Stuffed Poblano Peppers with Easy Mole Sauce

spp1.jpg

I adore Mexican foods.  Love playing with all the fantastic ingredients, today I decided to stuff  poblano peppers and make a fabulous Mole sauce using It’s a Mad, Mad, Mole seasoning. Mole sauce is something that usually is very time consuming and complicated to make. Using Milford Spice’s Mole seasoning made this a breeze and fantastic!  Not spicy, just enough to tickle your taste buds.  Soooo good!

I hope you enjoy!

Sweet Heat Honey Chipotle Street Tacos


We love our small town of Milford, Michigan. Everyone supports one another, there is a parade for nearly every occasion, stands are packed at the football games, and if anyone is experiencing trying times, you can bet a meal train is in the works. For years a group of committed individuals have been laser focused on building a skate park in the village, a place for the youth to go and get out to enjoy the fresh air and a little exercise. We are super proud and excited to announce Milford Spice Company has donated 1000 packs of our best selling HONEY CHIPOTLE, and we hope it will raise at least $1,000 for the cause. The Honey Chipotle is our best seller for good reason, it's incredible on salmon, chicken, shrimp, in soups, on sweet potatoes. Will you consider supporting the Milford Skate Park? 100% of your purchase price will be given to support the park. You'll receive a two ounce pack, with a nifty skate park label, as seen in the above photos.

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Recipe courtesy of Pat Bafile, P. B. Photo/Graphics.

An enchilada (en·chi·la·da) is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a chili pepper sauce. Enchiladas can be filled with a variety of ingredients, including various meats, cheese, beans, potatoes, vegetables or a combination. Originating in Mexico, enchiladas are a popular dish throughout Mexico and the American Southwest. This recipe has a different twist. We use Beef Short Ribs that are cooked Sous Vide. The meat is very tender and flavorful.

Easy Enchiladas


Easy Enchiladas is one of MSC’s newest blends. It is hand mixed with paprika, onion, chili powder, garlic, Serrano chiles, cumin, salt, sugar, coriander and Mexican oregano. It is fantastic as a Mexican rub, in a salad dressing and best of all enchilada sauce! It is amazingly easy to make. The flavors are so complex and rich, it is hard to believe we did not add the whole veggies into this sauce. Fabulous!


I ran into this lovely Mexican woman at the grocery store and she was kind enough to let me pick her brain in making this dish very authentic. She said when buying the corn tortillas, find the thinnest ones you can. They won’t fall apart like the thicker tortillas, which was very true. Also, finish the dish with Queso Fresco (Mexican crumbling cheese) and Mexican Crema, kind of a mix of sour cream and cream—delicious!


I chose to make a chicken, spinach and mushroom filling for my enchiladas. But, you can literally use whatever combo of veggies and/or meats that you wish.


You can also use this wonderful sauce for Huevos Rancheros, Burritos, steaks, chicken and fish. This would be great on just about anything.


My family loved this dish. I am sure yours will too.


An iced cold Tecate beer pairs beautifully with this dish.

Recado Rojo Marinated Chicken Thighs


We eat a lot of chicken in our home and I love coming across new and different spice blends. The Recado Rojo is from Mexican cuisine, especially of the Yucatán and Oaxaca areas. You may be surprised at the flavor quality that the achiote provides—this is sometimes added to tamales and empanadas for added color and flavor.


You can mix Recado Rojo with vinegar and a little orange or lime juice until your desired thickness is reached. Hand blended from achiote, coriander, cumin, allspice, Mexican oregano, sea salt, black pepper, garlic, cinnamon, lemon peel and whole cloves.


For this recipe I marinated chicken thighs (with skin) overnight in a little oil and Recado Rojo. The color and flavor of this blend is truly something special—fantastic! You can use chicken breasts if desired. It does not get much easier than this!


I served the Marinated Recado Rojo Chicken with our Bean Salad with Honey Chipotle Vinaigrette. Hope your family enjoys this as much as we did!


Happy cooking!


A glass of Argentinian Shiraz went very well with this meal.

Adobo Lime Roasted Tomatillo Salsa


This is one of my favorite salsas.  So fresh tasting with the lovely slightly roasted/charred flavor of the veggies.  I used Adobo Lime in this recipe because is adds such depth to the salsa.  This is hand blended with fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary.  It is one of Milford Spice Company’s all time best sellers.  One of my families favorite!


