Peanut butter from hell & umpteen more pepper recipes

rworange | Aug 12, 2006 02:41 AM

I've been checking out local Mexican markets and some how wound up with packets and packets of different dried chile powders and flakes. What to do?

The pepper fool to the rescue.

This site has hundreds of pepper recipes ... fresh, dried, paste, powder ... well, almost any form. It also spans every ethnicity with some fusion in there (Grilled Shrimp Bruschetta with Salsa Fresca ... Egyptian Chili ... Asian Guacamole).

There are also a lot of links to pepper sources. The site does look like it hasn't been updated in a while. There's a restaurant section that has a few places no longer exist.

However, the recipe list is worth looking at.

One idea was adding hot pepper to peanut butter.

I haven't made the actual peanut butter from hell recipe yet which has peanut butter mixed with crushed garlic, dried onion, garlic powder, sesame seeds, honey, lemon juice, soy sauce & Habanero powder (or hot red chili powder).

What I have tried is mixing peanut butter with honey and different hot powdered pepper ... the chipotle is fantastic.

Even with my dumbed down version it is like the site says ...

"It really does work, and is pretty tasty also ... three different things that happen. First is that your taste buds get the sweet from the honey. Second a mild taste of peanut butter. THEN **KABOOM** RED PEPPER! ... It should take from a count of eight to ten seconds for the grenade to go off"

I'm giving the Microwave Chile Brittle a try next ... or maybe a take on the Triple By-Pass Grits.
