You read that right - you can start your day with a delicious spicy Mexican recipe, although this dish works around the clock. Rotisserie chicken with adobo sauce and cinnamon will please any spice fan, and sour cream on top can help take the edge off.

Sweet and Spicy Pork Tacos

This spicy taco recipe is the perfect hybrid of Mexican and Asian cuisines. It pairs perfectly with our great-tasting Gluten-Free Original Tortilla Wraps. Pork in a crockpot with tamari sauce, chili-garlic pepper sauce, and spices will have you drooling all day long. Topped with Asian slaw and a squeeze of orange, and you'll never want bland, average tacos again. 


Spicy Shrimp Cocktail Wraps

This easy-to-make wrap will bring heat and the best elements of the classic appetizer. Chili sauce and Mission’s Jalapeño Cheddar Wraps will turn up the temperature, but the hot pepper sauce will be the ultimate test of your fortitude. You’ll combine mayo, chili sauce, lemon juice, and hot pepper sauce in a medium bowl. After that, stir in shrimp, onion, and celery, and you’re ready to wrap. This spicy recipe is a hit at tailgates and parties.

Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Salsa

Another spicy seafood recipe popular at Mission is our spicy shrimp tacos. We’ve got you covered with recipes for the shrimp, cilantro sauce, and avocado salsa all on one spot. Once you’ve completed the recipes, you’ll be ready to wrap in Mission’s White Corn Tortillas for an authentic, flavorful taste. This spicy recipe goes perfectly with the avocado salsa in case the heat becomes too much. 


Spicy Avocado Pico de Gallo

For a classic spicy Mexican recipe, you can’t go wrong with our pico de gallo. And with a prep time of only 10 minutes, it’s great when time is tight. Simply combine tomatoes, avocado, onions, peppers, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, and salt in a bowl. Let it sit for a few minutes, and add lime juice or salt if needed, and you’re good to go. Mission’s Strips are the perfect chip to handle this thick, delicious spicy dip. 

Spicy White Chili

This hearty chili can be tackled with a spoon, but Mission’s Strips Tortilla Chips are the better way to consume. And with jalapeños, red and green bell peppers, and green chiles, there’s enough heat to make anyone’s cheeks sweat. After chopping and sautéing your veggies, add jalapeños and spices to take the heat to the next level. Adding beans, cheese, and sour cream will make this a hearty dish you’ll crave year-round. If you want to eat it like chili, try crumbling tortilla chips on top like you would with crackers. 

There are tons of delicious recipes on the Mission Foods website that will be a hit with any crowd. From spicy seafood staples to dips that will crank up the temperature on your taste buds, you’ll be sure to find ideas to keep coming back to. Add in the quality, authentic taste of Mission products, and you’ve got an unbeatable combination!
