Valentina is a brand of pourable hot sauce manufactured by Salsa Tamazula, a company in Guadalajara, Mexico. It is typically sold in 12.5-ounce and very large (one-liter or 34-ounce) glass bottles, with a flip-top cap permanently attached to the bottle (the cap does not unscrew). The sauce, and the parent company's Tamazula hot sauce, are made with puya chilis from Jalisco state – similar to the Guajillo chili and known by the name guajillo puya[1] – is described as thicker than Tabasco sauce and less vinegary, with more chile flavor.[2] Valentina comes in two varieties, hot and extra hot, and the sauce is known for its use on tacos and its taste,[3] as opposed to only for its heat. Valentina's ingredients are water, chili peppers, vinegar, salt, spices and sodium benzoate (as a preservative).[4]
