One of my favourite spicy things ever is chilequiles.
Take corn tortillas and tear them up into squares (smaller than a tortilla chip, but not tiny.) Heat some oil in a pan and add the torn up tortillas. When they start to get a little bit tan and toasty, pour in a generous amount of La Costena Salsa Verde. Let it cook for a few minutes and then top with shredded cheese. Once the cheese is melted it's done. It's fabulous alongside scrambled eggs. My mouth is watering so bad now! Wish I was having that for dinner instead of tomato soup!

Some freaky stuff, but I swear it does it for me!! Canned tuna mixed w/ salsa (as a dip or just eaten w/ a spoon), jalapeno salad (just make the salad and replace lettuce w/ pickled jalapenos), and I luuuv some pico de gallo- I think I could eat it with a spoon!
Also sometimes if I'm making a basic pasta w/ red sauce I'll add in cayenne to make it hotter. I also buy Sabra's Supremely Spicy Hummus to dip carrots or whatever in as my afternoon snack. I love love love spicy food. Spicier the better.
Ooh I did those cauliflower things they were good! I did the same thing (minus the batter) last night with sliced chicken breast on skewers. The recipe just had you mic 1/3 c hot sauce with 1 T cornstarch, brush it on the chicken, and broil 4-5 minutes per side. They came out tender and delicious.
Also, spicy chilis are good. There is a sweet potato chili recipe on spark recipes that you can kick up with extra spices!
chicken taco salad. made with lettuce, tomatoes, chicken a few brown rice taco chips and some salsa.

What are your favourite meals and snacks when you are craving spicy food?
I made these Cauliflower Buffalo "Wings" today (http://tastykitchen.com/blog/2012/12/caul iflower-buffalo-wings/) and they were super delicious, but I am looking for more ideas because I get spicy food cravings all the time.
