What Foods Are The Best With Hot Sauce?


We love us some hot wings over here at Bracket Blog. Hot Sauce, in general, is an amazing condiment to add on your food (or in your drink) to spice it up a bit. It got us thinking for an awesome bracket idea of what foods go the best with hot sauce.

We seeded the bracket based on some research we did online of others who have tried to compile lists like this. Popular entires like potato chips and popcorn were seeded higher than more obscure entries. Also, for fun, we paired each #1 seed up against a different hard alcohol. Everyone always hated getting the tequila and hot sauce shot on their 21st birthday.

We sense a lot of favorites making it through to round 2, but there might be a few upsets lurking.
