Grilling Tips

Here’s a list of items to consider when preparing for your grilling get-together:

Quick Fix – Using store-bought hummus or salsa, stir in some Tabasco Original Red Sauce to enhance the flavor and add an extra kick for a tasty side.

Meat Mix-Up – Use ground turkey or chicken instead of ground beef when making burgers for an unexpected change of taste and texture.

Made-Over Margaritas – Combine frozen strawberries, tequila, lime juice, sugar, Tabasco Original Red Sauce and ice for a refreshing strawberry margarita.
