  • 1 cup  raw unsalted pistachios
  • 2 tablespoons - ¼ cup buffalo cayenne pepper type hot sauce like Franks (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 1/2-1 cup water if needed, depending on how much buffalo sauce you use and how thin or thick you want it

  1. Soak pistachios overnight to soften, especially if not using a high speed blender. Pistachios are fairly soft without soaking, but this will yield a smoother and fluffier sauce.
  2. Place ingredients into a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Douse everything you eat with it. It's amazing!

Recipe Notes

You can also use roasted pistachios but you may get a slightly different taste. Make sure they are unsalted though as the cayenne pepper sauce has plenty of salt and it will be much too salty with both.
