National Hot and Spicy Food Day is an unofficial day dedicated to the eating of spicy foods, particularly of international origin. The exact origins of National Hot and Spicy Food Day are unknown; however, hot and spicy food has been a part of the human diet for over 6000 years.
Check out some fiery recipes to try below:
1. Ranch-Style Eggs with Chorizo and Tomato-Red Chile Sauce
Bobby Flay uses spicy Mexican chorizo, fresh red chile sauce, and fried eggs – served on fried corn tortillas.
2. Simple Chile de Arbol Salsa
Chile de árbol has a mild to medium heat level (15-30,000 Scoville units). This simple salsa recipe includes garlic and oregano.
Featuring red jalapenos, garlic and butter, this Cajun style recipe looks delicious.
Most jerk sauces and marinades are fairly complex in ingredients, and this is no exception. You can substitute a decent jar of Pickapeppa or Walkerswood jerk paste for these grilled pork skewers. Includes a honey-lime sauce.
5. Grilled Mexican Chorizo with Spicy Tomato Caper Sauce
More fiery Mexican chorizo, this time as sausages.
