Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This chili is EXCELLENT. I thought italian sausage in chili sounded bizarre, so I did not use it. However, once all the flavor came together I can see it being excellent. This is a VERY unique chili, very good though. The changes I made were a bit more onion and pepper. Fresh diced tomato rather than canned. More fresh garlic, used about 6 cloves. Fresh bacon, used a whole package to compensate for not using sausage. Used alot more seasoning, almost doubled everything, bunch of cayenne pepper too, also a packet of goya sazon. Used one cup of Heineken rather than a half cup. And I fried up the veggies using some of the bacon grease. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING CHILI!!! Writing the review now as it's been simmering 90minutes, so has more to go, as is at this moment it's just incredible. 5 stars and then some.

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
It's very nice to see Mexico's tacos are starting to get close to authentic recipes shared on the internet. Almost a decade ago after my first trip to Mexico City in 04, I came home thinking about nothing but the tacos.... Everything else was easy enough, onions check, cilantro check, corn tortillas check, fresh made salsa verde check (or the hot red salsa if you prefer) limes check, salt check, glass bottle coca cola check, but could't find a marinade recipe to save my life at the time. Even trying to google queries translated to spanish gave me nothing to work with. I was living in a heavily hispanic populated area of my city, the "Mexican-American" people that I talked to either had no clue how to marinate and season pork or beef to get an authentic Mexican taco meat, or just didn't want to let the desperate pale German in on their culture's secret recipes! Now there is a lot more on the internet written on how to season & marinate, thank god. A good taco recipe? yes.

Achiote Paste

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
Great recipe and saved my as i needed achiote paste for a recipe but couldn't find it in the mexican markets, but was able to make this. As the other reviewers noted, there is way too much liquid in the initial ingredient list..... I did not even read the reviews until after making it, and the marinade i needed the achiote paste for....... If you want/need a thick paste, USE LESS LIQUID. This is what I did and it turned out good. I would imagine the Original recipe might work good on its own as a marinade or seasoning sauce? The ingredients give a fantastic flavor. Just use less and more as needed, and for your taste. 5 stars. Thank you AG. Notes: Works well without the tequila. Subbed the lemons for lime (much less as been discussed) Used fresh squeezed orange and lime juices.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
Was really excited to try this based on the reviews.... had my doubts given a soy/butter base, but figured there had to be some simple magic in the combo of ingredients to justify the ratings.... but no... this is an extremely bland dish..... I really wanted to like it too...
