    I really enjoy hot sauce that adds flavor, not just heat, to a dish. I prefer Mexican-stye hot sauce such as Tapatio and Melinda's.

    Any suggestions for a good flavorful sauce?

    I'm in the midst of a Sriracha kick right now.
    I put that #!%* on everything! Deviled eggs after Easter, pizza, chips, hamburger helper... anything. Thought about putting it on carrot cake last night, but I refrained. Still think it might work without the icing though.
    Unfortunately, the new Lays Sriracha chips just don't taste the same as doing it yourself.

    I do the Sriracha if I want spicy. Lately, I've been using the Tobasco Chipotle variety if I want mild heat, but a smokier flavor...sometimes, I prefer it to salsa on chips.

    I too am a fan of hot flavors but I don't get along with the vinigars thay add in sauces. My solution is to dry Habineros and grind them up seeds and all in a coffee grinder (can no longer be used for coffee), and put the powder in a shaker bottle. Just tap a little out on everything I want. Dried Habies have a woody flavor that is just wondrful.

    I am a big fan of Tobasco.

    Franks Red Hot is really good on Eggs as well.

    Cheese Dip for Nacha Chip: 1 lb Hamburger (browned & drained), 2 can Campbells cheadr cheese soup, & 1 jar od Pace picante sauce (Hot). Do not add picante until cheese has melted down a bit in the Hamburger.

    You guys are making me hungry. ;)

    I have Tapatio and Cholula in the house now.

    Lived in India for a time as a kid - I love a good hot curry :D

    Mad Anthony hot sauce is great if you like a complex sauce. It is incredible with everything...

    Frank's Red Hot is my favorite "regular" sauce for eggs, red beans & rice etc...

    Famous Dave's Wilbur's Revenge sauce is my go to for BBQ - usually mixed with Devil's Spit.

    At my local wing place, they have a sauce called Killers (formerly Carribean Killers). It's got a citrus flavor to it. Very good when it's made well.

    For a chain place, I really like Buffalo Wild Wings Mango Habanero sauce. Flavor plus a slow burn.

    For home cooking, I have a variety of habanero-based sauces that I use. But it has to have flavor - pure heat is just a no-no.

    Shawn- you've GOT to pick up some Cholula and try it!!. Any grocery store will have it. I grow my own peppers, make my own hot sauces, and am a bit of a "hot sauce snob" of sorts, and in my humble opinion for a common, easy-to-find hot sauce, you can't get better than Cholula. It has a wonderful, slightly thick consistency, has a buttery mouthfeel, is very well-balanced, and is comfortably hot but won't kill ya. It is my "go-to" hot sauce for nearly any food, and I always have it around. http://cholula.com/

    And Cholula is very tasty!

    I'm a heat guy, so it's Dave's Total Insanity for me. Flavor is a Tabasco, or Famous Dave's thing. I kinda like the vinegar based ones, depending upon what I'm drinking with it. Vinegar=alcohol free.
