Maybe you’re tired of the same old flavors in your chili, or just would like a change of pace for your cooking, or a different family outing.
How about planning some ‘hot trips’ for next year? (lo siento – sorry)
I was disappointed that there weren’t more sites already updated on the internet, but I did find several excursions that sounded interesting:
Hops n’ Hot Sauce Festival
Saturday, January 12, 2019 starting at 11:00 AM
Held indoors at the Spindle Top Brewery in Houston, it’s also billed as family-friendly with an area set aside for the kids, a DJ playing the hits all day, live entertainment and a Hot Pepper Eating Contest.

Zestfest in Irving, Texas has been going strong for 17 years, with an estimated 15,000 people now showing up every year for the spicy foods, celebrity chefs and live music. January 25-27, 2019
The Pepper Festival & Hot Sauce Expo
Clear out in Auburn, California (about 30 minutes from Sacramento) you’d probably combine this hot stuff fun day with a family vacation as well. Held September 14 in 2019, there’ll be live bands all day at the Gold Country Fairgrounds, with lots of food and fun events as well. Part of the proceeds will go to children’s charities, so it’s supporting a good cause too. And – surprise – there’s going to be a Bounce House for the grown-ups! Arriba!
I’ll keep you posted when I spot some other fun places and events revolving around our favorite vegetable – chile!
Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone! Su amigo, Diego
