Joe’s Fideo Recipe

Home Style Austin Fideo Recipe

A Texas Treat

“Fideo” actually refers to a dish made with short, vermicelli-style pasta (shown above in the lower left corner). Fideo is first browned in a skillet then various ingredients are added to typically make a pasta or soup dish. The folks at Q&Q sure know how to help us make tasty dishes – fideo has been a tasty Texas treat for more than 100 years!

While fideo can be prepared in a multitude of ways – this is my very own recipe that pairs greatly with enchiladas and a side salad. Enjoy!

Foodie Tips:

❤ What are “hatch cubes?” These are my own homemade treats that will save your time in the kitchen (shown below). I buy a frozen bag of Hatch Chilies from Trader Joe’s. I defrost it and pour the hatches into ice cube trays then freeze. I “pop” and transfer them into a Ziploc freezer bag and I can easily add the number of cubes into my recipe based on my appetite for heat. :) Pastas, soups, and eggs have never been the same since!

❤ This recipe can be easily doubled. Twice is nice!

❤ Fideo can be made in a million ways. Google or YouTube it and you’ll see.

How To Make Fideo

Shown Above: One Of My Homemade “Hatch Cubes”

Time To Prepare:

About 10 minutes.

Ingredients:

½ Tablespoon  |  Butter
5 ounce Box  |  Q&Q Fideo Vermicelli
1 Cup  |  White Onion, Chopped
2 Tablespoons  |  Tomato Paste
| Hatch Cube or a Small Can of Hatch Green Chilies (optional)
2 Cups  |  Chicken Broth
|  Garlic Cloves
Bay Leaf

What To Do:

1. In a skillet over medium-high heat melt the butter.

2. Add the fideo and sauté until the vermicelli is just golden brown (think Rice-a-Roni, but Texas style). I like my Q&Q toasted, but be careful not to burn it.

3. Add the onion and continue sautéing. Add the tomato paste, hatch (if using), broth, garlic and the bay leaf.

4. Simmer until the vermicelli is al dente (about 5 minutes).

5. Remove from heat, let thicken a bit, discard the bay leaf, and enjoy!

Yield: About 2-4 servings, maybe less, if you enjoy food like I do!

Recipe: Hatchbrowns

Hatchbrowns Recipe by Home Style AustinHatch Attack

If you’re like me, by the time August rolls around I’m already in the comfort food state of mind. This is a special time of year when the smoky and spicy taste of hatch chili peppers delight!

While some invite hatch peppers to lunch or dinner only, I love welcoming hatch peppers at the start of my day; this inspiration is how this “hatchbrown” recipe was born. Enjoy it and the rest of your fall “flavorites!”

Foodie Tips:

❤  Nothing beats the taste of freshly smoked hatches. If you’re not sure how to roast your own here’s an article with some tips that will have you a culinary hatch wizard in a snap. Take advantage of hatch roasting events at HEB or Central Market and enjoy the smell on the car ride home – prior to the devouring!

❤  If you’re in a flurry outside of fresh hatch season you can keep some Trader Joe’s fire roasted and chopped hatch peppers on hand. They pack just as much punch as the fresh boys and I encourage you to keep a pouch in your freezer year-round for those heated moments when you gotta have yours.

❤  Eggs? Poached eggs are on my mind. Here’s a recipe for how to make perfectly poached eggs! Follow the video – and not so much the recipe text beneath it (which differs).

❤  You’re likely to find another popular hatch-inspired recipe or two here on the Home Style Austin Blog. (hint hint).

Ingredients:

3 – 5 Strips  |  Bacon
3  |  Gold Potatoes, Washed, Dried, and 1/4″ Cube-Diced
1 Tablespoon  |  Falfurrias Brand Butter
¼ Cup  |  Roasted Hatch Chili Peppers, Chopped or Diced
To Garnish  |  Green Onions (optional)
To Taste  |  Fresh Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt (optional)
To Serve  |  Your Favorite Eggs (optional)

What To Do:

1. Over medium heat fry the bacon and remove from pan. Keep the bacon drippings in the pan. You know this is going to be good. :)

2. Add the diced potatoes to the bacon renderings and add the butter. Return to heat, stir and cook until golden crispy, about 10-12 minutes.

