Two new books from dedicated chile lovers. DeWitt is coeditor of The Whole Chile Pepper magazine and author of The Whole Chile Pepper Book ( LJ 11/15/90), among others. This latest collection grew out of a column in the magazine featuring chefs around the country. Here are 140 chile-based recipes from restaurants of all types, from taco joints to the elegant Mansion on Turtle Creek, and inspired by cuisines from Thai to West Indian to Tex-Mex. Spicy food has gained many devotees, but the number of books on the subject is multiplying; for larger collections. Miller is chef/owner of Santa Fe's Coyote Cafe and author of Coyote Cafe ( LJ 2/15/90). His new book is an important resource for all those fans of chile dishes, for it is a fully illustrated guide to more than 90 fresh and dried chiles. Most recent spicy foods cookbooks include brief chile glossaries, but Miller's descriptions and Frank's full-color photographs should make identification easy for any cook confronted with the wide variety of chiles now available. Recommended for most collections.

Miller's recipe section, which he describes as a good cross-section of various chile dishes, includes one for Jalepeno ketchup. Now that should wake up any hot dog!! Most interesting, however, is the recipe for Mole Roja, from the Oaxaca and Puebla area of Mexico known as the 'Land of the Seven Moles.' Miller explains that some moles contain no chocolate (this one does, however, as well as dried plums or cherries to enhance the flavor of the ancho and mulatto chile peppers). Mole Roja is best served with fowl such as turkey. So, try this instead of cranberry sauce next Thanksgiving!
As I am trying to eat more vegetables, I find the 'Grilled Vegetable Salsa' with chiles, eggplants, shiake mushrooms, zucchini squash, and asparagus, most appealing. Or, if you want something sweet as well as colorful, try is the sweet potato and pecan salsa with maple syrup and cranberries. Miller includes color photos of all his prepared dishes. This is truly a great salsa book.

Nice descriptions of chiles accompanied with pictures. I especially liked introduction with history of chiles and their naming. Not many recipes, but it is not a recipe book.Published on Nov. 29 2013 by Amazon Customer
If you've ever read a cookbook that tried to verbally go into the differences on chiles, and you felt yourself get just a little lost when it came to the physical descriptions,... Read morePublished on Jan. 9 2001 by Mina
