Roasted Poblano and Charred Corn Pizza

Poblano & Charred Corn Pizza

In my eyes, my most prolific recipe in 2019 was a green chili and charred corn queso. I made that queso many times throughout the year after it became a hit at a Super Bowl party. This kept that flavor combo pretty constantly top of mind, and when I hosted a pizza party at the end of last summer, it quickly became something I felt like I needed to try out on a pizza. Fruity and spicy chilis and grilled sweet corn continued to deliver the hits in pie form with this roast poblano and charred corn pizza.

Grilled Green Beans with Chili, Garlic, and Lemon

When it comes to gift giving times, having a definite and public love for grilling can be a blessing and curse—on one hand, friends and family know the realm of presents that will delight me, but on the other hand, there's a limit to the grilling gadgets and gizmos I actually need. This has led me to amass some unused pieces of a equipment, and every now and then I decide to give on of those dormant items a whirl, like the grilling basket I used to make these green beans with chili, garlic, and lemon.

Sriracha Shrimp on Wonton Chips

Sriracha Shrimp on Wonton Chips

As food genres go, appetizers are my favorite. It's my favorite in a way that reaches a point of embarrassment for my wife as I hurry us into any cocktail hour as quickly as possible to be the first to storm the table and/or require us to strategically wait by passed hors d'oeuvres entry points to ensure I can get more than my fair share. So when I decided to host my first cocktail party Meatwave, where the menu would be focused exclusively on the type of small bites I crave, I went a little overboard in scope and ambition, but ended up pulling off nine different delicious dishes, and among the top of them were definitely these sriracha shrimp on wonton chips.

A heavier hit of sugar separates this white sauce from its brethren, offering a more balanced and, very likely, more versatile and crowd-pleasing flavor.
