Can you handle the heat? On January 16, train your tongue to tolerate even the spiciest of foods. It’s all mind over matter, fellow pork rind lovers. That’s what #HotandSpicyFoodDay is all about! Don’t just muddle your way through another hot dish … savor it! Heat seekers make the most of it with these three tried and true tips:
#1: Take small steps.
Want to really learn to love spice? Try taking small steps and sprinkle a little chili powder on your mac and cheese or go bold with red pepper flakes! You might even want to add a couple of drops of hot sauce into your ketchup.
#2: In case of emergency, have coolants on hand.
When you’ve got a deliciously spicy meal in front of you, don’t take that first bite until you have a safety net in place. Our Hot and Spicy Pork Rind Chicken Wings pair perfectly with a cool ranch dipping sauce that balances the heat with the fiery flavor!
#3: Flavor, flavor, flavor.“The number one mistake most people make when spicing their food is using too much of a spice. Fresh spices, used sparingly, add great flavor,” says Modern Spice author Monica Bhide. Try an inventive recipe like our Huevos con Chicarron to make a one-of-a-kind dish!
