Big S Farms/Calzones

Two more days until the weekend! Was your Wednesday good to you? Mine was VERY nice. I took Body Pump this morning, worked, then did a little shopping (although I didn't end up buying anything, it was fun to look!). When I got home, I found a lovely package filled with the salsas:



and sauces...

I won from a contest on Lucky Taste Buds! These products are from a wonderful company called Big S Farms. I was super excited to try these products, so tonight I used the Tennessee Lightning Habanero Hot Sauce:


in one of the two calzones I made for Josh. Big S describes this hot sauce as: "For the purist. A special blend of our red habanero varieties including scotch bonnets. Apple cider vinegar and a touch of salt make this sauce one of our favorites. It's getting hotter."

Tennessee Lightning Calzone:
*
Ingredients:
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 tsp Tennessee Lightning Habanero Hot Sauce (or more if you're daring ;))
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1 cooked chicken breast, shredded (or chicken lunch meat shredded- which is what I used!)
Pizza dough
Olive Oil
*
Directions:
Preheat oven to 450. Mix together first four ingredients. Roll out pizza dough and stuff with filling. Pinch shut and brush with a little olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
The second calzone was stuffed with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, baby spinach, artichokes, and prosciutto.
*
For me, I made up a huge salad with spinach, green pepper, onion, jicama, tomatoes, broccoli slaw, broccoli, black beans, corn, and topped it all with Big S Farms Fire on the Mountainside medium salsa. Big S describes this salsa as, "Rich red tomatoes, onions, cilantro and our special blend of habanero varieties combine to give the world of salsa a kick in the hot seat."

Both Josh and I loved the Big S farms products! The hot sauce is VERY spicy but delicious! The salsa is amazing- your can taste the freshness of the tomatoes! Thank you Vance (Big S Farms) and Michelle!

Yay for goodies! And holy calzone - I need to make those more often! I've only had them when eating out - it would be so much fun to healthify them and then, of course, consume them :o)

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog, girly!
