TABASCO - So much more than hot!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.
The Super Bowl is right around the corner - which for me means preparing LOTS of game food for my hubby and boys!  That's one of the days that we really splurge on our diets and eat lots of fun stuff.  Our menu always includes pizza, party mix, chips and dips, hot wings, and more.  
My hubby is a HUGE fan of TABASCO® Original Red; he seriously uses it on almost everything - eggs, casseroles, burritos, chicken, and especially pizza.  I have always been a little scared to try it - until last week.  Hubby finally convinced me that it's more than hot - it really has a good flavor.  I put some on my pizza and holy cow, I love it!  I usually just order the cheapest pizza I can find, and while it's ok I've always thought it needed something.  The TABASCO really brings out the flavor of the pepperoni and the sauce.  I don't think I'll ever go without it now.  When I went to the Pizza Perfected part of the website, I couldn't believe the ideas they have for pizza!  I'll have to try a couple of them and post again.  Especially the Pesto and Salad Pizzas!!!
For our Super Bowl Party, I'm also going to try some of the recipes I found on the Game-Day Party Menu.  This one is definitely on my menu now:

Hot & Spicy Party Mix

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted 
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons Original TABASCO® brand Pepper Sauce
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons seasoned salt 
  • 8 cups of your favorite Chex® brand cereals (corn, rice and/or wheat) 
  • 1 cup mixed nuts 
  • 1 cup pretzels 
  • 1 cup bite-size cheese crackers 
Combine butter, Worcestershire sauce, TABASCO®Sauce, and seasoned salt in a small bowl and mix well. Pour cereals, nuts, pretzels and cheese crackers into a large plastic zip-top bag. Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture inside Zipper Bag. Seal top of bag securely. Shake bag until all pieces are evenly coated.
To prepare in microwave oven:
Pour contents of bag into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high 5 to 6 minutes, stirring thoroughly every 2 minutes and scraping sides and bottom of bowl. Spread on absorbent paper to cool. Store in airtight container.
To prepare in conventional oven:
Pour contents of bag into an open roasting pan. Bake in a 250°F oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool and store as directed above.
Makes 11 cups.
Note: Due to differences in microwave ovens, cooking time may need adjustment. These directions were developed using 625- to 700-watt ovens.

I also have a recipe for a great buffalo chicken dip - I'm thinking I'll substitute the TABASCO for the old sauce I used.  It'll add a lot more flavor that even the kids will like!  
So what about you?  Do you have any great recipes to share for the big game day?
