Frank's Hot Sauce is outstanding. It's a Cheyenne Pepper based hot sauce that is not too hot, not too sweet, but has just a perfect blend of "flavor and heat." It's not like Tobasco sauce which is very hot and you sprinkle on items. It's a different kind of sauce (I love Tobasco). Frank's is a hot sauce you can use more liberally to your liking because, while it's hot, it's not so hot you can't really dig into it and enjoy the rich flavor and spices.
I like to use this sauce to dip chicken tenders in, but you can also use it too cook buffalo wings, put it on eggs, French fries, burgers, whatever you like.
I highly recommend this hot sauce.
But, when I read about Frank's RedHot Sauce in Cook's Illustrated magazine about 5 years ago (I've been a subscriber since the magazine's inception) I decided that it needed to see more use than just hot wings.
Cook's tested it against other hot sauces, one of which was Tabasco, and Frank's came out #1 (To quote CI: "Tasters liked Frank's "bright" and "tangy" notes and potent heat when sprinkled atop a portion of steamed white rice. The full, tomatoey complexity and "luxurious" body of Frank's was also a high point for many tasters. One taster put it succinctly: "Tabasco is an ingredient, while Frank's is a condiment."") and Tabasco came in last... "Tasters said the searing heat masked any other flavor in the sauce, and most found the thin, watery body to be unappealing. "Bitter, like pepper skin," said one taster. Our recommendation is to use Tabasco for its heat, and that's all."
The CI review opened my eyes! I couldn't agree more and now I use Frank's in place of Tabasco with great success! We love our food spicy, so now it's Frank's and Sriracha (which is a little more garlic-y and a little sweeter)... and maybe some Tabasco added if I want a little MORE heat!
Frank's is a staple in my diet, and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. In fact, I buy the bulk size at Super-Walmart for about $3 and it last 2 weeks....2 weeks of spicy food lovin'!
I put Frank's Red Hot on nearly everything I eat: pizza, frozen burritos, chicken casseroles, breakfast foods, etc.
While Frank's is not the hottest hot sauce on the planet, it definitely has enough great taste to keep you coming back for more.
If you are a bit curious, then I suggest you try something else. You might be pleasantly surprised. Obviously, no reviewer can encompass the myriad of tastes that Amazon customers have. What a reviewer can do is suggest alternatives that might appeal to others.
For those of you who like Franks but are willing to experiment --- then I would suggest you try one or all of the following:
a) Huy Fong Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce - This sauce has considerably more heat than Franks, on a drop per drop basis so it is much more potent. It is nicely balanced with a bit of sweetness combined with a hint of garlic. It has No vinegar but, as noted, you'll need far less since it is far more potent than Franks. Virtually every supermarket carries it - look in the Asian section! Amazon also carries it.
b) Cholula Original Hot Sauce - features a fine blend of peppers - low to medium heat and is readily available - look in the Mexican section or on Amazon. This sauce, given its lower heat level is almost a direct replacement for Franks but has, in my view, a far superior taste. It has some vinegar but is much better balanced than Franks.
c) Tapatio Hot Salsa Picanta - another widely distributed and excellent Mexican Hot sauce. Once again you will find this in your Mexican isle or on Amazon. Similar to Franks but a notch below Cholula in my view - but certainly worth a try - since tastes vary.Read more ›
