Dear cooks!
What is your favorite brand of hot chili paste (lajiao jiang) and/or hot bean paste (ladouban jiang) to use when you cook Sichuan food at home? (Note: I gently & humbly ask that you not reply simply to urge me to make the paste from scratch, or to harangue me for buying a bottled paste... if you insist that only homemade stuff will suffice, at least leave your favorite recipe for us!)
