This ingredient is prepared from red chili peppers, vinegar and salt, and is often aged in wooden casks like wine and specialty vinegars. Hot pepper sauce is used in cooking or as a condiment when a spicy hot flavor is desired.
This colorful casserole is popular for family gatherings in many New Orleans homes. I started making it years ago, and now our grown sons include it on their own menus.—Mrs. Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
