Is hot sauce vegan?
Most hot sauce is vegan containing only cayenne peppers and vinegar. I cannot promise that every brand out there is vegan, but all that I have come across so far is vegan. The hot sauces do vary in spiciness from brand to brand, so you may have to adjust the recipe slightly to account for that and for your desired spice level.
How can I control the spiciness of the buffalo sauce?
You can add a few more tablespoons of hot sauce to make it hotter or a few less to make it a milder sauce. They also sell extra hot versions of hot sauce too, so using one of these will make your buffalo sauce even spicier.
If you can’t handle super spicy foods, just reduce the hot sauce to butter ratio.
To cool off the heat from the buffalo sauce, pair it with vegan ranch dressing for the perfect combo!
