Well! my daughters are vegetarian, and when we go out if they have any doubt about anything they ask. If you are really strict about what you eat, you must always ask, because their are meat products in a surprising number of things especially sauces. Chicken broth is used in many many things and I have to substitute in many recipes.

Dairy doesn't make it non-vegetarian.

It seems like there are a lot of idiots on here. It says it's Vegan, that means there is no dairy and there is no lard, bacon, pork grease.

Is it possible to make an orange sauce without it being oil based, or dairy based, or swine based?

YES, check this video out:
http://youtu.be/bH-3RvLLhnc

After you make the above recipe in the video it's all a matter of fucking with spices. TRY IT. There's obviously smoke paprika in it and cayenne for the heat, the rest is a mess of their secret stuff.

Just FYI to everyone's angry-ness. La Vic's orange sauce currently comes with a sticker claiming that it's Vegan. As a former vegan for 7 years, and now back to eating meat after being diagnosed with severe food allergies including gluten/dairy/soy I no longer eat vegan. But I also eat clean and lead a private online group teaching others to eat clean and live a healthier lifestyle. It is no secret that there are many reasons why Americans are disproportionately obese, including all these hidden ingredients. By no means am I in favor of censorship, or not allowing certain ingredients into foods, but across the board I believe we should be informed, as to contents of media products as well as to all ingredients of food. You should know if you are particular about ingredients, you cannot make a habit of eating out, because you just never know whats in something. But if the restaurant is going to post a label and make a claim that something is vegan, then you should be able to trust that it is. But above all, be smart and realize that you need to snoop out clues and make choices for yourself. Also know that it is entirely possible that a traditional mexican recipe contained pork drippings as well as traditional mayo, however, there are healthier non dairy and non egg mayos available on the market, and are quite easy to make from scratch. Isnt it possible that a smart and successful entrepreneur may have updated a traditional recipe to make it a healthier alternative to offer his loyal customers?

So... I don't know if this helps you guys but the label now says "It's Vegan" which means no meat or dairy products.

Indeed, it seems likely that mayonaise was always the base, given how cheap mayonaise is and how annoying it would be to emulsify chorito grease to make the sauce, instead of just mixing mayonaise with other ingredients.

Also, the sauce tastes very strongly of garlic and nothing like chorizos, yet the original post claims chorizo grease, chilli and mayonaise.

If I were to make my own (and I plan to) I would use garlic, mayonaise and some kind of chilli/hot sauce.

a lot of dumbass people on this forum. it started so many years ago, ragging on someone who was surprised to hear the sauce had meat products in it.

that person REALLY was right to surprised - you know why, cuz many of us asked that question back then. in english, in spanish, and yes, the person behind the counter did understand it. we asked specifically, if there was chorizo, lard, chicken stock, etc, etc, etc, in anything we were being served. in fact a friend of mine, carries a long list of possibles and it was cleared.

the point is, if you go out to eat, you shouldn't assume u will get screwed - that defeats the purpose of laws in this country. people r retarded to blame a person for believing what they are told by a restaurant, and making claims that they didn't ask properly, or the person serving them doesn't have any IQ. who the F r u to judge, u were not even there!

the restaurant continues to claim its 100% vegan - so all you smartasses who wrote - "obviously, it has sausage grease in it you mentally challenged vegetarian. get the F out of the south bay" should probably apologize.

people posting on forums don't always need this. like probably one million people, he/she was curious if anyone could shed light on the real recipe. let's face it, the sauce is simply amazing. if you can ask 50 people to get assurance its vegetarian and guilt-free, I would! if i can find out the full recipe, i'll try making it without meat (if there was meat in it).

nobody needs to hate vegetarians or non-veg. some of it is "a fad". but for the rest of us, it's how you were raised. i have never tasted meat (at least not intentionally) since birth. i've been cautious, and this point I cannot imagine killing a living and moving, blooded, being so that I can put it in my mouth. but that is just me and everyone has different perspectives that they've carried out.

it's stupid that people think it's wrong for us to exist or for us to ask simple questions at restaurants and expect honest answers. i've been told, "i don't know". I've been told, "sorry, we can't accommodate that". those r fine responses. often, i will just order a salad, when i hear that.

The sauce is delicious.
Im not a vegan nor a vegetarian so its not really an issue for me, but it does say right on the label that its Vegan and im pretty convinced that chorizo grease IS an ingredient so i might understand the deception there.

But just an FYI, stuff like this happens all the time.
Starbucks just changed up their recipe for their strawberry puree because it used beetles for pigment.

Who said that orange sauce was suppose to be vegetarian, get over yourself. It is a sauce, that's all it claims to be.

Open your eyes to the truth. I dare you to watch Earthlings or Farm to Fridge. I am proud to be vegan, for the animals, the enviroment, and health. Next time you are corpse munching look around you at all the fat nasties. Or maybe the mirror. Animals are not our slaves. Go on youtube and watch those movies, if you have the balls.

It is clearly written on the container as "vegan", not just vegetarian. That means absolutely no animal products, including cream or milk.

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.

actually a lot of bbq sauce does have 'fish drippings' in it. its in the form of anchovie paste.

take it easy and stop puting more truth to the notion that people from cali are sensitive morons. I hate that about our state. if I go to chicago or the south or east they bag on us for bein so weak. I cant help but agree especially ehen I see bitchy posts like this

I can't believe everyone missed it. Someone posted the recipe earlier. La Vic's orange sauce is a variation of chile peanut salsa. They probably use vegetable stock and peanut oil instead of chicken stock and peanuts along with variations in spices. But, if you want to clone their salsa, look at this recipe and start tweaking.

Actually, scratch that. I just made the peanut chili salsa. I used arbols and peanuts and chicken broth. Did not taste like the orange sauce. Although, I think I have some direction on where to go next.
