The spring time is officially here and it's time to start introducing new menus. The first area I'm working on is enhancing the bar menu. I want to create a menu that has familiar items that most bar patrons recognize. I needed to maintain my creativity while staying simple in the execution and preparation for the staff. The first idea to make the cut is "Green Chile Poppers". My wife is a jalapeno popper fanatic and I wanted to introduce my own version of this classic bar snack. The cream cheese is blended with green chiles and fresh chopped cilantro. After rolling the mixture into small rounds shapes; they are dipped into a tempura batter and deep fried until golden brown. The spicy cream cheese melts inside the light airy batter and creates an amazing popper that increases your craving for a cold beer. The staff love when we start working on new ideas and require guinea pigs for their taste testing services.
