I ruined dinner

EricMM | Aug 25, 2010 09:12 AM

So last night I made a picadillo, my recipe...using grass fed beef, onions, capers, olives, apples, mango. Usually turns out great. But instead of adding my usual hot pepper, I decided to use one of my home grown chocolate bhut jolokias. I was very careful.... Cut off the top, removed the seeds and membranes, sauteed the otherwise uncut pepper in olive oil along with my garlic and onions. Left it in maybe 5 minutes and removed it before adding the chicken broth. My wife will never forgive me....it was unbearably hot! And I love hot food....my wife gave up after 2 bites...I took a 2nd portion because I felt guilty about wasting food...and besides, I needed something to eat. Be very careful with these peppers!
I grew a whole assortment of super-hot peppers this year...besides these, also yellow bhut jolokia, trinidad scorpion, naga morich, 7 pot, and black habanero.
