Low-heat/spice recipes use up hot sauce

Tovflu | Nov 11, 201308:58 AM

So over the past year I’ve been making a concerted effort to eat up our excesses (panty, freezer, fridge) that have been sitting too long. I am extremely (some might say way too much) frugal and try not to waste anything if I can help it.

We have TWO bottles of hot sauce (One is franks and one is some other brand I’ve currently forgotten- not sriracha), which is a bit baffling, since I don’t like spicy/hot foods (it overpowers other flavors for me) and the other person in the house doesn’t eat them (he actually likes spicy/hot, but won’t remember they are there enough to use them up). I’m also pretty sure I was the one that bought them and I haven’t the slightest idea why (though I’m positive I bought the with coupons/cheap).
I can handle a –little-- kick.

Any recipes that you lie that use hot sauce but tame the heat (maybe with sugar or dairy, etc..)?
Or other applications? (Hey, you never know)

I’d hate to toss them and I’m normally good at re-purposing and transforming things, but if it comes to it I will.
