Adding More Spice: You can easily add spicy to a stir fry by adding some chili peppers. Depending on how much spice you want, choose either a milder pepper like jalapeno, or a spicier pepper like red chili pepper or Thai chili pepper. Amount of peppers will also affect the spice level as well as leaving the seeds in or discarding them. Remember that chili peppers store most of their spice in the seeds. If you don’t want to add the peppers, you can also spice the dish up with a dash of cayenne pepper.
Gluten Free Note: If you need to make this stir fry gluten free, simple swap low sodium soy sauce for gluten free soy sauce, tamari, or coconut aminos. Remaining ingredients should already be gluten free but double check the labels to make sure.
