The long-awaited companion to The Green Chile Bible, this vibrant collection of rich red chilli recipes celebrates the blending of historic Spanish, Indian, and western frontier traditions in southwestern cookery, and explores some of the best European and Asian contributions to the latest Southwest 'fusion' style. The Red Chile Bible caters to the desires of every chilli cook -- from the passion for finding new ways to cook with chilli to the ambition to achieve the ultimate classic salsa. It covers the gamut of Southwest styles from the traditional to contemporary, from down-home rustic to unashamedly elegant, from comfortably mellow to fiery hot.

A glossary and a list of sources are included.… (more)
