In my family, we love spicy foods.  We use hot sauces on different foods such as hot dogs, hamburgers, even scrambled eggs! You know what is great, though? Using it as an ingredient in a recipe! This is why I love Texas Pete. Texas Pete is great as a condiment, but have you ever tried Texas Pete Hot Sauce in a recipe? Maybe its something you haven't considered, but totally should. It makes a great ingredient for a variety of recipes. It spices things up; gives it a little bit of a kick, and a lot of flavor!
