Cayenne pepper sauce is a hot, spicy condiment that can be used to add culinary heat to chicken wings and other appetizers. A dash of cayenne pepper sauce will also liven up scrambled eggs or give a Bloody Mary a jolt. You can grow the peppers in your garden or find them at a produce stand or in the grocery store, then try making your own cayenne pepper sauce at home.
