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

With the new year has come the obligatory resolution to eat better in our house. I have been doing my best to focus on spices and sauces that will add flavor to our food, without the fat and calories. Something that  my husband has been reaching for regularly since I received it to review is TABASCO® Original Red sauce.

Boring egg whites instantly become more interesting with a few splashes of heat from the TABASCO bottle. Potatoes, turkey burgers and veggie dips are also a lot more appealing with the flavor enhancing heat that TABASCO® Original Red gives to them.

We have decided that we are still going to indulge in pizza once a week, but that we are going to forgo pepperoni and stick to just cheese or veggie pizzas. When we splash a little bit of TABASCO on these pizzas we honestly don’t miss the pepperoni one bit -and we are saving ourselves tons of calories! And check out this easy recipe for Buffalo Chicken Pizza. Yum! You can learn how to perfect your pizza on the TABASCO site here:Pizza Perfected.

TABASCO® Original Red has been around since 1868, and continues to be the most popular TABASCO flavor. Comprised of salt, red pepper and vinegar – this yummy sauce is aged for 3 years, and in addition to adding heat to your favorite dishes, it actually enhances the flavors of your food. I personally like that I can pronounce all of the ingredients, and that 1 tsp contains a mere ZERO calories!

Our newest experiment with TABASCO® Original Red came tonight. With two little ones in the house we almost always have left over macaroni and cheese in the fridge. When my husband got home late from work I suggested that he help himself to the leftovers (ha!). A few dashes of TABASCO® Original Red later and the joke was on me, because apparently the “leftover-ness” was overshadowed by the delicious heat of the TABASCO.

With the Super Bowl right around the corner, be sure to check out TABASCO’s Game-Day Party Menu to find fun food ideas for your party (that is one day that we WON’T be watching our calories!).

So what is your favorite way to enjoy TABASCO® Original Red sauce? Do you add it to your chili or wings? Or are you a huge fan of Chicken Buffalo Dip like we are?

My husband and I use it on a couple of frugal recipies that I make at least monthly: Old South Hoppin’ Joe (rice, ham & black eyed peas) and Cajun Skillet Sausage (keilbasa, kidney beans, tomatoes). It definitly helps to kick the flavor up a notch! We haven’t tried it on pizza yet. I’ll suggest it the next time we either make homemade pizza or order it in!

I recently tried Tabasco on scrambled eggs. Not sure what took me so long to try it out. Now I’m using it eery chance I get when I have scrambled eggs!
