I'm a big fan of roasted pepper flakes, mckenzie.
I throw (at least a few) in many, many dishes I cook.
(McIlhenny Tabasco is actually a hot sauce produced in Cajun Country, Louisiana.)
I know I have some Tabasco here, somewhere on my crowded shelves.
But I'd doubt very much I'd have McIlhenny's.
I agree with you about chorizo. How about kielbasa/garlic sausage? I've used it as a substitute on occasion.
You know, I wish I'd never had that Chorizo frying experience.
The amount of fat was truly shocking.
Will check out the kielbasa/garlic sausages & see.
Thanks again for your help!
