Hi everyone! Colette here. When I visited Pendleton a few weeks ago, I got some great pictures and video footage of Barhyte Specialty Food’s factory and offices. While I was there, they were in the process of making, bottling, and packaging Saucy Mama’s Hot Wing Sauce, and I got to see it all in action! [Read More]
Lately I have been noticing many interesting ways to use fruit for cooking. I have seen watermelon and feta cheese salads and fruits soaked in alcohol for a yummy, adult summer-time snack. This recipe, which came from last year’s food blogger cooking contest, is from Candy at Soupbelly. Candy uses our Lime Chipotle Marinade for her pork chops and then creates her own nectarine salsa…just looking at the picture makes me hungry!
Here’s her recipe for this easy meal. She also has this posted on her own blog, which has LOTS of amazing photos of the prep and the meal. Make sure to check that out also.
4 pork chops (1” thick)
2 ripe nectarines, cut into cubes
1/4 onion, minced
1 Serrano pepper, minced with seeds
1/4 lemon (or lime), juiced
2 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
1) Place 4 pork chops in a zip-lock bag, pour marinade into bag. Seal and marinate for 4+ hours in the refrigerator.
2) To make salsa, mix nectarines, onion, pepper, lemon and cilantro together in a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
3) Grill pork chops, approx. 3 minutes per side. Top with salsa. Serve.

As we are wrapping up our last few contestant submissions for our “I am a Saucy Mama” Contest, we took a look back at some of our awesome recipes from last year’s food blogger contest. This one, from Megan Katauskas at Imperrfections, caught my eye again for two reasons. One, it is a wrap, and these just seem perfect for a summer lunch. Two, it uses both Lime Chipotle Marinade and our Hot Wing Sauce. Can we talk about delicious? Thanks for the recipe, Megan!
2 chicken breasts, sliced
1/2 C Saucy Mama Lime Chipotle Marinade
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 green pepper, cut into strips
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
4 Tbsp sour cream
2 Tbsp Saucy Mama Hot Wing Sauce
shredded cheddar cheese (this time I used a Mexican 4-cheese mix)
small flour tortillas or romaine lettuce leafs, white parts removed
Mix the marinade and chicken together, and marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge. In a large skillet, saute the onion and peppers in oil. Once they start getting tender, push to one side of the pan and add the chicken (shake off excess marinade and discard).
Cook on one side for 2-3 minutes then flip and cook 3 more minutes. Stir everything together and spoon into tortillas or lettuce leafs. Mix together the sour cream and hot sauce and use to top the chicken wraps along with a little cheddar cheese.
On Sunday night of this week, Virgil’s at Cimmiyotti’s, a local restaurant here in Pendleton, had their one year anniversary party. It was great fun! Anyone who has ever been in the restaurant business knows how much work is required to start a new restaurant and then keep it running successfully. Jennifer Keeton, the owner, has not only [Read More]
