The Best Chile Rellenos Ever

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever by Mihir Shah

I love chile rellenos and this is a spectacular recipe - I use a little less cheese than you'll probably get in a restaurant, but it "feels" better that way. Feel free to add more cheese (or use different kinds of cheese). Enjoy!

Chile Rellenos Soufflé

Chile Rellenos Soufflé by Salad Foodie

If you're craving a chile relleno fix, give this light south-of-the-border layered soufflé a try. I looked at several recipes then came up with my own combination and it fits my need for a guilt-free alternative. To save time use canned whole green chiles, or char your fresh garden ones if desired. One batch makes 4 generous-size…

Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice by John Spottiswood

I was looking for an improved Mexican Rice recipe, so I adapted this one from the America's Test Kitchen cookbook. I used many of the same ingredients, but instead of baking it, which seemed like a waste of energy, I finished it in my rice cooker. The result was a very flavorful and wonderfully textured mexican rice. Browning the…

Cooler Corn

Cooler Corn by Glenn

Large gatherings of people who like corn on the cob requires a couple of lobster pots or a wash tub and a lot of boiling water and patience. Not anymore. Thanks to tailgating technology there is a simple way to make dozens of ears of corn for the hungry revelers.

Cool and Creamy Ranch Cucumber Salad by Denise Sherin

This is a simple as 1-2-3. Only a few ingredients and a quick 30 minute chill and you are good to go. Great way to use up extra cucumbers. And it's a nice side to BBQ. Cook time is actually chill time.

My mom's been making this since we were little, it so refreshing in the summer time. It's basic and simple and great at picnics and bbq's and with no mayo in it won't spoil in the summer heat.

Homemade Refried Beans

Homemade Refried Beans by John Spottiswood

I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered. But this recipe is simple and it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. I figure my kids are the true test, since they aren't that…
