Two easy ways to spice up your meals with Franks Red Hot Sauce

I am not even going to write this recipe blog post out in normal fashion because these two recipe suggestions are beyond simple.

And simple my friends, is the way I do things. Especially when it comes to food. You see, as much as I enjoy eating healthy, I am just not a foodie. I don’t particularly enjoy cooking, I don’t enjoy washing dishes and doing all the prepping, cleaning and buying tons of ingredients.  Occasionally I get the cooking bug or urge to try a new recipe but the most part less cooking, less ingredients and less time on meals is my way to go.

Onto the recipes. Franks Red Hot is not your typical health food and is quite high in sodium, just to give you a heads up, but when used sparingly I love the kick it gives my food. Here are two ways I use it.


Franks Red Hot Dressing

I mix a spoonful of plain greek yogurt and a few drops of hot sauce in a bowl and mix them together thoroughly. I then use it as a dressing for chicken salad, tossing thoroughly. I usually have some sort of spinach, cilantro, green onion mix maybe with some peppers, avocado and even a little rice if I want to make it my whole meal.

This can also make for a yummy vegetable dip.

Chicken and Rice Red Hot

I make this in a crockpot and usually include a cup of brown rice, 2.5 cups of water, and 3-4 chicken breasts. I add the rice and water first and then 1/3 cup of Franks Red Hot, mix it together, then add the chicken on top and drizzle a little more sauce to my liking. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 7-8, and you are done.

The sauce add just enough flavor to keep the meal from being too plain but not so much that it feels overwhelming.

Keep it simple. Keep it tasty.
