Add a Little Spice to Your Life

One of the things I miss the most about New Mexico is the food.  And so we have to cook it ourselves because most of what passes for Mexican food out here is… well, something else, but it’s not really Mexican food.  I’ll leave it there.

One of the best things about Mexican food is green chiles and several years ago a friend of mine sent me several packages of frozen Hatch green chiles.  These are famous and with good reason.  They aren’t the only good thing about Mexican food but they are one of the better ones.  If you can get your hands on some (and you can) you should try some of the real stuff.  I have a stash in my freezer.  At any rate, when I used up the ones she sent me I had to start ordering my own, so I found a source and discovered that it works perfectly.  They come frozen and ready to stick in your freezer and use whenever the chile bug hits you.

This recipe is simple although the corn takes a little preparation.  But it’s OH so worth it.  I will warn you, it’s SPICY.  Ok, what I mean is, it’s HOT.  I personally think spicy food is good for you.  It clears your sinuses or something.  Well, maybe not, but I still like it.

So, go indulge your inner chile monster and check out Roasted Corn & Green Chile Chicken.  Then be sure and check out Handmade Monday because believe it or not, it’s that time again!  Thanks for stopping by.

    I think maybe chillies are an acquired taste and they’re a bit too hot for me. But I’m sure they’re good for you!

  3. Jill says:

    Yum, yum – it looks and sounds great – I love spicy food. Hope you have a good week.

  4. We sneak chillies into anything and everything. I shall hang on to this receipe.

    Yum! I love chilli but we’re had to tone down the spiciness in our food since our toddler started taking food off our plates. I’ll have to keep this recipe to try when he’s a bit bigger.

    I like a bit of heat and think I’m addicted to ginger! I’m not a chilli fan, but my husband loves them, so we tend to take my dinner out of the pot and then add the chillies to his! I’m sure these hot flavours are good for you – I swear by ginger and chew a piece if I’ve got a stuffed up nose. Garlic too – great for killing off bugs! I love the look of that roasted corn – yum!

  8. That recipe looks and sounds great. I would have to take the chilli out though. Anything with a bit of spice in it is too spicy for me 😀

    Susie you make such wonderful sounding things, I’m not a fan of spicy food (it’s not a fan of me either), but it sounds lovely, I’ll betcha is smells lovely too.
    Thanks for popping over to see me, you should have a go at the Art Hanger, you can use regular wooden pegs (like mine) either hung or glued on) or use crocodile clips or bulldog clips depending on the type you want. I usually have all of these different types at craft fairs for more choice. So go on, give it a go :o)
