Food Blog Monday: Mangos Chili and Z

I haven’t done a Food Blog Monday post in awhile, but this blog impressed me so much I wanted to share it with you.

Mangos Chili and Z is written by Lea Ann Brown. She brings a great voice to the Colorado community with beautiful pictures and insightful recipes and reviews.

One recent spicy recipe of hers is her Buffalo Shrimp and Blue Cheese Appetizer. Incredibly simple and so easy to make, these little fiery shrimps are delicious. Here’s a pic of our finished shrimps. (Thanks Emeril.)

While Lea Ann made her buffalo shrimp with Sticky Brand Sauces’ Hot Jolokia BBQ sauce, we had a bottle of Satan’s Rage Ghost Pepper Sauce on hand. Hot stuff!

We also made a batch of the shrimp with Frank’s RedHot Wings Hot Buffalo sauce… for comparison. Also delicious and very easy to find at your grocers.

Here is the link to Lea Ann’s Buffalo Wing style shrimp recipe:

We prefer our own blue cheese recipe:

She also makes homemade English Muffins:

And she makes guacamole:

Check out Lea Ann’s Mangos Chili and Z blog for the recipe for these easy appetizers and tell her Brian from sent you.
