Hot, spicy foods are enjoyed by many and can be found in restaurants and on dinner tables across the globe. Home cooks can take the heat up a notch with spicy smoked peppers that turn any meal into something delicious.
From omelets to chili to marinades, adding peppery spice imparts a smoky, sweet and alluring flavor to dishes. Traditional recipes can also be given a bit of heat.
