Your Best Spicy Recipe Photos

September 27, 2013

Each week, we'll be scanning through recipes for exceptional photos from our community, and sharing our favorites.

Today: Our favorite community photos from Your Best Spicy Recipe have got us sneaking chilis into everything we eat.

Not for the faint of heart (or tongue), our latest contest revels in spiciness in all its iterations. From ground chilis folded into brownie batter to fresh chilis minced into meat marinades, your recipes -- and their beautiful photos -- have us ready to welcome fall with numb tongues and watering eyes. And that's not a bad thing. Have a glass (or two) of milk on hand as you feast your eyes on some of our favorite photos from the contest, below.