You can vary the peppers you use depending on how spicy you like it.  More serranos and jalapeños=more spicy.


You can use this salsa for anything.  As a topper for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, or just chips.  It is fabulous on Huevos Rancheros too!

Adobo Lime Ropa Vieja


Ropa Vieja is one of the national dishes of Cuba. It literally translates to “old clothes” because it resembles a heap of colorful cloths. This dish started as a shepherd's meal in the Middle Ages. It tastes even better the second day, so make a large batch ensuring you have enough for letfovers. There are many different ways to make this fabulous meal, this is my favorite. Simple and very tasty! Definitely a family favorite!


Adobo Lime is hand blended from fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary. It is a wonderful addition to chicken, beef, pork, fish and veggies. Adobo or Adobar (which means marinade or sauce) traditionally is cooking raw food in a sauce to enhance its flavor, then served over rice. It has been used by the Spanish/Portuguese/South American cultures for centuries and is now main stream all over the world. Adobo can be used in a sauce or as a rub.


I served this with Baked Mexican Rice.


An ice cold Tecate beer is perfect with this dish.

Empanadas


I had some pie dough that I bought on sale and decided to make Empanadas.  Quick and easy, great for the kids to help.  The pie dough makes these really flaky and delicious.


I used Mexican Blast to make this dish.  This is such a versatile spice blend, great in just about anything Southwestern.  Mexican Blast is hand blended with Mexican oregano, black pepper, ancho powder, pasilla powder, chipotle powder, cumin, granulated garlic, garlic flakes, granulated onion, onion flakes and coriander.


You can serve these with Mexican Rice and a Black Bean & Corn Salad.


An ice cold Corona light pairs very well with this meal.

Stuffed Poblano Peppers


Stuffed peppers of any kind is always fabulous! I adore Mexican foods so I thought I would put a southwestern flair on this concept.


I used Poblano peppers which have a wonderful flavor, not spicy at all and very good! I stuffed them with shredded chicken, black beans, roasted corn, Mexican blend shredded cheese and sour cream. I seasoned this with Taco Tuesday. This mix is hand blended from chili powder, domestic paprika, granulated onion, cumin, granulated garlic, Mexican oregano, brown sugar, black pepper medium, and cayenne pepper. This is a spice blend that should be a pantry staple, one of my favorites!


An ice cold Corona beer went very nicely with this meal.

Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas



I am loving the quick and easy sheet pan dinners! Today I made a chicken fajitas sheet pan dinner. I used two 1/2 sheet pans for this but you can combine on one. I chose to use a mix of peppers—jalapeño, poblano, anaheim and bell pepper. You can create your own mix of peppers depending on your preference and level of spice tolerance.


Taco Tuesday is such a wonderful blend of chili powder, domestic paprika, granulated onion, cumin, granulated garlic, Mexican oregano, brown sugar, black pepper medium and cayenne pepper. It is fantastic in just about any southwestern recipe.


I served this with Black Bean & Corn Salad. Healthy and light!



A glass of Sangiovese is great with this meal.

Black Bean & Corn Salad



This is great side dish to go with just about any southwestern dish.  It is a salsa/salad.  You can use it to top a dish as a salsa, or serve as a salad on the side.  It stores well in fridge so it lasts for several days.  You can add tomatoes, but then it would be best eaten right away.  Tomatoes deteriorate very rapidly in fridge, refrigeration damages the membranes in the tomato and causes it to taste gritty and mealy.


Taco Tuesday is such a wonderful blend of chili powder, domestic paprika, granulated onion, cumin, granulated garlic, Mexican oregano, brown sugar, black pepper medium, and cayenne pepper.  It is fantastic in just about any southeastern recipe.


A glass of chilled Chardonnay is great with this meal.


I used some leftover Black Bean & Corn Salad to top a plate of Nacho's for lunch the next day.  So yummy!

Mexican Blast Burrito Bowl




My girls and I love to eat at Qdoba’s restaurant.  We always get the burrito bowl, sometimes with rice sometimes without (we like brown rice but you can also use quinoa or another grain).  We try to eat really healthy the majority of time but we admit to having a serious queso weakness!  A mix of a little bit of queso and pico de gallo makes a perfectly divine dressing.


