I have a tough crowd coming in this weekend.  They LOVE LOVE LOVE hot & spicy food - the hotter the better...and I'm not much of a spicy food kinda girl, so my recipe box isn't all that accommodating. I've got the main dish covered, but need appetizer ideas.

Any ideas?HuhHuhHuh

Here's an easy one - I don't know the real name, but we usually call them antijitos:

1 pkg cream cheese
1 pkg of large tortillas
1 cup of grated cheddar
1 jalapeno, chopped in small peices

Mix softened cream cheese, grated cheddar, and jalapeno in a bowl
Spread mixture onto tortillas in a thin layer
Roll tortillas with cheese mix inside
Cut into 1 inch slices (so you have lots of mini rolls)
place on a baking sheet roll side up and bake until warm and a little toasty on top

serve them on a plate/platter with salsas, sour cream, guacamole etc for dipping.

Yes, there are a lot of Mexican foods that are great for appetizers and they can be as hot as you want..
Like a layered bean dip-use any/all of these-refried beans, meat, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, jalapenos/habaneros slices, hot sauce, taco seasoning

out of town until July 10th...I will respond to any messages then.

You could always head down to a store/carneceria/bodega in your town and pick up some pico de gallo or salsa.

  A few suggestions:

Spicy wings - buy some wings and make your own marinade.  sometimes it is great to mix sweet and spicy.  there are tons of recipes online.  i usually make it up as i go along.

mini quesadillas - can be served with hot sauce on the side

mini meatballs - bake them then add them to some spicy bb-q sauce.  wicked easy. a hit at my last get together.

deviled eggs - add redhot, tabasco sauce, or spicy mustard to filling

  You can aslo buy those jalapenos that are fried and filled with cheese.  Those you can find in th frozen food section.
