Check out which of our recipes made the top 10 list for all of 2017. Will it be a hot sauce again this year? Or a stuffed pepper recipe? Or something else entirely? Check it out.

Happy New Year, my friends! 2017 truly ROCKED for us! We had such a great year. Our blog has continued to grow, I wrote a new cookbook that is due out in about 1 week – The Spicy Dehydrator Cookbook – AND! I am hard at work on my next cookbook for the same publisher. I can’t believe how fortunate I’ve been, being able to earn a living talking about and cooking with spicy food, particularly chili peppers, which I deeply love!

As I do each year, I’m happy to share our TOP 10 CHILI PEPPER RECIPES OF 2017. Can you guess which recipe of 2017 is number one? Will it be a hot sauce again this year? Or a stuffed chili pepper? Or something else entirely? Hot Sauce Recipes and Stuffed Pepper Recipes are ALWAYS hugely popular on our site, but read on, friends. You just MIGHT be surprised!

Tell us, what were some of YOUR favorite recipe on our site for the year? Feel free to share!

When we started our food blog many years ago, our idea was to simply share our love of bold, zesty, and spicy food, which OF COURSE includes chili peppers, but we also fought to grow as communicators and artisans in this vast food blogging community. We’ve met a number of great people along the way and we’re excited to share what we’ve learned through the pages of our blog. Our goal is to continue to grow, and to be able to share with you our passion for cooking. And peppers. There is no limit to better. We hope you have a HAPPY NEW YEAR, and cheers to 2018. Onward!
