It’s been a minute since I’ve had the Blackstone out. Figured I’d change that. today. Last night I started the chicken marinading. Marinade: 3/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro, 9T olive oil, 6T lime juice, 2T lime zest, 6T dark chili powder, 1T cumin, 1T kosher salt and 1T medium grind black pepper. I trimmed up about 7.5 lbs of boneless skinless thighs and marinated overnight. Shrimp Diablo was a wing it as I used a recipe offline which I threw in the garbage. At that point I just winged it. Roughly 9 guajillo and 6 arbol toasted then simmered in water till soft. Into the Vitamix with about 1 cup of the water and a can of diced tomatoes. 4T chili morita paste, 1 1/2T creamy peanut butter and about 1/2T lime. That’s GENERALLY what I did lol. I adjusted a few times to taste with Splenda and some white vinegar to kill bitterness. The shrimp marinaded overnight in just a little olive oil and Chile morita paste Cilantro Lime Slaw I made to offset the heat of the shrimp on tacos. Simple but very tasty. One bag Cole slaw mix, 1/2 red onion diced, 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro. Dressing is 1/3 cup olive oil , 1/4 cup lime , 1-2 T sweetener (I used Allulose) 1/2 t cumin, 1/4 t garlic powder. Salt and pepper to taste. Mix about 10 minutes before eating. Last up were my keto charro beans. I have linked them here several times.

Beautiful and delicious Jeff!

I liked that video Jeff, made the food look even better than just the photos…if that’s even possible.

Outstanding as always
Do you any photos of a flop so those of us not so gifted feel better?
Making plans for next weekend yet?
Oh yes, many flops. Most things I take at least 20 shots and then pare them down. It’s sometimes hard to get how good something looks in person to translate in photos. I’m still working on that. I find sandwiches the hardest. I am pondering a few cooks ahead now framing them up in my head. I have to do brisket soon but have some River things planned.
