Make This One Batch of Pimento Cheese and Use it in Everything

Growing up in Mississippi, I ate a lot of pimento cheese, mainly on crackers or in sandwiches with white bread. If these were the only two ways I ever consumed this wondrous spread, I would be happy, but pimento cheese can be so much more. Below you will find a multitude of tasty uses for “the caviar of the South.”

Try using Crystal [hot sauce] instead of Louisiana. It has less salt (so you can put more) and more/deeper cayenne flavour— note that I say flavour, not heat, because the label claims this uses “aged” peppers.

A Recipe for Your Hangover Michelada That’s Impossible to Screw Up

It’s morning. Probably. You’re disoriented, the inside of your mouth has been replaced by ass-flavored shellac, and somehow it’s 87 degrees at 10 a.m. The full weight of last night will soon come rushing back to you, and you need enough hair of the dog to qualify as taxidermy in order to steel yourself against the impending nausea.

You’re probably thinking “All you need is bloody mary mix, and a beer”…

Bloody Mary mix will work in a pinch, but “all you need” is a stretch. That’s sort of like saying that cooking dinner is a waste of time because Hungry Man salisbury steaks exist.

Make a Refreshing Michelada Right In Your Beer Can

Micheladas are not a challenging thing: Pour beer into a glass, shake in some hot sauce or sauces, squeeze in a lime, salt well. Everyone has their own way of doing it, their own set of ratios, their own sauce. I make mine in a can.

To makes things even easier, start with a beer that is already mixed with tomato juice (Sol makes one). I’m really not a fan of the Michelada, but I’ve seen people make them the way you describe starting with the tomatoey beer.

Hot Sauce Made With Ants—Would You Eat It?

Funny how people get grossed out about eating ants, cockroaches, and scorpions, but are okay when it comes to shrimp, crab, and lobster, which are basically the ocean version of the same class of animals.

In season there’s a similar sauce in Mexico, I’ve had around Puebla ( Pahuatlan). People do eat ant in tortillas, but I find the taste to be really too much, its weird, a bit pungent, hard to describe… But when its in the hot sauce and you eat eat in a taco with, eggs, meat even cheese, its really delicious and odd at the same time.  But if a local ever says, “Tourists love this” it means that locals don’t touch it with a thirty foot pole 😉

Compared to sauce like ketchup or Sriracha, Kumache hot sauce would be more healthy with that protein.
