Hot Dogs

The best part of a top-notch dog is its savory, smoky flavor — and we love this Chile Con Carne Hot Dog recipe for that very reason. The chili on top is made with hickory- or mesquite-smoked carne which really enhances the flavor.

Rich, creamy stout takes the flavor of these Chocolate Cupcakes over the top. The beer’s complexity (and distinct notes of roasted coffee and cocoa) make it the perfect addition when you're baking chocolate desserts.

Ice Cream

Opposites attract in this frozen treat. The blending of chocolate ice cream and warming spices like ground cinnamon and ancho chile powder make this Mexican Chocolate Milkshake a must-have for anyone who’s all about ice cream!

Grilled Cheese

The ultimate mash-up of two of our favorite food obsessions (bread and cheese) this Mozzarella in Corrozza is guaranteed to be one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches you’ll ever taste. The pieces are battered and pan-fried so the bread is unbelievably crisp — and the mozzarella is soft and stretchy.
