  • 1 stick butter 1/2 cup, or 8 tablespoons
  • ½ cup Louisiana style hot sauce Franks is very popular, though I use Valentina HOT
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon paprika I use Hungarian paprika – smoked is great, too
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic or more to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • OPTIONAL: Pinch of ghost pepper flakes for XTRA HOT! Or try Cayenne Flakes for nice hot.


  • Melt the butter in a small pot over low heat. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk them together until nice and smooth.
  • Cool, then transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate.
  • Use as needed!



Makes a bit more than a cup.
Heat Level: Medium. It's quite tangy.
