Indonesian satays (or sates) are grilled, skewered bite-sized pieces of meat that are eaten as a appetizer or part of the meal itself. They contain meat only and are served with a sauce on the side. When serving a marinade as a sauce that has been used with raw meat, it is essential that it be boiled and simmered for 15 to 20 minutes to kill any bacteria. Or, reserve some of the mixture to be used as a sauce and not use it as the marinade.
Ancho or pasilla chiles can be substituted for the fiery chipotles if you desire a milder sauce. I’ve even used this pesto on pizza in place of the more traditional tomato sauce for a hot, south of the border taste.

To make tomato concassé, place fresh tomatoes in boiling water for a few seconds to loosen the skins, then peel them, remove as many seeds as possible, and squeeze out the juice. Then dice them as finely as possible. Serve this intensely-flavored bisque with a good red wine and sourdough bread. Read Dave DeWitt's entire spicy spring soup article here.

Here's an even spicier version of the Spicy Pumpkin Muffin published in The Habanero Cookbook using the elusive but delicious jolokia chile!
Here is the version of pika from former Dutch Guiana. If you were in Bonaire, you would use either Scotch bonnets or the much milder Madame Jeanette. The Scotch bonnets will overpower the flavor of the other when cooked if you use both. I have adapted this for American kitchens.
The flavor of peppers dominates this powerful, spiced up broth. This recipe can also be used as a vegetarian stock for making other soups and stews. It is an elegant example of a first course soup that can precede any entree.
Peanut lovers who coincidentally love chicken can rejoice as this recipe combines the two flavors perfectly, and the honey adds the perfect degree of sweetness. (Courtesy of Peanut Butter & Co.)
Ideal as a starter (appetizer) course, these crispy chicken wings can also be prepared under the broiler on your stove.
Here’s another great recipe from Russell Siu that’s incredibly easy to make. You can add some heat by adding a hotter sauce to the sweet chile sauce. Serve these tidbits over rice accompanied by a spinach salad.
