A question about a recipe: Pulled Pork Sandwiches

516c59c1 6865 447b bd0c 41a35159c7e5  dsc 0090

I have a question about the ingredient "bottle hot taco sauce" on the recipe "Pulled Pork Sandwiches" from mtlabor.

What is hot taco sauce? I wouldn't dare purchase anything like Taco Bell hot sauce (nasty!) I'm thinking something more natural/authentic like Valentina (Mexican) hot sauce. Any suggestions?

Yeah. Just go with a milder hot sauce, like Cholula or Crystal. They are my go-to's for "taco sauce".

Hey thanks for considering my pulled pork for your Super Bowl party! We have an awesome Latin American grocery store around the corner from our house that I purchased the taco sauce from. So if you have one around you, that's definitely your best bet - or your suggestion of the Valentina would be perfect as well (although I'd adjust the quantity a little bit - don't know if the whole bottle would be too hot or not!)

I have a problem with "a bottle of taco sauce" - what size? I would recommend a brand too. Tapatio?

It's easy enough to make your own if you have a food processor as the basic ingredients are simple. Choose dried peppers to your own taste and heat tolerance, a single variety or a blend. Scoville units are the measure of heat. Stem and seed your peppers. Put them in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let that rest for 1 to 2 hours. Drain them, give them a rough chop and put in the bowl of your processor. Add white vinegar to not quite cover (you can always add more later). Add a pinch of salt and maybe a dash of garlic powder. Gradually ratchet it up "liquefy". Taste and adjust seasoning.

Last summer I bought a basket of hot peppers at the farmers market and placed them whole inside an empty bottle of vinegar. I added peppercorns, garlic and salt. I keep it in the refrigerator and use it on my rice and beans and other dishes that need a little vinegary heat.
