Asado de Chile Colorado (Pork Stew in Red Chile Sauce)

Entrée | Dinner | Red Chile | Pork | Mexican | Stew | Spicy

Have as a stew, over rice or with tortillas; wrap some up in a burrito and you will never go back to "Chipotle™" again. A specialty of northern Mexico, this recipe introduces pork shoulder to a combination of dried ancho, New Mexico, and pasilla chiles, a few spices and a bit of red to yield fork tender morsels of deliciousness.


Chicken Khao Soi

Entrée | Thai | Chicken | Curry | Soup | Thailand

Khao soi is essentially a curry soup, and as with any Thai curry, making the paste properly is the most important step. Similar in profile to muslim-influenced Massaman curry pastes, khao soi paste is made with a combination of moist aromatics and dry spices.


Roasted Corn and Pablano Chile Bisque

Appetizer | Southwestern | Corn | Soup | Chiles

A slightly smokey, creamy corn soup with a touch of heat from poblano chiles. One of my favorite summer soups, it pairs beautifully with white meat fish like halibut, Chilean sea bass or trout.


Spiced Red Lentil Soup with Crispy Fried Ginger

Soup | Lentils | Indian | Ginger

Intensely flavorful ginger marries well with the strong curry powder seasoning in this Indian-style lentil soup.


Tom Ka Gai

Appetizer | Entrée | Thai | Chicken | Soup

This classic chicken and coconut soup gets its rich and dynamic flavor from quintessential Thai ingredients: coconut milk, lemongrass, fresh ginger, lime juice, fish sauce, chile paste, basil, and cilantro. While warming and thoroughly comforting, this dish comes together incredibly quickly.
