TABASCO® Original Red Sauce
Information: TABASCO® Sauce is the original pepper sauce created by Edmund McIlhenny in 1868 that blends with everything it’s added to, accenting flavors and never masking them.
TABASCO® Sauce is made from three natural ingredients: tabasco pepper mash aged in white oak barrels, a small amount of salt and high-quality vinegar. The result is a finished pepper sauce that adds much more than just heat.
Suggested Usage: TABASCO® Sauce livens up almost any recipe or dish. It’s a classic ingredient in steak tartar and the iconic Bloody Mary. More recently, it’s received attention as a delicious addition to eggs, pasta sauces and pizza.
TABASCO® Green Sauce
Information: TABASCO® Green Sauce delivers great tangy flavor. It is made from mild green jalapeño peppers mixed with vinegar and salt. While lower on the heat scale than TABASCO®
Sauce, TABASCO® Green Sauce adds a signature zest to a variety of dishes and recipes.
Suggested Usage: TABASCO® Green Sauce enhances a variety of dishes without the bother of seeding, slicing or chopping jalapeño peppers. It’s a staple flavor of Mexican food and also can be used in anything from seafood to vegetables, dressings and fruit. A few dashes gives new zip to margaritas and piña coladas.
TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce
Information: TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce is made with vine-ripened, red jalapeño peppers smoked over an open pecan wood fire.
After smoking, the peppers are combined with tabasco pepper pulp, a blend of natural spices, vinegar, salt and water. The result is a rich, smoky sauce with a full-bodied flavor and moderate heat.
Suggested Usage: TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce is a natural fit for BBQ sauces and marinades, not to mention chili and soups. Add a dash to your next dish to get the “grilled” flavor without striking a match. It complements steak and meat dishes well. Try adding a dash to a michelada recipe.
TABASCO® Habanero Sauce
Information: TABASCO® Habanero Sauce is the hottest sauce in our family of flavors. It’s a Jamaican-style hot sauce made from super hot habanero peppers blended with mango, papaya, tamarind, banana, ginger and ground black pepper. The result is a fruity yet fiery balance that adds Caribbean flair to any dish.
Suggested Usage: Just a few drops of TABASCO® Habanero Sauce adds
an adventurous zip to marinades and BBQ sauces and brings out some big flavors in salsas and stews. Whether it’s Cajun, Mexican, Caribbean, Asian or African food that’s calling your name, our TABASCO® Habanero Sauce delivers the fire with the flavor.
TABASCO® Garlic Sauce
Information: TABASCO® Garlic Sauce is a three-pepper blend—smooth cayenne, aged tabasco pepper mash and mellow red jalapeño—infused with the savory taste of garlic.
Milder on the heat scale, this sauce perfectly balances the flavors of peppers and garlic.
Suggested Usage: TABASCO® Garlic Sauce is a delicious addition anywhere to any recipe that calls for garlic. Whether it’s pizza and pasta or a dash on wings and dips, TABASCO® Garlic Sauce appeals to those who
like bold flavors with just a little heat.
