The May 2018 Piquant Post included the following items:
~Mexican Mole: Mexican Mole starts with a base of roasted ancho, pasilla, and chipotle chili peppers and builds layers of flavors from canela (Mexican cinnamon), cloves, sesame, coriander, and cumin. It ends with cocoa powder to provide an authentic finish. It smells SO GOOD. According to Piquant, Chicken Mole Poblano is traditionally stewed all day to release the flavors from each of the ingredients, so I am thinking this might be a good crockpot or instant pot meal.
~Taco Elixir: Taco Elixir contains guajillo chili, ancho chili, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, Mexican oregano, coriander, allspice, cloves, and cayenne pepper. We have been saving this for the perfect Taco Tuesday!
~Mexican Adobo: Contains ancho chili peppers, coriander, cumin, fennel seed, mustard, black pepper, paprika, Mexican oregano, and cinnamon. I do not believe I have ever had a Mexican rub on roasted chicken before, but now I am wondering why not? We don’t make roasted chicken on a regular basis, but we may after this.
~Chipotle Spice: A mix of chipotle chili, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, sage, cumin, Mexican oregano, marjoram, porcini powder, and black pepper. The recipe card for this one suggests a Chipotle Pork & Butternut Squash Chili. I am going swap the Pork for Chicken and make this on the first chilly Fall day we have!
