Spicy Pulled Pork Tacos With Sweet Salsa

Mixing spicy and sweet is always a favorite combo of ours. Take these slow cooker pulled pork tacos. The pork gets some serious smoky heat through a healthy portion of chipotle peppers with adobo sauce. And the salsa made with cherries and peaches just complements it perfectly. It’s the type of meal that everyone will be looking forward to all day long.

Do you want it milder or spicier? You can easily control the heat by changing the amount of chipotle peppers used when cooking the pork or the amount  of jalapeño pepper in the salsa.

Mango habanero hot sauce

Mango Habanero Hot Sauce

Sweet zip!

If you like your hot sauce to have a little tropical flair, then there are few that deliver more than a mango habanero hot sauce. The extreme heat is a perfect match with tropical sweetness. And there’s even a slight hint of savory Indian cuisine and Tex Mex in this recipe with the addition of a dash of both chili and curry powders.

You can use this sauce in a lot of ways. The tropical sweetness makes mango habanero hot sauce a perfect dipper for chicken satay and chicken fingers. The same goes for beef skewers (the curry twist really shines here.) You can also use this hot sauce as a barbecue glaze, too. It’s surprisingly refreshing with barbecue compared to some of the heavier ketchup and molasses based sauces out there. And don’t forget the burgers. Skip the traditional ketchup and mustard and dash a little of this hot sauce on instead. You’ll be surprised with the results.

Obviously mango habanero hot sauce is super tasty, but always remember that habanero peppers sit at the upper end of the pepper scale. Be careful when preparing. Wear kitchen gloves and know how to treat chili burn just in case.

Crushed Red Pepper

Crushed Red Pepper Recipe

Crushed red pepper is so much more than a pizza-topping staple. It can be used in nearly any dish to give a dash of unexpected heat. Sure, it’s easy to pick up a big bottle of red pepper flakes from the store, but if you’re truly adventurous, you can make your own. You can then get your perfect level of heat, and since the pepper is crushed fresh, it’s the freshest tasting too.

If you have leftover hot peppers from your garden, this is an excellent way to make use of them. Crushed red pepper keeps for a long time, so you’ll be able to enjoy your harvest all winter long.
