Goodbye boring, hello SMOKIN’! Thanksgiving has passed, and if you are like me, you stashed some of that leftover turkey in the freezer for a rainy day. You can always go buy some deli meat turkey – the good kind – and use that if you don’t have a secret turkey stash. If you are looking for holiday party recipes, we have the perfect one for this time of year. Tabasco and I are taking leftover turkey sandwiches to a whole new level. We are turning Thanksgiving leftovers into a perfect holiday party appetizer.

If you must know, my eyes lit up when I saw that Tabasco has some new sauces. We all know that bottle with orange sauce and a red cap, right? It’s iconic for Tabasco. Kiss those classic thoughts goodbye. There’s a new Tabasco in town and it’s named Chipotle. The instant I heard chipotle I thought of my current obsession – cranberries. I just knew the smoky heat of the chipotle sauce would be perfection with a sweet cranberry jam and was I ever right. I checked several stores before I found it at my local Walmart Super Center.

I am so in love with this Tabasco Chipotle Sauce. While Tabasco has traditionally been considered a hot sauce, it doesn’t just add some heat, it adds FLAVOR, and Tabasco Chipotle adds a smoky heat that not only pairs well with leftover turkey and cranberry jam for turkey sandwiches, but will also make a killer buffalo salmon on my new grill. I cannot lie, I made a little chipotle mayo to go on the side and couldn’t stop tasting it. It is so addicting.
