This is a classic cheesecake recipe, but the subtle flavor of habanero and lime zest really enhances the richness of the dessert. Serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or stream a little chocolate sauce over each slice. The habanero isn’t overwhelmingly hot in this recipe and offers a combination of sweet and heat flavors.
This pecan pie recipe is a little less sweet than most, so it works well with the added zest of the chile powder. If you can’t find Chimayo chile powder, just substitute any New Mexico red chile powder. If you only want a hint of heat, add 1 teaspoon. I usually add 2 teaspoons!
Gwyneth Doland, writer for Fiery Foods Central, shares her recipe for this spicy dessert. This fluffy pie is a lighter alternative to dense, rich pumpkin pie most of us are used to. It’s served chilled, so the red chile kick comes as a pleasant contrast.
This creamy sherbet has a fresh orange flavor and scent and is a refreshing dessert after eating hot and spicy foods.
Using frozen puff pastry makes short work of these delicate pastries. These are best when served immediately but can be filled in advance and refrigerated until serving time. You can also thaw the puff pastry in advance by putting it in the refrigerator overnight.
