Brazilian food has grown very popular in recent years and these jalapeno steaks are a fine example of the cuisine itself.
Pork tenderloin, which has very little fat, can be made more flavorful by marinating and seasoning before cooking. Remember when cooking pork not to overcook the meat. These medallions, marinated with mustard and chile powder, have a sweet-hot taste and light glaze from the honey. (This recipe requires advance preparation.)
Gwyneth Doland, writer for Fiery Foods Central, shares her recipe for this spicy dessert. This fluffy pie is a lighter alternative to dense, rich pumpkin pie most of us are used to. It’s served chilled, so the red chile kick comes as a pleasant contrast.
Mary Jane’s recipe is based on one by the Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten), but the shoeless TV cook wouldn’t dare to use red chile powder! You will need a springform pan for this cake since it would be difficult to get it out of a regular cake pan in one piece. If desired, you can use semisweet chocolate instead of bittersweet in the filling, and the cake will be slightly sweeter.
