|Cholula Chipotle Wings|
I've got lots to share, and with it nearly being Christmas, lots more to come...so here's hoping for some consistent writing efforts (for a while anyway). When I last wrote in October, I had earlier in the week received a shipment of Cholula salsas picantes (hot sauces) to review. The Cholula has a wonderful flavor and for that I would recommend it; but if you are looking for heat, you'll want to look elsewhere. I found the original to be a wonderful addition to a fried egg on toast (Christopher's comment- "You want some egg with your hot sauce?"). The Chili Garlic we sprinkled on our Pasta de Picadillo where it added a very nice note. The Chili Lime I'm not to sure of, I'm going to have to try it with some chicken or fish. The Chipotle I found to be very tasty, with just a touch of sweetness to set off the smokiness. This one I have found particularly enjoyable sprinkled on cheese pizza. Remembering how much I liked the chipotle maple sauce I had tossed my oven baked wings with, I decided to try the Cholula Chipotle as a wing sauce. I took some crispy wings from the oven and tossed them in the Cholula, no butter or anything else added, and this was indeed a wonderful use for the sauce, and it could not have been any easier. If you are looking for a "hot" sauce with a lot a flavor but a mild heat, Cholula is a must try.
