Next Sunday is Cinco de Mayo, a celebration of Mexico’s vibrant heritage that almost always involves lively fiestas and dishes that are muy caliente. Get ready for a week of festivities with some Scoville-worthy programming on Cooking Channel.
What better way to anticipate this May 5th celebration than by tuning into Cooking Channel to see how Alton Brown makes homemade chili powder (Friday, May 3, at 8:30pm ET) or how Bobby Flay throws a Mexican-inspired brunch (Thursday, May 2, at 9:30pm ET)? You can also visit some of the spiciest kitchens around the country with Unique Eats (Saturday, May 4, at 5pm ET), and be sure to stay tuned for Saturday’s prime-time marathon of Heat Seekers (starting at 8pm ET) as chefs Aaron Sanchez and Roger Mooking explore the fruity, raw heat of chiles. From fiery salsas (Wednesday, May 1, at 8pm ET) to jalapeno-laced guacamole, we have all things hot and spicy this week on Cooking Channel.
Literally turn up the heat in your kitchen with more hot and spicy recipes. Just be sure to keep a glass of milk close by.
