperoncini.

I am in love with the Tobasco Chipotle Hot Sauce! We have had it our area for at least two or three years. I use it to marinate steaks with a little Worcestershire sauce. I use the green sauce for eggs and biscuits and gravy. The regular flavor I use for Bloody Marys only as the vinegar flavor is much too powerful for most foods.
