All opinions are mine alone. #VivaLaMorena #RediscoverLaMorena #CollectiveBias We’re giving a chipotle twist on our favorite Texas Nachos recipe, and it is crazy delicious. Let’s make some tonight! Have you thought about exploration lately? Patty and I enjoy traveling a great deal. We’ve toured the coastline of Australia, cruised around the Mediterranean, crossed the borders into Canada and Mexico, zip lined over towering treetops in Costa Rica, and driven endless miles through our own United States. There are so many places to discover. Exploration, though, doesn’t need to take you so far away. How often have you explored your own local area? Has it been a while? Maybe it’s time to rediscover a few places. I have so many options nearby. One of my favorites, which I recently “rediscovered”, is a town super close to me – Woodstock,…

A recipe for rump roast rubbed with a rich, spicy chili blend, then slow cooked and served with homemade chipotle gravy. We're talking comfort food at its finest. Seriously. Chipotle Gravy! Don't forget the Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Make this. Serve it up. Drop the mic. Boom! Done! Yes, this completes the recipe that started with our previous recipe post - Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes. When you put it all together, it is food that will seep into your soul. You will settle into a bit of foodie heaven, and it will certainly satisfy your meat tooth. Rump roast is a tough cut of meat, but when it is slow cooked, it literally falls off the bone. You can shred it with a fork and it is super tender and juicy. My mother used to make roast all the time and it was by far my favorite dish she made. This…

Homemade Picante Sauce

Make your own picante-style sauce at home with this recipe, with fresh tomatoes, spicy jalapenos, tangy apple cider vinegar and more. I use this sauce on practically everything. Can be served as a sauce or a salsa. Dude! I'm excited. Why? Because we have a nice new big batch of PICANTE SAUCE in the fridge. Oh yeah! This is one of my very favorite sauces to keep around. Or is it a salsa? I will let you decide! The consistency is somewhere in between and it can be served easily as either a sauce in a bottle that you can douse over anything, or in a bowl with chips that you can serve salsa style. Doesn't it look gorgeous? So many sauces do. This one has a tongue-grabbing mix of smokiness from the chipotle peppers and tanginess from the apple cider vinegar, not to mention HEAT and FLAVOR from that…

A recipe for large chili peppers sliced in half, stuffed with a slow cooked shredded chicken with chipotles in adobo sauce, then topped with cheese and baked to perfection. It's time for dinner! Our Doux D'Espagne peppers have finally ripened and WOW, are they good. These chili peppers are freakin' HUGE and that makes them perfect for stuffing to serve as an entire meal for two with a single pepper. You know a pepper is going to be huge when it goes by another name - The Spanish Mammoth Pepper. Compared to bell peppers, they're quite a bit sweeter in flavor and larger on average, though you won't find them easily in supermarkets, or in America, for that matter. You're more likely to find them in Paris or other warmer climes outside of the U.S. They're best grown in your own garden, which I would urge you to do, but if…

This homemade barbecue sauce brings a wonderful smoky spice with the chipotle peppers and bacon, but it's also slightly sweet from the sugar and molasses. It is rich and thick and will stick to your ribs or chicken nicely. Get the grills ready! Here is the recipe. I'm cranking out barbecue sauces this summer like they're going out of style. Even when I make big batches, they disappear so fast. That's OK. I don't want to make my batches too large because I enjoy the variety. When I run out of one batch, I'll switch it up and go in a different direction. The last sauce we made was a Peach-Bourbon Barbecue Sauce, and it was delish! I didn't switch it up TOO much this time around, keeping the wonderful bourbon flavor, but now we're bringing in smoky chipotle peppers, and everyone's favorite - DUN DUN DUN - BACON! Oh yes,…

A fish tacos recipe made with white fish that has been lightly fried in seasoned beer batter, served with a crunchy habanero slaw and creamy chipotle sauce. Bring on the tacos, friends! There is ALWAYS room for tacos. What is it about fish tacos that make them so awesome? Perhaps because...THEY ARE TACOS? Quite possibly. Tacos are certainly one of life's perfections, but the fish taco is something unto itself. It is so much about the fixings. So many choices! And the fish, right? What sort of fish do you choose? How do you season it? What type of hot sauce do you pour forth? Oh my, and do we serve it grilled or blackened or fried? Help! No worries. This isn't any sort of taco crisis. I am NOT freaking out over here. I LOVE that we have so many options for fish tacos that I might just have…

A recipe for beef cooked low and slow, finished in a chipotle gravy sauce and served up with tortillas and your favorite toppings. This recipe is an example of how you can take an almost identical recipe and turn it into something completely different. If you compare this recipe to our last one - Chili Rubbed Rump Roast with Chipotle Gravy - you'll find all the same ingredients, but an entirely new recipe. The first one, we served it over Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes, but here, we're serving it up taco style, because, well, TACOS! Do we ever need a reason to eat tacos? I think not, so therefore, I am. You can do so much with a 3 pound beef rump roast. Once you get your seasonings down, you do a simple rub down, sear it up in a cast iron pan, then slow cook - and I mean SLOW…

Chipotle peppers bring an outstanding smoky flavor to whatever dish you include them in, but for chili, they're a Godsend. Chili is one of those dishes you can make easy or you can make complex. We opted for the easy method. We only included 2 chipotle peppers in this recipe, but feel free to add more for enhanced smokiness. Ingredients 2 tablespoons ground guajillo chili powder 1 tablespoon ground chili para naranja 1 can cannelloni beans (white) 2 chicken breasts, chopped 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1 quart tomatoes, peeled 1 habanero pepper, chopped 1 teaspoon cumin 1 cup water 2 chipotle peppers, stemmed and chopped Splash of olive oil Cooking Directions Heat a frying pan to medium-high heat. Add a splash of olive oil. Season chicken breast chunks with garlic powder and sear about 1 minute per side. This will help seal in the flavor and…

We love mashup recipes. It is fun and creative to blend ingredients from multiple cultures into a singular dish. The results may often surprise you. Ask yourself - how might the Japanese prepare this particular Mexican dish? Or how might the Cajuns prepare this Chinese recipe? Here, we asked - how might the Mexicans or Southwestern U.S. prepare a chicken parmesan? Here is one tasty result. How would you prepare it? Mexican Style Chicken Parmesan Recipe Ingredients 4 6-ounce chicken breasts 1 onion, chopped 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped 2 chipotles in adobe sauce, chopped 1 tablespoon masa 2 cups chicken stock 16 ounces tomato sauce 1 teaspoon tomato paste 2 tablespoons Mexican oregano 3 ounces cooked chorizo 2 tablespoons chili powder Salt and pepper to taste Cooked pasta to serve Parmesan cheese to serve Cooking Directions Heat a large deep pan to medium heat with a…

A recipe for mild poblano peppers, roasted and peeled, then stuffed with seasoned pulled pork, black beans and chipotle peppers in adobo, topped with cheese and avocado. Bring on the stuffed peppers! Time for more stuffed chili peppers, my friends! Did you know I have an obsession with stuffed peppers? Um: Stuffed Chili Pepper Recipes. Yeah. I blame the poblanos this time. There we were, scooting through the store for ingredients for a new cookbook I am working on, minding my own business, when the pobano peppers distracted me with their calls. "Mike! Dude! Come over here. Grab a few of us and make something AWESOME. Please! We beg of you." See what I'm saying? I am absolved of all responsibility or blame in this situation. The poblano peppers wanted it this way. Glad they did because this was a hugely satisfying meal for the both of us. And pretty…
