This post brought to you by TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.
When I was emailed about trying the TABASCO® Original Red sauce, I paused to contemplate for two whole seconds. My guys use Tabasco sauce nearly every day. Considering I returned home from running errands, entered the house, and found our sons with a bowl full of “dipping” sauce the day I received the email, I think I’m the right person to testify to its virtues.
Ironically, the smell of freshly popped popcorn permeated the entire house and on closer inspection, I realized they were dipping their popcorn in the Tabasco Sauce. Claiming they have discovered the next best snack invention, I took their word for it. I’m all about experimentation, but I’ll stick with my butter and salted popcorn, thank you.
Most people only think of using Tabasco to spice thing up, but it’s so much more than just a hot condiment. Since it enhances the flavor of food, I add a dash to many different recipes – taco dip, guacamole, soups, and even bread when I’m going for a flavored dough. Now, guys, they literally add it to nearly everything they eat. They have quite the diversified palette.
With the Packers going for the NFC Championship this weekend (GO PACK!!!), I’ll be firing up the pizza oven and serving up some Barbeque Chicken Pizza. By adding in a dash of Tabasco sauce, it’ll bring out the perfect blend of flavors. I’ll pair it with one of our favorite cheese, sausage, and salsa dips too. YUM! You all know I am a huge fan of pizza. In fact, in graces our table far too often, but when I checked out these ideas for Pizza Perfected, I realized just why I love the varieties so much.
Are you cheering for anyone in the big games this weekend? Do you need some ideas for your Game-Day Party Menu and print a coupon at the same time? Enjoy all these fun recipe ideas. You can think of me at game time: Sunday at 3:00, because you can bet where I’ll be – sporting some Green and Gold. WOOT!
Tabasco on Popcorn is really delicious! My family has done it since I was little. We still put butter and salt on it, and then just dash some Tabasco on top, tasty! It’s really good with apple juice on the side, to help cut the spice a little bit 🙂
Ok, you’ve talked me into it. I thought my guys were just being silly. Now, I’ll have to try it. 🙂
Have you tried their Chipotle sauce? It’s soooo good and I like it since it’s not quite as spicy as the regular red stuff!
We don’t use Tabasco sauce, but do buy the Tabasco PULP. OMG. This stuff will make or break you!! Just thinking of it makes me want to go do a post on the shrimp creation!! (and sorry, Jen, but you KNOW it’s all about the Bears!)
Jen, I’m with you, GO PACK!!!
You can take the girl out of Wisconsin, but she’ll always be a Packer fan.
Yes, I grew up in WI on a dairy farm…now living in St. Louis with stops in Chicago and the Detroit area.
Don’t tell my dh about the Tabasco on popcorn. He puts Tabasco on just about everything else I’m surprised he hasn’t tried it on popcorn yet.
