Green Chile Makes a Meal

Green Chile Makes a Meal Here in Colorado you can rarely order a burrito or chile relleno or enchilada without it being smothered in green chile, and that’s a good thing. Once you’ve drenched your cheesy Mexican food in green chile there’s no turning back. As much as I enjoy green chile, I’ve never bothered to master a recipe, and I’m not sure why. I think this spring is the spring. My mission:...

Creamy Guac Deserves Pork Rind Dippers

Creamy Guac Deserves Pork Rind Dippers It’s the last day of Dipstock, and I can’t think of a better way to end the party than with a guacamole, one of THE quintessential dips. This recipe was submitted by Sweet Life, a wonderful food blogger who has a serious knack for Texan-inspired recipes and food photography (the pic on the left is hers). What I love most about the recipe is her suggestion to serve guacamole with pork rinds,...

A St. Paddy’s Day Feast: Corned Beef Dip and Soup

A St. Paddy’s Day Feast: Corned Beef Dip and Soup I’m not particularly crazy about St. Patrick’s Day. I mean, the party is nice, but the food…well, the food is nothing special.

Google tells me that there are 3,830,000 hummus results, which is not quite as many results as bean dip gets (4.4 million), but it’s still impressive. I mean, potato chip dip only produces 315,000 results! My point here is that hummus is a fascination. It’s a...

The History of Sauce

The History of Sauce Once a method for covering up rotten foods and now a way to elevate the deliciousness of a meal, sauces have long served a culinary purpose. No matter where you are in the world, your cuisine most likely calls for a sauce in certain recipes. Is it too much to say that a sauce can define a culture? I don’t think so. Sauce, like so many other foods, is representative of the food our land can grow, the...

A Saucey Affair, A Sauce Success

A Saucey Affair, A Sauce Success You may remember my post from couple weeks back “10 Ways Sauce Can Save a Life.” Well, that post was in anticipation of the 9Health Fair Fundraiser, which I attended last Thursday night here in Denver. The event featured 16 local restaurants and one of their small plate creations that included a sauce, hence the name of the event — A Saucey Affair. Seeing how this is a great cause and...
