Showing off Spicy {Gettin’ Zesty}


Last week I told you all how I’m going to be getting into the kitchen and becoming more “zesty” with my cooking. I’m pretty sure my husband grinned from ear to ear when he read that post. He LOVES anything spicy!

I went out of town right after that post, but didn’t want to leave him with no food. I have made several spicy dishes over on SheKnows and I left him with the recipes 🙂 If I was a really good wife I would have made them in advance. We see how that worked out.

So, if things are looking dull and you need a new spicy recipes in your life give one of these a try. I’m pretty sure you will LOVE them!

    Girrrrrrrrrl your photos are beautiful! I love the rustic charger plate underneath the nachos in the first picture. I also made a terrible decision by looking at this at work while hungry, and now I want nothing but nachos but I am pretty sure there isn’t cooked & seasoned ground beef in the work fridge (although you never know what may be lurking in there….. :/ )

    And I am completely on board with your sriracha cauliflower. I put that stuff on almost anything for some extra zest. Pizza, sour cream topping, fried rice, soup, marinades…I haven’t tried it in a sweet yet but I feel like I’m well on my way to that level of addiction. SO good.

    This is the perfect “wife’s out for the evening” kind of night for me! Spicy Nachos, cauliflower and tacos? I know how I’m setting up my next night alone! Maybe I’ll save her a plate, although I don’t know if the nachos would make it!
