Green Chile Sauce

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014


I am neither Irish nor Mexican, but that didn’t stop me from making some delicious St. Paddy’s Day green chile enchiladas using a homemade, to-die-for green chile sauce. It was about time I used the 6 green chiles that were still sitting in my fridge from the Bountiful Basket I got a week and a half ago. (more…)

Corn, Jicama, & Green Chile Salsa

After picking up this week’s Basket and before heading to the grocery store for supplements, I sat in my car creating my menu plan for the next two weeks. I wrote meatloaf and turnip mashed potatoes down on my list, thinking I could turn what I thought was a turnip into a nice mash. About 10 minutes later, I was in the produce section at the grocery store and thought I’d check to see what turnips look like to be sure that what I had was, in fact, a turnip. (more…)

Squash Quesadilla

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

The challenge was on.  What can you do with an acorn squash that is different and tasty?  At our house, we love quesadillas!   A quesadilla is a flour tortilla filled with a savory mixture containing cheese, vegetables, chicken, beef, or even, tofu.  It is a basic tortilla “grilled cheese sandwich” but with a spicy kick!  I cooked the acorn squash in the oven until tender and mashed it.  I added lots of jalapeno chiles and onions to the squash.  I made the quesadilla by layering the squash mixture in the tortilla with cheese and heating it.  It was a great new way to use acorn squash!

I was inspired to use the citrus to make a flavorful marinade for the fajitas on my meal plan for this week.  The resulting chicken is moist and flavorful and it comes together super easily. (more…)

Southwest Corn Relish

Jeanne G shared this recipe on the Bountiful Baskets Recipes Board:

Southwest Corn Relish

The Oregonian
Makes 6 to 7 pints

This condiment is a delightfully corny blend of tang and heat. The jalapeno chiles are tiny islands of spicy flavor that can be avoided by folks with more sensitive palates because they are relatively large in size. The relish is great to have on hand to top a platter of nachos or other Southwest-flavored dishes, or to scatter over green salads. It’s also wonderful stirred into rice, along with a bit of cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
