This months Culinary Smackdown Challenge "Battle Chile" has come to an end and now I have the arduous task of choosing the winner. All of the contestants brought their "A" game with a wonderful menagerie of delightful chili dishes to this months battle.
Thanks to all the contestants for joining in the fun...your dishes are all wonderful and represent the diverse nature of the use of chile's in cooking. This is going to be a very difficult battle to judge!
girlichef, brought her talents to the table with her beautiful Cheddar Serrano Bread! Fresh bread is one of my weaknesses, add to that two of my favorite foods...cheddar cheese and chile's and this dish is very hard to refuse! I would love to sop up some delicious tortilla soup with this spicy, bread!
Gloria's Blog Viva La Vida, brought on the hot stuff with her Polenta with Chili's and Crema Fresca. This dish looks so inviting with the hot bubbly smoothness of the polenta, paired with Serrano chile's and cilantro. The perfect dish for the family after a long cold day sledding in the Rocky Mountains. Grab me a comfy blanket and a bowl of this dreamy dish and I'm in heaven!
PALATABLE used her cultural culinary abilities to bring us this spicy hot Samabal Goreng (Fried Tofu & Tempeh). A traditional Malaysian dish, this one packs a powerful punch, with a combination of dried red and green chile's, garlic, lemongrass and tamarind, and coconut just to name a few. I'm ready to book a flight to Malaysia and get a taste of this beautiful dish!
