My oldest could literally drink this stuff–and she does. Splashed on sandwiches, nachoes, soups, she even put a few drops on her chocolate cake a few weeks back.

Cholula is common in Mexico–people serve it as you would ketchup in the US. The flavor is a tangy, vinegary blend of spices that give meals a kick not just of hot, but also chile flavor. It’s like Tabasco sauce with more depth.

You can find cholula at the grocery store in regular, chipoltle, and jalepano. Around our house, we like them all. So the next time you have hot sauce on your shopping list, why not reach for cholula instead?

Hint: Toss a little in the next time you make potato salad.
