Beets in Romesco Sauce

Growing up I only remember eating canned beets, but I liked them from an early age. When I had my first fresh beet, I was in heaven. Cooked beets just heated up with butter, coarse salt and black pepper is on my favorites list. I usually cut off the stems and leaves, wrap them in foil, and roast (steam) them in the oven until tender. Romesco sauce is a Spanish sauce made from tomatoes, chilies and nuts and is amazing with roasted vegetables, fish, chicken…and come to think of it, most everything.

Mango-Hot Sauce

Mango-Hot Sauce is easy and quick to make. Great on oysters, chicken, pork…almost everything. The fruit base to the sauce really balances out the heat from the peppers. Other tropical fruits that work well are Papaya, Pineapple and Guava. Try adding a little fresh passion fruit juice to take it up a notch.
