Cholula “Green Pepper” Login/Join

Cholula, the red “Original” version, has long been my favorite hot sauce. I go through a 12oz bottle in about two weeks. About the same heat as Tabasco, but tastes better to me. Also, it’s more viscous, so stays put on my eggs better than Tabasco.

Some time ago I noticed Cholula “Green Pepper” on my grocer’s shelf, but didn’t get around to trying it until recently. I like it! A bit zippier than the red, and a bit more viscous too, I think. But the flavor is much different than the red.

I still like the red better in some dishes, e.g., tomato soup, but the green better in others. Yeah, Green Pepper Cholula gets my recommendation.




Cognition?
On.

I like the original Cholula as well. If you're a member of Costco they sell two gigantic bottles for pretty cheap. I also like to use Sriracha sauce to spice things up.

Thanks for the short writeup! I have the Green Pepper, the Red, and I also keep the lime handy. It's SO good on all things chicken.

I liked Cholula, but then my "heat tolerance" surpassed it to the point it isn't even hot to me anymore.

Then I discovered Tapatio. Similar flavor to Cholula (less viscous though) and much higher "heat".

Don't know what I'll do if I reach the point that Tapatio becomes bland...

Cholula sent me a few coupons for free bottles a while ago when I got an off tasting bottle. I tried the green just for the hell of it. It’s now a staple and I use it as much as the red.




These go to eleven.

I love Cholula regular....
The Green is OK....
but my new favorite is CHOLULA CHIPOTLE!!!!!

Yes, that is a real thing. Not available in every store, though, I notice.

Haven't tried the Green Pepper. Do Like the original. Went to the web site. The Sweet habanero looks like it will be good on wings.

I saw Cholula Chipotle on the shelf the other day. I'll give it a try when I finish the current bottle of original.

Get the chipotle. Mild but very flavorful.

Yup, I recently got into the green, very good! I buy Tapatio for my regular hot sauce cause it is like 1/4th the price.

I’m a fan of all the Cholula sauces. I think my favorite is the chili garlic.

Put the green on your scrambled eggs in the morning. My favorite.

I have been a big fan of the Cholula red for many years....in fact, used some last night on a big plate of dirty rice. I buy it by the large bottles and always keep a spare or two. I like the flavor, but it is not hot to me. I have not seen the green as yet, and was at the grocery store yesterday. I will keep an eye out for it, and will definitely give it a try.

I love Cholula, Tapatio and a few others but my favorite by far is Rads. It's locally made and only carried in a few hole in the wall stores. It's aged and fermented in oak barrels for 5 months.

It's not very hot, but has a distinct flavor that doesn't exist anywhere else. No other hot sauce I've tried comes close.

I believe the green is aged in Bourbon barrels, and the red in new white oak barrels.

We keep a bottle each of green and red in the fridge at all times.
