I love these fuckers. I pretty much use them in some fashion daily. I love all types too, anything from Bell Peppers to Habenero Peppers.

Everything from hot sauce to salsa, to roasted peppers to ground cayenne pepper, to pickled jalepenos makes a daily appearance in my meals.

Today, I had sunny side up eggs with Crystal hot sauce (cayenne and vinegar), with ground cayenne pepper.

Have you ever had green chilis from Hatch, New Mexico? Those are quite possibly the best tasting peppers in the world. They all taste the same, but they range in heat from mild to rivaling habeneros.

So what about you? Do you use them frequently? Do you grow them? Make your own salsa? Can you handle the heat of the really hot ones?

What recipes do you use with peppers? Ever make Chili Rellenos?

Just about everything I cook has some form of peppers in it. Today it's crockpot chicken cacciatore with green and yellow bell peppers in it. Nothing better than coming home from work with a meal all ready for you in the crockpot.

im always interested in peppers, but dont know enough about them to feel comfortable using them. we do stuffed peppers a lot with bell peppers, i will use banana peppers and diced jalapeno peppers out of jars for pizzas and stuff, but other then that, im always worried im gonna get the wrong kinda pepper and end up burning the hell out of our mouths because i used too much or something

Bell Peppers stuffed with curried lentils and brown rice ( also some onions and garlic) is another vegman staple. Mmmmmmmm

I love peppers, but I not exactly a gourmet chef so I'm not very adventurous with cooking with peppers. For quick meals, I just use frozen bags of onion and three pepper blend from Kroger and maybe a can of diced green chiles or jalapenos and put it into whatever I am fixing. Depending on what I'm making, I'll throw some fresh peppers in stuff, but usually just bell peppers and poblanos. I also put sriracha sauce on about everything I eat.

As for recipes, I have made a really good fajita soup recently with lots of peppers. Below is what I throw into a crockpot for at least 4 or 5 hours. The first time, I just threw it all together hoping it wouldn't suck. I was very pleased, and I've made a couple of times since. It's extremely easy.

some olive oil
1-2 lbs of cut up chicken breast
1 white onion
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 poblano pepper
can of diced green chili peppers (fresh ones would probably be even better)
can of Rotel tomatoes w/ diced habanero peppers
can of black beans
can of corn
can of creamed corn
can of cream of chicken soup
can of chicken broth
packet of fajita seasoning
2 tbsp or so of chili powder
cup or so of shredded cheese - I used the Kroger Mexican blend
tsp or two of black pepper & sea salt

Even though I have four grocery stores within a one mile radius of my apartment, I've been known to make the short trek to Central Market specifically for their extensive pepper selection.

Great thread!

I enjoy getting some fresh Anaheims and making my own version of a chile relleno, only I use ground chicken.

Maybe try some fresh jalepenos rather than canned / jarred. If you have a gas stove, you can roast them > cut them > add them to something. The flavor works well with Pizza or pretty much any Mexican / TexMex food. They are really good on burgers too.

If you want to go for a little more heat, you could try a serrano pepper. Those are good fresh in salsa.

Until you can build up some tolerance to heat, stay away from habaneros. This is about as hot as it gets for peppers. They are delicious if you can get past the heat...they have a smokey citrus thing going on, but damn, they are hot. If you use these, maybe mix in some sour cream or something to tame the heat.

Thai chilis are hot little fuckers too. They're about 1/2 the size of a pinky finger and pack a big punch. So again, I'd stay away until you can take the heat.

I think fresh jalepenos are a great intro, and they are very versatile. They work on pretty much everything from soups and chili, to sandwiches to salads to steaks.

Or better yet, try one of these two options;

1. Bookmark the Scoville scale and reference it when you need to.
2. Just grow a pair. :)

I trust you but I'm not sure about Doc. If you guys could mail that cash to a third party (say, Pete, another boarder I trust) to hold on to it until I prove that I can get a ghost pepper (from Central Market, I'd imagine), then we have a deal. Pete's the type that would send that cash right back to you both if this thing doesn't go down.

Not even ready to pull yet but these little bastards are beyond pepper spray intensity. We had to pull them inside because of the frost. Ah..indoor growing... :heartbeat:
