Who knew mini bell peppers, cucumbers, cream cheese, hot sauce, and Tajin could be so yummy?

I Made TikTok's Favorite New Healthy Snack And It's A Must-Try For EVERY Hot Sauce Lover

Recently I've seen several videos on my For You Page that describes how to make a popular new recipe: mini cucumbers and bell peppers topped with cream cheese, Valentina hot sauce, and Tajin seasoning.

The taste test proved that TikTok has done it again: the recipe was a huge success! The Tajin seasoning was definitely dominant on the cucumbers, but the peppers took the majority of the flavor during those bites. I would highly recommend this healthy and refreshing snack.

Secure and clean the groceries.

First, I went to Walmart, which was the only place I could find the special Tajin seasoning. After securing the groceries, I headed home and started to wash my produce.

Once the cucumbers and bell peppers were nice and clean, I sliced them in half to leave space to fill the cream cheese.

I took a spoon and scooped a generous amount of Philadelphia cream cheese into the bell peppers and on top of the cucumbers.

Be sure to pat the cucumbers dry to ensure that the cream cheese doesn't slide off of the tops.

Add the toppings.

Once the cream cheese was placed, I opened up the Valentina hot sauce (only 88 cents at Walmart). I'm sure that any hot sauce would taste fine, but I wanted to follow the TikTok recipe to a T to really get the full experience.

I blotted some hot sauce on each pepper and cucumber, ensuring that each bite would be flavorful and spicy.

Sprinkle on tajin.

The final step, and arguably the most important, was to sprinkle Tajin seasoning all over the delicious peppers and cucumbers. This part really depends on your taste, but I would recommend as much Tajin as possible.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