This bowl in comprised of baked chicken thighs (which have so much more flavor than breasts, I buy frozen and bake from frozen state) liberally sprinkled with Milford’s Mexican Blast, shredded lettuce, rice if you want it, black beans and corn, pico de gallo and queso.  We topped the bowl with some baked corn tortilla strips for crunch.  This fabulous south of the border seasoning is hand blended from Mexican Oregano, black pepper, ancho powder, pasilla powder, chipotle powder, cumin, garlic flakes, granulated onion, onion flakes and coriander.  This blend is fantastic in any south of the border recipe!


We enjoyed a cold glass of chardonnay with this meal.


Enjoy!

Tacos Al Pastor



Many years ago I was introduced to Tacos Al Pastor at a tiny, hole in the wall, Mexican restaurant in Boulder, CO.  I thought these were the most amazing tacos I had ever had. I cannot express how excited I was when Milford Spice Company introduced their version of this fabulous blend of Mexican flavors…


These are soo easy to make, just a few simple ingredients and voila, a wonderful, healthy dinner the whole family will love!  Traditionally, this pork is made on a spit and slow roasted for hours.  Juicy interior and crisp at the same time, deeply flavored by chilies with a hint of sweetness from the pineapple.  This version is much simpler and the results are fantastic.  You can keep or drain as much of the marinade as you want.  delicious either way!


Tacos Al Pastor is hand blended from chipotle, ancho and guajillo peppers, annatto, coriander, garlic, kosher sea salt, cumin, cilantro and Mexican oregano.


An ice cold Tecaté beer is terrific with this meal.

Homemade Tamales - Tutorial


Tamales are wonderful little packages of Gluten Free scrumptious yum! Once a year, my friends and I get together to make these assembly style. They are not difficult, just time consuming but well worth every second! We had so much fun, we hope you enjoy! 


We made two types of filling—red chili with pork and green chili with cheese and pork. Make the red chili sauce and the pork the day before assembling. We used two of Milford Spice Company's best selling Mexican spice blends for these. We used Adobo Lime for the green chili—this is hand blended from fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary. And Milford's Mexican Blast for the red chili—this is blended with Mexican Oregano, black pepper, ancho powder, pasilla powder, chipotle powder, cumin, garlic flakes, granulated onion, onion flakes and coriander.



We split the prep work and all worked together to make these fabulous. We hope this tutorial will inspire you to invite some friends over and make some memories and delicious food!

Mexican Blast Stuffed Chicken Breast




I came home from a busy day at the Farmers' Market and wanted to make something easy for dinner. I had chicken breasts on hand and decided to play pantry roulette! I found some tortilla chips, pepper jack cheese, frozen roasted corn and eggs. I decided to try stuffed chicken breasts with the jack cheese, encrusted with crushed tortilla chips and seasoned with Milford’s Mexican Blast. I was pleased it turned out so well!


Milford’s Mexican Blast is salt-free and is hand blended from Mexican oregano, black pepper, ancho chili powder, pasilla chili powder, chipotle powder, cumin granulated garlic, garlic flakes, granulated onion, onion flakes and coriander. As the name implies, it is BLAST of fantastic Mexican flavors!


I made Baked Mexican Rice and added the frozen roasted corn to rice and tomatoes, before baking.


We enjoyed an ice-cold Corona Beer and a slice of lime with this meal.

Taquitos with Fresh Roasted Salsa



I know that I am repeating myself, but I LOVE MEXICAN FLAVORS!!! The fresh, roasted salsa is made with Taco Tuesday and literally sings in your mouth. So flavorful! Taco Tuesday is hand blended from chili powder, domestic paprika, granulated onion, cumin, granulated garlic, Mexican oregano, brown sugar, black pepper medium and cayenne pepper.


I rarely fry anything, but I was in the mood for something crispy. If you make sure that your oil is nice and hot, the food you are frying will absorb less oil. Also make sure that you heat up (in a microwave or skillet) the corn tortillas before you try to roll them. Otherwise, they will crack and fall apart. You will need two long kabob or bamboo skewers to hold the taquito’s while frying.


An ice cold Corona Light with lime paired perfectly with this meal.

