Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Potato Skins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #appetizer #recipe

Two appetizers become one! … imagine the spicy goodness of buffalo chicken stuffed into a crispy potato skin shell … with melted blue cheese crumbles on top. You can make this with chicken, or, if you’re vegetarian (or a little more adventurous), try the cauliflower version. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. I seriously love […]

Hurts so Good 3-Pepper Heirloom Salsa

Hurts so Good 3-Pepper Heirloom Tomato Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #hot #salsa #recipe

Mixing three hot peppers along with low-acid heirloom tomatoes makes for a hot, spicy salsa that lingers on your tongue, clears out your sinuses and yes, hurts just a little (in a good sort of way). You can adjust up or down the amount of peppers that you use to control the heat to your […]


Baked Buffalo Chicken Wontons

Baked Buffalo Chicken Wontons ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #buffalochicken #appetizer #recipe

with blue cheese crumbles Like so many others, I am totally smitten with buffalo chicken. Not so much in wing form, because buffalo chicken wings annoy me. They’re too little and fatty and messy and boney for my tastes, but just about anything else buffalo chicken is heaven in my book. I have some wonton wrappers in […]


Wall Flower Fudge {Red Chile Fudge}

Wall Flower Fudge {Red Chile Fudge} ~ she'll leave you wanting more ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #fudge #recipe

You see her from across the room.  She’s a bit plain and unassuming … not like the others in her company.  You think this one will not hurt you so you ask her to dance. The dance starts out slow … just like so many others, but then things change!  She’s a bit spicy and […]


Five Alarm Apple Hot Pepper Jam

Five Alarm Apple Hot Pepper Jam ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #sweet #apple #jalapeno #jam #recipe

I’m doing my best to use the plethora of fresh garden produce I have in my fridge before it goes bad. I fell behind on the peppers; they were starting to sag … so I was trying to think of what to do with them. Someone posted a hot pepper jelly recipe (I think it was […]


Cowhorn Queso with Corn

Cowhorn Queso with Corn ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #queso #cheese #dip #recipe

I’m quite partial to a good chile con queso and have made many a pot of this hot spicy cheesy dip over the years. Each time I seem to make it a little differently. When I found my mom and dad had cowhorn peppers in their garden, I gathered several of these long hot cayenne peppers […]


Brown Sugar Buffalo Chex Mix

Brown Sugar Buffalo Chex Mix ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls Party Mix #Recipe

I’ve discovered that brown sugar mixed with spicy hot sauce makes for a magical combination … you don’t need a lot of brown sugar or a lot of hot sauce … just the two together go SO perfectly. I made this Chex mix simply because I had a lot of chex in my cupboard that […]


Buffalo Chicken Chickpea Salad

Buffalo Chicken Chickpea Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #salad #recipe

Chicken salad with a kick! Stirring in some buffalo chicken sauce give this crunchy chicken salad that buffalo hot wings taste, without all the fat and extra calories. A bit of celery and carrot add the crunch factor. For extra protein and fiber, this recipe uses hummus in place of some of the mayonnaise (thus […]

with avocado and a blue cheese yogurt dressing Buffalo chicken wings meets salad! A cool crunchy salad with hot spicy buffalo chicken bites, sweet onions, little juicy tomatoes, and creamy avocado, topped with creamy blue cheese yogurt dressing and blue cheese crumbles. I “discovered” a salad sort of like this at Buffalo Wild Wings. My […]


Italian Hot Chocolate {Cioccolata Calda}

Italian Hot Chocolate {Cioccolata Calda} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #chocolate #recipe

This recipe is from La Cucina Prima Donna. The most incredibly rich, decadent hot chocolate I have ever tasted … it seriously tastes like melted chocolate! My daughter and I discovered our tummies weren’t used to such richness, though, so we thinned it with some low-fat milk and re-warmed our mugs. I left the recipe […]


Hot Sweet Brandied Citrus Tea

Hot Sweet Brandied Citrus Tea ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #cocktail #recipe

A hot, relaxing cocktail made with herbal orange tea, brandy and kumquat syrup. The perfect nightcap on a cold winter’s night. I used to have a glass of wine before going to bed. It’s a habit that helps relax me so I can get to sleep faster. But one night I was chilled and decided […]
