Spicy Stuffed Jack-o-Lantern Peppers

Okay, we’ll admit it. These Spicy Stuffed Jack-o-Lantern Peppers are more cute than they are scary. They are, however, a fun and creative way to use up leftover chili from the previous Spicy Crockpot Chili recipe. Here’s how to do it:

Spicy Stuffed Jack-o-Lantern Peppers with Himalayan Chile

Ingredients:

Ingredients:

    For the Seasoning:

  • Spicy Chili, either fresh or refrigerated (see previous recipe)
  • Orange Bell Peppers
  • Mexican 4 blend shredded cheese
  • Tattoo Himalayan Chile for ‘blood’ decoration

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease (or line with parchment paper to make oil-free) a Dutch oven or a casserole dish and use foil later to cover it.
  2. Using a sharp knife carefully cut the top off. Cut away the seed portion that will probably stay with the top. Then cut away any of the whiteish parts on the inside ribs and remove any seeds that fell in.
  3. Now you will use a small paring knife to cut out the face. You can use any Jack-O-Lantern patterns, but be mindful that the holes aren’t too big or your chili will run out through the very holes you just cut. Pro-tip: place one bean in each eye to help with leakage.
  4. Stuff peppers with the cooked chili. It can be hot or from the fridge since you will be cooking them. Top with enough cheese to cover the chili.
  5. Place stuffed peppers in the Dutch oven, (or in a casserole dish), cover and cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until the peppers are easily pierced. You can also place the cut pepper tops on a pan to bake at the same time.
  6. Once they are done baking, they will be hot and oozing, so use a large spoon to scoop them onto a plate. Carefully pour some more Tattoo Himalayan Chile into the eyes and over the edges of the top for an ‘oozy blood’ effect. And you’re done!

Tattoo Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Scotch Bonnet Curry hot sauce

Tattoo Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Scotch Bonnet Curry

We’re not trying to brag or anything (okay, maybe just a little), but this Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Tattoo Scotch Bonnet Curry is one of our favorite fall-time indulgences. The heat in this isn’t too crazy – just enough to add some flavor and make you feel all warm & fuzzy inside and perfect for a chilly, fall day.

Tattoo Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Scotch Bonnet Curry

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • One 4-pound sugar pie pumpkin
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 large or 6 medium garlic cloves, pressed or minced
  • 1 Tbsp Tattoo Scotch Bonnet Curry
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon cloves
  • Tiny dash of cayenne pepper
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups (32 ounces) vegetable broth
  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons honey (maple syrup works too)
  • ¼ cup pepitas (green pumpkin seeds)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Carefully halve the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds.
  2. Slice each pumpkin halve in half to make quarters. Brush or rub 1 tablespoon olive oil over the flesh of the pumpkin and place the quarters, cut sides down, onto the baking sheet. Roast for 40 minutes or longer, until the orange flesh is easily pierced through with a fork. Set it aside to cool for a few minutes.
  3. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add onion, garlic and salt to the skillet. Stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 8 to 10 minutes. In the meantime, peel the pumpkin skin off the pumpkins and discard the skin.
  4. Add the pumpkin flesh, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, Scotch Bonnet Curry hot suace, cayenne pepper, and a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. Use your stirring spoon to break up the pumpkin a bit. Pour in the broth. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, to give the flavors time to meld.
  5. While the soup is cooking, toast the pepitas in a medium skillet over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant, golden and making little popping noises. Be careful not to burn. Transfer pepitas to a bowl.
  6. Once the pumpkin mixture is done cooking, stir in the coconut milk and honey. Remove the soup from heat and let it cool slightly.
  7. You can use an immersion blender to blend this soup in the pot, or transfer to blender, working in batches. Securely fasten the blender’s lid and use a kitchen towel to protect your hand from steam escaping from the top of the blender as you purée the mixture until smooth. Transfer the puréed soup to a serving bowl and repeat with the remaining batches.
  8. Ladle the soup into individual bowls. Drizzle some coconut milk, followed by Scotch Bonnet Curry hot sauce on top. Sprinkle pepitas over the soup and serve. Let leftover soup cool completely before transferring it to a proper storage container and refrigerating it for up to 4 days (leftovers taste even better the next day!). Or, freeze this soup for up to 3 months.

  1. In a food processor, put ½ of the shrimp, egg white, cornstarch, cilantro, green onion, Tattoo Scotch Bonnet Curry Sauce, soy sauce, garlic and salt.
  2. Pulse food processor until a paste is formed (do not over work!)
  3. Chop the other ½ of the shrimp into 1/3” pieces.
  4. Remove paste from food processor and put into large bowl. By hand add the rest of the ingredients (up to the egg roll wrappers) and mix all ingredients well so they are evenly dispersed.
  5. Heat Oil to 340®.
  6. Put about 2 ounces of the filling in the middle of the wrapper with the point of a corner facing you. Fold in the sides, and wrap tightly into a roll, brush the edge with the saved egg yolk whisked with a little water.

  8. Serve hot with a fifty-fifty mix of sweet red chili sauce and Tattoo Scotch Bonnet Curry Sauce for dipping. As always, dig in!

Hint: Traditional egg rolls are served with sweet and sour sauce or sweet red chili sauce mixed with Chinese hot mustard. Here we are substituting the hot mustard for the Tattoo sauce for the dipping sauce.
