With a brand new season of the hit TV series “The Walking Dead” upon us, nothing beats a Sunday night watch party with friends. And what better way to keep the theme of the night than with some spooky and spicy snacks to share. If you're brain-dead on what to bring to your next showing, try one or more of these creative hot sauce recipes.

Each of these recipes is made with our “Colon Blow Hot Sauce,” which is a Habanero sauce that easily lives up to its name. But for a milder snack, try any one of our delicious hot sauces. With these zombie-themed treats, your snacks will be the life of the party.

Beefy Brains

Don't worry, you're not cooking real cow brains here, but your guests won’t know by looking. This recipe will create a hot nacho dip that goes well with mini-burritos, tacos, or tortilla chips.

Start by cooking ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. Break it apart as you cook and remove from the heat after about 10 minutes, or once the meat is crumbly and brown.

Drain the grease from the skillet into an appropriate container, run the meat briefly under cold water and place it in a large saucepan. Cover your beef with our hot sauce and add any peppers you like to boost the heat index. We find that green and red peppers go best with this particular recipe.

For more taste, add some yellow mustard seeds and tomato juice. Heat the mixture on the stove until it begins to boil, and then simmer for an hour, stirring every few minutes to keep it from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Serve it in a bowl or spoon it over nacho chips with our Gringo Guacamole for the best presentation.

Hot Dog Intestines

If there's one thing that zombies love more than brains, it's intestines. Create your own delicious version with this tasty hot dog recipe.

First of all, buy linked hot dogs from a butcher and keep them connected during the preparation process. Why? So that you can better simulate the look of intestines. Boil them in hot water until they are brown and firm and then pour your sauce into a large frying pan. Use this sauce as an oil as you fry your hot dogs. This will help the sauce soak really deep into the skin of the hot dogs.

Severed Chicken Fingers

Last, but not least, is this severed chicken fingers recipe. This will give you over a pound of delicious (and hot) chicken strips that can be dipped in just about anything—from our Western Ranch to our Danish Bleu Cheese.

Start by cutting boneless chicken breast meat into three-inch-long and half-inch-wide stripes. These are the “severed fingers.” Place them in a bowl of our hot sauce and let them marinate overnight. Take them out of the fridge the next day, and mix flour, black pepper, and paprika together in a large bowl.

Mix this together with an egg and a dash of milk and then dip each chicken finger in the mix. Completely coat the chicken fingers and fry them all in hot oil. Let them cool down for a few minutes before serving. Drizzle with hot sauce for an even bloodier effect.

Any one of these recipes will make you the life of the party, but integrate all three to become the true king of “The Walking Dead.” Your friends will not only find your food delicious but will love how true each is to the show.

Jack Frost is renowned for giving Americans more than just the cold shoulder, especially when January rolls around. It seems at that time, he’s also got a passion for nibbling on ears, finger tips, little noses and more. But there is one thing that Jack and his frosty friends can’t resist. It’s hot sauce. And using the right one may just keep him from nipping off more than he should this blustery season.

So which hot sauce will distract Jack long enough for everyone to bundle up tight? We’re thinking a nice bottle of Spicy Chipotle Sauce ought to keep his taste buds busy. Chipotles traditionally have a multidimensional flavor profile because they are treated differently than raw jalapeno chilies. Picked at the perfect time, they’re dried in smoke-filled chambers that help concentrate the peppers’ inherent spiciness.

Afterward, they’re combined with other premium ingredients to make a sauce that’s guaranteed to melt a man or woman’s frosty heart. At least it will please those who love chilies with Scoville ratings in the 5,000 to 10,000 range. And all of that heat will undoubtedly do more than just raise a person’s core body temperature. It will perk up traditional, winter comfort foods too.

Let’s take steaming crockpots full of white bean chili as examples. They’re normally made with ground turkey or chicken, chili spices and white beans. As good as that sounds, it’s even better with a few teaspoons of Spicy Chipotle Hot Sauce stirred into the mix. And don’t forget to toss some shredded, Chipotle Pepper Wisconsin cheese on top, if you dare. They make incredible white chili accompaniments too.

To grab a bottle of Spicy Chipotle Hot Sauce and give old Jack Frost a run for his icicles that he’ll never forget, please contact Deli Direct today.
