Tabasco is one of our all-time favorite condiments, of course. This and other hot sauces add a splash of bright flavor and a zing of spice to whatever we have on our plates. We can't help but sneak a little heat into many of our favorite summer dishes! • Fried Chicken - A couple of shakes of hot sauce in the buttermilk-egg coating gives fried chicken an extra zip. • Guacamole - We love adding a little heat to our cool, creamy guac. • Barbecue Sauce - We never seem to get our BBQ sauce as spicy as we like it. Hot sauce to the rescue! • Caramel Corn - A spicy sweet snack. • Spicy Mayonnaise - We love hot sauce in creamy dressings. Try this in macaroni salad, potato salad, and coleslaw. • Scrambled Eggs - Stir it in and serve it up! • Gazpacho - Hot sauce gives this chilled soup some extra intrigue. • Burgers - Mix some hot sauce right into the ground meat while you form the patties.
