Shrimp Enchiladas with Hatch Chile Sauce

I got some free roasted Hatch chiles in the mail from the Hatch Chile Store in New Mexico. I’d never even seen red Hatch chiles before but they immediately made me think of enchilada sauce. After blending the sauce, I tasted it and it reminded me — a little too much — of roasted red […]

Easter Menu 2016

As you may have guessed, I’m not a religious person. I don’t go to church, I don’t read the bible, I don’t believe in an afterlife (though I like the idea of reincarnation) and frankly I don’t believe in God (even though it still makes me a little uncomfortable to admit that in public). Growing up, […]

Jalapeño Butter – Compound Butter Recipe

A blob of flavored butter has probably saved more overcooked chicken dinners than all the pizza deliveries in America.
