A "high tea" treat in South Africa, this spicy pastry of sorts originated in India but was transferred to South Africa by railway workers. Feel free to add more heat by increasing the amount of cayenne.
Banana peppers are a Southern favorite and you can fry them either fresh or pickled. This is a perfect accompaniment to roasted ham or fried chicken. Since banana peppers are mild, use yellow wax hots for spicier fried peppers.

This stuff freezes well, it’s hearty, and you can adjust the heat level easily up or down, simply by adding more or less fresh habanero chile. The baseline heat level of the sausage is only warm, so if you want a real kick, add at least half a habanero to the pot. This features Mulay’s Killer Hot Italian Sausage, but you can use your favorite spicy Italian sausage.

This is the classic enchilada dish served at the early 1960s Albuquerque restaurant, Videz, owned by Pete Benavidez. The restaurant was torn down to make way for Interstate 40, but the recipe lives on. From the article Albuquerque's Food History is All About Chiles.
This intriguing dish violates at least two laws Americans have concerning steak: never season it heavily and never fry it in a pan. But since the taste of this steak is so remarkable, we'll forget the rules. Three varieties of pepper are recommended, but it works just fine using only coarsely crushed black peppercorns. Varying the hot sauce used can produce peppered steaks with intriguingly different flavors. Also, experiment by using brown, red, or rose peppercorns.
