If you are worried that 4 chilies will make the dish too spicy, just add one the first time you make it and see how it goes. It is breaking these chilies that really adds the heat. If you use 1 chili, break it into large pieces discarding the seeds and as much of the white pith as possible. You can always add more heat next time you make the dish – it’s hard to take the spiciness out if you overdo it.
All our recipes are created by chefs and reviewed by our oncology-trained staff Registered Dietitian, Kate Ueland, MS, RD, to ensure that each is backed with scientific evidence and meets the standards set by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