3. Add the hatch peppers and stir into the potatoes until warm.

4. Garnish with onions, salt and pepper and serve with a side of eggs.

Yield: About 2 – 4 servings.

This time of year the grill is on more than the television.

Foodie Tips:

  This whisky sauce tastes great on summertime classics like chicken, beef, sausage, pork – even green beans. Taste it once and you’ll see. :)

1. Combine ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.

2. Simmer for 20 minutes, until thick.

Avocado and Chicken Enchiladas

An Avocado and Chicken Enchiladas Recipe From Home Style Austin
Avocado Creamy Good!

When our friend Penny shared this recipe we knew we had to make this dish.

Sour cream, avocado, chicken and cheese can only mean one thing – we’re having seconds.

Foodie Tips:

  I like the tasty heat of jalapeño combined with the creamy sour cream sauce. If you’re a little heat-shy you can omit the jalapeño.

  We found our Mexican cheese mixture at our neighborhood HEB which was a blend of Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Asadero and Quesadilla Cheeses. You can substitute your favorite cheese – Pepper Jack would work well.

  Great sidekicks for this dish can include my spicy stuffed cornbread, chicken tortilla soup or a fresh garden salad.

Ingredients: 

For The Sauce:

1 Tablespoon  |  Unsalted Butter (I suggest Falfurrias)
1  |  Jalapeño, Chopped With Or Without Seeds (optional)
1 Clove  |  Garlic, Minced
1 Tablespoon  |  Flour
1 Cup  |  Chicken Stock
2 Teaspoons  |  Cumin
¼ Teaspoon  |  Salt
½ Teaspoon  |  Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
½ Cup  |  Cilantro, Chopped
1 Cup  |  Your Favorite Salsa Verde (we used Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde)
½ Cup  |  Sour Cream

For The Enchiladas:

4 Cups  |  Rotisserie Chicken Breast, Shredded
4 Cups  |  Mexican Blend Cheese, Shredded And Divided Into Two 2-Cup Piles
3  |  Avocados, Peeled And Chopped
8  |  Flour Tortillas

An Avocado and Chicken Enchiladas Recipe From Home Style Austin

Directions:

1. Make The Sauce: In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat sauté the garlic and jalapeño in butter for about 1 minute. Stir in the flour and cook for two minutes. Add the stock, cumin, salt, pepper and stir until everything comes to a boil. Remove the sauce from the heat and add the sour cream and cilantro; combine well and set aside.

2.  Prep Your Baking Dish: Coat the bottom of a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with nonstick spray. Pour ½ cup of your sour cream sauce and spread it to evenly coat the bottom of the dish. Preheat oven to 375°F.

3. Make Your Enchiladas: [Note: For this step only work from 2 cups of cheese for your enchilada filling so you will have 2 cups to sprinkle on top.] Top a tortilla with the chicken, cheese, avocado and a spoonful of the sour cream sauce. Roll up the enchilada and place it seam side down in your baking dish. Repeat this process until all your enchiladas are made. If you have any extra chicken or avocado no worries – you can sprinkle this on top of your enchiladas. Pour the remaining sauce on top of the enchiladas, cover with the last 2 cups of the Mexican cheese mixture.

4. Bake Away: Place in your preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is bubbly-gooey. Remove from oven and let rest a few minutes. You can garnish with a little more chopped cilantro or chopped avocado.

Hope you enjoy this dish!

Cowboy Bark Recipe

A Cowboy Bark Recipe From Home Style Austin

Chocolate Lover?

If you’re a fan of Trader Joe’s Cowboy Bark like I am, you’ll likely love this recipe. Who doesn’t want to take their taste buds on a flavor adventure with dark chocolate, nuts, heath bars and a hint of sea salt?

