Tabasco lovers, get ready to book a flight to Louisiana. Today, the hot sauce company opened a Tabasco-themed restaurant at the brand’s headquarters on Avery Island. Dishes include classic Cajun signatures like jambalaya and boudin, as well as some more out-there Tabasco-inflected creations like raspberry-chipotle ice cream. If you can’t make it out to the restaurant but are still craving some spicy, tangy Tabasco, we have just the thing to tide you over. Here, nine deliciously fiery Tabasco-spiked recipes to make at home.
1. Pop-Open Clams with Horseradish-Tabasco Sauce
You can’t get lazier than this. Simply throw the clams on a hot grill, wait for them to open and start sizzling, then top them with a spicy sauce spiked with horseradish and Tabasco.
2. Vietnamese-Style Banh Mi Burgers
Is this an American take on a Vietnamese classic or a Vietnamese take on an American classic? Either way, these spicy burgers topped with Tabasco-spiked mayonnaise, slivers of crunchy pickled carrots and sprigs of cilantro are wonderful.
