Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Rating: 4.78 stars
This is similar to the hot wings recipe served at a popular restaurant chain. If you have ever had them, you have to love them.

Baby Back Ribs

Rating: 4.77 stars
These are tender and the meat falls right off the bone. Generally, people think of baby back ribs as a meal they would only order when at a restaurant, but they are so easy to make at home. This recipe could not be any more simple.

Mile High Green Chili

Rating: 4.57 stars
Green chili is a Colorado favorite, it's always a crowd pleaser when we have out-of-state visitors. Roasting your veggies first gives this recipe a deeper level of flavor. This can be served over rice as a main course, stuffed in enchiladas, or over potatoes and eggs.

Simple Grilled Lamb Chops

Rating: 4.71 stars
This very tasty and easy marinade for lamb chops can also be used for steaks.

Quick Baby Back Ribs

Rating: 4.67 stars
This is an easy recipe for ribs which won't be tough, like smoked ribs, or fall off the bone, like braised ribs. These ribs are done the right way, and I've never had better ribs than this.

Colorado Green Chili (Chile Verde)

Rating: 4.66 stars
My version of my mother's green chili. I like to serve it over oven-baked burritos or with beans and rice. If you can't find a chile roaster, look for frozen diced chiles at your supermarket. You can also freeze fresh roasted chiles for off-season use.

Chile Colorado

Rating: 4.55 stars
I like to make this chile for my Mexican husband, who also doesn't like tomatoes in his chile. This is a very Mexican chile. If you decide to add beans, do it after the chile is finished.
