Paleo Mexican Scrambled Eggs

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how much I love spicy food. I’m that girl who asks for hot sauce every time when dining out at a restaurant. So when I had an opportunity to check out Don Victor®‘s hot sauces and create a recipe using one of them, I was thrilled to take part in it.

I was especially intrigued with these hot sauces because they are made with piquin peppers, which are very small peppers from northern Mexico. I’ve never heard of them and I’m always down for trying new foods, and Don Victor®‘s sauces are the only ones you will find on the market that are made entirely from this pepper. So unique and special, right?

I tried out 3 of their sauces: Don Victor® Red Piquin Hot Sauce, Don Victor® Extra Hot Piquin Hot Sauce, and Don Victor® Green Piquin Hot Sauce. I decided to use the Red Piquin Hot Sauce, because I loved how it packed a bright and spicy punch, with just the right about amount of dry, smoky heat that goes well with anything. Also, I love how simple and clean the ingredients are, which is the first thing I look at when I’m choosing a new product:

Red piquin pepper, water, carrot, apple cider vinegar, garlic, salt, oregano, preservatives

One of the first meals I made using the hot sauce was this Paleo Mexican Scrambled Eggs. I’m usually not a huge fan of scrambled eggs (I prefer my yolks runny and uncooked), so if I do make it, it has to extra yummy. Well, thanks to the addition of spices and Don Victor® Red Piquin Hot Sauce, I ended up making a scrambled eggs recipe that was spicy, tasty, and so full of flavor.

Instant Pot or Slow Cooker Paleo Buffalo Chicken Chili

This spicy and delicious Paleo Buffalo Chicken Chili is an easy set-it-and-forget-it meal whether you use a slow cooker or the Instant Pot!

Instant Pot or Slow Cooker Paleo Buffalo Chicken Chili

It’s officially soup season and I couldn’t be happier. Ever since I bought myself an Instant Pot, soup and stew-making has been incredibly easy especially on busy weekdays. I love that it also has a slow cooker function so I was able to test out this recipe using both methods and it turned out fabulous each time.

This Paleo Buffalo Chicken Chili is the result of combining my 2 loves: buffalo chicken and a good hearty chili. I just love how each spoonful of chili has a chock full of yummy ingredients, and adding the spicy, addicting flavor of buffalo sauce just seemed like a magical combo. And it was!

The chili itself is really delicious, but the various toppings you can add to it brings out the flavors and textures even more. I really like to load on the toppings as you can see, but my husband kept it simple with just a slice of toast to enjoy this Paleo Buffalo Chicken Chili. The possibilities are endless so top it with whatever your heart desires. I listed some delicious options in the recipe below.

Between the slow cooker and the Instant Pot method, I do like the Instant Pot better because it literally takes a fraction of the time and the texture is more favorable. I find that slow cooking food makes them a little bit more “mushy,” but I know some people don’t mind this. Nevertheless, both methods yield a delicious and filling chili and you’ll want to eat it all the time during the colder months!

Spicy Garlic Sauce Chicken Wings (Paleo)

This copycat paleo version of Buffalo Wild Wings’ Spicy Garlic Sauce Chicken Wings taste so much like the real deal without the inflammatory oils and artificial ingredients!

Spicy Garlic Sauce Chicken Wings Paleo

Recently, I went with my husband to Buffalo Wild Wings while we were in Michigan to visit his family. I think I’ve been to BWW maybe 3 times in my life, but this is one of Charlie’s favorite spots that he used to go to all the time in college.

When we were there recently, Charlie insisted on getting the wings with Spicy Garlic Sauce and claimed that it was his favorite. Luckily, our server assured me that the sauce is gluten and dairy free, so I got to try it out for the first time. I did enjoy the wings, but of course, I couldn’t help wondering what the heck was actually in the sauce.

I later searched the ingredients on Buffalo Wild Wings’ website and here’s what I found to be present in the Spicy Garlic Sauce:

CAYENNE RED PEPPER, DISTILLED VINEGAR, WATER, SOYBEAN OIL, SALT, GARLIC (INCLUDING DEHYDRATED), MODIFIED CORN STARCH, EGG YOLK, XANTHAN GUM, SPICES, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, DEHYDRATED ONION, CITRIC ACID, MOLASSES, CORN SYRUP, CARAMEL COLOR, SUGAR, TAMARIND, CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA ADDED TO PROTECT FLAVOR

Yikes. Soybean oil, corn starch, artificial flavors, corn syrup, caramel color, and calcium disodium EDTA??

No thank you. Those are harmful ingredients that cause inflammation and burden the liver, causing toxicity after long term use.

So, in order to satisfy the husband’s spicy wing cravings, I decided to recreate the Spicy Garlic Sauce at home, and the result is pretty darn fantastic.

This sauce is different than the one for regular buffalo wings in that it’s thicker and creamier, and super garlicky. It’s also more spicy in that fiery way that can only be achieved with cayenne peppers. If you can’t handle spicy foods, you can reduce or omit the cayenne pepper in this recipe. But adding it in resembles the original version of the Spicy Garlic Sauce better, and we like that crazy spiciness in our household.

I’m happy to report that Charlie loved these wings and even said, “Your best one yet,” afterwards. So, if you are craving Buffalo Wild Wings but want to save money and avoid the shady ingredients in their sauces, I highly recommend this recipe because it really does taste so much like the original!
