One Flew Over the Chicken’s Nest
There are some cuisines so intertwined with the culture that to think of the people also means to think of their food. New Mexican cuisine is like this. Entirely its own animal, New Mexican cuisine cannot be confused with Tex-Mex or Mexican. There is a spiciness present in every dish, from ice cream to lasagna. It’s nearly impossible to eat something in New Mexico without tasting a chile pepper. In the town of Hatch especially, chiles reign king. New Mexicans say their cuisine is a mix of Spanish and Native American styles, shaped and perfected over time to their present incarnation of what many New Mexicans consider to be the best food on earth. They aren’t sure about it being the best food on Mars, but that’s neither here nor there.
This seasoning blend will give you a small taste of that famous New Mexican chile heat without overwhelming the senses. Enjoy the flavors of this mild seasoning and maybe work yourself up to eating an entire Hatch New Mexico Chile. It’s worth the effort- the flavor of these chiles isn’t legendary for no reason!
What’s in it?
Our One Flew Over the Chicken’s Nest Seasoning is hand blended with black pepper, garlic, onion, Hatch Big Jim chile flakes, shallots, oregano, and sage.
This blend has a savory flavor with noticeable garlic notes along with onion and pepper undertones. While it does have a hint of heat as it hits the back of your throat, it is by no means a “hot” seasoning blend.
Where to Use One Flew Over the Chicken’s Nest
This blend is excellent on a wide variety of foods. Over the years, you may find yourself falling into the dreaded “chicken dinner rut” where you make the same kind of chicken repeatedly. This seasoning blend will help you step outside of that rut and reignite your love for a truly delicious chicken. It is great for the grill, but you can use it on chicken cooked in any way. Baked is a fan favorite.
This is a great blend for your morning eggs. You will get a nice little wakeup from the Hatch Big Jim Chile flakes that will carry with you through the day.
Chili in general tastes better when you add chile flakes, but a chile-based seasoning can do wonders for that quintessential fall food. Thick stews and hot soups are also made better with this blend.
If you prefer a vegetarian or plant-based diet, this blend is excellent with pastas, couscous, and many root vegetables. Roasted potatoes, carrots, or eggplants get a nice enhancement from this blend.
Cheesy dishes like macaroni and cheese are made more flavorful through this blend. Even a boxed macaroni and cheese will taste more gourmet with the introduction of this blend.
