Tabasco Sauce Recipes
Judith Said:I had a great mac and cheese recipe that used Tabasco sauce and I cant find it. Do you know it?
We Answered:If this isn't it, try contacting the newspaper you would have cut it out of. The Food Editor should have it archived. This was from the Macomb Daily in Feb 2005:

Place chicken on a cookie sheet or oven pan. Brush or drizzle BBQ mix over chicken and bake at 400F for 10 min.
Remove chicken - baste again with BBQ mix and return to oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Eduardo Said:A Roast Pork recipe calls for tabasco sauce..?
We Answered:Yes, you don't need to use what they say
Constance Said:buffalo sauce, I only have tabasco, will this do and how can I tone down the heat?
We Answered:This is the original spicy Buffalo chicken wings recipe from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY. You can adjust the heat by adding more or less cayenne and Tabasco.
(NOTE: Since you don't have anything other than Tabasco, you would naturally delete the 6 tablespoons of Louisiana Hot Sauce (i.e., Crystal or Frank's) listed below and instead of the 1 teaspoon of Tabasco called for, use 2-3 tablespoons). I've always found that I must use double the amount of Crystal's when a recipe calls for Tabasco, and vice-versa (half as much of Tabasco when Crystal's is called for).
There are many Buffalo chicken wing recipes out there, but if you want to taste the "real" thing give this a try. The chicken wings are deep-fried in the original recipe, but the hot oven works fine for the home version.
Makes 6 Servings of Buffalo Chicken Wings (6 per person)
* 36 chicken wing pieces (one wing makes 2 pieces - the "flat" and the "drum")
* 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
* 6 tablespoons Louisiana hot sauce (Frank's is the brand used in Buffalo)
* 6 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine
* 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
* 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
* 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
* 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* celery sticks
* blue cheese dressing
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
1. If necessary, cut whole wings into two pieces. Toss the wings in the oil and spread out evenly on baking pan(s). Do not crowd. Bake for about 25-35 minutes, until the wings are cooked through and browned.
2. While the wings are baking, mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a pan, and over low heat bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and then turn off.
3. After the wings are cooked, transfer to a large mixing bowl. Pour the sauce over the hot wings and toss with a spoon or spatula to completely coat. You can serve them like this, which is called "wet," or put them back in the oven for a few minutes to cook on the sauce and make them crisper.
These are always served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing on the side.
Raymond Said:Does anyone have a dessert recipe using Tabasco? I love the sauce and want to see how it works with sweets.?
We Answered:Here is the direct link to Tabasco dessert recipes
Frances Said:What can I use as an alternative to Tabasco sauce?
We Answered:Tabasco is a hot pepper sauce. Have you tried asking in the market if there is any product like that. I'm wondering if they do sell something like that but under a different name?
Also, what country are you in? Most countries have markets and specialty stores that sell foods from other countries. Here in the US our large supermarkets have sections for these. Are you certain that you can't find it in a store like that? I'd suggest making the effort to get a bottle, because nothing has the flavor of the real thing. Also, one bottle will last you for EONS if you are using it to cook with. A little goes a loooong way, but often can really make a recipe.
Last option, how about ordering a bottle online? I can't imagine nowadays you couldn't do that, long as you don't need it immediately lol.
And as someone else said, Worcestershire sauce is TOTALLY different than Tabasco and can't be substituted. Ironically in some recipes they do blend amazing well together to add a lovely flavor (shhhh don't tell anyone they are the secret ingredients in my amazing shrimp scampi!!!!). But they add 2 totally different flavors.
Good luck! I'm betting if you look around, you'll be able to find a store that sells it. I'd look up gourmet stores, foreign food stores, etc. And if you do this, call and if they don't have it, ask the store manager if he knows who does carry it!
PS....just went to take a quick look at the Tabasco official web site to see if they did mail order. They do! And I found something better. On the bottom left hand column they list a ton of foreign contries with info on where to find in them. Take a look there! I put the link below.
