Going to this otherwise unremarkable chain for lunch. They have amazing steak fries and a Crabcake sandwich. Yum! :banana:

Actually ended up getting the chicken. They've got this amazing mustard that's got some horseradish, chili powder, and chipotle in it.

mmmm mmmmm!

That reminds me of the joke about the "out-of-towner" picked to join the judging of the Texas chili contest. I'll see if I can that one in my emails...

Just give me the punch line, I remember the joke. My wife won't even touch my homemade chili anymore. Too many serranos last time.

08-27-2004, 04:21 PM
Not really a punchline...

"Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili
The original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened
to be standing there at the judge's table asking directions to the beer wagon, when the call came. I was assured by the other two judges
(Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy, and besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted." Here are the scorecards from the event:
__________________________________________________ ______
JUDGE ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.
JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
FRANK: Holy ****, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove
dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy.
__________________________________________________ ________
JUDGE ONE: Smokey, with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang. JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
FRANK: Keep this out of the reach of children I'm not sure what I
am supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.
__________________________________________________ ________
JUDGE ONE: Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.
JUDGE TWO: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.

FRANK: Call the EPA, I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels
like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back; now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting ****-faced from all the beer.
__________________________________________________ ______
JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
JUDGE TWO: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.

FRANK: I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it, is it possible to burnout taste buds? Sally, the
barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills; that 300 lb.
***** is sarting to look HOT just like this nuclear waste I'm eating. Is chili an aphrodisiac?
__________________________________________________ _____
JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground,
adding considerable kick. Very Impressive. JUDGE TWO: Chili using
shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne
peppers make a strong statement.

FRANK: My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me
needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage, Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from a pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off? It really pisses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw those rednecks!
__________________________________________________ ______
JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spice and peppers. JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of
peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.

FRANK: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous,
sulfuric flames. I **** myself when I farted and I'm worried it will
eat through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me
except Sally. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my *** with a snow cone!
__________________________________________________ _
JUDGE ONE: A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.

JUDGE TWO: Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. I should take note that I am worried about Judge Number 3, He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably.

FRANK: You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't feel a damn thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava-like **** to match my damn shirt. At least during the autopsy they'll know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful. Screw it;
I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.

That one is a classic, alright.

Anyone have any good salsas using Poblano peppers? I have some growing in my yard and hopefully, they'll taste like something. Also, hopefully, they'll be ripe before Christmas, since it's been too mild for them to really grow fast(and get hot). I have some chilis, too. Last time I grew Jalapenos, someone or something took it off the night before I was going to pick it. I hope it was the hottest one ever grown and whatever ate it had fire shooting out of its butt.

08-27-2004, 07:51 PM

After harvest are you giving up some seeds?? (Poblano, chilis), :D

08-27-2004, 09:19 PM
Put some abcissic acid on them JimN and they'll perk up.

08-28-2004, 11:02 AM
If they are good, I'd probably save some seeds.

Brian- doesn't abscisic acid trigger dormancy?

08-28-2004, 11:06 AM
Are you giving some up:wavey:

One of my bosses has a working farm and grows prize-winning veggies. He gives about 95% of it to a local soup kitchen and brings the rest to work. He hates veggies. I clean him out of Jalapenos, seranos, and Japanese Eggplant each year (not to mention the farm-fresh eggs).

I've got a great salsa recipe (my wife's got it written down somewhere) I'd be glad to share some time.

08-28-2004, 12:33 PM

Mark, until I get the actual recipe, give this a try. I go by taste, so I'm not using measurements

6 whole stewed tomatoes (or two cans)
lime juice
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
diced red onion
diced green bell pepper
one or two raw jalapenos diced (you can go hotter with serano milder with none at all).

Put it all in the blender and puree it. Pour contents of blender into a pot and simmer over low heat overnight or for around 6 hours. Stir ocassionally.

Oh, by the way, looks like I'm not a devotee anymore.

