Green Chile Peach Preserves – Small Batch

Green chile peach preserves are made with fresh peaches, roasted chile, and no pectin. A delicious jar of sweet and spicy. | mjskitchen.com

 

Fresh peaches and roasted New Mexico chile – what a great combination!!!  This simple little recipe for Green Chile Peach Preserves yields a jar of sweet and spicy goodness, chunks of sweet peaches with bites of spicy chile.  These preserves are made using the same method as all of my quick & easy, no pectin jams.  The only difference is that I chop the peaches rather than chopping and smashing them. If you want jam – then just smash the peaches after you chop them, mince the chile, and cook as directed in the recipe.

Green Chile Peach Preserves can be added to marinades, used as a sauce for grilled or roasted meats, scooped on top of baked brie, spread on hot biscuits, muffins or toast, or one of my favorites – spread on top of a toasted muffin with cream cheese.  Then, of course there is the option of just eating it right out of the jar.  Hope you enjoy!

Three Onion Green Chile Soup – Served Cold

Stay cool with this cold Three Onion Green Chile Soup topped with toasted pinon, herbs and sour cream. #greenchile | mjskitchen.com

Green chile season is quickly approaching.  Picking should start within the next couple of weeks, so what better time to begin introducing some new green chile recipes. Last year I started with this Baked Blooming Onion with Hatch Chile, so in keeping with the onion and green chile theme, here is a Cold, Three Onion Green Chile Soup.

Cold soups help us get through the long hot summer, so they are a favorite meal this time of year.  This three onion green chile soup is a tasty cold soup with a richness created from the use of three different types of onion and a little spice from roasted green chile.  For a bit of sweetness and crunch, this soup is topped with a dollop of sour cream and toasted pinons (pine nuts).  Serve with a simple grilled cheese of cheddar and bacon bits or your favorite for a complete meal.

For links to more chilled soups, a couple grilled cheese sandwiches, and a list of New Mexico fresh green chile suppliers, check out the links at this end of the post.

This cabbage apple slaw pita pocket is a recipe I’ve been making for decades with little changes here and there for variety.  The most recent change was the addition of green chile dressing.  This dressing is made with homemade mayonnaise (recipe below), Dijon type mustard, and a generous  amount of green chile spice mix.  The green chile mix adds a bit of a bite to the slaw as well as the delectable flavor of green chile.  So good!

After a brief week of warmer weather, winter returned and so did the desire for comfort food.  Upon the request of a visiting friend, I made this New Mexico pork and green chile posole.  This posole, like most posole dishes, is hearty, spicy and warms you through and through.  It’s made with pork shoulder and roasted green chile, and served with warm corn tortillas.  The only problem with this posole is making sure you have enough, because everyone is going to want seconds!

Fried Green Tomato Tacos

Fried green tomato tacos with cabbage slaw, pickled peppers, and remoulade sauce #tacos #vegetarian @mjskitchen

 

Recently Bobby and I did a road trip through the coastal southern U.S. heading down to the Louisiana coast and ending up on St. George Island, Florida.  As always we ate only at local restaurants and as expected, Bobby always found the best of the best.  For lunch one day we stopped at a little place in Pascagoula, Mississippi, called Jack’s by the Tracks – “a Southern-Sushi-Juke-Joint-Fish-Taqueria-Neighborhood-Pub-Deli”. After pursuing the diverse menu, we both settled in on the tacos.  Bobby got the Shrimp Tacos and I went for the Veggie Taco with bacon. 🙂  The veggie tacos were fried green tomato tacos that were superb! Right then and there I knew I would have to give them a try at home.  And luckily…

Spicy Smoked Chicken Tetrazzini

Classic chicken tetrazzini made with smoked chicken and roasted green chile | mjskitchen.com
If you find yourself with leftover chicken or turkey, which we all do at one time or another, then you should make a tetrazzini. It’s such an easy dish to thrown together and is quite versatile.  This particular chicken tetrazzini is made with leftover smoked chicken and a few vegetables.  To give it a little kick, spicy, but not hot, roasted green chile is added.  The roasted chile gives the dish a bit of a spicy bite and is a complementary flavor to the smoked chicken.  We’ll be smoking a turkey on Thanksgiving so I can’t wait to make this with leftover smoked turkey.

Hope you enjoy!
