Its not as hot as I would consider a “Hot Sauce” (its only 1,000 Scoville units) but it is a delicious addition to tacos and is my favorite quick way to improve otherwise bland food. It is loaded with flavor and has zero calories and only 110mg salt so is a very healthy option. - justAustin

You’ve got my vote. I can’t decide if I like the Chipotle flavor best, but only because I just tried the Chili Garlic for the first time... I can see myself keeping each on hand and using them for different dishes. - Quique Munners

Secret Aardvark

No surprise to anyone that reads this site, but we’ll give our personal nod to Portland’s own Secret Aardvark, which finished in a strong fifth position despite its regional nature.