This recipe just has 7 ingredients – I refer to them as the “Magnificent 7” and after the chocolate is nice and gooey the kids can help decorate these treats … fun for the whole family!

Cowboy Bark is great for gift-giving! I make it for friends and clients … and soon my parents (if they find this post).

Foodie Tips:

  • The chocolate mix is the most important part of this recipe and you can customize it to your personal taste; you can use 100% of the same dark chocolate or a mixture of your own liking. I used a 12 ounce bag of Hershey’s Special Dark Mildly Sweet Chocolate Chips, 4 ounces of Nestle Toll House Milk Chocolate Morsels and a Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Lover’s Chocolate Bar that the folks at TJ gave us just for checking-in on Foursquare. Sweet!
  • You can top your bark with a few of your own special ingredients – we like dried cranberries, pistachios, cashews and of course Texas pecans, the Mother of all nuts.

Ingredients: 

18-20 ounces  |  Chocolate, Melted Warm (see foodie tip above)
1 Cup  |  Mini Pretzels, Broken Into Pieces (Rold Gold or Synder’s work well)
¼ Cup |  Lightly Salted Peanuts, Coarsely Chopped
¼ Cup | Lightly Salted Almonds, Coarsely Chopped
¼ Cup |  Heath Bars, Coarsely Chopped
8-10  |  Chocolate Oreo Cookies, Cut Into Bite-Size Pieces
A Sprinkling |  Gray Sea Salt, To Taste

Cowboy Bark Recipe

Directions: 

1. Line a 10″ x 15″ baking tray with a piece of parchment paper and set aside.

2. Ready all of the ingredients above – except the chocolate – so that once the chocolate is melted you can move swift, like the wind.

3. Place your chocolate mixture into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 15-30 second increments, stirring with a rubber spatula between cycles, until the chocolate is smooth. Do not boil!

4. Pour your chocolate mixture onto your readied baking tray and spread the chocolate evenly with a wooden spoon or large knife. You don’t need to spread to the corners; just keep the chocolate in one continuous “blob.” Perfection isn’t a requirement here.

5. Sprinkle your ingredients on top of the chocolate and top with a sprinkling of sea salt. Lightly press your toppings into the chocolate to ensure a friendly bonding.

6. Transfer your readied tray into your fridge for 30-60 minutes, until everything has “set.” With a blunt knife press into the chocolate – it should break into delightful chunks.

Yields: 20 or more servings, depending on the size of your bark cuttings.

Home Style Austin Orzo Salad Recipe

Home Style Austin Orzo Salad
A Great-Tasting Orzo Salad

If you love orzo short-cut pasta as much as I do, you’ll want to try this Home Style Austin house favorite – you might find it becoming a regular side or main dish at your dinner table.

Foodie Tips:

  • You can make this salad ahead of time and let it chill in the refrigerator – perfect to take on-the-go for a picnic or to the office for lunchtime.
  • You can also serve it warm and introduce some protein to make it a main course meal; adding chicken or roasted rotisserie chicken makes this dish delicious!
  • If you’re shy with raw onion you can eliminate it or reduce it to ¼ cup.
  • I added goat cheese to lessen the intensity of the blue cheese flavor (sorry, blue cheese); if you prefer one cheese over the other you can go all the way and use ½ cup of your favorite cheese.
  • Don’t have – or can’t get – Trader Joe’s Artichoke Antipasto? You can substitute 2-4 ounces of marinated artichoke hearts.

