All of the Tapatio Products You May Not Have Known Exist

Tapatio is one of the best hot sauces on the market. Its well-rounded, piquant flavor packs such a bunch that it beat almost every other hot sauce we tried in our hot sauce taste test. It may not have taken the top slot, but it did beat out both Cholula and Valentina in terms of taste. Luckily, lovers of Tapatio don’t have to stop at the sauce itself.

Tapatio makes a ton of products that you might not know exist (but definitely need in your life). Here is a list of delicious, Tapatio-flavored items that you can currently buy at your local grocery store.

Tapatio sells instant ramen and I can’t think of a more perfect collaboration. These big bowls of noodles come in four flavors: Original, Shrimp, Chicken, and Extra Spicy. We sampled them in our ramen taste test and they were so delicious; lightly spicy and super savory. I recommend stocking your pantry with these.

Tapatio Picante Seasoning

This Tapatio-flavored powder sprinkled over buttered popcorn is just about the most delicious thing I can imagine. But popcorn is just the start. This stuff works on grilled chicken, elote, and egg salad. How about a Tapatio-flavored shrimp boil?! If you’re feeling extra Tapatio-y, you could sprinkle this over your Tapatio Noodle Soup. Honestly, this could be sprinkled on pretty much anything. The possibilities are endless!

Tapatio Marinades

If you want Tapatio flavor in your food rather than just on your food, grab some of these Tapatio marinades the next time you’re at the store. They come in two versions: Citrus Pollo Asado and Traditional Carne Asada. These make for a super easy weeknight supper for any Tapatio enthusiast. Just toss a packet of this sauce and some meat into a crockpot and you have an effortless, spicy meal.

A spicy pickle is already great, so I can only imagine a pickle spiced with one of my favorite hot sauces is basically perfect. Plus, who doesn’t love these pickles in a bag? If I pulled up to a gas station stocking these, I would simply freak.

Tapatio Nuts

Looking to spice up your cheese board? Or need a zesty afternoon pick-me-up for a burst of protein-packed energy? Tapatio sells seasoned nuts for your snacking pleasure. They come in mixed nuts, mixed nuts with lime, and peanuts with lime. Spicy trail mix, here I come!

Tapatio Doritos

If you know anything about Sporked, you know that we love Tapatio Doritos. We cannot stop talking about them. They were at the top of our list of the best Doritos flavors and we snack on them in the office regularly. These are, hands down, the best Tapatio collaboration and we will not stop preaching the good word of Tapatio Doritos until everyone knows their wonder!

  • I first tasted Tapatio Doritos on a road trip and it took nearly three years for them to come to my local midwest grocery stores. Delicious chips and I’ve had most of the rest here, but clearly there is more work yet to do. Gotta find that picante seasoning!
