Sausage Stuffed Jalapeños

Stuffed jalapeños this way are incredibly, stupidly easy and delicious. No cooking the meat first, no cooking anything first, just mix up some pork with some salsa and other stuff, cram it in a hollowed out jalapeño and bake.

Egg Roll Recipe

From what I gathered on the internet, the egg rolls you find at Chinese restaurants are evolved from the more delicate spring rolls actually found in China.

Chimichanga!

Chimichanga! It’s so fun to say! I had a request for a chimichanga video from my buddy Larry. That same week, I had TWO requests for “unhealthy vegetarian food” — a descriptive that makes me smile. A chimichanga is pretty unhealthy, on account of the frying, and the cheese, and also the frying. So I…
