Some Like it Hot, The Power Station

I love dark chocolate. I love seafood. I love veggies. I love French fries. I love chips. I also love all of these things spicy!  I love, Love,  LOVE hot and spicy foods! 

I don’t know if it has something to do with me being born and raised in South Louisiana, or if it is just in me, but I have a thing for spicy foods. I wouldn’t say I’m an addict, but I do enjoy a little heat with my food. As a kid I had to have hot and spicy chips.  You name the type, it had to be spicy. 


As I got older, I enjoyed spicy seafood. I looked forward to crawfish boils, so I could indulge in spicy boiled crawfish, corn, and potatoes. If I ordered chicken, I had to have spicy.  Mild just wouldn’t do it for me. There’s even a chili sauce that Wendy’s has that I have to have on my fries.

You won’t catch me at any hot and spicy food eating contests or anything, but I have given some rather hot foods a try.  There is a wing restaurant called Pluckers that I feel have the best wings. (I am not a wing fanatic, but when I do have a craving for wings, Pluckers is my spot!) Well,  Pluckers has this sauce called “Fire in the Hole” and it is their hottest sauce.

They have a wall of fame and shame if you choose to eat a certain amount of their wings covered in this sauce.  I haven’t done the challenge, but my brother ordered some and I tried one. My mouth was on fire, and my eyes began to water. I left the rest to my brother to deal with! I love a good hot and spicy sauce, but that was a bit much for me.

Finally, my love for sweets meet my love for heat. That’s right, dark chocolate and spicy red chili. Lindt makes this sweet heat combination that I fell in love with a few years ago.

My husband and I had been trying different types of dark chocolates. The chocolate and nut combination was pretty good, but nothing to brag about. Dark chocolate and fruit was pretty good. Dark chocolate and sea salt will always be a favorite, but nothing compared to the dark chocolate and chili mix.  My husband even baked me a devil’s food cake with cayenne pepper in it, since I had loved the pair together so much! Best cake ever! He is so creative!

    Living in Switzerland, am at the birth place of all Lindt chocky, but I never liked the dark chilli one, it just doesn’t go. Even the cheaper Swiss chocolate manufacturers have started to copy the idea and our local supermarket brand does it as well. Keep the chilli in the carne I say.

    I need to try the chocolate! Great post! Love hot, love dark chocolate and the two in one would be awesome. If you check out mine, I do put some heat in my brownies.

    Personally I like my chocolate with mint or peanut butter. But if you like spice….one of these days I’ll get around to posting some of my Indian recipes. If you like peanuts I’ll make a point of posting my ground spicy dry peanut chutney one soon. We like to put it on Everything Bagels along with cream cheese.

    Awesome post.. I had no idea that there was a chile chocolate! I found a Lindt Sea Salt and chocolate that I love.. and I am not a huge chocolate fan, so that says a lot.
    When I eat hot sauce, I sweat and tear and my nose runs! It is too embarrassing to eat in public, but I love wasabi when I’m at home. (I get teased a lot by my kids though!)
