How About Them Peppers?!

With the Super Bowl just around the corner why not invite the peppers to your party? I am of course talking about Cayenne and Chipotle, which are great additions to food that can only enhance the flavor.

Cayenne and Chipotle are great to add as a pinch to any recipe to give that extra kick. Because of the amount of vitamin B6 that these peppers provide they are great metabolism boosters too. They also both stimulate blood flow and cayenne pepper can distract nerves from arthritis pain if applied directly to the skin. They can both provide relief of headaches as well.

Cayenne pepper can also reduce cholesterol levels, aid in stomach pains, intestinal issues and can rid sinuses of mucus.

Chipotle pepper is a great preventative for cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, certain cancers, osteoporosis, macular degeneration as well as night blindness.

Cayenne Pepper is great on wings as I said in the email, so how could I not give you a wing recipe?

Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings:

3/4 cup of All Purpose Flour

1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper power

1/2 tsp Garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

20 chicken wings

1/2 cup melted butter

1/2 Hot Sauce 

In a ziploc bag combine flour, cayenne, garlic, and salt shake to combine. Then add chicken wings and shake to coat. Put in the refrigerator for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit

Combine the butter and the hot sauce after an hour take wings out of the refrigerator and coat the wings in the butter mixture and place on an oven safe pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Put wings in oven for 30 minutes and then take out and dip in butter mixture again and put back in the oven for another 20 minutes. This is the perfect time for chicken wings in the oven from finding out myself. They are still juicy and are slightly crispy too!

Chipotle pepper has a sweeter taste and is great to make those bar nuts that everyone loves to munch on!

Honey-Chipotle Pecans:

1/2 cup of honey 

1/4 cup Coconut Palm Sugar (Our personal preference)

1 tsp ground chipotle 

2 cups pecan halves 

Coarse Kosher Salt 

Aniseed

Boil and stir honey, sugar, and chipotle until sugar is dissolved. Add pecans and stir until the syrup begins to thicken and get dark. This can also have a little bit of smoke too.

Lay out on aluminum foil and spread with a fork and sprinkle with salt and aniseed. let cool and then serve.
