Hatch Chile Pimento Cheese

Pimento cheese makes for a great grilled cheese sandwich. Pimento cheese loaded with roasted Hatch chiles makes for an outstanding grilled cheese sandwich. Or dip. Or burger topping. The cheese melts perfectly. And there’s just that slight green chile flavor. Not overpowering, not spicy. Just a really nice pepper flavor. I like that a lot.
Hatch Chile Pimento CheeseIf you can’t find Hatch chiles, you can substitute any mild green chile such as a poblano. Or in a pinch you can use canned green chiles. Our market sells 7 ounce cans of roasted green chiles that would work just fine as a substitute in this Hatch chile pimento cheese.

Spicy Hoosier Momma Pork Stir-Fry

Looking for a simple stir-fry that is packed with flavor? All you have to do is marinate your favorite stir-fry meat in Hoosier Momma Bloody Mary mix. We prefer the spicy version because it is oh-so-good-and-spicy) for a few hours, then toss into a wok with some veggies.
Spicy Hoosier Momma Pork Stir-FryFor even more heat in my spicy Hoosier Momma pork stir-fry I added a few (long) squirts of Sriracha hot sauce. You can use any hot sauce you like, or leave it out. Or add a few chopped jalapenos in with the vegetables when you cook them. Nothing wrong with a little kick.

Also try my Mongolian stir-fry sauce.

Cafeteria-Style Pizza

Am I the only one that actually enjoyed the pizza from the high school cafeteria? Maybe I was just lucky and our school had a special recipe that resulted in good pizza. This cafeteria-style pizza is mighty good too. Maybe this is the recipe! It’s definitely easy. It’s mighty tasty. And it makes a big ole pan of pizza in no time.
Cafeteria-Style Pizza

The key to making cafeteria-style pizza is pouring out the batter and getting it nice and even, from pan edge-to-pan edge. It’s actually quite easy to do. And it’s much, much easier than rolling your own dough out, believe me. It’s like making pancakes, really.

You can use whatever toppings you normally like on your pizza. Don’t go crazy with the sauce. You don’t want to drench the dough. A little will go a long ways. In the end you’ll have a great easy pizza!
