Spicy Food Challenge #1: Austen and Alison take on S'wings
I love spicy food. This is Alison speaking (writing?), and I'll put spicy enhancers on almost anything. Pasta, salad, eggs, chili, rice and beans, fish, burgers, anything. I love crushed red pepper, cayenne, and essentially any kind of red, vinegar-y hot sauce. So naturally I'm drawn to spicy death traps on the menu at any restaurant. Our editorial assistant Austen (more from him later) is on the same page when it comes to spicy food, so we brainstormed up this spicy food challenge idea. First up, the chicken tenders from S'wings, slathered in their Death sauce. Death is above S'issie, S'wings and S'mokin, the three main levels of buffalo sauce offered. They didn't even bother coming up with a cute S-word for it. S'uicide? Close. It's the habaneros that turn this sauce from regular buffalo to face-melting.
