I'm a die hard fan of any and all hot sauces, and I'll put it on just about anything. From Sriracha to Frank's Red Hot, you can take your meal to the next level by adding just a 'lil bit of spice. I tried out a ton of dishes and added hot sauce to each one, and these are undoubtedly the ones that need it most. 


It's time to elevate your popcorn. Drizzling your favorite hot sauce over a bowl of buttery popcorn with a pinch of salt and some yummy parmesan cheese is a surefire way to spice up your movie night. Also, a bowl of spicy popcorn is way healthier than the average soda and candy that a movie night usually entails.

Average Burger

This is not an average burger anymore. Mix in some hot sauce with your ketchup and change your burger game forever. Or, if you have time to spare, sauté onions in a pan and gradually add hot sauce, coating the onions. Adding that to the top of your burger is a definite way to impress. 


Try drizzling hot sauce over your pizza, and you'll step up your typical Friday night dinner. Typically, this works over most pizza toppings but pairs especially well with pepperoni.
