Lets Make Things Hot and Spicy with Tabasco Original Red

Monday, February 14, 2011

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    In the late 1860's, Edmund McIlhenny created the legendary red pepper sauce that is still kickin' up not only heat but mouthwatering flavors as well. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that can say Thank you, Thank you, for those power packed little seeds he planted on Avery Island. Now lets get to the hot and spicy side of things.

    TABASCO® Original Red is not just a hot sauce. You see,  I've had many "okay" hot sauces that were just fiery hot, but that's not what this sauce brings. TABASCO® Original Red is so much more than hot. It brings heat yes, but your mouth will be filled with tingling spices and flavors leaving you wanting another few squirts on your food. TABASCO® Original Red is addicting! Once you have it on one dish, you'll find yourself laying some on your other favorite foods as well.

    Me, I'm huge on heat and spice, so I love to use my TABASCO® Original Red in my guacamole, salsa's, and even on top of my tacos. My sweet pineapple mango salsa gets the kick it needs when I add a few hints of the Tabasco. Put aside the jalapenos and serrano peppers that leave your hands feeling so fiery you cant touch your face. The TABASCO® Original Red allows you to experience the heat without the pain. Doesn't get better than that! Looking for recipes for dips, fingers foods, chili's and more? Head on over to the Game-Day Party Menu. These fan favorites are sure to impress your guests at your next gathering.

In addition to using this flavorful Tabasco in my dips, I use the TABASCO® Original Red in buttermilk before I coat my chicken and catfish to fry. Talk about richness and spice!  This Tabasco makes endless sauces like my plum & lager buffalo wing sauce that's packs a sweet and fiery punch. When I lay this flavorful Tabasco on my pizza, it allows me to have the heat without shaking the same ole crushed red pepper flakes that always falls off onto my plate. With The TABASCO® Original Red, I know every bit is going to be eaten, I'm left spicy, hot, and satisfied. For fresh new ways to jazz up your pizza, be sure to check out TABASCO's Pizza Perfected Page. I totally have my eye on that caramelized onion one. Now that's so much more than hot!
