Recado Rojo Grilled Pork Chops

Posted by Spice Girl on 7/31/2012 to Grilling Fun!
Every once in a while I come across a blend that really nails it. Recado Rojo, my love. Save the flashy allure of the Bourbon Smoked Series, set aside the decadence of my first love, Truffle Salt. The Recado Rojo is becoming one of those stand bys I go to when I want an all around crowd pleaser. 

It is at the same time earthy, yet bright with it's rich combination of achiote, coriander, cumin, allspices, Mexican oregano, sea salt, black pepper, garlic, cinnamon, lemon peel and cloves. I love to use it on pork chops, tenderloin, or pork roast. If you research this Mexican original from the Yucatan region, you'll find some fun ways of preparing with pork wrapped in banana leaves, richly coated in the Recado Rojo blend. 

Since I don't usually have banana leaves handy, I've improvised a bit on the traditional to make it my own way, and cook it right on the grill. 

Check out my new favorite: Recado Rojo Grilled Pork Chops.

A touch of heat with delicious sweetness of honey makes our Honey Chipotle a crowd pleaser every time! Click here for the recipe!

Consistently one of our best sellers, Honey Chipotle is a blend of chipotle powder, Italian seasoning, and granulated, natural honey. It is delicious on so many things. You can just about eat it on its own it is THAT good. 

Just a touch of heat balanced by the sweetness of the honey makes this a natural choice for chicken and fish - we especially love it on salmon - and we've also experimented with it as a popcorn topper and roasted nuts.

Ahhhh, mushrooms. One of the loves of my life. My BF calls them "butter sponges". We have a delicious blend called Wordhouse Wow: Herbs for Grilling. I like this on just about anything when looking for something light to throw on the grill. Delicious on fish, tossed with pasta, on chicken, etc... Tonight, we are using this tarragon rich blend on mushrooms. For a rich flavor with some fresh tang!~ Drill down and check out the recipe!
