What can I add to salsa to make it better………….

Adding a little fresh lime juice and some minced cilantro can wake up even the sleepiest of salsas, ushering back in the flavor of just-squeezed citrus and herbs that taste like they came from a living plant.

For Tomatoes – Fresh tomato salsa is ideally made with firm, fleshy tomatoes. You can of course make the salsa with any kind of tomato, but the firm ones like Romas or hothouse tomatoes will hold up the best.

And for the Peppers – The best hot peppers for salsa include Serrano peppers, Tabasco peppers and cayenne peppers. Serrano peppers are biting hot and do not need to be peeled or steamed before using, making them easy to add to salsas. Peppers reach 10 centimeters long, and turn orange, red or brown from a bright green when mature.

Homemade Chicken Tenders with Everything Bagel Seasoning over Salad
Using everything bagel spice is a quick way to season and add extra crunch to breadcrumbs for chicken tenders. If you can’t find any premixed, make your own by combining equal parts dried minced onion and garlic, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, salt and ground pepper (see Associated Recipes).

Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

Mustard-Maple Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is about as lean as it comes so it’s a great healthy option, but it shouldn’t be overcooked as it can dry out. Maple and mustard make a sweet-and-savory mahogany-colored sauce. A delicate note of sage gives it a wintery touch. Fresh thyme or rosemary also work if you prefer. Serve with barley, roasted squash and a Pinot Noir…………..

Today’s Menu: Omaha Steakhouse Chili



For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas English Muffin and topped it with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. One cold morning out there, 17 degrees with a wind chill at 12 degrees! For the day we had a high of 34 degrees and mostly sunny. After Breakfast I wiped the Kitchen down with some Lysol Disinfectant Wipes. Got the counters, cabinets, microwave, stove and fridge. Next it was Pantry and Freezers. Cleaned and straightened both. For Dinner tonight another new Omaha Steak product, Omaha Steakhouse Chili.



One of the other 1st time items I ordered from Omaha Steaks is their Omaha Steakhouse Chili. As the other Omaha items it comes frozen, packaged in plastic bags you can boil or heat in the microwave. It’s made using Premium Ground Beef, Chili Seasoning, Spices, Black Beans, and Red and Green Peppers.



I’ll be boiling ours tonight. Another Do Not Thaw item. To prepare it on the Stove Top: In a large Sauce pan bring enough water to a boil in a pot to submerge the Chili Bag. I placed the bag in the water. Reduced heat to medium and let simmer 30 minutes. Removed bag with tongs and cut open corner using scissors. Poured into bowls and served!






I served it topped with Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a side of Oyster Crackers. I also added a couple of shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce. I’ve found some Delicious Chili here! Nice Seasonings with plenty of Ground Beef, BlackBeans, and Peppers! If your looking for a Delicious and super quick way to have Chili, look no further! Plus it’s a very easy clean up since all you used a sauce pan and boiled water in it. I’ll purchase more of this, good item for the freezer! For Dessert/Snack later a small bowl of Chex Mix with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.






Omaha Steakhouse® Chili
Omaha Steakhouse® Chili is a hearty meal brimming with perfectly seasoned ground beef and loaded with black beans and red and green peppers. It comes portioned in convenient bags you just boil, or heat in the microwave.

* Packed with premium ground beef
* Authentic chili seasoning with black beans, and red and green peppers
* Packaged in convenient bags you can boil or heat in the microwave
* 100% guaranteed delicious

It’s the first thing you notice as you start to ladle the simmering chili into your bowl: the deep, rich aroma of a perfectly cooked steak. “How is that possible? This is chili,” you tell yourself. But this isn’t just any chili – it’s chili created by America’s Original Butcher.

Loaded with ground beef that’s nicely seasoned with chili powder, garlic, salt, and pepper, our chefs then added hearty black beans along with red and green bell peppers to impart a layer of natural sweetness that harmonizes wonderfully with the beef.

One bite and you’ll agree – this is real good, feel-good-food at its finest.

Do Not Thaw

Stove-Top: Bring enough water to a boil in a pot to submerge soup bag. Place bag of chili in water. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer 30 minutes. Remove bag with tongs and carefully cut open corner using scissors. Pour into serving bowl and serve.

Microwave (1100-watt): Place unopened bag in microwave. Microwave on defrost for 6-8 minutes. Carefully cut open corner of bag and pour into a microwave safe dish. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir well before serving or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Stir well before serving.

