A twist on the famous New Mexico green chile cheeseburger, this stuffed burger is a favorite at our ranch's summer get-togethers. The cream cheese mitigates the heat from the jalapeños, but leaves the wonderful flavors of them and the green chilies intact. The chipotle mayonnaise, filling or even the uncooked burgers themselves can be made a day ahead and kept sealed in the 'fridge overnight. Just get them out of the 'fridge about half an hour before grilling.
A new take on a old favorite. I came up with these for a camping trip and when I was grilling them about a hundred people came by to ask what smelled so good.

A very quick chili, thanks to your trusty food processor or blender. And a very tasty chili, thanks to your trusty bacon.

This fresh salsa is so easy, you'll wonder why you ever used to buy the canned stuff. It's very spicy, so omit some of the peppers if you're serving to a crowd that likes salsa a little more toned down.
So spicy, it needs a month in a cupboard before it's ready to eat.
Liven up your skewers, kabobs and satays with this homemade peanut dipping sauce.
