If you’re feeling adventurous, try this flavorful, jewel-like cranberry sauce. It’s delicious, smoky, not-too-spicy, and not-too-sweet.  I love it with roast turkey and chicken!

January 19, 2010 | By andrea | Comments Off on Beef & Black Bean Chili with Chipotle & Avocado | Filed in: Beef, Chili, Main Dish, Recipes, Soup/Stew.

This delicious chili is easy to make and loaded with flavor. I love the combination of the creamy avocados with the smokiness of the chipotle pepper. Mmmm, this recipe is a winner!

Here’s a delicious, Mexi-inspired steak just in time for grilling season!  I can usually find flatiron steaks at Fred Meyer. New York strip steaks or rib-eyes would be a good substitute if you can’t find flatiron steaks (adjust the cooking time to the size of steak you use). Flatiron steaks are best cooked to medium-rare and sliced across the grain. • Read More »

Wow…this salad is good! The dressing is smoky, slightly sweet and slightly spicy with a nice tang from the balsamic vinegar. I love the combination of southwestern flavors: cilantro, chipotle, avocado, red onion, corn. I used a mixture of baby romaine and regular romaine lettuces. Other good additions to the salad would be chopped red pepper, • Read More »
