What’s more comforting that a bowl of steaming hot chicken noodle soup? Maybe a bowl of chicken noodle soup with roasted green chile. The steamy broth and heat of the chile gives you a cozy feeling whether you are under the weather or trying to keep warm on a cold day. I seasoned the chicken with verde seasoning to give it a little Southwest flavor and let it simmer in chicken broth for a couple hours until it was so tender it would just fall apart. Once the chicken is prepared everything else can go back in the pot with the exception of the green chile. In the time it takes to cook the noodles this soup is done. The green chile is already roasted and chopped so it can be added to the cooked soup along with a sprinkle of dried cilantro and your done.

There are numerous recipes for wings that include different spices and flavor blends. In the back of my mind I’ve always wanted to try a seasoning using green chile. Could I come up with a recipe that would taste as good as it sounded in my head? I’ve never seen Green Chile Wings on any restaurant menu but the thought has always crossed my mind, why not? Red Hot Sauce is the base for Buffalo Wings so why not use Tabasco Green Pepper Sauce as a base for Verde Wings. I’ve searched the web looking for a recipe but frankly there’s not much out there and what I did find wasn’t what I had in mind. So once again, I turned to my spice blend guru, Chef Paul Prudhomme, for inspiration. His Buffalo Wing seasoning is to die for so I used that as my guide and traded out the red spices for green chile powder. This seasoning mix was instrumental in the dry rub for my wings, the verde wing sauce and also making a cilantro dipping sauce. I made a small batch just to see how they would turn out just in case they were a bust. I don’t always get the response I’m hoping for but these Verde Wings turned out way better than I could have hoped for. I got some “Wow’s” but mostly the response was “Oh My Gosh”. I shouldn’t have worried so much because the guys couldn’t stop raving about them until they were completely gone. These would be the perfect finger food for your Super Bowl party! Continue reading