08-30-2004, 03:22 PM
Sounds good you…. Maniac.. I rarely use a recipe with measurements anyway. I’ll have to give it a try. Hope I can stick to the recipe but I may have to add a little Chipotle and tequila to taste.:o Thanks Doug..

08-30-2004, 03:57 PM
Doug- leave the seeds in the peppers or take them out?

08-30-2004, 04:35 PM
JimN, Out.

08-30-2004, 04:43 PM
Wouldn't it be hotter if you left them in?

08-30-2004, 05:09 PM

It looks to me the greatest volume of seeds from Doug’s recipe are in the green bell pepper, and would offer no flavor or heat. I guess the small amount of seeds from the jalapenos or serano peppers would add some heat but I think are typically removed. After re read of the recipe I don’t see an indication one way or the other. I will probably remove the seeds and adjust the heat to taste with, dried and ground seeds and smoked dried and ground jalapenos.

east tx skier
08-30-2004, 05:14 PM
As for the bell pepper, remove the core and seeds. As for the other "hot" peppers, it's optional. I'd probably leave them in the jalapeno, but remove them from anything hotter. You can saute or smoke the peppers to take some of the heat out of them if you like.

Good commercial salsas I've found lately.

Tejano and Arriba

08-30-2004, 05:21 PM
Thanks for that clarification Doug.

My wife has been on that low carb diet lately and I have found myself using a lot of salsa in her meals. This one will be a nice fresh change

east tx skier
08-30-2004, 05:34 PM
Isn't salsa all carbs? Hope you enjoy it. I'm going on old memory with that recipe, if I can remember to get the written version, I'll post it.

08-30-2004, 05:56 PM

I think (most) of the carbs in vegetables don’t count against your total carb intake. Or something like that

08-30-2004, 08:19 PM
:confused: Doug, after re-re-reading your recipe I have a question.. Do I have a misconception of what “salsa” is?? :confused: , (I am from up North and all). I think what has me all screwed up is the, “Put it all in the blender and puree it”, thing..

08-30-2004, 08:30 PM

You may be confusing salsa and picante. Oh and in your honor I marinated my rib eyes tonight with a light coat of olive oil to hold in the spices. Plus, we had a terrific French Onion Soup (found the recipe online), homeade mashed potatoes (none of that box crap) and some asparagus. The wife was thrilled. Plus I have the "outlaws" (inlaws) visiting.

08-30-2004, 09:06 PM
Salsa is just Spanish for sauce, anyway.

Made some guacamole tonight with one of my chili peppers. Just right for that. Not too hot, not wimpy. Tried a bit without seeds or membrane and it didn't have much kick, but then I used the whole thing in the mix and it was good. I'll try to save some seeds if winter doesn't start too soon so they get a chance to mature.

Wait a minute, did the guy from PA just ask the guy who lives upstairs from Mexico if he knew what salsa was? ;)

The answer is that you can blend it to whatever consistency you like. But what you have pre-blender is whole stewed tomatoes, which are a biatch to get on a chip if you don't use a blender. You don't need to blend until it's foaming, but mix it up a bit.

And while I'm at it. Here's a good guacamole recipe.

6 ripe avacados
lime juice a tablespoon or three
sea salt to taste
orange juice about a tablespoon
salsa a tablespoon or two
diced jalapenos (optional)
and (I know it sounds like I'm cheating, but it's amazing)
1 package of McCormick's Guacamole seasoning.

Brian, anytime you want to come down and cook for us, come on down!

08-31-2004, 12:58 PM
Not a chance Doug.“Do (I, me, Daddy Sweetwater) have a misconception of what “salsa” is??” ;)

Hey, Mark, just bustin' your stones a bit. I'd probably recomend not too much on the green bell pepper, too. It's really just for substance, but too much of it can lend some off flavors.

Pitched a yeast starter for my next beer last night. Tomorrow night is brew day. Amber Cerveza! Should be ready by Thanksgiving. Novemberfest!
