Okra is frequently used in African stews as a thickening agent, and it was African slaves who brought okra to the New World.
Groundnut or peanut soups and stews are extremely popular in the cooking Ghana and Mali in West Africa; in fact, some consider it to be the most popular of all Sunday meals. Chicken is usually the preferred meat, but we have found that a variety of meats and seafood are also used, including beef, lamb, smoked fish, and crabs.
Here's another mulled cider that contains two chiles, the mild ancho and
the super-hot habanero. The ancho adds the raisiny overtones while the
habanero supplies an additional fruity heat. Serve this cider in large
mugs around a roaring fire in the winter.
This pan-African soup is both cold and hot at the same time. The chiles add the heat, and it is very refreshing in hot weather. The chiles help to cool down the body. Serve it as a first course with fresh bread.
The Russians are the true inventors of pepper vodka and they flavor
their vodka most commonly with cayenne. Any type of small fresh or dried
chile pepper that will fit in the bottle will work. Be sure to taste it
often and remove the chiles when it reaches the desired heat--the longer
the chiles are left in, the hotter the vodka will get! Serving
Suggestions: Serve over ice or in tomato juice for an “instant” bloody
mary. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.
There is a minor debate about whether or not this Argentinian sauce
should contain chile peppers. As usual, there is no real answer because
cooks tend to add them or not, according to taste. This sauce is served
with broiled, roasted, or grilled meat and poultry.
This light, olive oil-based sauce is all you'll need to adorn that perfectly seared chunk of asado.
Use the grill to warm up these potatoes while the lamb chops are grilling.
Next up, a very summery dessert that’s great for hot days when you want to cool down, but want a bit of a “Wow” factor for the guests you’re serving. You could also make this with orange, lemon or lime sherbet (or a combination).
There are many parallels between fish soup and bouilabaisse, which is popular in southern France. Tunisia has one of the richest fishing areas in North Africia. Any kind of fish and shellfish can be used but avoid oily fish such as mackerel or sardines.
