3 Spiciest Foods to Add to Your Next Party

Give your party guests something to talk about in the way of food at your next soiree. 

Food is an integral part of any gathering, but when you throw in heat elements it cranks up the fun. There are many creative culinary ways to incorporate spicy foods into your next appetizer or dessert display. These spicy snacks are both delicious and easy to eat. 

Pepper Jelly 
Pepper jelly is great because it provides a sweet and spicy combination that brings a whole lot of flavor without sacrificing a kick of heat. 
Pepper jelly is made with peppers, salt, and sugar in a pectin or vinegar base. Things like fruits, bacon, and even flavorings like bourbon can be added to it to achieve many types of sweet and spicy balances. 
Habanero jelly or chipotle jelly can be combined with cream cheese to make a dip or spread suitable for chips, crackers, or crostini. 
You can also utilize the jelly to slather over single-serve meatballs or chicken skewers. 
If you’d prefer a hot dessert, mix pepper jelly with ricotta or cream cheese and fill up tiny phyllo dough cups for baking. 

Spicy Skewers 
You can do many things with a skewer, from sweet to savory combinations that are handheld eats. 
Pair prawns with bits of chorizo, and brush on a spicy apple dip made of applesauce, honey, and chili flakes. 
If seafood isn’t your thing, you can also pair spicy chorizo with Manchego cheese and sharp briny green olives. 
Make golden chicken skewers by seasoning bite size chicken pieces with coriander, cumin, sesame seeds, paprika, and garlic. Serve them with tzatziki and mint. 
Another great use of chicken is to make buffalo chicken pieces and skewer them with grilled onions and peppers. 
Grab cream or goat cheese stuffed peppers and skewer them alongside salami and artichoke pieces for a flavorful bite. 

Pumped Up Party Mix 
Party mix is great to have in a huge bowl for all to take from and can involve many different types of snack pieces. 
It’s typically made with rice, corn, or wheat Chex; lightly salted nuts; small pretzels or pretzel rods; cheese crackers; bagel chips; and seasoning. 
You can also add Bugles, Goldfish Crackers, any variety of Cheetos, or even Doritos for extra flavors in the mix. 
To take it to the next level, melt together one-half cup of butter with two tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, two tablespoons of your choice of hot sauce, one teaspoon each of garlic and onion powder, one-quarter teaspoon of smoked paprika, and salt and pepper to taste. 
Add this into your cereal mixture and stir to combine, coating every piece. 
Divide this mix among baking pans lined with parchment paper and bake at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately an hour, stirring up the mix every 15 minutes. 
Not only is this delicious, but if you have leftovers the mix can be stored in an airtight container for up to three weeks.
