Influenster Product Review: Frank's Red Hot Sauce (With a quick snack recipe)

(Working Title)

No, I don’t cook. Not often anyway and rarely without real adult supervision but I do like to make myself some snacks and thanks to Influenster I get to try out a new-to-me hot sauce on one of my favorite guilty snacks!

A little bit of a back story on this particular snack: My little sister and I used to LOVE making chips and hot sauce back in the day. When the weekend would come she’d ask me if I could make the chips and hot sauce and we’d watch TV or a movie together. And while it seems like a simple snack, there were some trials and errors (i.e. messes) before I found a way to not bring the wrath of our mother down on us because we trashed the kitchen.

And yes, if you’re not careful you CAN end up trashing the kitchen. Especially when you’re 14 and your helper is a very short 11 year old with a penchant for eating the snacks faster than you can make them.

Okay so you need just four things to make this work: Potato chips (I’m using Lays Lightly Salted ones here), A whole lemon (Or more depending on how much you’re making), A gallon ziplock back, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (In this case it’s the original recipe which has cayenne pepper), and some wet napkins (Because you SOOOOO don’t want to rub your eyes without wiping them first).So first you’re going to set up your ziplock bag like in the above picture. It just makes it easier to get things inside of it.

 Then you’re going to cut your lemon in half and squeeze half of it into the ziplock bag. If you’ve got a good small strainer, use it to keep the seeds from going in. I had to spoon them out because, ha ha, I don’t have a good strainer.

Then you’re going to take your Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (I used to use Louisiana Hot Sauce but I love trying new stuff) and put about a tablespoon and a half in. I like my mixture extra spicy so I put more.

Then you’re going to add your potato chips. I added about two handfuls into the bag before closing it up and shaking it around. PLEASE DON’T BE LIKE ME! Double check to make sure that ziplock is sealed tight. I failed to do this several times as a kid and the result was not pretty. Anyway, shake it, turn it upside down, shake it, and repeat until you see the chips start getting well coated in hot sauce and lemon.

* If you’ve put more chips in than I did then this is the part where you open up the ziplock and squeeze the other half of the lemon in and put in some more hot sauce. Then repeat the above steps.

Open up the ziplock and taste a chip. Too spicy? Add more chips and shake. Not spicy enough? Add more hot sauce. It’s up to you. After you’ve got it just right, just put it in a paper plate and snack away!


*I received Frank’s Red Hot Sauce with Cayenne Pepper for free via Influenster for the purpose of an honest review. All opinions are my own responsibility and I was not compensated for this review.

Okay so for the first time I tried a hot sauce other than Louisiana hot sauce and it was an interesting experience.

I thought that since this type of hot sauce had Cayenne Pepper in it that it was going to be super hot so I added in small amounts at a time so that I wouldn’t end up with a five alarm stomach on fire. I needn’t have worried, this particular hot sauce wasn’t as hot as I thought it would be and I have a relatively low tolerance for spicy food, meaning that I don’t eat super hot stuff.

Overall, I liked Frank’s Red Hot Sauce with Cayenne Pepper. It gave my snack a bit of a bite and I’m definitely curious to see how it will taste on say, chicken wings. I’ll definitely provide some photos and a detailed write up when that happens. I would definitely buy it again but maybe I’ll go for their buffalo wing sauce just because I’m curious as to how spicy that one is.

You can find Frank's Red Hot sauce just about anywhere. I've seen it at Wal-Mart, Target, Albertsons, you name it.
