Live Cooks with Meat Smoke Fire

To watch the videos live and ask your questions, you need to follow us on Instagram at @MeatSmokeFire. At 11:30 am on Saturday, approximately twice a month, we go live. You need to log into Instagram and you will be notified we are doing a live video as soon as we start at 11:30 am.

The beauty of these live cooks is you get to interact, asking questions relevant to the cook or anything to do with the Big Green Egg or your grill.  We cook three dishes and share how we do them and then publish the recipes.

Saturday 13th January 2024 – Three Mexican(ish) crackers

I’ve never cooked an OTT (Over The Top) chilli, as I thought it was a gimmick. We decided we’d test this by cooking and comparing my chilli, next to an OTT chilli and then using the chilli in all the recipes. The recipes we decided to cook were:

  • Enchiladas stuffed with chilli and topped with our new enchilada sauce. Helena describes it as Mexican lasagne.
  • Beef chilli burritos – tortillas stuffed with chilli, Mexican rice, black beans and soured cream, served with guacamole and salsa.
  • Pasta fries with chilli – a TikTok sensation I’m told. Well, we cooked it during the week with a veggie chilli, and it was lovely.
