Caleb and I love hot sauce.

We often joke about how we have more sauces and condiments in our fridge than actual food. At any given time we have at least 7 or more different types.

We put hot sauce on everything; pizza, potatoes, eggs, avocado toast, sandwiches, tater tots, bbq, burritos, … you get it. We love trying new hot sauces and are always excited when we go to restaurants that have unusual ones OR (even better) when they have their own homemade sauces!


We thought it would be fun to do a round-up with 10 of our favorite hot sauces that we want you to try!

So here you go, with Caleb’s help, we’ve laid out where to buy them, what to shake it on, and how much you may or may not cry. 

Seriously, we insist you go get at least one of these and try it tonight.
