Celebrate National Hot Sauce Day with Delicious Food Pairings

January 22nd is National Hot Sauce Day, and if you’re a hot sauce aficionado like me, then you’ll be looking for any excuse to celebrate all things spicy! If you’re wondering what to serve alongside your favorite hot sauce, then you’ve come to the right place. Read on for some delicious food pairings that are sure to make your next National Hot Sauce Day a flavorful one!

Tacos & Burritos

Let’s start with a classic. Whether it’s tacos, burritos, or both, hot sauce is the perfect condiment for these Mexican-inspired dishes. Try spicing up your taco night by adding a variety of different hot sauces to the table – you can never have too much heat!


Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s comfort food at its finest. Next time you order in pizza (or whip up your own), don’t forget the hot sauce! It adds an extra dimension of flavor that brings out the best in this crowd-pleasing dish. Plus, it pairs beautifully with melted cheese and savory toppings.

Hamburgers & Fries

Hamburgers and fries are another classic combo that benefits from a dash of hot sauce. The heat helps cut through the richness of the cheese and burger patties, making each bite more flavorful than the last. And as for fries? Well, we all know how well those pair with ketchup… so why not switch it up and add some zing to your meal by using hot sauce instead?


Eggs are often overlooked when it comes to adding heat, but they actually pair perfectly with hot sauce because they absorb flavor so well. Whether you’re eating scrambled eggs or omelets, just a few drops of your favorite hot sauce will take them to the next level – trust me on this one!

So there you have it: four delicious food pairings that will take your National Hot Sauce Day celebration to new heights! Now all that’s left is to gather some friends (and plenty of napkins!) and indulge in all things spicy. Happy National Hot Sauce Day!
