My Chile Laden Thanksgiving Menu

Add a Comment

Hi all,

I recommended to all my readers on Butels Bytes (my free newsletter, sign up on our website at and in  articles I wrote in November to add chile to your Thanksgiving dinner to enhance the healthfulness as well as to hype the flavor into the "bold" category.  Here's the dishes that I had fun preparing and serving to my Thanksgiving guests:

Blue Cornbread Green Chile, Pecan and Sausage Dressing - I made blue cornbread from scratch and  flavored it with sauteed celery and pecans in sweet unsalted butter, coarsely chopped fresh frozen green chile and sauteed, well drained country breakfast sausage.  I used freshly made chicken-turkey stock from cooking the giblets to moisten the dressing before stuffing the bird.

Red Chile Giblet Gravy - It was amazingly delicious--my guests all said it was the best they ever tasted.  I also added a glug of port wine. For about 2 quarts of gravy, I added 1/4 cup pure ground mild chile.

I served the appetizer of the Beets with Romesco sauce featured in the November bytes.

I roasted the turkey my favortie English method way with the high heat sear and slow overnight roasting in the oven.  After the high heat sear, I doused the turkey with about 1/2 cup sherry and port wine mixed.

My guests all said it was the most delicious turkey and Thanksgiving dinner they ever ate.  I of course was very pleased and wanted to share this information with you for your future cooking.

I hope you enjoy these delicious ideas,  Jane Butel
