Green Chili is very popular where I live in New Mexico, you can find it in almost anything. I decided to pair up our state's famous green chili with eggs and cheese for a delicious breakfast burrito. As a nod to our neighbor state, Texas, I added jalapenos which gave the burritos a great kick. It's perfect "man" food for breakfast - it fills you up, has some heat, and doesn't take all day to prepare. Also, this breakfast is portable, wrap them tightly in foil and you are good to go!
Carne Asada tacos. Very easy entertaining recipe. If you can wield a food processor and a set of tongs, you are set. I always kick off the summer camping season by doing these over the campfire.
