Flavorful, bright, and easy to throw together; this sauce can kick up your meals from boring to BOLD. Add some spice to your life! Use this as a dip for tortilla chips, as a sauce for a turkey wrap, a dressing for a salad, or on fish tacos. If you know me in real life, you know that my family LOVES green chile peppers. For the past 30+ years, we've ordered chiles from New Mexico by the bushel, shipped them to Tennessee (or Michigan, back in the day) and roasted them ourselves. Our freezers are always fully stocked with fresh green chiles to last the entire year. It's obviously a strange tradition... but I love that it's one we get to share with others. Over the years we've introduced MANY family and friends to the glory of the Big-Jim.

Creamy, flavorful guacamole that just might show up your main course. Guacamole is a staple around our house, but not just any guacamole. It can't be too avocado-y, or too limey, or too salty, or too bland. It can't be too chunky, the avocados have to be perfectly ripe, and the cilantro can't be too overpowering. (We're borderline psychotic.) But you guys... this guacamole is perfect. Trust me on this.
