We loved the sauce. It is wonderful and the red pepper sauce really makes it that much better. I probably will add more of it next time because we enjoy the heat. My DH kept trying to figure out what was in it. When I told him, he said something like "RRRLLLYYMMY" which I think meant "really yummy" mixed with a mouthful of burger! haha. Thanks for a really different way to serve burgers that is GREAT!
