I ain't talking Jerry Lee Lewis here. These little appetizers can have quite a kick. The degree of "hotness" depends on the amount of Tabasco and cayenne pepper used. If you're like most of my family, you'll say "bring on the heat!" But be careful, too much can lead to increased beverage consumption.
