I LOVE pumpkin! 🎃 I'm a sucker for "Pumpkin Everything Season", when everybody is making pumpkin flavored and pumpkin scented. Pumpkin Lattes, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin lotions, pumpkin candles, pumpkin everything! Pumpkin is one of my favorite vegetables. Its amazingly versatile (hence why its used in almost everything 😉).
I met Sufia, owner of Silly Chilly Hot Sauce, in early October 2017. After tasting all three flavors I was inspired with the possibilities of recipes. People in general are often intimidated by Hot Sauce, afraid of the burn and potential hurt. While that fear is not unreasonable, they don't know what they are missing out on.
So to help make Silly Chilly Hot Sauce feel more accessible, I wanted to share the recipes I used the Hot Sauce in. The following recipe is one of my favorite recipes for Fall, Pumpkin Stew with Apples and Chorizo. I loved the smoothness of the pumpkin balanced with the sweetness of the apples and spiciness of the sausage. I knew the Smoky flavor of the Serrano & Chipotle Hot Sauce would give it an extra kick.
