Smoke Without Fire: A Rich, Smoky Flavor
That’s Not Too Fiery Hot.

Even before the time of the Aztecs, ancient Mexican civilizations prized the chipotle pepper for its dark, smoky flavor. Now we’ve perfected our own method of smoking vine-ripened, red jalapeño peppers over a smoldering fire to make TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce—a rich, thick-bodied sauce ideally balanced in heat and flavor.

Barbecuing and beyond.

The smooth, smoky flavor of TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce is ideal for BBQ foods. Use a generous amount to marinate and grill steak, pork, chicken and vegetables.
In fact, adding a few drops to a dish is a great way to get that instant grilled flavor, without even firing up the grill! It gives a smoky sizzle to sides like mac & cheese, potato salad and baked beans.

Customers rave about our chipotle champ.

Loyal fans of TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce love its consistency—not too thick or too thin—and flavor—rich without the overly vinegary taste of other chipotle sauces. And to get an idea of how good TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce is for barbecuing, customers suggest thinking of the best BBQ sauce you’ve ever tasted and “kicking it up a few notches”!


The rich, smoky flavor of our chipotle sauce is like instant bbq flavor—with or without the grill.

  • Fold into sour cream for a light but savory taco topping.
  • Marinate chicken breasts with TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce to infuse them with a smoky sizzle.
  • Marinate seafood in TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce before breading and deep-frying. Suddenly tartar sauce is strictly optional!
  • Brush TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce on steaks, pork loins, kabobs or vegetables on the grill in place of BBQ Sauce. Add it to burger patties or meatloaf for smoky flavor.
  • Mix TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce with ketchup to make a smoky French-fry dip.
  • For a smoky cheese spread, pour a bottle of TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce over a block of cream cheese.
  • Stir some TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce into your favorite pimento cheese spread. It makes a great sandwich or celery stick filling.
  • Mayonnaise and ketchup, and the foods they go on, taste better when you combine them with TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce.
  • For a very tasty topping, use TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce along with butter or sour cream on baked potatoes.
  • While other TABASCO® Sauces wake up scrambled and fried eggs, TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce turns egg salad or deviled eggs into a smoky treat.

    Just tried the chipotle sauce....bit disappointed to be honest. None of the distinctive Tabasco flavour or heat. Read the back and found that it contains 1% of your unique barrel matured peppers....I guess that's the difference. I'm not saying its a bad product....just that the small bottle doesn't work for this sauce.....used about a quarter of it as a condiment in one meal. Whereas the original is also an excellent ingredient. Shame, but keep up the good work on the original.

    This has been my favorite sauce for a couple of years now. I even got the big gallon jar of it for my birthday recently! The flavor is outstanding and I find whenever I'm eating something without it - I'm missing it. It adds so much to food that if you haven't tried it - you should because it is truly a great addition to just about anything.

    Hi McIlhenny Company,
    I'm 67 years old and have enjoyed your sauces for many years
    I use Tobasco Habanero and Chipotle sauces frequently and thought I'd share a couple or recipe ideas with you and your clients.
    A cold but warming delightful drink:-
    In a large glass put in two table spoons of worcestershire sauce, a desert spoon of Tobasco Habanero sauce and a table spoon of malt vinegar then top it up with ice cold tomato juice; stir and savour this wonderful warming drink.
    Tomatoes on toast.
    In a saucepan empty two tins plum tomatoes, add a desert spoon of granulated sugar (this will reduce the acidity) and a teaspoon of sea salt, some mixed herbs, olive oil, a few grinds of black pepper and a desert spoon of Tobasco Chipotle sauce (more if you dare). Slowly reduce this to intensify all the flavours (about 15 mins simmering gently). Butter some thick toast and heap on your tomatoes and get stuck in! Mmm. (This recipe is also what I use as a base for making a chilli, a bolognaise and a curry and is wonderful served with mashed potatoes blended with cheddar cheese).
    Many thanks for the wonderful sauces.
    Yours, Eddy.
