Spicy Pork Hash

This turned out so delicious I wanted to share.

1 lb ground pork
1 poblano chili pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 tbsp C &  J Farms Habanero Lime Seasoning (use less and it’s still yummy just not so hot)
1 tbsp C & J Farms dried minced garlic or 1 clove minced
3 tbsp lime juice
1 lb baby gold or red potatoes (mix is ok) halved or quartered
1/2 tsp C & J Farms Sea Salt
1/2 tsp C & J Farms Black Pepper
4 eggs
1 tbsp butter

In a large bowl combine the first three ingredients,  then add pork and lime juice and gently combine and let sit for the flavors to blend, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile cook the potato’s in boiling salted water just till tender.

In a large skillet cook pork mixture until pork begins to brown.  Stir in potato’s, add salt and pepper. Cook 5 to 7 minutes more until pork is cooked through and potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.

Cook sunny side up eggs in butter and serve on top of the hash.



Habanero Lime

Chicken Nuggets, Yes but..

I have had many requests for this recipe.  It is simple, quick and delicious. This is one way to dress up dinner with C & J Farms fresh seasonings.


1 package of chicken tenders (chicken pieces of your choice)
1/2 package of Panko Breadcrumbs unseasoned
2 to 3 tablespoons of C & J Farms seasoning Scarborough Fair
1 teaspoon of salt (C & J Farms has sea salt)
1/2 stick of butter
2 eggs
2 tablespoons water

Options: Parmesan Cheese, Monterrey Jack or …

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.  Cut the chicken into small 1 inch pieces.  Make an egg wash by whisking eggs in a bowl and add water.  Mix the Panko breadcrumbs, Scarborough Fair and salt all together.  Adjust this to taste, more or less seasoning if you like.  Option goes here if you choose, add cheese.

Dip the chicken nuggets in the egg wash then into the Panko mix.  Lay on a cookie sheet or oven safe pan. Once all of the nuggets are in the pan melt the butter.  Drizzle the butter over the chicken nuggets.  Make sure each nugget has a bit of butter.  Adjust your butter as needed.

Then pop in the oven for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.  I serve these with C & J Farms Jalapeno Honey as a dip.

I don’t measure exactly when I prepare these so adjust as you see necessary.  Sorry about that.  You can change this recipe up a lot. For a spicier nugget use our Olive Oil Dipping Blend with some Parmesan cheese.  Or our Habanero Lime with lime juice in the butter before drizzling over nuggets.  Use what you love.

When you take them out of the oven they are hot, crispy and delicious. Enjoy!

Cheesy Hot & Spicy Meatballs

We are working on some new recipes to enter a few of our spicy seasonings into the Scovie Awards.  Not everyone likes Hot and Spicy foods but for those who do we want to have yummy healthy products for you too. These meatballs are simple, delicious, moist and spicy.  Remember, you can adjust the spice to fit your own scoville tolerance.


1 1/2 pounds ground hamburger meat
3 large eggs
1/2 cup bread crumbs
6 heaping tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons olive oil (I use a mild flavored one.)
3 tablespoons dried C & J Farms Parsley or 1/4 cup fresh
1.5 tablespoons dried C & J Farms garlic or 3 large cloves minced
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoons C & J Farms black pepper
1 tablespoon Worcester Sauce
2 to 3 tablespoons of C & J Farms Hot & Spicy Blend
Mix all ingredients together until well mixed. Form meatballs by hand about 1″.  Put a small amount of oil in your skillet and add the meatballs when the oil is hot.  Cook until done over a medium heat, turning as needed.  Recipe by Tara Tyler R.D./C.D.E.
