Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Chipotle hot sauce on the cheap(er)
Joshua takes a container of cooked pinto beans along to work each day for his lunch (cheap, easy, and healthy) with some hot sauce drizzled on top for flavor. Yummy!
Well, some time back, we discovered chipotle hot sauce and it's SO good with beans. Since we eat so many beans, we can go through hot sauce pretty quick -- which is okay when it's affordably delicious Tapatio, but not so much when it's $3-4 bottles of chipotle hot sauce. ;)
So, Joshua did the logical thing: he bought chipotle hot sauce in bulk. His favorite is the Tabasco Chipotle, so he got a half-gallon of it on Amazon.com. (I was skeptical, but it arrived safely, WITH a free jar of Tabasco salsa!)
But buying in bulk wasn't enough of a money-saving move for Joshua; he started mixing half Chipotle sauce and half Tapatio for a delightful hot-and-smoky sauce flavor. We're still plowing through that big jug of sauce, but it IS going a lot further -- and we love the combined flavor!
Do any of you mix up your own hot sauce combos? Tell me about them! :)
