I ate it this morning!! My arse exploded!

That sauce can't be good for you...

Muchos on Santa Clara st. has a very similar sauce and they told me sour cream. Who the hell knows? It could be skeet for all we know!

Can Vegans eat skeet??

all you vegetarians seem to have brain damage. i cook all sorts of things and know for a fact that many MANY sauces contain animal renderings. lots of bbq sauces, tons of spicy sauces, and pretty much every type of gravy. if you don't know what you're talking about - you should just keep your mouth shut, and if you don't know what you're eating - don't eat it?'they should tell me if bla bla bla...' get a brain and figure it out for yourselves. i swear to god i will paint my dick green and tell you it's a popsicle if we ever meet up.

Hey Guy's, so you say that THE ORANGE SAUCE has chorizo grease. Lol.. Now now people let's not forget the simple fact that the orange sauce must be refrigerated after use. Wise people should know that when you do refrigerate chorizo grease it hardens. It becomes no longer liquid but turns into straight lard....THE ORANGE SAUCE HAS NO chirizo grease .

Att: to all vegeterians The orange sauce is one of a kind..

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...
sounds good

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.

I love that people say the sauce "obviously" contains dairy. In fact, it does not. It is nut based. It also does not have chorizo grease. I know exactly what the sauce is but I'm not telling any of you because your comments got on my nerves. If any of you have been to taquerias with salsa bars you'd know exactly what it is. Ridiculous

I'm surprised that nobody mentioned this fact: The vegetarians found the animal products in this sauce delicious. Hey guys, you can experience that every day, it's called bacon! Why don't you let your incisors do their job and go buy a steak. Animals = delicious as confirmed by several vegetarians on this thread.

P.S. Worcestershire sauce is an anchovy based sauce that is an ingredient in almost everything including almost all BBQ sauces (Mr. Fish hater). Ceaser salad dressing contains eggs and anchovies. Up until very recently Mc Donald's used beef flavoring to fry their french fries. Meat is in almost everything, stop being a poon and just eat some meat. It's an important part of a human's diet and the only healthy way to get complete proteins in one place.

Hi all,

So, I actually just called my local La Victoria instead of postulating wildly without any authority (which honestly, I'm surprised none of you, except perhaps Mark, did), and the conversation went like this:

Me: "Hi, I have a quick question. I just bought a container of your orange sauce. I'm wondering if it is vegetarian."

Cashier: "It's vegan. Just keep it refrigerated, ok?"

Me: "Perfect, thanks!"

This brought to you via using your brain, and dialing a telephone number.

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...
Wow, this guy's an idiot, if you look back on history the original recipe for ketchup actually contained sardines. Hmm using that logic one would also be able to say "get the egg out of my mayo." Hello people, sauces always have the possibility of containing meat products, it is up to the end consumer to do their due diligence. Time to get off the soap box...

Vegetarians eat dairy. They just don't eat meat. You sir are confused.

So....I have been searching this sauce and similar ones for a while. I don't care about this herbivore vs. carnivore battle, I just wanna talk about this sauce. I live in Hawaii now.....and I was just daydreaming about La Vic's orange sauce. So I am on a mission to try and re-create it....OR possibly even make a sauce I like more!(High hopes...)
So! I am going to try a few things. There are so many ingredient possibilities that people are tossing around! There has been talk of it containing jocoque (mexican yogurt-ish), citrus fruit, garlic, mayo, chili flakes, chili oil, chorizo grease, butter??? OMG
Perhaps, since La Vic's is claiming their orange sauce is vegetarian, they are simply using the spices in chorizo (no pork!) and veggie oil for the taste? Who knows.
I am going to also try it with making my own mayo with egg and olive oil and garlic (aiole base).
I will be using various combinations to experiment!=]

again, vegetarian doesn't mean the person doesn't eat dairy or any other animal byproduct, it means they don't eat meat. if they didn't eat animal byproducts they would be vegan, not vegetarian.

I live in San Jose, and part of the hype of Orange Sauce is that it's made out "unknown" or "mystery" ingredients. The allure is you understand that it's made of who-the-fuck-knows-what, and if you are aware of this mystery, wouldn't you consciously steer clear of it If you had dietary restrictions?

And I want to note that your first world dietary restriction is self-induced and not something created from allergy and/or illness. Nobody owes you anything.

Besides, it's just another thing that perfectly illustrates how futile your ambition is to not ingest animal products and by-products.

I'm a lacto-vegetarian by birth. Infact, while I was in SJSU, it was my first year in United States. That time, I was so naive as I didn't understand many ingredients.

I actually came across this topic, while I was researching on the ingredients of this orange sauce, because I was missing it and wanted to know the recipe. Its making me sick now, that I ate orange sauce, thinking its a vegetarian sauce.

La Vic has a sign up in its building saying the orange sauce is vegan safe. All u people are freaking out over heresy.