Chili to lose weight……………

I bet you didn’t know this, but a big bowl of chili can help you lose weight. Yes, you read that right. The capsicum found in the chilies and the peppers used to season your chili will raise your body’s metabolic rate thereby raising heat production. Even sweet red peppers can do this. I’m going on a Chili Diet!

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – TEXAS RED CHILI

November 18, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – TEXAS RED CHILI. It’s time again for some Texas Red Chili! Made using Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast, mild and medium hot chilies, onions, garlic, spices, and to heat up a bit more cayenne pepper. You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wide Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020!

For all of you non-bean chili lovers, this recipe is for you! In addition to the instructions below, I would gather and prep all of the ingredients before starting the process, as I found I needed to stir frequently. To avoid getting the chili too hot, I used a combination of mild and medium hot chilies. You can adjust the heat to your liking with cayenne pepper. I stayed true to the San Antonio recipe, using lots of onions, garlic, spices, and Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast. The preparation was easy and I have to say the end result was pretty darn good! I hope you enjoy it too.

*A personal note on my introduction to Texas style chili can be found below recipe.


1 – 3 lb. Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1/4” pieces

4 – tablespoons olive oil

4 – tablespoons butter

1/3 – cup masa/corn flour
2 – tablespoons Mexican oregano

2 – tablespoons cumin

2 – tablespoons Mexican chili powder

Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast

1 – tablespoon salt

1 – teaspoon black pepper

3 – Texas sweet onions, about 7 cups

6 – garlic cloves, diced, about 3 tablespoons

2 – cups organic beef broth

2 – cups water

4 – dried Ancho chilies, stems removed, seeded and coarse chopped

6 – dried medium red chilies, stems removed, seeded and coarse chopped

1 – fresh Serrano chili, stem removed, seeded and finely chopped

1 – tablespoon brown sugar
¼ – cup fresh squeezed lime juice

*optional ½ – teaspoon cayenne pepper



1 – Prep ingredients. Spread meat out onto a large baking sheet and sprinkle with the corn flour.

2 – In a large cast iron or heavy pot, over medium high heat, heat pan and add 2 tablespoons each of the butter and olive oil.

3 – Add half of the floured meat to the pan and allow to brown, stirring occasionally, scraping the bottom up to keep browning even. Remove browned meat from pan with a spoon and place on a plate. Repeat this step with the remaining butter, olive oil and meat.

4 – Add the first browned meat back to the pot, along with the seasonings, stirring to incorporate.

5 – Add chopped onions and garlic, again stirring occasionally, scraping up the bottom. Allow the onions and garlic to cook for about 7 minutes.

6 – Add the broth and water to the pot, stirring again as above.

7 – Reduce heat to simmer and cover the pot.

8 – Place all of the diced chilies in a food processor (small ones work best) and chop. After peppers are a bit more chopped, add ½ cup of the pot liquids to the processor and blend again, creating more of a paste.

9 – Add the pepper paste to the pot, stir to incorporate and cover. Allow the chili to simmer for a couple of hours, stirring as above occasionally.

10 – When the meat is tender, add the brown sugar and lime juice. Stir to incorporate, and allow to simmer a few more minutes.

11 – Taste, and adjust seasoning to your taste, adding the cayenne if more heat is needed.

*My introduction to “RED”: On a trip headed south for a little winter quail hunting, we made a stop in San Antonio, at the Pearl restaurant. Listed on the menu was a bowl of “Red”. The waiter proudly informed us that it was real authentic Texas Chili, that it was all meat with no beans, and that the chef had just perfected their recipe. We ordered a cup to share – it was delicious. I was curious about the history of this famous Texas dish, so I did a little research.

As the waiter stated, the recipes I found for Texas chili were bean-less and loaded with onions and chilies. I learned a few other interesting facts including, that the chili pepper was not native to this continent. A Spaniard named Don Juan de Onate first brought chili peppers into New Mexico in 1598. They soon after became a staple throughout the southwest. It was later on around 1723, when Canary Island transplants had settled in San Antonio that the meat dish first became known. It was a replication from their homeland, made with local peppers, onions, garlic, and spices. This became know as a bowl of “Red”. Red chili soon became a favorite of the cowboys on the trail, with the camp cook using beef or buffalo. And, according to Lyndon Baines Johnson, “Chili concocted outside of Texas is usually a weak, apologetic imitation of the real thing.” I’m not so sure about that….
