It’s “game on” this tailgate season with taste sensations that add an extra kick of flavor and spice, without having to go into overtime in the kitchen. The perfect sauce is key to executing an effortless game day menu with a distinctive zing.
The winning combination of flavor and heat to quickly whip standard tailgate foods into shape can be found in Frank’s RedHot sauces, and the newest varieties – Rajili Sweet Ginger Sauce and Slammin’ Sriracha Chili Sauce – are the secret ingredient to victory. Leave a lasting impression on fellow football fans with two simple yet savory recipes – wings and pizza – which are amplified by powerful sauces.
Chicken wings coated with Rajili Sweet Ginger Sauce are sure to keep everyone’s hands in the game. This crowd favorite packs a sizzling punch with exotic spices that make taste buds come alive.
Ditch the delivery and serve Sriracha Pizza. This homemade twist on a classic is covered with a blend of sun-kissed chili pepper and jalapeno, balanced by a slight tanginess and hint of smoke. Even meat lovers will crave this spicy vegetarian pizza.
