New Mexico Chile Cookbook
Still Hot After
All These Years!
"A Tale of Two Chiles" Cookbook and Video featuring New Mexico Red and Green Chile!
My how the time does fly! Our popular little cookbook celebrated its 10th birthday in 2010, and in honor of the
occasion Judy added a dozen new recipes. All the old favorites are still there,
classic traditional dishes starring New Mexico Green and Red Chile, with
not a "cream-of-anything" soup in sight! You'll find
interesting new ideas for using chile in the "Nuevo" section,
and the "Side Dishes" category contains much more than the
usual refried beans and Spanish rice, including salsas, salads, and drinks, to
name a few. In addition, there are lots of tips relating to cooking with
chiles, and handy Entire Meal Menu suggestions.
The instructions for handling fresh green chiles and dried red
chiles, along with the step-by-step how-to instructions in the companion
video, are especially useful for cooks not experienced in using
chile peppers. In fact, we like to refer to our book and video as
"New Mexico Chile 101"! We believe "A Tale of Two
Chiles" will have you cooking like a Southwesterner in no time.
The Cookbook - Spiral-bound to lie flat on your counter while cooking, the book contains more than 60 recipes. It includes classic dishes using
red or green chiles, a selection of favorite side dishes, and a "Nuevo" section
featuring newer uses of chile.
The Companion Video
Professionally produced, about a half-hour long, the video shows
step-by- step instructions for roasting green chiles at home, and for
using dried red chile pods. We show the preparation of several favorite
classic recipes from the cookbook, then take you along on a quick visit to the Hatch Chile Festival
There's also a look back at "The Whole Enchilada" fiesta, which was a
favorite for chile lovers for over 30 years, and featured the Guiness
Record-winning "World's Largest Enchilada".
