Salsa Tamazula, Guadalajara, MX (12-13-2018)

Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants generally have a variety of hot sauces for their patrons. This time, I was offered “Valentina salsa picante” with my meal.

A large one liter bottle of Valentina was tableside. A smaller bottle would be easier to manipulate but the sauce pours well with a creamy consistency. It’s not watery so it does not come flying out before you get the chance to get a small taste.

Peppers and vinegar combine nicely for a medium heat. It’s certainly cooler than straight Tabasco and rates at 900 on the Scoville scale. That’s hotter than Texas Pete and comparable to Cholula.

The label is a little all-over-the-place and while it’s easy enough to know that this is a spicy sauce, the various fonts and colors and even angled text make it challenging to consume. I would hope they’ll simplify in a future revision.

I’m not sure that I like the big bottle but the positive side is that it’s likely not going to get refilled out of some gigantic vat.
