Hot sauce + food pairings

Louisiana hot sauce with Popeye's
Grace's with Jamaican beef patties
Frank's Xtra hot on ham sandwiches
Tabasco with anything Chinese, guacamole or salsa, or greens
Sambal or Sriracha sauce on eggs and seafood
Cholula's in....everything

Ah-thank you very much

  1. I love Sriracha with eggs. It's also great in tuna salad.

    1. Dark chocolate and cayenne. Not sauce, but powdered cayenne.

      Walkerswood Jerk Paste with chicken or shrimp.

      1. Sriracha added to tzaziki is fabulous and comes out a lovely color if you can stand a lot of it. I add it to everything and have begun smuggling it into my local sushi place (they wouldn't mind if they caught me). I add Tabasco to A-1 because the Tabasco version seems to be gone. Frank's in mashed potatoes.

          Siriacha on pizza or mixed in with ketsup for fries.
          Franks on fried chicken or mixed in with melted butter and drizzled on popcorn
          Tabasco on the vinegar with the smokey meat

            I got curious and smothered my popcorn and butter in Frank's. WOW.

            It's also very good on potato chips.

        2. Out of curiousity I tried Texas Pete on a Krispy Kreme. It was actually pretty good. Too bad we don't have a Krispy Kreme where I live now. :)

            Tabasco mixed in with cocktail sauce, Tabasco mixed with catsup for fries

          2. Chipotle Tabasco on eggs, tacos, or really boring vegetables.
