Tomatillo Habanero Salsa

by Stephen Chavez February 26, 2016

I know what some of you think when you saw the chile pepper featured in our Tomatillo Habanero Salsa. I get the same way when I see Habaneros. But, I am here to tell you, “Girl, don’t be scurred!”

Trust me. In this recipe, the Habanero gently lifts the green tomatillos to a good place. The heat slowly rises from the back of your tongue but quickly mellows. The salsa is perfect by itself as a dip with some good quality tortilla chips or simmered with chunks of pork or Costillas de Puerco (Pork Chops).

Tomatillo Habanero Salsa 2 Vertical

Makes 4 cups

1 pound green tomatillos
1 habanero pepper, stemmed
1 medium yellow onion, cut in half
4 garlic cloves, peeled
2 tablespoons olive oil to coat vegetables
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1/2 cup water
Juice of half a lime
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat over at 425 degrees.

  1. In a large roasting pan arrange the tomatillos, habanero, onion, and garlic. Drizzle with olive oil.
  2. Roast for 10 to 12 minutes, turning the vegetables half-way through.
  3. Place all the roasted ingredients in a blender. Add the cilantro, water, lime juice, and salt.
  4. Blend well.
  5. Allow the salsa to cool and then serve.

The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
