Roasted Poblano Sauce

One of my favorite dipping sauces is this simple Roasted Poblano Sauce.  I've enjoyed this on pork chops, chicken, shrimp, heck even as a salad dressing.  None of the flavors are so overbearing that

Texas Mustard Sauce

If I go into 90% of the barbeque places in Central Texas, I won't find a mustard sauce.  That's just disappointing because I LOVE mustard.  I'm the kinda guy that puts mustard on a

Chicken Verde Poblanos

Chicken Poblano is a very popular dish here in Texas.  Typically the pepper is stuffed and deep-fried. Not these, I like to grill the chicken, shred and then smoke the peppers.  We need to

Chipotle Ranch Chicken Wraps

These Chipotle Ranch Chicken Wraps are perfect for a weeknight meal for the family.  I regularly use low carb tortillas and make the ranch with low-fat milk to help reduce the calories.  If you're
