Texas Pete’s CHA! Sriracha Sauce

We cracked open this company provided sample not quite knowing what to expect. Texas Pete and Sriracha? Yup! It works! It turns out Texas Pete indeed developed an authentic tasting Sriracha style chile sauce using fresh red chiles.

New CHA! by Texas Pete® Sriracha sauce offers a bold, balanced flavor that you will love. With fewer preservatives than other Sriracha sauces, CHA! by Texas Pete® offers extraordinary flavor, color and consistency at a more affordable price.

I have to agree with that statement on every count. It is bright red in color, consistency is rich and medium-bodied, and the flavor is sweet, garlicky and bold with a nice heat level.

Ingredients: made of chile, sugar, garlic, salt, vinegar, potassium sorbate (to preserve freshness and flavor)

Texture & Appearance: Slightly pulpy in a medium thick sauce that’s bright red in color. Classic.

Taste Straight Up: True to form for a Sriracha style sauce, bright tasting fresh chiles are up front with a big garlic hit followed by sweetness. Well-balanced.

Heat Level: Rated 2 out of 5 Stars – A nice tame level of heat here. This does not detract from the overall enjoyment of this sauce. As a matter of fact, we feel it’s a more approachable Sriracha sauce for many. Kudos to Texas Pete for creating a Sriracha sauce that should do well in the mainstream. Spicy.

Big bottle, great packaging.

Label/Graphics: Packaged in a large 18 ounce clear plastic squeeze bottle, the label is a clear, 2 color white and yellow design with clean graphics and fonts. CHA! is clearly the name of this sauce. Bonus points for the awesome “flip top” pointed cap. A very nice touch! Classy.

The flip top is a winner.

Final Thoughts

This is a great example of a Sriracha style sauce that you can share with family and friends that have never experienced the garlic, fresh chiles and heat that is Sriracha.

  1. Great review for Texas Pete’s CHA. I have yet to see this in our local stores but will be keeping an eye out for it.

  2. I would not hesitate to recommend this sauce to any sriracha or hot sauce fan who is looking for a solid player in their cabinet. I think it will give Huy Fong a run for the money once this reaches wide distribution and folks start looking for a flavorful, well-balanced sauce.

    Just bought my first – and last – bottle of Texas Pete’s Cha. The heat was ok, but I was expecting more garlic. It also has a bit of a bitter finish, I think. The price point is fine, and I do like the flip-cap, but I’m willing to pay a bit more for a sauce that has a more diverse flavor profile. Glad I tried it, but won’t be back for second’s once this bottle runs dry.

    I found a coupon in my local, Sunday paper and bought a bottle of Cha today. It has a really nice flavor with a touch of heat. Let’s just say….I have a very pleased palate. :)

    Oh yeah, let’s not forget that flip cap! I’ve been using Sriracha (Huy Fong) and there are times when the tip gets clogged. :( Having a flip cap is definitely an added bonus.

    P.S.
    As a reminder to Sriracha newbies, you need to shake the bottle before using so all the wonderful flavors can be properly mixed.
