5 Fiery Recipes with Frank's Red Hot

Oh Frank's Red Hot, how I love thee. Cue spicy dreams about buffalo wings, dips and sauces...

I recently moved into a new apartment with two girls who are seriously obsessed with hot sauce. We probably have 20 different bottles sitting in our fridge and pantry right now. I used to be the type of girl who could not handle any type of hot sauce or spicy food, but living with my new roommates has opened my eyes to one amazing thing: Frank's Red Hot. 

Coming from someone who can't handle the heat, now I want the heat all the time. I'm not sure what is so special about Frank's, but I'm not afraid to admit that I'm addicted. I'm constantly searching for new, unique recipes to try with it so I wanted to share a few with all of you. 


Buffalo Chicken Cups

Besides the fact that I'd probably eat anything in a wonton wrapper, I'll use any excuse to eat buffalo chicken. Especially if it is made properly, with Frank's Red Hot of course. This recipe from Gimme Some Oven is loaded with chili powder and paprika and topped with blue cheese crumbles and scallions.

Mac and Cheese

You might be thinking that buffalo mac and cheese would be perfect combination with some Frank's, but I think any type of mac and use a little bit of hot sauce. A simple American and cheddar blend or maybe even Gouda could really be kicked up a notch by mixing in your favorite hot sauce.

Fried Goat Cheese

Now this is something dangerous. Fried goat cheese with panko bread crumbs. A Bitter Sweet Wife hit the nail on the head. This recipe to get my Frank's Red Hot fix couldn't be easier and it will still satisfy your savory tooth. 


Loaded Potato Skins

Are you seeing a trend yet? None of these recipes are too healthy, but at least these potato skins are made with lean turkey meat and tons of veggies. Go light on the salt and heavy on the Frank's.


Buffalo Chicken Dumplings

Whether you choose to eat your buffalo chicken in dip, slider or pizza form, making homemade dumplings might be my favorite was to eat it. This recipe from Marcus Samuelsson is stuffed with a fiery chicken slathered in hot sauce. Of course you will need a dipping sauce so mix together some sour cream, blue cheese crumbles and chives for a cool after taste. Don't forget a few extra dashes of Frank's on top!
