Jamaican Red Mushroom peppers are a type of habanero pepper and have a comparable heat level. Also known as the Squash pepper, it is mushroom shaped and matures from green to a dark red. Like a habanero, it is very fruity and packs plenty of flavor in its diminutive pod. Continue reading

Quick Pizza Recipe – with Jalapeno Peppers

There are days when you’re in a hurry, or when you just want a quick lunch. But why must we suffer through bland and boring or processed foods? No! I make the case here for flatbreads. Flatbreads are wondrous items of food, typically used for sandwiches with plenty of tasty morsels within, but today I’ve used mine for pizza. The only time consuming ingredient here is the salmon, which cooks quickly, though if you are in a huge hurry, you can skip the salmon or incorporate some leftover proteins like grilled chicken.

The HJ8 Total Eclipse Space Chili

Since the mid 1980′s, China has been sending recoverable satellites into space on a 5-day orbit around Earth. Each trip, approximately 5000 seeds are sent along and are exposed to the zero gravity and cosmic radiation, then returned. Back on Earth, these seeds are then cultivated. Around 50 of each batch show positive signs of mutation. These are selected for a 3-5 year program of cultivation and field testing and selection until those with the best properties are ready for sale. The seeds tend to have a high disease resistance, be more nutritious and give a much higher yield. Continue reading

Roasted Red Pepper Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Prepare to be stuffed! With roasted red bell peppers, that is. Certainly not a spicy dish in terms of heat, but absolutely high on the flavor scale. Roasted bell peppers bring an inherent sweetness to a dish, turning ordinary chicken into a go-to meal. This particular dish combines the roasted bell with cream cheese and seasonings, stuffed into a flattened chicken breast, then rolled in panko and lightly fried. Served with a chili-lime butter. Continue reading

Spice Up Your Wings with Ghost Peppers

Chicken wings are a huge favorite, and I personally enjoy them because you can cook them up in so many ways. I’ll get mine deep fried usually, as that is the typical restaurant preparation, but I wish more places would grill them. The texture is different, and you don’t get all that oil. This particular recipe busts out the grill and brings up a dry rub, sauceless chicken wing. I like mine extra charred, but if it’s too much, just pull them off the grill a bit early. Continue reading

Growing Chili Peppers

It’s that time of year! We hope your chili pepper garden has been planted outside and are taking proper root. Pretty much no matter where you live in the US, you should have already started your chili peppers from seeds unless you’ll be buying seedlings for your garden. We are in the Chicago area (zone 5) and have our chili pepper plants transplanted. We’re growing about a dozen types again this year. Continue reading

Spicy Mustard Rubbed Pork Chops – Memorial Day Grilling

Speaking of pork chops, this particular recipe is sure to please you spicy food fans. I used some El Diablo spicy mustard along with habanero powder for the extra kick, but you can easily vary this up to include your own preferred mustard. I enjoy mustard with pork because the flavors are highly complimentary, but you’ll also get a clear mustard flavor afterward. Enjoy. Continue reading

Caribbean Style Chicken with Habanero Sauce

I recently received a couple of different chile extractions from David Rosengarten Gastronomic Selections and was able to sample them. Like most, I enjoy dashing hot sauces over finished foods as a finisher and extra source of heat, but I also like to cook them into specific foods. Often, a hot sauce makes up perfectly for a lack of fresh peppers. Here are the two sauces I received… Continue reading
