Hey, I’ve got a treat of a recipe for you. Easy & quick, healthy and just full of flavor. A little creamy, a little spicy and probably a little different than your everyday fare, unless you’re from Guatemala, where the dish Pollo en Leche de Coco – Guatemalan Chicken in Coconut Milk is from.
Talk about persistent, and maybe a bit coy, tomato jam came on slow for me. Before it began to whisper my name, I’d see it here and there, maybe on Pinterest, sometimes on Facebook and I think it even showed up now and again on our weekly Throwback Thursday link party.
We just can’t seem to get spring, here, in Minnesota. March started with below zero temperatures, warmed up to the 70’s for a day or two then dropped back down to a dismal, depressing, cold grey. Now it’s snowing. If I could only go to the Islands! Out of the question, but maybe a few Island flavors will brighten up my day, and yours. This is a Sweet Habanero Sauce. As it settles on your tongue, you’ll think “hmm, what’s all this about?” It’s pleasant and beautifully flavored and…sweet. But wait for it!
We’re deep into fall but still having those marvelous summery days and chilly evenings. Love that, seriously. Except when I wake up and it’s cold, cold, cold! Jerk chicken will just make you forget all that. Serve it with a fun salsa and some sweet potato fries and you’ve got a party on your hands!
I’m no world traveler, but if I were, I’d have tried one of the many versions of this salsa served all over South America. Truly wonderful with a bit of a sweet/sour undertone, I literally crave it at times. I’ve served it to others, too, who can’t get enough of it. Make it as fiery hot or mild as you’d like, and chop it, blend it or mash it with mortar and pestle.
