This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO ® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.



I have always loved my foods with a little kick.  I always shave TABASCO ® Original Red on hand to toss into my meals, so I can add a little extra spice to my own.  It’s delicious in Mexican recipes, pastas, eggs, pizza and so much more.

Superbowl is right around the corner and , honestly, I can’t think of a single food on your party menu that doesn’t taste better with hot sauce!!  Definitely, try it out on your next pizza and check out Tabasco’s Game-Day Party Menu  for some delicious recipes for your Superbowl party, including Pizza Perfected.
