Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last century, you’ve heard of the famous Tabasco hot sauce. It is made in America and is arguably the most popular (and easily found) hot sauce on the planet. The tabasco pepper is the chili behind this tasty concoction and gives the hot sauce its name. With its medium heat and surprising juiciness (unlike any other chili), the tabasco chili has become a kitchen staple because of the wide variety of products in which it is found.
