The Hot & Spicy expansion adds components for a 5th player, special player boards that give each player a special ability (and a place to store their chips, etc.), as well as some new spicy recipes that require chili! Make your dishes extra tasty, or try to cook one of the new recipes that require a sprinkling of spice!
The new Hot & Spicy recipe cards may be used instead of, or, shuffled in with, the recipe cards from the base game. Now chili is a required ingredient on the recipe cards! These recipes are earned the same way as regular recipes, but players now must spend 4 ingredient cards to learn them (3 ingredients, plus chili).