Chipotle Grilled Shrimp Salad


What is there not to love about Honey Chipotle! It has a little sweet and a little heat, I use this on just about everything. The flavor is so fantastic, natural honey marries beautifully with the smoky heat of the chipotle for a combination you can't beat on fish, chicken and veggies! Hand blended from granulated honey, sea salt, chipotle powder, granulated onion, Spanish paprika and Italian seasoning.


This salad is so refreshing and perfect for a light meal on a hot summer night. The shrimp can be grilled outside or inside in a grill pan.


A glass of chilled Sauvignon Blanc paired very nicely with this salad!

Grilled Chicken Tacos


My family loves tacos and truly any Mexican foods. Today I marinated some chicken breasts and thighs in canola oil and Mexican Blast. I grilled them and served them in corn tortillas with a quick black bean side dish. I also served Baked Mexican Rice and substituted Taco Tuesday for the Mexican Blast.


Mexican Blast is a delicious blend of chile peppers, garlic, onion, cumin, Mexican oregano and other spices that make your taste buds sing! I love this on everything from chicken, pork, steak to veggies and shrimp!


A glass of red Sangria goes really well with this dish.

Mojo Grilled Pork Tenderloin


We love grilling all year around. Three feet on snow, no worries! Though there is something really special about grilling in the spring when everything in turning green and lush. This Mojo Pork Tenderloin in the epitome of fresh tasting.  


Mojo is a Cuban marinade that uses citrus fruits, specifically sour oranges. Since this is something we do not have readily available, my research shows that we use 1 part orange juice to 1/2 equal parts of lemon and lime juices. The addition of Orange Zest makes the flavor pop—so good! Milford Spice Company's Orange Zest is made from only the fabulous parts of the orange peel, not the bitter pith! Great on salad dressings, in tea, desserts and orange chicken. I also used Cumin to enhance the Mexican flavors..  


It is ideal to let pork marinate in fridge overnight. If you are unable to do so—then a minimum of 4 hours. Remember to remove pork from fridge and from the marinade and let warm up for about 45 minutes prior to grilling. This ensures that the meat will cook evenly.


We hope you enjoy!


A glass of Pinot Grigio pairs beautifully with this meal.

Grilled Mexican Blast Carne Asada Steak



Cinco de Mayo is such a fun Holiday to cook for! I adore Mexican flavors and this dish has it in spades.


I made a wet rub and let the meat marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours—24 hours is best if you can.


Milford's Mexican Blast is a delicious blend of chile peppers, garlic, onion, cumin, Mexican oregano and other spices. It has an amazing flavor profile and is great with veggies, chicken and pork too. I served this with Scalloped Mexican Potatoes and Poblano Chilis. It went well with the Carne Asada Steak. 


An ice cold Dos XX pairs beautifully with this meal.

Chicken Enchiladas with Tomatillo Sauce



My family LOVES Mexican food! It can be really heavy though, especially around summertime. My goal is to serve healthier versions of our most liked dishes.  


Adobo Lime is one of my all time favorite spice blends. It is hand blended from fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary. It is so versatile to use on anything from veggies to grilling.


The tomatillo sauce is really fresh and light. You control the cheese to your liking!

Baked Churros



Cinco de Mayo needs a sweet addition! The mini Baked Churros have all the flavor and crunch but not the fat and calories. This healthier version is baked instead of fried and they are bite size.


Saigon Cinnamon has the highest natural oil content of any cinnamon (nearly 5%) giving this a magnificent flavor and aroma. It is amazing! You can use cinnamon in savory cooking as well as sweets, soups and stews.


Mexican Coffee would be perfect with this dish.

Fish Tacos



Fish Tacos are a staple in our menu rotation. I love to use almost any type of fish, light and healthy. This time I used a beautiful fresh Cod. It has a great firm texture and holds up really well.


I paired Fabulous Fajitas with the Cod. This blend is hand crafted from cumin, Mexican oregano, sea salt, red pepper, black pepper, garlic, coriander, paprika, white pepper, cinnamon, rosemary, marjoram, cardamom and basil. This is delicious on veggies, chicken, steak and seafood.


Serve with warmed corn tortillas and a blender salsa…  So delicioso!


A cold mug of Corona Beer tastes great with this taco!
