Recently, a new girl was hired at the restaurant I work at. The conversation of, "I wonder what is in La Victoria's orange sauce" came up. She told me that she knew the owner and he told her it had, "chorizo sausage grease, mayonnaise and chili." No wonder it tastes so good. There is only one problem I have upon finding out what is likely among the orange sauce ingredients...I am a vegetarian. I am a vegetarian, and I have been eating at La Victoria for two years. I feel incredibly betrayed and disgusted. I want other people to realize that La Victoria's orange sauce tastes too good to be just another harmless hot sauce.

Why do you feel betrayed? Was it marketed as being vegetarian? Did you ever ask if it was?

Generally speaking, when one goes to Jamba Juice and orders a fruit smoothy they don't expect it to contain PORK GREASE in it do they?.....When I order a vegetable based sauce I expect it to be vegetable based! Chile is a vegetable, PORK CHORIZO isn't!...Who ever the hell thinks that mustard,ketchup, relish, or any other condiment should contain "animal based drippings" is an idiot! It's all about being transparent and honest with your customer. I myself am not a vegetarian, I love meat of all types, but I HATE any seafood or shelfish products. If I went to a BBQ place and loved their sauce and later found out that they have been putting fish drippings in their sauce without disclosing it....I would be sooo pissed I would wan't to burn the place down!!! As you can tell, I take what I eat VERY SERIOUSLY.... Please dont put cat shit in my soup...I dont care how good "it" tastes...

If you're uptight about what's in your food, its up to you to make sure of the ingredients. For example, many people never think about the fact that many gelatin products contain animal by-products. Clearly you and this other individual are incredibly irrational, and are a good example of the type of people that support the frivalous lawsuit industry we have in California.

Uptight and irrational I may be....but not about what I eat. I am smart enough to understand that between ketchup, BBQ sauce, green/red/orange chile sauce, and JELLO...only one should contain animal by-products and that would be JELLO..... I am good example of someone who dosent appreciate food establishments or anyone else for that matter, taking liberty with what they care to serve and disclose to me...I like to know what I am paying for and consuming...Maybe you wouldn't mind going down to the local greasy spoon up the street for a bowl of chile with a touch of bat guano in it (I hear it tastes great)....Trust me, I find out something like that happens to me...I won't be suing.

I agree with you, it is a total surprise that the orange sauce has animal grease/fat. They won't tell you the ingredients (understandable, as I am sure people would not be so eager to use so much of it), so most people don't know it is not vegetarain. Why order the vegetarian burrito, only to smother it with sausage grease? I am not even a vegetarian, however I just think this mixture is disgusting. People should know what they are eating!

ok people...
first of all, the orange sauce is obviously some sort of cream base... be it mayonaise, sour cream, milk (some of my friends' guesses) or whatever, it is still an animal by-product! Mayonaise has eggs, and the milky stuff has.. well... MILK! So you see the creaminess of the sauce... can we put two and two together, please???
Seriously, people...

Yes, it is of course a cream base. And we all know that any dairy is obviously an animal by-product. Regardless of the base of the sauce, that doesn't mean it can't also have sausage grease in addition to the other ingredients.

Add to this that vegetarian does not mean that it cannot include cream or milk -- that is vegan!

Just as someone said above, you don't expect BBQ sauce to be spiked with fish drippings. So I think it is deceiving to add pork drippings to a cream-based sauce, while refusing to disclose whether it actually has meat in it (which it does if it includes pork drippings). Of course the easiest thing to do is just not to eat something if the people that make it won't tell you the ingredients. That should be the first sign to avoid it!

actually, if your a fan of Mauls BBQ sauce it does have anchovies in it. now im sure your going to reply back that you never use or have eaten that sauce. before you do that realize that Mauls churns out BBQ base for over 5000 restaurants across the US not including their retail sales. just something for all you vegetarian/vegan folks o ponder and hopefully cringe over.

ok. i've never posted anything on a chat room or whatever this is, but i do happen to be one of many vegetarians who have explicitly asked if the sauce is vegetarian. i was told there was no dairy or meat ingredient. i'm not saying that it doesn't contain meat or dairy, it could be part of the attempt to protect the recipe, just saying it has been asked by people who do want to know what's in their sauce. or mouths. or bellies.

you know, if you ARE a vegetarian, I would think that you would know to ASK what is in certain products being sold that is new to you since animal meat is used in so many things!! Thats your own fault for not asking. When the tag on the shelf at Target says one price and the paper ad says different, are you going to pay the more expensive price or are you going to ask and see if you can get it at the cheaper price?! Cmon now! Everything isnt just given to you. Ask for what you want sometimes.

Well, lets be real..if you go to a BBq place, chances are, everything has to deal with MEAT, be it the sauce or oils or anything. NOW, if you go to a BBq place that serves some type of BBq seafood, and you know you dont like seafood, DONT GO IN THERE!! chances are, they use fish oil and other types of things in ther sauces bcuz people go their to enjoy all the food offered. If you ate at a BBq restaurant and they didnt tell you that there burgers have a hundred dollar bill in it and you bit into it, would you get mad and throw it back at them?

The sauce is an option. If you are SO sensitive to food ingredients at restaurants, please ask the providers for an ingredients menu and stop clogging our forums with backless, whiney, gibber-jabber. Grow up emo babies!!

That is just it Dickie, they DON'T provide an ingredients menu, like most places in this country. So you just have to not eat something if you don't really know what goes into it. End of story.

Hi, I'm a vegetarian and have confirmed with the owner, Nick, that the sauce is 100% vegetarian.

Hope this helps!

These mexican guys at my work made me some of this sauce, and the sauce isn't vegetarian. It has dairy.
