National Hot Sauce Day, on January 22nd, is a fun day to celebrate the joy of hot sauce. It's the perfect day to enjoy the spicy, tangy, and sometimes sweet flavors that come from adding hot sauce to your food. And to discover new ones to try!
Hot sauces are used in many dishes to create an added layer of flavor. From eggs to sandwiches, or even steak, there are so many ways to use hot sauce. While chilies were limited to a few places centuries ago, almost every culture utilizes hot peppers and has its own hot sauces.
This year, our twins discovered Hot Ones on Hulu. If you haven't seen it, it's a 10 wing challenge. A celebrity is interviewed by the host, Sean Evans, while eating 10 hot wings. It starts off with a pretty mild sauce & slowly goes up until ending with the hottest sauce.
They are both a bit hot sauce obsessed & watching just made it worse. I caught them pausing it to write down the names of each hot sauce used, to ask if we could get all of them and try our own Hot Ones challenge at home.
So, in honor of National Hot Sauce Day…and to appease my 12-year-olds, here is a list of the best hot sauces I've found online! For more ideas, browse the condiment and international aisles at your local grocery stores.
