Directions

Just wanted to say that I made a version of besotes calientes (Rosana mentioned having them at a restaurant) for a party last night and they were a HUGE hit! I simply blanched peppers (had jalapeno and hungarian wax handy), seeded them, stuffed them with a mixture of artificial crab, vidalia onion, and cream cheese, wrapped a piece of bacon around the pepper, secured it with a tooth pick, and threw the little bugger in the hot oil. Quite tasty I must say. The bacon is actually alot easier than gettin all sloppy with the batter (not so much fun, but neater), but watch the oil when you put them in cus the water in the bacon makes the oil a bit spastic.

"Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole Recipe and Video - My mom used to make this easy recipe every Thanksgiving when I was little. We kids could never get enough! It was our very favorite Thanksgiving vegetable. If you have children, or have some coming to visit you as guests this Thanksgiving, I guarantee that they will eat (and enjoy) this veggie dish! Even though I rarely cook with canned condensed soups, I still make this yummy broccoli casserole during the holiday season. It's fabulous with a Christmas ham and potatoes au gratin too. (Note: Be sure to use sharp Cheddar cheese for a nice full flavor.) Mmmmmmm!" - chef john

"I've made this twice. Used Franks, a bit of Worcester and some red wine vinegar. Only 3 breasts, as this is for 2! Add a side of Mrs. Tt's Pierogies and a salad ... Great Meal! Will make again and may also change the ingredients! I love experimenting with flavors." - kim s.
