Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Garlic Cilantro Lime Slaw

Yeah, we missed National Taco Day…so what? Who came up with all of these food days anyways? Was there a committee of stuffy old men smelling of Old Spice and Icy Hot sitting around a large boardroom table? Or was it a bunch of young hipsters sipping on grande mocha soy frappe carmel latte espresso agave sugar coffee… Continue reading Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Garlic Cilantro Lime Slaw

Fajita Chicken Wings with a Creamy Chipotle Dipping Sauce

     Some of you may know that yesterday was National Chicken Wing Day (7/29/14). If you lived in my house, you would have known for sure. One of my favorite food holidays of the year. What’s not to love? Crispy, bite sized food? You’re expected to use your hands? People don’t frown down on you… Continue reading Fajita Chicken Wings with a Creamy Chipotle Dipping Sauce

Taco Soup

     Soups. Not something we’ve tackled a lot of here on this blog. In fact, this is only the second one we’ve done. Not really sure why that is. Soups are generally easy, cheap and comforting. So maybe we’ll try and do some more this year as we move from summer into fall and then… Continue reading Taco Soup

     It’s that time of year again. Hatch Chiles have begun arriving in stores. At least, here in Dallas they have started popping up. If you don’t know if stores in your area have them, try checking out Central Market or Whole Foods to start out with. Central Market goes crazy with them. You can… Continue reading Hatch Chile Salsa

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

     When we cook whole chickens on the BGE, we generally like to spatchcock them and we usually do two or more if we have the time. Its a pretty simple, fool proof method of cooking them that doesn’t require much attention of the cook. The reason we like to do two or more is to… Continue reading Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Pulled Beef Nachos

     Do you remember a while back when we smoked some chuck roasts to make pulled beef? We didn’t eat all that pulled beef by ourselves. No, some of it got vacuum sealed and frozen for a later date. Last night was one of those later dates. What do you do when you are sitting… Continue reading Pulled Beef Nachos