Ingredients: 

½ Cup  |  Orzo Pasta (Prepared)
2 -3 Ounces  |  Trader Joe’s Artichoke Antipasto
1 Medium  |  Tomato, Chopped
½ Cup  |  Celery, Chopped
½ Cup |  Red Onion, Chopped
¼ Cup  |  Crumbled Goat Cheese
¼ Cup  |  Crumbled Blue Cheese
½ Cup |  Black Olives, Chopped
2 Tablespoons  |  Fresh Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, Chopped (Optional)
1 Tablespoon  |  Fresh Lemon Juice
½ Teaspoon  |  Dry Oregano
½ Teaspoon  |  Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

Directions: 

1. Prepare the orzo according to package directions, drain and chill in the refrigerator while you’re preparing the rest of the ingredients.

2. When the remaining ingredients are all ready stir them into the orzo and chill 1-2 hours.

Yields: 4-6 servings. Enjoy!

Trader Joe’s Bacon Cheese Bread Recipe

Trader Joe's Bacon Cheese Bread Recipe By Home Style Austin

It’s totally by sheer fortune that I scored this recipe for Trader Joe’s Bacon Cheese Bread. You too – this recipe isn’t even on their own website (I was given the recipe verbally from a Trader Joe’s Crew Member).

During Trader Joe’s Grand Opening Day here in Austin (September 20, 2013), I tasted this bread and it was delicious! I was really impressed that Trader Joe’s cleverly had all the ingredients conveniently located in a small refrigerator next to the sampling kitchen. Literally 10 seconds later and everything was in my basket and I was on my way.

Let’s bake bread!

Food Tips: 

Home Style Austin Foodie Tip  This recipe makes two batches of Bacon Cheese Bread. You will most likely either eat both batches yourself or if you have the willpower, you will gift one away, making someone very, very happy. Either way, you win!

Home Style Austin Foodie Tip  Try this bread “Home Style Austin Style” by topping it with fresh finely chopped rosemary after you add the cheese and bacon. Delicious!

Home Style Austin Foodie Tip  At $1.19 for a bag for the pizza dough you might want to stock up on this time-saving dough; it can be frozen and later thawed.

Home Style Austin Foodie Tip  Let’s watch this 15 second video that shows how easy it is to make your own magic.

Ingredients:

12 Ounces  |  Trader Joe’s Uncured Apple Smoked Bacon, Cut Into 1/2″ Pieces
2 – 16 Ounce Bags  |  Fresh Pizza Dough (Plain or Garlic Herb)
A Sprinkle  |  Extra Virgin Olive Oil
12 Ounce Bag   |  “Trader Giotto’s Quattro Formaggi” Cheese (Four Cheese Blend)

Ingredients for Trader Joe's Bacon Cheese Bread

What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. While the oven is heating up, cook the bacon pieces until crispy and set aside.

2. Prepare the dough according to the package instructions. If hand kneading vs. rolling, make sure you have some olive oil on your fingertips to aid with kneading and readying the dough for the pan. Bake the dough in the oven for 8 minutes then remove the bread from the oven.

3. Sprinkle the bread with 1/2 of the bag of cheese and 1/2 of the bacon (the remaining ingredients you can use for the second batch).

4. Return bread to the oven for 3-4 minutes or until golden-bubbly.

5. Remove the bread from oven, cut and serve. Enjoy!

Crazy For Trader Joe’s Austin

Trader Joe's Austin, Texas (Rollingwood) On Grand Opening Day

A Hunting We Will Go

10 years after hearing about the great Trader Joe’s, “foodie fate” determined that I would finally visit Austin’s first Trader Joe’s. Thankfully my neighbors encouraged me to rideshare to visit Austin’s first Trader Joe’s on Grand Opening Day. Was I crazy enough to tackle the grand opening craze and the much welcomed – although super messy – rain all in one morning? You betcha!

What’s In Store

Rudbeckia Flowers At Trade Joe's Austin

We arrived shortly after 10AM. The band was packing up and there were a lot of people flocking about wearing Hawaiian shirts, leis and Texas-sized smiles. Reading the Trader Joe’s website later I learned these people were the Trader Joe’s Crew Members (employees) who were hustling about. We noticed there were no shopping carts remaining. When we walked inside, I literally felt like I was inside a busy beehive. There were people everywhere. I quickly noticed there was no pulling of hair … No roundhouse kicks. No lunging for this or that. It was clear to me that Trader Joe’s knew how to turn potential pandemonium into organized chaos. Shoppers formed lines and carefully moved throughout the store. There was lots of laughing and I could almost see the sigh of relief on people’s faces knowing that Austin was no longer without Trader Joe’s.

