Chipotle Steak and Danny’s Bung Burner Mac and CheesePosted: March 8, 2013
it’s no secret that i like my food spicy. i’ve gotten tamer when it comes to “spicy” in recent years but i still like some “pica” when i eat. i’m here to share my recipes for a great steak and mac and cheese with a “kick”.
Chipotle Lime Steak
you will need:
1 flank/skirt steak
1 7oz can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 cup cilantro (just tear it up, don’t chop it yet)
2-3 garlic cloves. pressed, not chopped. just give a quick whack with a tenderizing hammer or side of a knife
juice of 1 lime
2 TBS comino (cumin)
place above ingredients in a food processor and mix until a paste-like consistency is formed. set aside. season steak with kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper. grill to desired doneness (4 minutes per side for medium rare) and let sit for 10 minutes. cut across the grain in a slightly diagonal manner. plate steak and top with the chipotle sauce. add more lime if needed.
Danny’s Bung Burning Mac and Cheese
you will need:
1 8oz box of elbow macaroni
1/2 16oz block of velveeta “mexican” cheese. cut into cubes. can use slightly more if needed.
1/4 cup milk
1 habanero chopped finely (can substitute with jalepeno’s). PLEASE WEAR GLOVES WHEN HANDLING HAB’S.
cook pasta in salted water until al dente. drain and set aside.
heat milk until it barely boils, then turn heat to low. add 3-4 cubes at a time to the milk until all the cheese has melted. note- you MUST keep stirring the cheese or it will scorch. add the habenero’s (go with half of one, 1/3 of one whatever…..just realize it WILL have some ass to it). when done (add more cheese to make it creamier- experiment with it) pour over the macaroni and stir well. i added some canned jalepeno’s for a little tang to go with the heat. enjoy.
honestly, this is the simplest, best tasting mac and cheese i’ve ever had. i used to fuck with a béchamel and different cheeses and butter and egg and all that shit. but this recipe is TITS. of course, you can use regular velveeta if you don’t want to dance with the fire God’s. lol. what i especially love is that it reheats VERY well. most regular mac and cheese reheats and gets clumpy, but when you use velveeta- you reheat it at a low power level in the microwave and it comes out damn near perfect.
for your Lenten meal, i’ll link my recipe for BBQ shrimp
and in other news i bought a new scented candle yesterday. if you’ve been around these parts long enough, you know i dig my scented candles. what…..no, i don’t want you to rub your cock on my face. pardon…no, i don’t have a pap scheduled anytime soon. do i what?…..no, i don’t want to go “antiquing” this weekend. are you done? please get it out of your system…..i’ll wait.
as a heterosexual male, buying a scented candle is dicey. i prefer “outdoorsy” scents. currently i’m rocking a sand and driftwood woodwick candle. i really dig the ambiance of candle-light. it relaxes me. now, if you see me (or any other “man”) buying a sherbet chiffon candle….please question their hetero-street cred. lol. and by the way- as i’m writing this and my candle is burning, i’m watching the hockey. GO FLYERS!!!!!!!
