It's no secret, I try to eat healthy and low calorie, but sometimes my healthy choices lack flavor. What's a girl to do? One calorie free way I like to enhance the flavor of my healthy choices is with hot sauce. It is a great addition to so many foods. Sometimes I add a little, other times I add more. It all depends on my mood and the food.
I am always really impressed with the hot sauce choices at Walmart. This week, I picked up a "new to me" brand of hot sauce...El Yucateco. Well, not entirely new to me, as my favorite Mexican restaurant offers a few varieties of this hot sauce table side, but I have never purchased it to use at home before. I was surprised to see the Black Label Reserve hot sauce flavor. This flavor is new to the El Yucateco line up and is exclusive to Walmart. I decided to pick up all four varieties. As far as I'm concerned, you can never have enough hot sauce in the house! lol
What did I do with all that hot sauce? Well, follow along and read about 8 terrific ways to spice up your healthy everyday foods with hot sauce.
1. Sandwich Spread
Add a little Habanero Hot sauce to your lowfat mayonnaise for a flavor sensation to any deli sandwich. Yum!
2. Low Fat, Low Sodium Canned Soups
Yeah, these soups are so figure friendly but can be so bland. The Black Label El Yucateco Habanero hot sauce can add some punch without adding much additional sodium or any calories.
3. Low Fat Dips
Whether you buy them pre-made or make them yourself, a sure way to kick up the flavor of ranch dips or spinach dips is with a few dashes of hot sauce! Your veggies will thank you!
It's no secret that popcorn can be a healthy snack. But what happens to the flavor when you take away all that butter and salt? Bland! Hot sauce to the rescue! A little goes a long way! Into the sweet heat thing? Try hot sauce on kettle corn! Yum!
5. Pre-packed Frozen Meals
Let's face it. You want to eat healthy and keep the calories in check, but sometimes time is short. We all have those times when we turn to frozen meals. Once again, if you choose a frozen meal that fits into your diet plan, chances are it's short on flavor. Hot sauce can remedy this problem! (PS, it's a delicious addition to pasta meals!)
Hummus has a lot of flavor on it's own, but have you ever added hot sauce to hummus? Oh my goodness. YUM! Give it a try sometime!
