Complete Listing of National Food Days

Has it ever happened to you? It did with me a few weeks ago. It was National Taco Day (October 4th) and I didn’t find out until late that night before going to bed. If I’d-a-known about that fact in the morning, I would have prepared a righteous taco feast for my two boys and me.

Basic Chili Powder Recipe

The secret to any great chili starts with an awesome basic chili powder recipe. A chili powder spice blend can be theoretically used to flavor up many different things (try mixing it in with some cuts of steak or chicken the next time you make burritos or fajitas!), but of course, its main usage will always be a good bowl of chili con carne. Pitmaster Jack Waiboer of GrateTV recently asked me for an all-around good recipe for chili powder,…

So here is my nacho cheese sauce recipe. The consistency of this nacho queso will be a tiny bit more “stringy” and “stretchy” like melted…

Ultimate Guide to Drying Hot Chile Peppers

Why Dry Hot Peppers? The main reason to learn how to dry hot peppers is simply to enable you to keep them for a long time. Peppers can last for several days to a few weeks at room temperature or in the refrigerator before they start to rot. Freezing peppers, if done right, can make them last several months, but the thawing process can be a tricky one where often you’re left with overly soft and mushy chiles. Dried chiles…
