This time last year, I introduced King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls for the first time in a recipe for Roasted Jalapeno Honey Carne Asada Sliders. This recipe still remains one of my all time favorites!

As soon as I tried one bite of those sweet and spicy jalapeño rolls, I was hooked!

Jalapeño Cheddar Focaccia Bread

Jalapeño Cheddar Focaccia Bread

Last week I made the most tasty Greek Turkey Soup, and while I loved every bite of it, I was wishing I had some of my Rosemary Focaccia Bread to dip in the soup and soak up all the deliciousness.

I didn’t want to run into that problem again this week when I made my Chipotle Stout Chili, so I decided to make this Jalapeño Cheddar Focaccia Bread to dip up all that chili goodness!

Let me just start by saying, OH… WOW… YUM!

It must have been Pinterest or Foodgawker or Tastespotting, or maybe it was just my wandering mind, but somewhere, somehow, about a month ago, I saw a vision for monkey bread in my near future!

Where oh where do I come up with these recipe ideas, I wish I could tell you!

Why oh why do I decide to come up with these recipe ideas at 10:30 PM? I also wish I could tell you that!  Basically the worst time ever to be thinking about delicious food. Now it’s late, I’m in bed and I’m SO hungry!

I guess that’s just one of the very few downsides that come with being a professional food blogger 😉

Sausage Jalapeño Macaroni and Cheese

Sausage Jalapeno Macaroni and Cheese



One time my friends went on a “Macaroni and Cheese Crawl”. If you’re familiar with bar crawls, it’s the same thought, but instead of slamming beers and tequila shots, you head to the best restaurants for Mac and Cheese.

While I wasn’t able to make the crawl with them, I thought this was the best idea ever. Why, you ask?  Because Macaroni and Cheese is freaking awesome!!!!

Pappas Mexicanos

By now, I’ve mentioned Oklahoma restaurant, Ted’s Escondido, many times on the blog. From their Frozen Sangria to Homemade Tortillas, Ted’s is always a hit with my family and friends!

Another menu item that I continually drool over is their Pappas Mexicanos, a blend of potatoes, cream, onions and spices make this one delicious potato dish, Mexican style!

I whipped up my version of their tasty taters as a side dish to my Mexican Meatloaf! This turned a traditionally boring meatloaf and potatoes meal into a Mexican Fiesta!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs new potatoes
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 red onion (diced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 jalapeño (de-seeded and diced)
  • 4 oz can green chilies
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup Queso Fresco (not pictured)

Start by peeling and boiling the potatoes.

While they’re boiling away, place the diced bell pepper and jalapeño into a medium skillet with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook for 5 minutes, then add the onions.  Cook the vegetables until tender and onion is translucent, for about 10 more minutes.

Next, drain the potatoes and whip well with the sour cream using an electric hand mixer.

Next, add the spices, cilantro, green onions and mix well.

Then add the sautéed vegetables, mix and spoon into a casserole dish. Top with the Queso Fresco and place in a 375° oven for 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve garnished with additional cilantro on top!
