This chili con carne builds smoky heat from the roasted and reconstituted guajillo, ancho and arbol chilies -- the base of the deep reddish/ brown sauce (also known as “bowl of red” because of the signature color). The goal of Texas chili is to develop a rich and hearty stew starting with beef and chilies and coax complex flavors out of those few simple ingredients.
I like to keep my fridge stocked with gochujang so this recipe requires little to no shopping or foresight. Plus most of these ingredients are under $1.00 so it makes for a cheap meal that can feed multiple people.
Buckwheat crêpes are naturally gluten free and have a subtle, nutty flavor. Crêpes made with buckwheat flour are actually referred to as a Breton galette. It’s a specialty of the Brittany and Normandy regions of France.
I recently had a friend reach out for a super simple and comprehensive recipe that she could make for a dinner party. Simple to cook, but one that would still impress her guests. This is one of those recipes that can be made in a pinch with few ingredients and pairs well with just about any side.
This variation of Caesar salad comes together right in the bowl. Rather than dumping a creamy and heavy (albeit delicious) dressing on the romaine, in this recipe the garlic is mashed together with the anchovies and olive oil, then tossed with the romaine, lemon juice, egg yolk and Parmesan cheese.
I still try to avoid fast food but every so often we make a late night Uber stop at the Taco Bell drive through near our house, get couple of crunch wrap supremes and eat them in bed. I wanted to write a recipe that gives the same effect with a lot less guilt.
