In praise of a sauce by name Cholula
of piquant chili sour and spicy savor,
spread tonight on scrambled eggs,
nestled in sweet corn tortillas,
bedded on sharp cheddar cheese.

Ah, such delights as lips that still tingle,
fingers and palm and chin blessed by titian oils.
Make clean my sin of a venial plate.

Oh, Cholula bottle, if only this tongue knew fully
the name by which I call you
we could while away the evening hours,
but I am monolingual,
and you are, sadly, empty.

Sorry, all I have to offer is Lousiana Hawt Sauce.

If ever I could be tempted, that moment is now, but, in truth, my heart shall ever be Cholula's.

I know I'm a week late commenting here, but just had to tell you. I grinned at this, and then by chance, we were sitting at a dinner place this week and lo and behold there it was! Cholula! I thought, HEY Silli needs you!

This is a hot sauce I have been unfamiliar with, not sure why as it is from Mexico and goodness knows half my hometown is from Mexico, but I think it's because the food I grew upon that might include such flavoring usually had it's own kick and didn't need extra flavor. I could see it's use on the "Mexican" food we have in Denver however!

Anyway, so we're sitting there and we decided to taste some. Reminded me of Tabasco. My middle son says, "Oh that's not that hot....AHHHHHHHHHHH!" Apparently he spoke too soon! LOL. Anyway, have a lovely day! :D

D'oh! Cholula! I forgot to put it on the grocery list yesterday. *runs to whiteboard on fridge to add it* There!

*snork* about your middle boy.

Just catching up, and I must say, girlfriend - you are one daft, dear creature! LOL!

I'll never look at Cholula the same again. ;-) (Though it eats holes in my tummy, so it's up to Tye to sample.)
Cheers ~
