Raw Hummus

As mentioned, I’ve been sprouting seeds lately. In my travels around the world while sitting in darkened office poking at a keypad and staring at the compooter, I came across the idea of sprouting beans. Maybe it makes them more digestible, they say. If you adhere to a raw diet, it’s definitely the only way […]

Jalapeño Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are one of my favorite party snacks to make. People make fun of them a little bit — they have a reputation for being old-fashioned  or giving you farts and egg-breath — and perhaps there’s a nugget of truth there, but good lord, deviled eggs are delicioso!

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 […]

Gorditas

Gorditas roughly translates into “little fatties”, which is a reference to their appearance — fat, stuffed corn tortillas — and possibly your appearance as well if you eat too many. A play on my “Healthy vs Hell-with-it” theme, these are basically Tuesday’s very healthy, low-fat and wholesome corn tortilla recipe turned into fried corn dough […]

Flautas

I surely can’t be the only one to whom chicken flautas are a serious, dedicated food love. Corn tortillas rolled tightly around filling of your choice (chicken here, but beef or potato fillings are common) then fried until crispy golden delicious is achieved?? I mean, COMEON. This video was the second collaboration we did at […]

Queso!

Queso Dip Video (scroll down for queso recipe) If you’re not from Texas, you probably have no idea what the hell queso is. I know, I know, you think you know that it means “cheese” in Spanish and you are correct in that. But to a Texan, queso means something completely different. Sometimes called chili […]

Top Superbowl Food!

The only part of the Superbowl that I care about is the food and the snacks and the drinking and the yelling at the TV. Since every red-blooded American is adept at drinking and yelling at the TV, but maybe not so much at making the food and the snacks, this post will focus on […]
