Christmas BellsHere’s to a very Happy Holiday for each and everyone of you! I think the Holiday season is the most tradition filled and perhaps the busiest of all holidays. We would like to make it easier for you to give something special to  the cooks on your gift list. What about giving one or two of my newest cookbooks that just came out last month?

Simply Southwest book coverOne, "Simply Southwestern" is a completely new book--the first in quite a few years--so it is very special with lots of history about the recipes and a new take on some old favorites.  The other book is a rewrite and edit of "Southwestern Kitchen"--the book Publisher's Weekly called "The Bible of Southwestern cooking". The above edition is softbound--we also have the hardbound edition.  We will autograph each book and ship to your desired designation.

Or, how about  sending a gift certificate for one of my award winning weekend or day classes. To find the list of classes just click on the calendar on the left side of my home page. Actually we are not date specific—any certificate can be used for any class and even rescheduled without any fee.

Gift certificates of any amount over $25.00 can be purchased for our Pecos Valley Spice Co. products. Also we have a nice assortment of our popular gift boxes that we will drop ship to anyone on your gift list.

TamalesFeeling a bit nostalgic for past Christmas seasons when we always had Posole with all the trimmings, Red Chile Beef Tamales with Red Chile Sauce and Dessert Tamales—I am sharing these family recipes with you for your own traditions.

Bytes Holiday Special

Free shipping on each Pecos Valley Spice Co. chile order until December 20.  We will also include a free cookie cutter!

We hope each of you has a wonderful Holiday!
