Although you won't see me enter in a hot-wing eating contest, and I can't even handle a full ladle of the hot salsa at Chipotle, I do love food that has some spice. Both of these dishes from this week packed a little punch.
1. Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken from Skinnytaste. Any time you combine chicken, black beans, and corn in some sort of spicy sauce, it's a winner in my book. It's even better when you just throw everything into the crock pot and call it a day. The only thing I would have changed about this is that I should have added some avocado to go on top...yum!
2. Spicy Pork Pad Thai from Budget Bytes. I'm far from an expert on authentic Asian cuisine, so I have no idea if this is what pad Thai is "supposed" to taste like. But I've had a few different versions, and this is one I definitely like! I usually use sliced chicken or pork in dishes like this, so the ground pork was a nice change-up. I used sugar snap peas, but any veggie you have on hand would work too.
Do you like spicy food?
