Tapatio Salsa Picante Hot Sauce

Tapatio is a staple condiment for us here at TPF. It works well with eggs (any style), a great addition to pinto or re-fried beans and of course with carne asada, pollo asado or fish tacos. Tapatio also adds a nice kick for bloody marys and dirty martinis.

Tapatio is not the only hot sauce we use, but for salsa picante it is delicious!

Huy Fong’s Sriracha Hot Chili Paste

Huy Fong's Sriracha Hot Chili Paste

Sriracha "Rooster" Sauce is a favorite with our crew. Sriracha tastes great with fries (regular or sweet potato), soup or broth, and as a dip for grilled meats. Use sparingly at first until you have an idea of the heat intensity that Sriracha has, but once you know, you will find a groove for the flavor and add a spot for Sriracha in your fridge.

Check out your local Vietnamese restaurant and you will usually find Sriracha on the table; one great use of Sriracha is adding it as a spice kick to the broth for Vietnamese Pho Tai.

Sriracha is a product of Huy Fong Foods in Rosemead, CA.

Add butter to frying pan with medium-low heat and fry two eggs. While eggs are cooking, shred cheese. When eggs are done, remove from pan and add tortillas to the pan to heat.
