Take the pan off the heat and gradually stir in the milk to get a smooth sauce the consistency of a milk shake. Return to the heat and, stirring all the time, bring to a soft boil for about 5-8 minutes.

Stir in cheese and allow to melt. Don’t re-boil the sauce or it will become stringy.

After stirring in cheese, add some To The Moon hot sauce (which was designed for dogecoin btw) which gives it an awesome smokey flavor on top of being rather spicy!

Then put the bowl in the refrigerator and let them withdraw the marinade at least 30 minutes. Serve cold.

Spicy Shrimp Étouffée Recipe by CMVet

Shrimp Etuffee (CMvet @ HT)
I started making this after moving back to California, and was craving Alligator Soul(in Seattle)!
I recommend using a porcelain coated cast iron pot like a Le Creuset or similar.
Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 fresh tomatoes, chopped (or 1 can of stewed tomatoes diced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked habanero powder.
  • 3 tablespoons seafood seasoning (Old Bay)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons BeeBOMB Hot Sauce
  • 1 cup fish stock or chicken stock
  • 1 pound crawfish tails ( I never do)
  • 1 pound medium shrimp – peeled and deveined

Directions
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour, and stir constantly until the mixture turns ‘peanut butter’ brown or darker ( I prefer Mohagany), will take 20 – 30 minutes. I use a flat edged wooden spoon. This is your base sauce or ‘Roux’. It is very important to stir this constantly. If it burns, start over. This is where the depth of your Etouffee will come from..
Once the roux is browned, add the onions, garlic, celery and bell pepper to the skillet, and sauté for about 5 minutes to soften. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and fish stock, and season with the seafood seasoning. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Season the sauce with hot pepper sauce and cayenne pepper (if using), and add the crawfish and shrimp. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the shrimp are opaque.

Atomic Chili Recipe by CMVet

By CMVet @ HT

 
Started out as an Alton brown recipe that we have tweaked a bit….
I recommend using a 5-6 quart porcelain coated cast iron pot like a Le Creuset or similar.
Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds stew meat
  • 1 ½ pound Pork ( I use shoulder roast or butt roast)
  • 1 Table spoon Canola oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (12 ounce) beer (Fat tire is my preferred)
  • 1 (16 ounce container of Medium Salsa) (all the veggies are already chopped for you)
  • 20 – 30 Tortilla chips (will be the masa component, just much easier to use and get)
  • 3 Chipotle peppers canned in adobo Sauce. Dice into small pieces, remove the seeds if you’d like.
  • 2 table spoons adobo sauce (from the can the chipoltle peppers cam in)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons To The Moon Hot Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder (I use PexPeppers Smoked Habanero Powder)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Directions:
Cube meat into ½ inch cubes, larger (1 inch cubes) if you like to cook it a little longer and let it break down. Season with Salt and Pepper.
Heat pot on medium-high heat with oil in the bottom. Brown meat on all sides in 3 or 4 batches. Once each batch is browned, remove from pot and place in a large bowl.
Once all the meat is browned and removed, add the Beer to the pot to deglaze and scrape all the browned bits from the bottom (great flavor).
Add the meat back into the pot, along with the jar of salsa, chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, tomato paste, chili powder, and ground cumin. Stir to combine. Add the tortilla chips by crushing them in your hands to make really small pieces (don’t worry any larger ones will dissolve).
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 2-3 hours or until the meat is tender.

Pizza:

 

Ingredients:

  • pizza dough 1/2 of above recipe
  • bacon jam about eight-ten ounces
  • one pear
  • eight figs sliced
  • six ounces feta crumbled

 

I actually par-cooked my crust for about five minutes here on 500F because I was not sure how long these toppings would hold up to the high heat.  After five minutes I built my pizza by spreading the jam about the whole pie, adding the sliced pear, figs, and feta.  After about seven more minutes in the oven it was done.  I sprinkled it with a little cinnamon, and a little cherry smoked scorpion powder.

FetaPizza

Being the only dessert pizza I have ever cooked, I gotta say this is phenomenal.  Everything came together just as I imagined.  And for my first time making it, BACON JAM ROCKS!!!
