product review: TABASCO® Original Red

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.
Does anybody else keep a bottle of TABASCO® Original Red on the table for a little extra oomph?  I think the time I reach for it the most is when I'm eating eggs.  Any kind, really.  Shake it over an omelet or perfectly poached eggs or a fluffy pile of scrambled eggs while they're still warm.  That punch of chiles and vinegar hits the warm eggs wafts up to assault your senses.  In a beautiful, familiar way.  That's the thing about Tabasco, it adds not only a healthy kick, but also wonderful flavor.  It's not about the sheer thrill of putting a little hair on your chest.  It's about enhancing your your food, instead of overpowering it.  For me, Tabasco's defining quality is that it enhances other foods.  Because, while I like my heat...I hate it when I can't taste the food itself.  Take for instance pizza.  From homemade to frozen to take-out.  When ours is ready, we grab the plates and the bottle of Tabasco.  Anything from plain cheese to ham with pineapple to chicken and veggies benefits from the addition of a few splashes of 140-years-plus of tradition.

Each chile pepper is hand-picked at its peak, when juicy and deep red.  They are then mashed and mixed with salt harvested from the waters on the very island the seeds are grown on, Avery Island in Louisiana.  The only other ingredient used in Tabasco® Original Red is vinegar.  Individual batches are aged for up to 3 years before being strained, bottled and labeled 22 languages and dialects and shipped to over 160 countries and territories around the world.*

I feel confident each time I splash a bit on my eggs in the morning, or my salad with lunch, or my pizza during the big game, knowing the history and care that goes into making each bottle of Tabasco® Original Red.  If it's been a while since the last time you used Tabasco, why not give it another go?  Or perhaps you're simply looking for new ways to spice up a pizza (Pizza Perfected) or find new game-day food traditions (Game-Day Party Menu)...check out the Tabasco website for all kinds of delicious ideas!
