12. Forge Verde Sauce
This mild, yet mean and green topper made from jalapeños and pobla is considered one of the best green pepper sauces around. Recommended with ribs, fried fish or carnitas tacos, but also great in a coleslaw dressing or rubbed on a chicken or pork loin before roasting.
For those who want to avoid buying plain old Tabasco, Crystal’s mild and vinegary taste has made it a “safe” tabletop feature at restaurant across the country. Founded in 1923 in Louisiana, it’s perfect for those who don’t want it spicy, but want something to pour on without worry.
