Round 2 is being sponsored by our 2011 Feast Your Eyes on This Spicy Cooking Champion, Clement Bourg of Cajun Heat. He will be a guest judge and give a $50 gift card to the winner of this round. Winner of 2012 Golden Chile Award for Best New Product at Zestfest, Best BBQ Sauce of 2012 from ScottRobertsWeb.com and winner of ILIS’ Lenny Award for Best Product of the Year for 2012, Cajun Heat’s C’est Bon Cajun-Q is a product you need to experience. It is special when the bloggers and the industry both agree on what the best products are, and we got it right this time. Check out this BBQ sauce and more award winning Cajun-style products by clicking on the Cajun Heat picture above. I would also like to give a big thank you for the surprise video studio in a box that Clement bestowed upon me Saturday afternoon. I imagine once I open it up, my video production value will immensely improve. Too bad I can’t get a more charismatic persona to take my place. 😀 Thank you much Clement for being more than a friend to yours truly.

Round 2 Challenge:

Refining Fire Chiles sent all the contestants a couple of dried Jay’s Peach Ghost Scorpion Chile Peppers. They had to use these super hot chile peppers in a pasta dish of some kind and add something green for St Patrick’s Day. They did not have to make the dish green, they just had to use something whether it was an herb, vegetable or some moldy cheese. They all had 6 minutes in which to make their video, accept for Sam who by winning round 1 gets to have an additional 2 minutes added to his video if he so chooses. Thanks to Jim Duffy for sending the chiles to our contestants. I hope they can handle the heat.

Happy St. Patty’s Day to all our Irish friends & a very happy birthday to our contestant Tina Tillman!

    We are missing 1 video from Tracy. Tracy was the only contestant that did not get his Jay’s Ghost Scorpion peppers in time and as a result they had to be reshipped and that delivery didn’t arrive until late Friday. That threw the cooking all out of whack, and his filming did not start until midnight. I extended his deadline as a result, so his video will be up late. Hopefully not too much longer.

    Bo’s and Tina’s videos were submitted late too and the judges will act accordingly with the rules and points will be deducted.

    Tracy had to be eliminated due to video issues. It is unfortunate that he has to be taken out this way. Thank you Tracy for at least trying.

    Sam’s dish looks absolutely delicious! Food Network should be calling any time now!

    All of these recipes looked spectacular, but I’m totally diggin’ Mike’s Pho recipe. Absolutely outta the box thinking. Nice job, Mike.

    If the contestants don’t mind I would like to post their vids on my website to promote them and the contest.

    Jim, embed it from where its at so we can still track the views on youtube. Not a problem otherwise.

  • March 18, 2013 at 11:24 pm

    Jim, that is fine with me. I love the peach ghost scorpion peppers btw!

  • March 19, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    Having leftovers of my entry for lunch, that ghost chili just gets hotter day after day…nose running, lips burning, good stuff!!

  • March 19, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    they all really look good, but Bo’s really stands out. thanks for sharing

  • March 19, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    yes Jim post away. I have been eating my spicy pasta all week.. it’s is so great. I’m hoping to use more of that chili in a later week.

    We had leftover Pasta Florentine last night for dinner. Fantastic! The homemade sundried tomato scorpion ketchup went great with the scorpion tempura battered veggies too! I still have a little of the scorpion powder leftover. Looking forward to using that in something soon! Thanks Jim.

    Enjoyed a great breakfast sandwich this morning with a fried egg, chorizo sausage, American cheese and the scorpion basil pesto I made for this challenge. Gotta tell you, it was AWESOME! Thanks Jim Duffy for the pepper.
