Show Off Some Bold Flavors With These Captain Marvel Pies

A 'Marvel Rising'-inspired recipe that doesn't sugarcoat anything!

In "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors," Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel, voiced by Kim Raver, is a bold leader who doesn't sugar-coat and is guided by a strong sense of duty and honor. She's the ultimate inspiration for our band of misfit heroes. 

Inspired by the full-length animated feature, not streaming on DisneyNOW, we've enlisted resident foodie supreme Jenn Fujikawa (@justjenn) to whip up a recipe you can easily eat while flying at high speeds and packs bold flavors reminiscent of Captain Marvel's intense energy blasts!
