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…

Spicy Sweet Potato Lasagna is a gluten-free version with a tad of spicy habanero to balance the sweet potatoes. Instead of traditional pasta layers, this dish features sweet potato layers, resulting in a carb-conscious and utterly delicious alternative. This Sweet Potato Lasagna is made with a spicy bolognese sauce, a few layers of sweet potatoes and stringy gratinated cheese to top it off. Making this dish a gluten-free one with tons of flavours and frankly the spicy-sweet touch is always a winning combo. To calm things down, and give some smooth texture to the lasagna; a bechamel. The result is a delicious contrast of spicy yet sweet lasagna with a smooth core. Sweet Potatoes vs. Normal ones Talking sweet potatoes, those are the healthier choice to go with, they contain a lower glycemic index and carbs than regular potatoes, plus they have more vitamin A. The standout feature of the sweet…

Mexican stuffed sweet potato is all the flavours of a great spicy taco inside a double-baked sweet potato. An easy homemade spicy taco mix to season the meat, a few fresh tomato dice, crunchy lettuce and cheddar and a final smooth touch of sour cream. After a long winter, it’s time to call mother nature for some sun. No better way to bring the heat back than a nice spicy taco, right? What if we merge it into a lovely crunchy, Mexican Stuffed Sweet Potato? The spicy taco mix goes to perfection with the sweetness of the potato, plus you get some excellent fresh and crunchy toppings and sour cream to make it taste fully like a Taco. Homemade Taco Spice-Mix No need to go buy a “Mexican spice mix” at the store; this excellent taco seasoning is often already in your pantry! A simple mix of cumin powder, coriander powder, cayenne pepper, spicy paprika, oregano…

A Beef Asian Bone Broth Soup with rice pho noodles topped with roasted Shiitake, spinach, carrots and scallions for a bowl filled with flavours and a touch of heat! It’s a recipe I wanted to do for a while: Asian Bone Broth Soup. It’s basically to simmer the thick beef bones and knuckles for at least 24 hours up to 3 days. This way, you’ll get all the goods and flavours from the dense bones. The process is pretty much the same as any broth… you sear the bones, add aromatics and wait. Yes… it’s that simple, although you must keep an eye on the liquid level and add some water when it goes too low. Once the broth is done, you can either drink it as it is or do anything with it; for this post, I’ve done an Asian flair broth. I gave the broth a little “pho” mix of…

Bloody Mary is a classic cocktail made of tomato juice, vodka and a touch of heat to bring some veggies into your diet. For those last days of winter, before the heat comes, just a little hot Bloody Mary drink will warm you up! A drink made largely of vegetables is a tad different. It’s a bit of everything; spices, veggies, vodka… Back in Canada, where I’m from, they do a version with Clamato juice (mildly spicy clam broth and tomato juice) instead of simple tomato juice, they call it Bloody Caesar. Since Clamato isn’t easy to find in Europe where I live… I have to use tomato juice, and spice it up! I’ve also added some celery salt, which I think is an important element to this drink. Obviously, living in Spain, I add a little ingredient called “Salsa Espinaler” which is basically a vinegar and paprika sauce instead of…

Indian Cauliflower is a simple side dish made of cauliflower floret covert in Indian Aromatics and grilled in the oven for a healthy, low-carb and powerful side to any Indian food! Cauliflower has a delicate taste and texture; why not give it an edge and spice it up? The usual dish contains potatoes, but for this version, I skip them. Other versions are with deep-fried battered cauliflower, and since I’m on an eternal diet… I should have cut out the frying, so I did a lighter version. I’m not an “extra spicy” kind of person; I like it in moderation… So I used only 3 tsp of Garam Masala spice (which is spicy), but it’s up to you; add one more of those spoons, and you’ll get a rock n-roll Indian Cauliflower! The Spice Mix To ensure the spices envelop the whole veggies correctly, add a tad of water to the…

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,…
