TABASCO brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce is made from select smoked red jalapeño peppers and has a smooth, rich smoky flavor. And it's our first pepper sauce that you can sprinkle on like a condiment, or really pour on like a steak sauce or marinade!
You can dash it on drop-by-drop, but you can also use a generous amount to marinate chicken, steak, pork and more – because it's not just about adding heat, it's about adding great smoky flavor. It's the perfect sauce for marinating and grilling to your heart's content.
A Flavorful History
Before the time of the Aztecs, ancient Mexican civilizations prized the chipotle pepper for its dark, smoky flavor. Using a centuries-old method, vine-ripened red jalapeño peppers are slow-smoked to perfection over a smoldering fire, and the peppers produce a rich, thick-bodied sauce ideally balanced in heat and flavor.
Not too hot, and not too mild, the result is a smoky, flavorful sauce that'll make you want to fire up the grill – and it's great for grilling flank steak, fajitas, hamburgers and vegetables. Its heat level is in between that of TABASCO brand Garlic Pepper Sauce and Original TABASCO brand Pepper Sauce, and its Scoville Unit Rating is 1500-2500.
