Summary

Cholula is one of my favorite hot sauces.

The heat level is a solid Medium which is hot enough to let you know that you have some peppers in your mouth but not enough to overpower your food.

The use of two types of peppers with some garlic brings a well rounded flavor profile.

Pros

Great Medium Heat

Balanced Flavors

Costco Value

Cons

The Bottle Eventually Runs Out

Cholula has been one of my favorite hot sauces for years and is a standard item in my pantry.  I was delighted when I spotted it being sold as a twin pack in oversized bottles.

Of course these beauties were coming home with me!

Cholula Hot Sauce Nutrition and Ingredients

Let’s take a closer look at what you get with these bottles of hot sauce.

Nutrition Facts

You get 12 ounces of sauce in each bottle.  One serving is a single teaspoon and there are about 72 servings per bottle.

The nutritional facts for a single serving are:

  • Calories: 0
  • Fat: 0g (0% DV)
  • Cholesterol: 0mg (0% DV)
  • Sodium: 110mg (5% DV)
  • Carbohydrates: 0g (0% DV)
  • Protein: 0g

One reason that I love hot sauces like Cholula is that they add so much flavor to feed without bringing any calories to the party.  This is in stark contrast to calorie laden sauces like Trader Joe’s Magnifique Sauce and Salt Lick’s Spicy BBQ Sauce.

Ingredient List

The sauce has the following ingredients:

  • Water
  • Arbol peppers
  • Piquin peppers
  • Salt
  • Vinegar
  • Garlic powder
  • Spices
  • Xanthan gum

How Does Cholula Hot Sauce Taste?

Cholula hot sauce is tangy and spicy, without being stupid hot, with a pleasing array of flavors.

The heat comes from two types of peppers, arbol and piquin, which is a nice change of pace from the single heat note that you get from cayenne pepper based Louisiana style hot sauces.

The garlic and other spices play secondary, but notable, roles to round out the profile.

Cholula Hot Sauce on a Chicken Wing

I eat a ton of this sauce for breakfast when I put it on scrambled eggs and grits.

It is equally as excellent on fried shrimp or catfish.

I do not use this sauce on beef or pork as I like Trader Joe’s Green Dragon Sauce for those proteins.

Reviews From Walmart Customers

I wanted to see what other people thought about this sauce so I checked out the customer reviews on Walmart.  There were 222 reviews for this sauce as of November, 2021 which is a pretty solid data set.

98% of all customers liked this sauce so much that they left 5 and 4 Star reviews.

Nobody was foolish enough to leave a one star review for this delightful sauce.  The lone 2 Star review was from a customer who had this delivered and it arrived broken.

Walmart Reviews of Cholula Hot Sauce

Some of the Positive comments left by Walmart customers include:

  • Very flavorful with a medium heat, It doesn’t just burn your mouth off it taste really good and the heat is not overcoming.
  • This is my favorite hot sauce. I use this on fries/hash browns like most people use ketchup lol so tasty.
  • Cholula goes with anything savory that needs a kick. Doesn’t have that overpowering vinegar taste like some hot sauces.
