Pepper Teigen is not only the mom of the one and only Chrissy Teigen, but also a culinary enthusiast and author. She's joining TODAY to share a few of her favorite spicy recipes from her new cookbook, "The Pepper Thai Cookbook: Family Recipes from Everyone's Favorite Thai Mom." She shows us how to make hot and sweet chile jam and adds it to stir-fried spaghetti with sun-dried tomatoes.

This versatile condiment is a staple of Thai cuisine. It has the perfect balance of sweetness and a spicy kick. Plus, the tangy tamarind and umami-rich anchovies give it a depth of flavor that makes it absolutely irresistible.

This recipe is great because it's easy, quick and family-friendly. Kids love pasta so much, so I wanted to try and give it a different kind of flavor for them instead of regular spaghetti. Just make sure to taste the chili jam before adding it in (if you don't make it yourself), as some are sweeter than others. You can turn down the heat for the kids and turn it up for the adults — it's good for everyone!
