This Valentine’s Day we are turning up the heat with some sweet chocolate strawberries, covered in chipotle chili flakes. Now I’m sure you’re questioning by now, who would eat spicy strawberries? People who love spicy foods that’s who.

When I asked one the owners of Houston’s Edible location where the idea came from, they said it was from using Tajin. If you never heard of Tajin, it’s a chili-lime seasoning people use on their fruits to add some extra flavor.

Sweet until it kicks

Just like every “Extreme Food” I devour, I was curious as to what these strawberries were going to taste like. Growing up in South Texas, I remember always adding Tajin, to all of my fruits. If this was anything similar to my childhood, then these strawberries were going to be delightful.

But, I was wrong.

The strawberries were delicious and the chocolate was to die for, however, the chipotle chili flakes definitely gave this sweet treat a kick. At first, the sweetness overpowered the fruit, but seconds later as the flakes remained in my mouth, it was hard for me to talk due to the spices.

Watch as I try the ‘Burning Love’ strawberry:
