TABASCO Original Red: So Much More Than Hot

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

Growing up, I didn't eat spicy foods.  Later, though, I grew to appreciate a little heat in foods.  One of my family's favorites is Buffalo wings, or the homemade boneless version that we call Superchicken.  I have yet to attempt making wings at home, but--especially with the SUPER-big football game coming up--I might just have to try one of the recipes on the Game-Day Party Menu!

One food that we haven't tried TABASCO® Original Red on is pizza.  Have you tried it?  We sometimes use crushed red pepper, and I can only imagine that TABASCO® Original Red would be even better!  If you're interested, Pizza Perfected has ten creative ways to "Doctor Up Delivery" pizza.  The Fresh Basil and Salad ideas sound best to me!  How about starting a fun game day tradition of trying a few of these ideas to doctor up pizzas?

I also wanted to share one more bit of information that I learned from the company website.  The McIlhenny Company--makers of TABASCO® Original Red (and five other sauces)--has been owned and operated by the same family for more than 140 years!  Many of their employees are the children and grandchildren of employees.  They must be doing something right!
