This hearty beef chili follows the same method as most other soups and stews and can be done in the oven in 4 hours or in a slow cooker over 4-8 hours. It is an updated version with a little less heat (the previous version had a whole can of chilis in Adobo!) and a […]
Tiger Prawns, Sambal, Lime, Cilantro, Garlic Butter Sauce I call this “Midnight” Shrimp Scampi because it comes together in 10 minutes, is light enough for a late night snack, and filling enough to call dinner. Garlic, butter, Indonesian hot sauce and lime create the perfect balance.
It’s one of my favorite times of year! Hatch Chile season is upon us and that means its time to celebrate one of the most wonderful peppers in existence – the New Mexico Hatch Chile. It’s a short season August and September only, so take advantage while you can!
