I'm being TAUNTED here with the chilli pepper temptation!! does the chilli pepper have to take center stage or can it simply be a heat contributing spice in a supporting role!
Kristen M. July 22, 2011
They can be supporting, but they must make their presence known! This is a celebration of peppers, after all.
