Well, looks like another year of blogging, grilling and BBQ’ing is in the books. It was a great year, from the purchase of my new house to winning my first cooking contest; it all went by so fast. And just like a good food junkie I will remember this year by the food I cooked up. Is it wrong that remember the events of my life by the food that I ate??
|Green Chile Chicken Wings with Cream Sauce|
I cooked up some good stuff earlier in the year but it wasn’t until the middle of the year I came up with the Green Chile Chicken Wings with Creama Sauce. A deep fried chicken wing, seasoned with my green chile rub and topped with a creama sauce, simple yet completely delectable. This was the recipe that won the me a brand new Disc-It.
|Green Chile Stew with Smoked Pork|
My personal favorite recipe was the green chile stew. I had been working on the a green chile smoked pork butt dish for a few years and it all finally came together when I made it into a stew. It was the perfect fusion BBQ and New Mexican chile in a single dish. If one dish represents my culinary vision this would be it.
|BBQ’ed Dates and Burnt End|
What best of list does not include a bacon? Not this one. I’ve got two bacon recipes, the Billionaire’s Bacon and the BBQ’ed Date. Both of these recipes pair the rich flavor of bacon with a sweet ingredient for a totally amazing flavor profile. It’s stuff like this that will turn me into one of those crazy bacon junkies.
These were just a few of my favorites from 2012. I hope you all enjoyed them as well. If you have a favorite from any of my post, please leave a comment below. Or feel free to leave me a suggestion and I will try to cook it up in 2013, I can never have enough content you know. Happy Que Year Everybody!!
