Cooking with HEAT!

Yes, we love to cook with HEAT!

All kinds of heat... Ghost Peppers, Habanero's, Scorpions, Fresno's, Serrano's, Thai Chiles, Jalapeno's (even though we treat those like breath mints now) and most recently, the new Carolina Reaper Peppers, which come on at 1,500,000 units on the Scoville scale, (50% hotter than the Ghost Peppers), we love cooking with these!

There is just something about food with heat! It opens up the senses, it makes you feel alive!

Now, we will not out out food that is just hot, it has to have flavor.. or why even do it!

For the past year, we have been doing our 'Pop-up/Flash' restaurants (En Fuego) around the Grand Valley of Western Colorado, at Peach Street Distillers in Palisade and at The VFW Post in Grand Junction, trying to put out some of the tastiest and hottest food possible! We are doing these for a few reasons, first and foremost.. We love to cook with HEAT! and secondly, we have been developing the menu for the restaurant that we want to open in 2015.

We have incorporated Heat in everything that we put out, ranging from 'Flamin Burgers' (Ground Angus, Ground Bacon, Ghost Pepper Sauce, fried in Ghost Pepper oil and more), Atomic Wings (made with Carolina Reaper Peppers, we actually made people wear gloves and sign releases!), Ghost Pepper fries served with a Trinidad Scorpion Sauce, we even made Habanero Mango Popsicles, among many, many other offerings.

Yeah, we have developed a nice following!

The next Pop-Up is at VFW Post 1247 at 14th & Ute in Grand Junction on November 11th, from 5 - 7 pm. (Become a fan of ours on Facebook, where we announce such things!).

We will continue to cook with HEAT, continue to push the pallettes to extremes and have some fun!
