Hey chili pepper recipe lovers. It's Patty here. Super Bowl is upon us and I was raised by a father that cared not so much about the sport or who won - unless he had money on the game. It was always about the gambling and I totally agree. I also don’t care so much about who wins or loses this year. I’m from Chicago and I’m just happy the…

Spicy Beer-Cheese Sauce

January 28, 2015
Another game day recipe today, an idea for your Super Bowl party that can do double duty. This spicy beer-cheese sauce can serve as a dip or as a sauce for nachos. Make a double batch and serve them both! I typically keep a jar of salsa con queso on hand at the house for some of our late-night bashes. I make what has come to be known as "Mike's…

Sriracha Sliders

January 27, 2015
Still going with our Game Day theme here in preparation for the craziest, most-watched game of the year. We've covered quite a number of recipes but how about - Sliders! Yes, those outstanding bite-sized burgers you can make en masse and serve up with a variety of toppings, which is one of the benefits of serving sliders. You can keep them simple or you can go all out and come…
Game day approaches! Regardless of who you want to win, everyone wants the same thing - good food! Jalapeno poppers are always a hit. They're easy to make and disappear quickly. Who doesn't like a perfect bite of gooey cheese with bacon crumbles? We tend to be jalapeno popper fanatics around here, mixing and matching stuffing styles and ingredients, trying new types of foods, filling up not only jalapeno peppers…
We're still thinking up tasty appetizers and game day recipes for the upcoming Super Bowl. Deviled eggs are always popular, but we wanted something a bit different this time around instead of the typical mayo recipe. We were thinking we wanted a bit more zing, but not too much, just enough to kickstart those tastebuds. This was the result. Deviled eggs with horseradish and a spicy brown mustard brought both…

Popped down to the farmers market in Florida this weekend and picked up one of our favorite foods - the avocado. But not just any avocado. The girl at the stand had Choquette avocados and they were begging to jump into our bag. The Choquette avocado is larger than the typical Hass variety that grow year-round. The Choquette season is from October through January, so we were in the right…
Today is International Hot and Spicy Food Day, and we couldn't be happier at Chili Pepper Madness. Hot and spicy food has been our focus here for years, and we consider our web sites to be a celebration of those very things. What is not to love about the hot and spicy? There is something alluring in the thrill of the spicy buzz, the zing that travels up and down your…
We were contacted just before the New Year by a company called Tanteo Spirits LLC. They produce a tequila that is infused with jalapeno peppers and wanted to know if we would like to sample the product. Um, yeah! Given our current tropical locale, the tequila was perfect for experimentation. Patty is an awesome mixologist and prepared this particular recipe, which we enjoyed by the pool. Quite delicious! It's hard to…
Patty and I are hanging out in Florida for a while - it's just too dang cold in the Chicago area and we want warmth! And beach. One of the benefits of our temporary stay is the fresh seafood and local farmers markets. We ran down to the local farmers market, which is only open on Sundays, and snagged a big variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. We'll be set…
Where we live it is cold. I mean COLD. It was in the negative digits last night, bottoming out around -8 degrees, and that is without the wind chill factor. No good! What is a person to do on a cold night? Make chili. Chili is such a wonderful comfort food. Don't you think? One major thing we both love about chili is that it can be made in so…
