Best Local Hot Sauce
Jennifer Ring

Not all of us believe in Jesus, but we can all agree on Taco Jesus. I mean… it’s, like, in the Bible: “On the 8th day He created Taco Jesus Hot Sauce and it was good.” Oh, no, wait — that was written on a bottle of hot sauce. Buy the spicy savior online, or find some at one of the local markets. This probably goes without saying, but he’s great on tacos. —Jennifer Ring
