Rapper Cardi B and her husband, Offset, spiced things up recently— literally. In a viral TikTok challenge, #spicybowlchallenge, Cardi B creates a bowl filled with spicy ingredients, including pickled spicy sausages, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, and more.
With their daughter Kulture standing by with water, she then challenged Offset to try the concoction. See for yourself:
Offset was surprisingly cool as a cucumber after tasting the fiery stew, inspiring others to try it for themselves. In fact, many TikTok users are claiming this is a regular staple snack in their household — although some people enjoy the taste more than others.
If you’re willing to put your tastebuds (and stomach) to the test, here’s how to make your own spicy bowl.
1. Start with spicy sausages
Cardi B uses Big Mama sausages that she said she found at 7Eleven, but you can use whatever sausages you want. Look for chorizo-style sausages that don’t need to be cooked first. Slice or chop your sausages and add them to the bowl.
2. Add lots of hot sauce
Then, add hot sauce to your bowl — and don’t be shy! Frank’s Red Hot, Cholula, Texas Pete hot sauce, or Tabasco would be good. Use whatever hot sauce is your favorite.
3. Add spices
Crushed red pepper, smoked paprika (“For color!” says Cardi B), blackened seasoning, and Old Bay seasoning. Don’t worry about getting your measurements right: Cardi B dumps seasoning directly into the bowl, generously pouring out all her spices.
4. Add pickles, jalapenos, banana peppers, and pepperoncini
Not only should you add chopped pickles, pickled jalapenos, banana peppers, and pickled peperoncini, but you should also pour in their juice straight from the jars. It should start to resemble a stew at this point.
5. Top with a hard-boiled egg
Add a hard-boiled egg to the mix.
Then, stir everything together to make sure all the flavors are blended. And there you go! You have a spicy bowl ready to test for yourself.
Some TikTokers dive in headfirst with a spoon or fork, while others are using potato chips as a vehicle for the spicy bowl. Don’t forget to post a video of your reaction and tag it with #spicybowlchallenge. Good luck!
