Grocery company Raley's Corporation who owns grocery centers branded under Raley's, BelAir, and Nob Hill Foods puts out a complimentary magazine called extra. If you browse through the pages of Extra you will find tips, tricks, recipes, specials, and just about anything you can think of that relates to food.
Flipping through the pages of the January/February/March 2009 issue I came across the hotTen section; Ten favorite ways to spice up a dish. Being a lover of fiery foods this section caught my attention. Most of the items are your standard grocey fare; ortega sliced jalapeno, ro-tel, and the usual blah-blah. But two items caught my eye!
The Art of Chipotle Gourmet Paste with Adobo. Pfleider Pfoods, Inc
describes their chipotle paste as follows:
Avoid the painstaking cans, draining & preparation. Focus on cooking with our gourmet chipotle paste. This concentrated pure paste is the equivalent of several cans of whole chipotle peppers. Add to drinks, spreads, dips, sauces & any food item where extra smoke and heat is desired.
Sargento Bistro Blends Chipotle Cheddar with Chipotle Peppers. Sargento's website describes this smokey chipotle cheese as follows:
Chipotle peppers are slow-smoked jalapeño peppers with a bold, unique taste that is the perfect complement to our Cheddar Cheese. Add a unique twist to salads, wraps, omelets and, of course, your favorite Mexican dishes.
Both companies offer recipes on their sites to help get your creative juices flowing. It's great to have quality chipotle products at hands reach at your local grocery store.
