March 2010

Message From Jane 

With the sun playing peek a boo with dark, heavy, snow-laden clouds, I am reminded that there is still some winter left.

With chilly weather, I just love to have tummy pleasing—hearty and healthy, spicy one dish meals.

Butels Bytes-Oct 2009Chili is so versatile, once you have made a pot—you can make countless delicious dinners and casseroles. For a while, casserole dishes were almost a dirty word—but no more, I think we all missed them too much. And, for busy days, a casserole really fits the bill.

You can make two and freeze one for a real vacation from cooking sometime in the future. To freeze casseroles and keep from having all of your favorite baking dishes in the freezer, follow these simple guidelines:

Lightly oil the baking dish.

Criss-cross pieces of foil, cut to be long  enough  to cover

over the top of the casserole.

Flash freeze and package in vapor proof packaging such as a large freezer bag or rigid container.

Date it and store for later dining. Most casserole dishes keep for at least 90 days.

I am sharing some of my all-time chile-laden casserole favorites with you this month, all from my new, 2nd edition of the Chili Madness book.



To celebrate the green, how about taking advantage of our mild frozen green chile  special!  It is fabulous for making green chile stew.  Our green chile has just enough "bite" to know you are eating chile, yet almost everyone can enjoy the flavor.

BUY ONE AND GET THE SECOND ONE HALF PRICE--WOW!! WHAT A DEAL.  (Our frozen green chile normally costs $25.00 for a 2 pound package, shipped 2nd day USPS freight included.  Now you can get 2, 2 pound packages for $37.50 shipped to your door in 2 days.)
