I know it's a bit early for most of you, but, I need to have the recipes of whatever you are going to cook at the fest so I can put together the "official" fest cookbook. I'd appreciate it if you would put it in the following format to save a lot of editing time :

Ricardo's Pico de Gallo
by Richard Howe (Richard Fl)

Ingredients :

6-8 whole Tomatoes
1 medium Red Onion
1 bunch Cilantro, fresh
1 can Green Chiles, diced, Ortegas/El Paso or similar
1-2 whole Jalapenos, fresh
Juice from 1 fresh Lime
1/4 cup Wine Vinegar
1 dash Cayenne Pepper
Fresh ground Pepper, to taste
1/2 oz. Cuervo Gold Tequila, to taste (optional)
2-3 Tbls. Hot Italian Cherry Peppers, diced (optional)

Preparation :

Take tomatoes and cut in half against the stem, remove the seeds and any juices and discard. Dice tomatoes in 1/4 inch pieces.
Sprinkle with a little salt and let set for 30 minutes to remove more juices (prior to doing this, if you desire, lightly roast the whole tomato to remove the skin-gas burner or grill is best, but keep some of the burnt skin for flavor and texture).
Finely dice red onion, jalapenos, and cilantro (leaves only).
Mix all ingredients (best the next day-will keep refrigerated for about a week).

This is the way we like it,but play around for your taste buds, there are choices for each palate.

Also, it would be helpful if you did a spelling check before sending! :laugh:


  • John, you should have asked for a little donation to be sent with each recipe to help defray the cost of your Chili bribery. :whistle:

    Just keep him away from the grapes and scotch, prefers single malt- or he will more than make up for lack of any donations.

    OK, you boys! It didn't take you long to highjack my "serious" post! :silly:

    BTW, a couple other pointers :

    teaspoon = tsp.
    Plate setter.....not place setter (platesetter is ok)

    What now you want proper spelling and/or grammar???

    Here's the mud crawlers corn bread recipe..

    Use Celtic Wolf's Corn Bread recipe and throw on some Jalapenoes...

    Ohhh John tighten the bolts on your small BEFORE you attempt to open the lid...
  • See, I don't use box cornbread, so I can't start with your recipe. I use all natural ingredients (not boxed stuff)

    You need to take your meds again mud crawler. You are starting to get delusions of grandeur again...
  • You can see when we start.

    include my Carey's Chili For Real Men recipe without altering it once I whip your purple little butt?

    How's the bribery going? any luck yet?
  • psst, Gene...

    Once you're done picking all that organic corn and arranging for the vestal virgins to carry it barefoot to the water-powered stone mill, if you really want to mess with Pete, get the competitors to all address him as "Sell-Tick" Wolf.

    Guaranteed enough flame to burn his cornbread crust! :ohmy: :evil: :laugh:
  • In Atlanta, I said "Seltic" just loud enough for Pete to hear. He almost snapped a vertabrae turning his head so fast to see where it came from.
