Chipotle Chili with Hickory Smoked Balsamic Vinegar

Chipotle Chili with Hickory Smoked Balsamic Vinegar

This is the latest recipe in the continuing series of "What's for Dinner" for the gourmet pantryOlive With A Twist.

Just before serving, drizzle a little Hickory Smoked Balsamic Vinegar over the chili. The addition of the balsamic adds sweetness to the heat of the chili while adding some extra smokey flavor as well. I like to eat it with tortilla corn chips, but corn bread would be more filling.

Skirt Steak with Blood Orange Chimmichurri Sauce

Skirt Steak with Blood Orange Chimmichurri Sauce

This is an adaptation of the parsley and vinegar based sauce from Argentina, South America that is used to marinate grilled meats and chicken. Variations include the use of lemon juice and cilantro. However the use of blood orange infused balsamic vinegar and parsley allow for a subtler blend of flavors that don't over-power the meat. 

This recipe was created as part of the continuing promotional series "What's for Dinner".
