It's time to shatter the stereotype that Minnesota has bland food. On September 5, local hot sauce and salsa manufacturers, restaurants, and food trucks will team up to celebrate spice and show how the frozen Twin Cities likes to heat up.

The aptly named Heat Up Your Life will be held at Father Hennepin Bluffs Park, right off the Stone Arch Bridge, for a first-of-its-Minneapolis-kind event.

"One thing particular to the Twin Cities culinary culture, in regards to spicy foods, is we like a burn that doesn't crowd out flavor," says Rob Glacier, owner of hot sauce start-up Nuclear Nectar, and vendor at Heat Up Your Life. "Heat just for the sake of heat doesn't fly around here. There's got to be a balance."

The featured food trucks (rumored to include O'Cheeze and potentially Potters Pasties) will create original dishes that highlight a Minnesota twist on spicy cuisine. From 8 to 10 p.m., event goers will also have the chance to view a documentary, Heat Up Your Life, entirely about chilies and spicy food "from seed to salsa." The event itself is free -- though bring money for the food trucks -- and will run from 5 to 10 p.m.

Send your story tips to Hot Dish.

Wow! A big can of the dreaded Sweet Paprika. Watch out! Next year, they're putting red and yellow bell peppers in fajitas instead of just green!
