El Diablo Hot & Spicy Mustards Giveaway + Product Review #sponsor #ad

Did you enter the #10DaysofTailgate giveaway and not win the El Diablo Hot & Spicy Mustard*? You have another chance...

I was introduced to El Diablo Hot & Spicy Mustard through an event earlier in the year. Then, they graciously agreed to sponsor an event I was coordinating last month. And, now, they have offered one of my readers the chance to try out their mustards that bite back with a 6-pack. And because I love them so much, I am offering another reader a 3-pack myself. Two chances to win...

I have had the opportunity to use their mustards in many, many recipes. Needless to say: I'm a fan!

*Full Disclosure: I received 6 complimentary bottles from El Diablo Hot & Spicy Mustard for participating in #10DaysofTailgate last month and 6 bottles for participating in #burgermonth earlier in the year. All comments are 100 % accurate and 100% my own.

About El Diablo...
We are a little mustard mad in my house. And by that I mean that my 10-year-old has his own bottle of mustard that he will not share with anyone else; he even made a Spicy Carrot Cake - with mustard -  for Easter this year.

We like mustards with a nice flavor profile. Good depth, rocking flavor, but with a smoothness.

I have tried all of their flavors: Mango, Heat Meets Sweet; Roasted Chipotle, A Kick of the Southwest; Steakhouse, Hearty Flavor to Treat Your Tastebuds; Texas Chili, Don't Mess with Texas!; Jalapeno, Popping with Pepper Flavor; and Habanero, A Flavor Inferno for Daring Types.

I even took them on a camping trip and everyone got to do a little taste testing with some grilled sausages.

Mango, Heat Meets Sweet
While I don't think I would necessarily have been able to pick out the fruit as mango (I might have guessed peach), the modicum of sweetness and fruit countered the spiciness and was my family's overall favorite. 

Roasted Chipotle, A Kick of the Southwest
This was our second favorite flavor. It still had a tinge of sweetness but with added smoky sensuality. I'm thinking that this was the favorite with our friends on the camping trip. We were already enveloped in campfire smoke, this just added to it!

Steakhouse, Hearty Flavor to Treat Your Tastebuds
I have to say that this one was the most mysterious to me. Its ingredient list reveals that it includes tomato paste. Yep, it's like a mustard tinged with ketchup. While it works well, it doesn't work with everything.

Texas Chili, Don't Mess with Texas!
This one also has tomato paste. Think about your favorite chili recipe - with a little heat and a little smoke. This is that in a mustard bottle. 

Jalapeno, Popping with Pepper Flavor
This one, in my mind, is closest to a traditional yellow mustard...just kicked up, say, ten notches. It is the brightest of the six and more tart than the others. It's straightforward, basic, but with a bite.

Habanero, A Flavor Inferno for Daring Types
This one is my favorite. The mango was my family's overall favorite, but I loved this sweet, pungent, and truly spicy mustard. Winner, winner.

These are mustards you have to try, especially if you like mustard and you don't mind a little heat. Enter my giveaway below, or you can purchase on El Diablo’s official online store. $5.99 for 2-pack + shipping.

  1. I like mustard with soft pretzels or corn dogs.

  2. I make a Pita Bread Egg Sandwich that is great with mustard!

  3. My husband dips EVERYTHING in mustard!

  4. I love to use mustard in my homemade BBQ sauce - each time I try to use a different kind of mustard to switch it up for the family!

  5. I like to use mustard in a marinade for salmon

  6. I love making vinaigrette with mustard and using various kinds of mustard is a great way to change it up. And then there's the wonderful flavor that mustard provides on burgers - yum!

  7. I like to make homemade salad dressing with a little bit of mustard. The mustard really makes a big difference.

  8. I like it in doctored up baked beans. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  9. My favorite dish that uses mustard is a hamburger.

  10. Love pretzels with spicy brown mustard.

  11. I love mustard with hamburgers and hot dogs!

  12. We like mustard on Grilled hot links

  13. Sounds odd and maybe isn't a 'dish' per se, but I don't make a vinaigrette (and I make one about every 3 days) without a bit of mustard. You guys are chefs so you know that it has to be there to create the suspension, but I travel very far afield from what Jacques Pépin might recommend using everything from the standard Colman's powdered (of which I have a huge restaurant style tin) to jalapeño, cranberry, coarse English and beyond. Then, of course, this stuff isn't only for salads; it's also for marinades, painting on grilled stuff or last minute dumping on chicken bits and putting them into a slow cooker. The men around here are passionate mustard eaters (the hotter the better) so I think they would be thrilled by the El Diablo selection.

    ~ sorry about the delete (s) above, but the auto-correct keeps turning the word 'cooker' into something else, something that seems rather rude. Seriously.

  14. I use mustard a lot in my cooking but especially in cream sauces and salad dressings!

  15. I make a few things with mustard. I do a seared pork chop with mustard kale sauce and I've also done a light mustard salmon. That condiment is so versatile and the possibilities are endless

  16. Easy one, Maxwell Street Polish Sausage (for those that don't know, this is a Chicago sandwich with consists of a grilled Polish sausage topped with grilled onions, mustard and pickled whole, green sport peppers, served on a hot dog bun)

  17. I personally love mustard in my potato salad. I'm always adding chipole sauce to the recipe though to spice it up. These mustards would be perfect for sprucing up potato salads but just every day uses as well.

  18. I love it with creamy chicken.

  19. a spinach artichoke dip that uses mustard and cauliflower instead of mayo

  20. Mustard is used, not only as a condiment, but as an ingredient is so many cold and hot dishes, with so many more uses than catsup, without the sugar the aforementioned product contains. Thanks so much for the additional giveaway opportunity.

  21. I love mustard in baked beans. And brown sugar too.

  22. Hot dogs and sausage on a stick.

  23. German potato salad. Ham sandwiches ... lots of things. I adore mustard.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
