This unusual, very inexpensive, quick, and easy dip or sauce uses whole wheat toast crumbs and walnuts for body. The flavor comes from our favorite--garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. It can be used as a sauce for fish or spooned over slices of fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. Serve it in a small bowl surrounded by red pepper and zucchini strips. Top it with chopped toasted walnuts or parsley. Imagine you are in Greece!
This hot sauce is a good remedy for a stuffy nose. It may not seem real hot at first, but it will sneak up on you. If you don't enjoy heat, this isn't for you. There are hotter sauces out there I'm sure, but this isn't for sissies. I eat it on many things, from meat to vegetables.
I can't seem to make enough of this sauce--and I triple the recipe every time. My family uses it on eggs, hash browns, taco's and burritos (of course). So, if you like this type of thing, this is the sauce for you!
We used to make this in much larger batches for a restaurant. Yes it has many ingredients, but once you make it and bottle it up, you will have it and your neighbors won't! Great on everything from ribs and chops, to burgers and seafood.
This green sauce is popular in many Mexican restaurants around Houston. Ninfa's was one of the first to serve this sauce. The recipe has been printed in the Houston Chronicle several times. I've adapted it slightly. Mama Ninfa Rodriquez Laurenzo opened the original Ninfa's Restaurant on Navigation street in 1973. Her food differed from the usual Tex-Mex restaurants in town. She seemed to achieve fame in the kitchen overnight. Some of her famous guests included George Bush, Michael Douglas, John Travolta, Rock Hudson, and Aerosmith! Mama Ninfa lost her battle with cancer last year, but her much loved Mexican food lives on. The original Ninfa's is still there, and there are several other locations here in Houston as well.
This is my version of mole sauce. It can hold its own against the mole at our great local Mexican restaurant. I usually double this recipe, but that's just me. The original recipe calls for 5 TBSP(yes, 5)of chili powder. I cut it in half, but you can take it from there. And don't judge the taste until you add the chocolate. It's just not done until you finish this step! Serve it over good chicken, over enchiladas,or burritos. I think it is good with lots of things. I served it the other night over leftovers from canarygirl's Chicken Verde, and it was superb!(Her recipe stands on its own as a great dish, I just enhanced my leftovers! Thanks, canarygirl!)
Adopted recipe. Please note that this is not a sweet BBQ sauce at all. If you are looking for a "Memphis" or "Kansas City" style sauce, with tomatoes and molasses or brown sugar, please look elsewhere or you will be disappointed.
Eastern North Carolina is where you would find the original inspiration for this. Traditionally, a whole hog is cooked and this style of sauce is used both for the mop and on the side. I really like this stuff, it's a nice change from sweet sauces and makes a dynamite mop, as well.
Keeps in a covered container in the fridge almost indefinitely.
Delicious marinade given to me years ago by a Korean woman. Excellent for any kind of meat- beef, roast, chicken, pork, ribs, and shrimp. Prep time does not include slicing meat, and cook time depends on what you are cooking and by what method, and does not include marinading time. )The longer the marinading time, the better!). Enjoy!
I got this recipe off Copykats. It's really yummy and perfect for dips for chicken nuggets, french fries, or veggies. It's also delicious on sandwiches. I used Grey Poupon's Mild and Creamy Dijon mustard. Also, cook time is time in fridge. It will stay fresh for several weeks.
