Spicy Brussels Sprouts

Barbara C


I love spicy food but living in Phoenix, Arizona it's hard to find spicy without burning your mouth off. I found this recipe in a YouTube video and adapted it to my liking. Serve hot or cold. Once they cool there is very little sauce left. I haven't reheated so not sure what happens then, I LOVE them cold! ENJOY!
