One of my favorite flavors in my recipes is heat. No, I’m not talking about a “hot out of the oven” heat, but I am talking spice heat. For me, the taste of heated spices in my food revs up my taste buds. In fact, one of my favorite ways to add spice to my dishes is by using Texas Pete Hot Sauce.
Texas Pete Hot Sauce is a great condiment, perfect for adding spice and flavor to hot dogs, fries, pizza, soups and sandwiches but also works well as an ingredient in a variety of dishes from ribs to barbecue to red velvet cake icing!
Here is the perfect example. My daughter made homemade macaroni and cheese the other night. I gave her the recipe and asked her to follow it perfectly (she’s been learning to cook in our homeschool cooking class) as part of her grade. What I didn’t expect was her to take her ingenious ways and add a little Texas Pete Hot Sauce into the cheese sauce — just enouch to give ia kick. When we sat down to dinner, everyone was RAVING about the macaroni. It was the that she shared what she did (our recipe did not call for any spices like that).
So you see, you can add hot sauce to just about ANY dish and create this amazing flavor. It’s a secret ingredient you can use to make your dishes more memorable, something worth passing down.
