Pepperoncini Pickled Eggs

I decided to try making spicy pickled eggs today. The liquid is from a jar of pepperoncini, topped off with cider vinegar. This first effort is small - just two hard boiled eggs in a half-pint mason jar.

Savory Yogurt

Savory #yogurt: In Greece, more of term than not, Greek yogurt is mixed with savory add-ins. This was mixed with thyme, oregano, pressed garlic, fresh lemon juice, S+P, olive oil, minced olives, and tomato chunks.

Chile Toreado

At the Margarita Latin Grill in Burke, VA, tonight, I had some Chicken Tortilla Soup. On the side, I had something I'd never seen before, Chile Toreado. A jalapeño is roasted or charred in a frypan, then served in soy sauce. Sometimes, a serrano is used, or ponzu sauce, or soy sauce with lime. Sometimes, a little chopped onion is added. This is a side dish often served in taquerias and sushi bars in Mexico.
