Cholula Hot Sauce always makes food more exciting. The uniquely crafted blend of authentic spices makes Cholula Hot Sauce your secret ingredient to enhance the flavors of your favorite foods without dominating them. That means your party snacks will have that added touch to really take them over the top. Cholula Hot Sauce is the delicious result of a generations old recipe and a rich Mexican heritage. The success of Cholula Original has paved the way for four additional varieties, each featuring a memorable taste experience to elevate the taste and flavor of your recipes. Take chicken tenders, for example. Sure you can go the lazy route and order in from your local diner. Boring! Did you know you could create a homemade version that is super simple and super flavorful? All it takes is a few key ingredients like lime juice, Cholula Original, spices, and some beer and you’ve got a marinade that will both tenderize and infuse your Tangy Grilled Tenders with flavor.Grill tenders instead of frying them for a healthy touch and top with a spicy homemade honey glaze. This recipe is a great way to provide guests with something familiar that has suddenly been made special.


Bruschetta topped crostini is another fan favorite when it comes to party finger foods. Create a Mexican version of this appetizer by enhancing it with lime juice, Cholula Chili Lime, guacamole, and cotija cheese. This Mexican Bruschetta is another party food you can prep ahead of time and just plate when your guests arrive for maximum flavor and freshness without added work. For a refreshing cocktail to pair with your spiced up snacks, offer some chilled cava, prosecco, nonalcoholic cider, or sparkling tea for guests to toast with at midnight.


There’s nothing easier than putting out a plate of veggies and chips for guests to snack on. Make your dip the best thing they’ve eaten all year by ditching the canned ranch version and making a Cholula Chili Garlic Dip that is spiced up with Cholula Chili Garlic and fresh garlic cloves. Just mix 1 cup of mayo, 4 pressed garlic cloves, the juice of ½ lemon, 1 teaspoon of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of Cholula Chili Garlic together in a bowl. Mix well and season with salt and black pepper to taste. This dip keeps in the fridge for up to a week. So, if you’re hoping to give out favors, a mini mason jar of this dip with printed out index-sized recipe cards and a jar of Cholula Green Pepper would make the ultimate end-of-the-year goody bag. Add in a few hand-written inspirational quotes to keep your guests on track with their healthful resolutions for the New Year and you’ve capped the year off with the best party ever.
