Had the chance to try out the Macho Mayo Roasted Green Chile sauce the other day. Went the smoked prime rib route.
I slathered the prime rib in the Macho Mayo sauce then sprinkled with a bit of cracked black pepper...
into my horizontal woodburner with a kiss of mesquite...
Added a few tatoes rubbed with olive oil and sprinkled with coarse salt and cracked black pepper...
Brought the rib roast up to an internal temp of 128F then let it rest...
The resting roast. It fell over so I left it that way.... but it does look like it's resting. lol
While the prime rib was resting, I fried some Hatch Chiles in spiced up cornmeal....
made "rustic" smooshed tatoes with the smoked potatoes and supper was ready.
Added a nice dab of Macho Mayo Roasted Green Chile sauce for dippin'.
Great change from the usual horseradish sauce!!
A slice of smoked prime rib, cornmeal fried green chile, dipped in Macho Mayo sauce...
Loved this sauce! It can be used straight out of the jar for dips but slathering the prime rib before smoking made a nice, tasty bark. There are so many directions to go with this stuff, I'm looking forward to experimenting. :)
If you missed my earlier post on Macho Mayo. Here's more information about the sauce.
They also make a Spicy Roasted Jalapeno which I tried on a pork roast the other day. It was great!! Will post that cook asap.
Hope everyone is having a nice spring. It's been a bit busy here. The calves are doing well, baby chicks are running around the farm. No piggies yet but there will be soon,
The rain has been a blessing here. Everything is nice and green now. Looks like we will have a good crop of wild plums too.
On the down side. Lost a family member this week... it was expected but still hard to take.
Have decided to go camping for a few days, I hear the catfish are biting!
I'll post fish pics if I catch any. :)

The kind folks at Macho Mayo (formerly known as Mannaise) sent a couple of jars of their dippin' sauce for me to try. All I can say is Wow! Love the stuff!
They have two flavors, a Macho Mayo Zesty Roasted Green Chile and Macho Mayo Spicy Roasted Jalapeno. The sauce can be used straight out of the jar for dippin' or in your favorite recipes that call for regular ole mayonnaise. It's a great way to spice up deviled eggs, sandwiches, quesadillas or get creative and use it to spice up any boring meal.. :)
After giving them the pinky finger test I grabbed a bag of tortilla chips and went to town on em. Had to stop myself from devouring the whole jar before I could use some for cooking!
My first cook with the sauce was a Macho Mayo Zesty Roasted Green Chile Slathered Smoked Prime Rib. (Will post pics soon). Great change from the prime rib horseradish dippin' sauce routine.
A big Thanks to the folks at Macho Mayo! You've got some killer products (I mean that in a good way lol)
Macho Mayo can be purchased ONLINE if you don't see it LOCALLY .
Forgot to mention....
I'm not a huge fan of super hot food. I like to be able to taste the food without scorching my taste buds. Both the Zesty Roasted Green Chile and the Spicy Roasted Jalapeno sauce were not overpowering for me. They both had a great balance of heat and flavor. Great stuff!
