pueblo green chili

Pueblo Green Chili 

Pueblo Green Chili is not like any other Chili you have tried. It’s different, but delicious to say the least!

Pueblo Chile taste great with warmed tortillas or on top of an open face hamburger (in Pueblo we call that a Slopper).

Typically Pueblo green chili is pretty hot, so if you like a more mild flavor you can use Anaheim peppers instead.

Pasta with Eggplant

When you have fresh tomatoes and basil from your garden and an eggplant in your refrigerator there are so many delicious possibilities.

Basil is perhaps one of my favorite fresh herbs to cook with.

I have used it to make a delicious Margherita Pasta in the past but wanted to try something new and add in eggplant for a wonderful meat substitute so I came up with this easy Eggplant Pasta recipe.

We’ve been roasting, sautéing, grilling and frying cabbage for as far back as I can remember, but it did inspire me to try out different flavors and angles.

This is a simple green beans recipe using just 4 ingredients – fresh green beans, lemon, butter, and rosemary!

The combo of lemon and rosemary is delicious and I’m sure you will enjoy this twist on a favorite fresh garden veggie this time of year!