The store was smaller in size than any of the lore shared by the TJ following. But what it may lack in size it offers in spirit and assortment across produce, floral, fresh and frozen foods, bakery, cheese, beer/wine and more.

The Texas Themed Trader Joe's Reusable Grocery Bag

Why Trader Joe’s Earned My Love … And Will Earn Yours

  • The Floral Department. I was genuinely impressed by the quality, assortment and prices of TJ’s flowers. One of the best floral collections in Austin.
  • 99 Cent Greeting Cards. Tucked next to the floral section are the cheapest cards we’ve found outside of ones we make by hand. With other stores offering greeting cards commanding $6, $7 or $8, it’s nice to find options that are easy on the wallet.
  • Cheese To Please. Surprisingly affordable *and* tasty, we never leave without 2-3 chunks of gold. Gruyere, Italian Truffle, and Jalapeño Cheddar Pub Cheese are some of our favorites.Trader Joe's Italian Truffle Cheese
  • Olive Demi-Baguette. Any olive-lover will surely love a loaf or two of this bread which is perfect for oil dipping. Word has it when we race around the corner only to find the store loaf-less, our hearts drop.
  • Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning. This stuff is mind-blowing delicious! You can use it in dips like this TJ favorite… but my preferred way to enjoy the stuff is sprinkled on top of a toasted english muffin that’s been graced with a smear of whipped cream cheese. It’s a breakfast treat!
  • Aioli Garlic Mustard Sauce. Just when I thought nothing could top my long-time favorite Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Mustard, in walks this stuff … a new house staple! Try some of this sauce on gently-microwaved spinach and presto – you have a super-tasty salad in mere seconds.
  • Cheddar & Horseradish Potato Chips. The slogan for this chip should be “Bet you can’t eat just one … BAG!”
  • Cookie Butter. This is a gingerbread spread that’s way more versatile than the hazelnut chocolate stuff. Good thing a spoon wasn’t within reach or I might have had some pre checkout.
  • Chocolate Croissants. Two words – try them. Don’t let the fact that you’ll find these in the frozen section deter you from enjoying their pure chocolatey greatness. Click the picture below for a close-up view of these coming out of the oven. Freshness!
  • Raisin Rosemary Crisps. Calling these “crackers” is an understatement. “Crispy sweet and savory bites of Heaven?” That’s more like it.
  • Bacon Cheese Bread. Enough said. Want the recipe? You can score it here.
  • The Trader Joe’s Reusable Grocery Bag. The Texas proud design on this shopping tote meant three found their way home with me. Make sure and look at the bottom of the tote for a special surprise. I’m sending a tote or two to my Texas-loving friends in Italy and at $.99/tote I seriously think this makes a more clever and cheaper gift wrap than any other wraps I can find.
  • No Weird Stuff. Contrary to the “Keep Austin Weird” T-shirts, when it comes to food ingredients, let’s leave out the weird. All of Trader Joe’s private label products contain no artificial flavors or preservatives, no msg, no synthetic colors, no genetically modified ingredients, no partially hydrogenated oils … you get the drift.
  • New Treats. With 10-15 new products coming to store each week I know we’ll always be able to find new treats to delight our tastebuds.

 

I Heart Trader Joe's

I left with many goodies to last me at least a week or so and I’m already planning my return trip back for another adventure. I was so excited to see, learn and experience first hand what others told me about I decided to gift magic via hand-selected Trader Joe’s gift basket to each client of mine who lists or finds their new home with me.

What – am I crazy? For Trader Joe’s? You betcha!  : )
