I love hot sauce, especially the Tabasco brand. I'm looking for a powdered substitute, that comes in a shaker type bottle like seasoning salt. Any ideas? Thanks.

A good base would be cayenne pepper. It would give you the heat, at least.
If you go to a chile site in New Mexico or one of the other southwestern states (Google chiles or chile powder) you'll be able to buy powdered chiles. If you buy some hot and some mild you will be able to mix them to make your own chile blend that can be mixed with cumin powder, garlic powder, oregano, whatever you want. The cost may be more than Tabasco but it'll last longer than Tabasco (unless you're like me and end up putting it on everything).
There is one that I get from the local farmers market here in Flint, Michigan.

It is awesome,there is 3 levels of hot, too.
They have a great cream cheese dip recipe also. Hope this is what your looking for.
You can e-mail me if you have a problem,
