Balsamic Cranberry Brussels Sprouts
Check out this awesome twist on a classic Thanksgiving vegetable side. The cranberries and balsamic offer and perfect sweet and sour flavor to balance out the roasted bitter notes of the sprouts. See the recipe here.
Squash Soup with Chile Puree
Here’s an exciting Southwestern flip on a classic fall soup. The chile puree offers an inner warmth to the squash soup that can’t be beat. Even the skeptics will find themselves surprised by this new flavor. A dollop of creme fraiche really brings the soup to life. See the recipe here.
Peking Style Roasted Turkey
Looking for an Asian flare on your traditional roasted turkey? Look no further. Roasted in the Peking style, this turkey combines that flavors of soy, molasses, orange, and ginger to make an enticingly unique bird. Count me in for a drumstick! See the recipe here.
Ancho Chile Pumpkin Pie
Thanksgiving isn’t complete without at least 1 pumpkin pie. And this one’s a zinger! Ancho-chiles (I’d recommend a puree over dried powder for more flavor) are added to the mix for a smoky, somewhat fruity pepper taste. Shave a bit of Mexican Chocolate over the top for a festive garnish. See the recipe here.
