Make chili ice cream
Put condensed milk in a bowl, suitable for freezing. Measure double cream.
Whip cold double cream until stiff peaks for approx 3 minutes.
In a bowl combine condensed milk, salt, chili.
Then add beet juice and combine. Mix in red gel coloring.
Fold in whipped cream.
Add cayenne pepper to your taste. Gently combine. It should be spicy, but not overwhelming, because the flavor will develop more.
You can add more red gel color, if you want. Gently combine with the spatula until you are happy with the hue.
Let the chili ice cream set overnight in the freezer. Before scooping the ice cream, let it soften a little in the fridge.
