We Americans pride ourselves on being an adventurous people, and this is especially true when it comes to food. Here's a collection of recipes dedicated to those who like their flavors big and bold.
This super-easy and delicious spicy Asian-glazed ling cod recipe will require a trip to the nearest upscale grocery or health food store, but one taste and you won't regret the effort!
Sweet, tart pineapple juice and spicy, smoky chipotle combine to give this pork tenderloin recipe a bright south-of-the-border flavor.
This spicy grilled shrimp recipe is an easy, but impressive, seafood dish. A few hours in the spicy marinade, and these shrimp are ready for the fire.
Bison is a low-fat, full-flavored, and delicious change of pace from the usual beef in this meatball recipe. The spicy orange glaze works so well with the subtle gaminess of the buffalo meat, but you can also use beef if you like.
This is a variation on the classic Buffalo chicken wings recipe. This simple hot wings recipe is perfect for any party, and works with a number of dips.
This step-by-step recipe is low in fat, high in flavor, and very easy. It's a great side dish for so many things; from those barbecued ribs in summer, to your Thanksgiving turkey in the fall.
When you think comfort food, you probably don't think of shrimp, but this great dish from South Carolina's "Lowcountry" may change your mind. Shrimp and grits can be as made as spicy or mild as you like.
This gumbo recipe is a spicy, meaty, comforting Cajun stew, usually served with rice. Andouille sausage is a traditional ingredient in gumbo recipes, but any spicy, smoked sausage will work in this classic American recipe.
Kale is one of the most nutritious greens out there, and pairs perfectly with sausage in this very hearty spicy sausage and kale soup.
