The magic of hot and spicy cauliflower that the longer you leave them the more the flavor comes out. If you dont like them too spicy, dont put in as many peppers, or if you really like that hot peppery flavor, add more.
If you are wondering what peppers to use, think about cayenne pepper, hungarian wax pepper, jalapeños, cherry bells, habaneros and you can also add in some carrots in thick slices for some lovely color and a bit of variety.
