Question Cooking with a little heat...

I like to cook with things that tend to make the dish a little hotter. I like adding hot sauce, chili powder, crushed red pepper, etc. What do add to make things a bit spicy? Do you have any good spicy food recipes. If so can you share them. Thanks!

It's not exactly a recipe, but lately I've been loving plenty of tabasco on my omelets.

There are few things in the world more complimentary than eggs and Tabasco...

That said, I'm less a fan of chile-type heat, I really love horseradish / wasabi type spiciness. Feeling like someone's using blowtorch in your sinus cavity means there's almost enough wasabi in a dish...

Re: Cooking with a little heat...

This is great! I used to love spicy food!!! Ate it all the time. I used to go to this Thai place and take home their 'house spice'. I think it was just their spice with some sort of oil mixed in. It was phenominal and super hot.

Anyway. I stopped eating it because when I was a fatty I had horrible heartburn and that stuff didn't help. Then I found CF and got away from the white rice (no thai). I guess I could go there and just ask for the stuff.

Sorry for the silly post but I totally forgot how much I used to look forward to spicy thai food.

I love the red pepper flakes/tabasco with eggs meals. I add a lot of cayenne to chili.

Re: Cooking with a little heat...

I LOVE spicy food. I am sure I will have more to add later, but for now...

Sriracha on just about anything, but especially asian food.

You can't go wrong with this stuff.

Re: Cooking with a little heat...

Buffalo wild wings has a really tasty hot sauce that I put on alot of stuff.

Blazin' sauce

Apparently it is around 200,000 - 350,000 Scoville Units depending on the season

Agreed, this goes in all my stir-frys.

Canned chipotle peppers, puree them and add to sauces or even make it the base of a sauce. Delicious.

Word, the Rooster sauce is good on everything--great ketchup substitute.

Canned chipotle peppers are great.

Put the chipotle peppers, along with the adobo sauce they come in, in a food processor and puree. Smother it all over a pork tenderloin, let it sit for a few hours, and then grill it up. So good!

Re: Cooking with a little heat...

Speaking of chipotles, I used to make an adobo marinade--almost forgot the recipe it, but basically you use:

Dried chipotle/poblano/ancho peppers (soak them for several hours, then cut up, de-seed and throw in a food processor)

Roasted garlic (also mush in the food processor)

White vinegar (or cider vinegar)

LIme juice (preferably fresh from the lime)

Mix 'em all together and throw 'em in a bag with your meat of choice for a good 8 hours.
