Pressure Cooker Chicken Wings
Use a pressure cooker to make quick, fall-off-the-bone tender chicken wings, then finish them up in the broiler for crispy skin. Here is the recipe. I have a THING for chicken wings. Love them. Maybe it's an addiction. There is something about them that embodies the perfect bite we're always looking for, with crispy skin, meat that pulls right away from the bone (when done right), and a flavor blast from whatever sauce you've decided to work with that day. How wonderful that chicken wings can be served with practically ANY type of sauce. Wing joints abound with mega menus dedicated specifically to chicken wings, with sometimes dozens and dozens of sauce options. Yes!
Juicy Turkey Tacos
A recipe for quick and easy ground turkey tacos that are juicy, healthy, and downright satisfying. Most of you know my love for ground turkey by now. I'm in LOVE with turkey burgers (see one of my favorite turkey burger recipes) and we cook with turkey constantly. As much as we both love beef, turkey is a lower calorie option that helps to keep the weight down. So! Bring on the Turkey Tacos. I can't say enough good things about turkey tacos. They're healthy, low-calorie, inexpensive to make, super quick and easy to prepare, and flat out delicious. Seriously, you can have this recipe done in about 20 minutes or less. The only thing holding you back is how many fixings you decide to serve up.
Roasted Red Jalapeno Pepper Hot Sauce
A homemade hot sauce recipe made with roasted red jalapeno peppers, garlic, tomato and red wine vinegar. This is one of the most addicting hot sauces I've ever made. I already need another batch! Happy New Year, friends! This is a very important post. It is the first of 2016, a brand new year, and there were so many possible recipes for us to post. As food bloggers, we think about food ALL THE TIME. It's just what we do, and we LOVE it. We're sure you could tell. But! What to post? We considered posting something light and healthy to kick off the new year with good eating habits. Nothing wrong with that. We like the watch our waistlines and what better time to recommit? We also considered posting a Blood Mary recipe. Patty is an UH-MAZING Bloody Mary mixologist. Believe me when I say that. She has some homemade mixes coming up very soon. Can't wait for those! See Patty's Perfect Bloody Mary Recipe. Oh yeah!
A tart and citrusy vodka shot made with plenty of freshly squeezed grapefruit, triple sec, and your favorite vodka. A twist on an old recipe, the Kamikaze. Hey all! It’s your mixologist, Patty, back at it again with another bold drink recipe, this one just in time for the New Year celebration. Today we have a variation on an old classic - The Kamikaze. The Kamikaze is a shot that will be around forever. It’s simple and uses typical ingredients often available in anyone’s home bar. Traditionally, it is made with vodka, triple sec and lime juice. Mike has been enjoying kamikazes since the old college days and still enjoys one every now and then.

Alligator Sausage Sliders with Roasted Red Pepper Remoulade
Alligator sliders, you say? Absolutely! These are easy. Turn your alligator sausage into mini burgers with this recipe, served with roasted red pepper remoulade and quick pickled cucumbers. This recipe is special to me because it isn't everyday you get to cook with alligator. Have you ever cooked with alligator? I have in the past, though it has only been with ground meat. I haven't yet had the opportunity to cook with any other type, but who knows? Perhaps in the near future! When Patty and I visit Florida, we always make a point to stop at a particular restaurant right along the water that serves up some of the most delicious gator sausage you can find. It is perfectly seasoned and served with a red pepper remoulade. It's an excellent lunch and one of Patty's all-time favorite meals.
Creamy-Crunchy Jalapeno Popper Dip
This is not your average jalapeno popper dip recipe, with additional must-have seasonings, loads of creamy cheese and plenty of jalapeno peppers. It's a tray of jalapeno poppers rolled up into an exciting, crowd-pleasing dip. I have made a lot of jalapeno popper dips in my life. I mean, a LOT. It's a simple go-to recipe that you can whip together quick and easy for any type of party. And it's popular. How could it not be? You have cream cheese in there, along with cheddar cheese, and jalapeno peppers, one of the best chili peppers on the face of the planet. I will forever shout out the awesomeness of jalapeno peppers and declare my love for them. I LOVE JALAPENOS!
Caribbean-Style Flame Roasted Pepper Bisque with Seared Shrimp
This post is sponsored by New Mexican Connection. Rich and smoky flame roasted chili peppers straight from New Mexico. We have a fairly obvious perspective here at Chili Pepper Madness. Our name alone implies that we’re flat out crazy for chili peppers, which is true, though it is more appropriate to say we’re in love with deep, bold flavors. It just so happens that most peppers HAVE deep, bold flavors, particularly when you treat them properly. Major goal here. You have to do it right.
Lemon Chicken Piccata with Capers and Peppers
Hi everybody, it’s Patty. Most of our posts are from Mike because I leave the cooking to him. But he leaves the drinks to me. I’ve been dubbed the neighborhood mixologist and when I realized that today was National Sangria Day, and I just happened to be going to a neighborhood party, it was a no brainer.
How to Make Chili Oil
I purchase chili oils for all sorts of recipes. They're pretty standard in certain parts of the world. They figure prominently in Chinese and Japanese cooking, and in many parts of Asia, although the Italians enjoy their own version as well. I like to always have a good brand on hand, but sometimes it is more efficient to make your own when you need a small batch, or even as a gift. Perfect for this time of year, right?
Cranberry-Rosemary Moscow Mule
Hey all! Patty here again with your Thirsty Thirteenth cocktail. It’s December and the holidays are upon us so I decided to focus on a popular holiday ingredient - Cranberries. This recipe utilizes some really great flavors that go well together. I usually like to bring you some slightly complex drinks that require just a bit of effort because anyone can pour a few ingredients in a glass and shake it. Don't worry, it will be worth the effort. The payoff is a crazy YUM-filled drink. I love infusing alcohols with different ingredients or making simple syrups. It’s unbelievable how easy it is to make simple syrups. I guess that’s why they are called “Simple”? LOL.
Zesty Leek and Potato Soup
Bring on the leeks! It isn't everyday that most people cook with leeks. Such a shame. Leeks are quite tasty, even if they are bit odd looking, with their floppy green stalks that resemble a cross between a corn stalk and a flapping sea monster. Or maybe a gigantic green onion. Even so, there is good flavor in there. They're actually rather mild, similar to an onion but much tamer. Where a green onion will give you a bit of a bite, leeks are not very assertive and pair very nicely with potatoes and bell peppers. Of course we had to add a couple jalapenos and some Cajun seasonings to up the "zest" factor. Hey, we like it bold! But you'll still get plenty of that leek flavor, though it is slightly pepper forward.
Cheesy Tex-Mex Mashed Potatoes - "Papas con Chile"
Nom Nom. Seriously. NOM! This is an older recipe of ours and I can't believe I haven't shared it with you all yet. Funny thing is, I've been making versions of this mashed potato recipe for years, in different iterations, and never realized it was a popular Tex-Mex dish. Thinking back, how could it not be! Consider - a recipe for very cheesy mashed potatoes made with jalapeno peppers, red bell pepper, onion, garlic, and spicy chorizo. So many of my favorite ingredients. Yes! Count me in! Twice!
