This recipe is easy to make and tastes great. Amounts can be adjusted to suit individual tastes to make it more or less sweet and spicy. Black bean paste can be used in placed of the peanut butter. Goes well with chicken, pork, beef, wild game and dim sum.
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.
These onions are great with burgers (try it with my recipe #309195).They can be cooked ahead, cooled and kept in the fridge. When you need them, simmer them gently. When they are hot, add a splash of beer to perk up the flavour.
This goes back a long time, and I still make it to serve with a turkey dinner. It is one of my favorite cranberry recipes, and is always enjoyed by everyone. Serve this at your holiday dinner table and you will receive rave reviews! You can make this up to a week in advance.... this has the perfect balance of sweet and tart with the the right texture! No need to double the recipe this makes close to 6 cups, plan ahead the sauce needs to chill for 24 hours before using and you may omit the walnuts if desired
I developed this tartar sauce about 35 years ago while working as broiler chef in a nice family steakhouse in California that didn't have a decent tartar sauce and didn't really care that their sauce couldn't even stand up to that on McDonald's Filet of Fish. I love this, since it is obviously designed just to my taste! It's good enough that it's even converted a couple of devout tartar haters, including my wife, who hates the stuff, to true believers. She uses more of it than I do!
Who would have thought? A GUILT FREE Hollandaise Sauce that does not compromise on flavour!!! This is our go-to recipe and we find it better than the sauces filled with butter. Sauce can be made in advance and refrigerated for up to 1 week. From 'Smart Cooking' byAnne Lindsay.
So good it should be illegal! You can tweak this one to your own preferences...but it's great just as it is! And from start to finish, you are done in less than 30 minutes. Eat your heart out Rachael Ray!
From www.TopSecretRecipes.com This recipe is a copy-cat of the wonderful avocado sauce served at El Pollo Loco restaurants. It is great with taquitos, chicken or shrimp quesadillas. Don't expect an extremely thick guacamole, this is a thinner salsa--the consistency of the sauce you usually get with taquitos. Also, the heat of fresh jalapenos varies greatly. If you like milder salsas, remove the seeds; if you like it hot, don't bother removing them.
This recipe comes from recipelink. Suppose to taste like the "Chicken Kitchen" sauce. Very flavorful. So simple to make. Great for dipping chicken,pork or whichever you like. Make it the night before wanting to use, so flavors can blend in.
Chilli jam is a very popular item in Australia. My hubby even likes it on his vanilla and/or chocolate ice cream. I finally came up with this recipe -- that is easy-to-make, and not too hot and not sweet. The fish sauce gives the flavour an Asian twist. As an aside, my tablespoon is equal to 3 teaspoons. For a hotter result, you can leave the seeds in the chillies, or simply use more.
This recipe is taken from Emeril Lagasse's book - 'From Emeril's Kitchen'.
The preface to the recipe states "This spicy Portuguese sauce is an awesome addition to any dish. Serve it as a condiment for seasoning soups or other pasta dishes to totally kick them up." The Portuguese had a huge influence on African cooking. Posted for ZWT.

My dad just loved to experiment in the kitchen. This was one of his recipes that we all went nuts over and he didn't end up destroying the kitchen. It is absoultely wonderful over steaks or baked potatoes. Don't be afraid of the anchovies. My 10 year old son love this. P.S. He doesn't know about the anchovies. It sounds terrible but I can promise you that it is absoultely wonderful. My dad came up with this recipe
I blend fresh organic carrots, mango, onions, garlic, and a hint of lime juice with the Habanero. The result is a pepper sauce that harmonizes heat and flavor without the overpowering pungency found in traditional vinegar-based hot sauces. Creating a spicy but not overpowering sauce that allows you to spice your food without drowning out the original flavor.
The capsaicin is not only hot on the tongue, it is brutal on the eyes or in cuts on your fingers. When preparing peppers you can wear rubber gloves to protect your hands and keep your hands clean. capsaicin has a way of staying on your hands even after washing. Safety glasses will help you avoid splashes or touching your eyes while cutting and cleaning peppers.
The steam from boiling vinegar is very strong. Avoid breathing it.
Cooking your hot sauce will help blend the flavors together, break down pieces of solid ingredients and pasteurize the sauce. It is an important step which should only be skipped if the sauce will be used up completely within 1 week. These Bottles can be processed and be bought at http://www.leeners.com/index.html
