20 Ways to Spice Up Every Meal with Fuegorita Crushed Red Pepper

Fuegorita is a fresher, more flavorful and spicier replacement for cayenne, chili powder or crushed red pepper in any recipe. (But use a little less, Fuegorita packs a punch!*) Try adding it to these dishes:

1) Avocado Toast - Whip it into a guacamole spread, or sprinkle on top of slices

2) Pickled Foods - Great on kraut or mix a generous helping right into your pickle jar

3) Olive Oil - Sprinkle onto a plate of oil, with balsamic vinegar, for dipping bread 

4) Biscuits & Gravy - Add to the gravy recipe, or on top of a steaming plate of Bs & Gs

5) Mac & Cheese - Feed the kids first then, add it to your portion for a spicy treat

6) Fried Rice - Cook it into the recipe or sprinkle on top of the final product 

7) Salsa - Kick your store-bought or homemade salsas up a heat level or two

8) Rubs - Add it to your favorite rub to create spicy barbeque steak, chicken or ribs

9) Fried Foods - Add some heat to French fries, tater tots or fried chicken batter  

10 Pasta - Any pasta dish you can imagine just gets better with hot pepper

11) Soups - Chili, butternut squash, potato, chowder, split pea and more

12) Sauces - A new dimension for dipping in BBQ sauce, catsup, ranch and more

13) Coffee - Give your Joe a tingly zip by brewing a teaspoon into your coffee grounds  

14) Salads - Give any salad a spicy zip, especially southwest chicken 

15) Bacon - Add a generous portion prior to cooking to give bacon a real kick

16) Popcorn - Add some heat to a classic snack, but be sure to pour a cold drink 

17) Dips - Spinach and artichoke, Velveeta and Rotel, hummus and more 

18) Nachos - Bake it into the cheese and sprinkle on top 

19) Shrimp Cocktail - Add a dash to give a new flare to this classic appetizer 

20) Fresh Veggies - Grilled asparagus, baked potatoes, brussel sprouts and more

Are you ready to try the hotter, better crushed red pepper? Having a bottle in your kitchen is just a click away!
