International Hot & Spicy Day

Hi Everyone,

When I found out today was International Hot & Spicy Day I just had to post all of my favorite healthy, spicy recipes.   After all one of my favorite kind of food is hot and spicy!!  Actually I think it’s my favorite!  My Husband always asks, what is your stomach made of?  Tin?  Nope, my belly loves some heat!  Funny, I eat spinach I get a stomach ache.  If I eat a hotter than h-e double hockey sticks meal, I have no issues and I am happy!!  So let me show you my favorite Hot & Spicy Recipes!!

First Up is My Baked Buffalo Chicken Fingers! These fingers are crispy and pack the right amount of heat! I think I need to make these soon! Perfect for the Super Bowl.

Grilled Cheesy Jalapeno Peppers! I know this time of year, it’s really not grilling season, but if you can pull the grill out, you must make these! So good! I love that the cheese lightens up the heat in the peppers.
