I must confess: I have
a romance with chipotle.
I discovered its
charms recently, thanks to Tony Avery Simmons, CEO and Chairman of McIlhenny
Co., makers of Tabasco hot sauce, who told me that since Tabasco Chipotle was
launched, it was a success.
Curious as I am, I
decided to try it and now I understand the reason for such a success story:
Tabasco Chipotle has the best of chipotle (ripe jalapeños, dried and smoked),
and the right touch of spicy Tabasco hot sauce, all in a bottle.
Thanks to Tabasco and
its Tabasco Chipotle, I've incorporated the sublime smoky flavor of chipotle
into my kitchen and now use it to make my new versions of macaroni and cheese,
meatballs, meatloaf, hamburgers, and any recipe with beans that I want to take
it to the next level.
End of the first love
My second love story
is about one of the newest gadgets to be introduced into my kitchen: the Imusa
avocado slicer. It has the exact size of a Hass avocado and it makes getting
the pulp a breeze. No waste. And no fuss. Just cut the avocado in half, remove
the seed and wham! You take out the pulp in the blink of an eye.
Easy to handle, the
avocado slicer is a "necessity" in any kitchen where guacamole is
made once a week or more. It’s easy to clean if you rinse it immediately after
use and also it can be washed in the dishwasher.
What follows is my
recipe for guacamole with chipotle, which was made using my Imusa slicer and
then seasoned with Chipotle Tabasco sauce. Two loves in one. What a deal, easy and flavorful!
