Spicy Chicken Stuffed Peppers is an explosive combo of sweet and spicy chicken, pineapple, onion and a touch of habanero hot peppers baked in a red bell pepper—a fun dish with a fiery, fruity spin. A straightforward recipe that looks good fresh and got this spark some of us dig! This spark is called Habanero chilli peppers, and they go wonderfully with pineapples! This version of Chicken Stuffed Peppers is for adventurous people who like this famous duo of sweet and spicy. Habanero Chilli Peppers Habanero chillies are not for everyone; you need to be brave enough to eat them, but they have this fruit aftertaste, which I believe no other chilli peppers have. The good news here is you can use the pepper in moderation, accompanied by some sweet ingredient (in this case, pineapple), which helps to balance the heat. I use a homemade dehydrated habanero powder, but freshly chopped habanero…

Originating from the mountainous regions of Peru, Chicha Morada is a traditional alcohol-free beverage crafted from purple corn, pineapple peel, cinnamon and cloves. This delightful concoction is highly customizable, going from healthy to sweet. Despite its roots in Latin America, it is a delicious drink that deserves recognition worldwide. Chicha Morada holds a higher level of popularity in Peru than Coca-Cola. While it’s available in various forms, such as bottled, powdered, or gel, nothing compares to authentic homemade juice. Crafting it at home is surprisingly easy; the most challenging part may be sourcing dry purple corn (maíz morado), typically found at your local Latino market. If not available locally, you can likely find it online, ensuring it’s from Peru as they have the unique entirely purple cob. Particularly favoured among children, there’s also an adult version called Chicha de Jora, which includes alcohol, offering a different twist for the grown-ups.…

A nice boozy Pineapple Granita to freshen up the palate after or before lunch/dinner. Perfect for a hot summer night to keep your guest in party mode. This easy-to-make Pineapple Granita is so refreshing, plus it’s a super light version that doesn’t use coconut milk or cream. Plus, it’s all-natural coco water, with no added sugar, no need since pineapples are naturally loaded with sugar. A significant characteristic of coco water is that it is the best rehydrating liquid mother nature ever gave us (way more than those energy drinks), it’s filled with electrolytes and potassium (4 times more than a banana), it’s low in sodium and calories, well it’s the perfect liquid, and it tastes like the Tropics! Who could resist? Back to the Piña colada granita, I am still in a big dilemma as if… it’s a starter to open the stomach or close it… I mean, it’s…

This vegan soup will be all you’ll need to make an impression for your next summer feast! Almond & Pineapple Gazpacho is based on the original gazpacho recipe, “Ajo Blanco,” which contains almonds, garlic, bread and a bit of vinegar. The traditional one doesn’t have pineapple, but sometimes grapes are used. A traditional and ancestral Spanish recipe with a touch of fun pineapple! Gazpacho History Gazpacho existed way before tomatoes were imported into Europe from the New World. The Arabs imported them and later cultivated them in Spain. Back in the day, Spaniards used to make “cold soup” gazpacho with almonds and vinegar. They are quite a few excellent recipes using them in Spain. Often used in the “Picada” last aromatic touch at the end of cooking. Plus, it thickens sauces…

This recipe is a bite into the tropics, brings you right to those caribbean islands, also is a great recipe for those people on eternal diet, like myself. You can spice it up to your liking and with whichever is your favorite hot pepper… mine are the habanero peppers. My husband happen to grow them and I obviously have too many, so I dehydrate them and make powder out of them. I’m not usually a big hot pepper lover but this one is special… the habanero has that fruity taste to it. I encountered with this hot pepper in Martinique, a caribbean island. Since then… I add it to many of my spicier recipes, like the spicy “ratatouille” spaghetti sauce with a bit of habanero pepper, it’s fantastic or I do “spicy cod fritters” which is a “typical” meal from the Antilles. They eat those balls like candies over there,…
