Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Movie Theater Snack?

Jamie Feldmar 50 comments

Summer blockbuster season is upon us, with all of the CGI explosions, heaving bosoms, car chases, and alien invaders that Hollywood can possibly conjure taking over the silver screen. (Oh, and Woody Allen has a new movie, too.) For me, that means ample opportunity to eat Junior Mints, Reese's Pieces, and Peanut M&Ms —what about you? More

Jerk Chicken Nachos from 'Ultimate Nachos'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Of the many unique recipes in Lee Frank and Rachel Anderson's new cookbook, Ultimate Nachos, the sweet-and-spicy jerk chicken nachos stood out as a must-try. As any spice-fiend knows, jerk marinade is a potent blend of scotch bonnet peppers, allspice, scallions, lime, thyme, and a plethora of other spices. The meat, most often chicken, is grilled to add a serious layer of smoke to the flavor profile. Adding cheese and salsa to build nachos is therefore a balancing act, and Frank and Anderson do it with ease. More

This is a DIY project I would say is all about unique taste and quality rather than cost—at least until the grape season hits locally. More

The Vegan Experience: Maduros with Mint Mojo

The Vegan Experience J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

Soft and tender plantains with a lightly greasy exterior and a sweet, caramelized flavor, maduros don't have the crispness you may expect from a starchier fried food, but that's part of their appeal. When sprinkled with a little salt and served with an acidic sauce, you can't ask for a better snack or hors d'oeuvres. More

Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups from 'Classic Snacks Made from Scratch'

Kate Williams 4 comments

I was rarely given Fruit Roll-Ups as a kid. Instead, my siblings and I were stuck with the healthier, thicker fruit leathers from the natural foods aisle. We often yearned for the pliable texture, bright color, and saccharine flavor of the decidedly fruit-less roll-ups in our friends lunch boxes. Now that I make my own food choices, I honestly prefer the more wholesome choice. Luckily, Casey Barber's recipe for Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups in Classic Snacks Made from Scratch bridges the divide.

Taste Test: Saffron Road Crunchy Chickpeas

Taste Tests Carey Jones 5 comments

Here's my stance on potato chips, Sun Chips, Chee-tos, and just about anything else in that snack category: I could take or leave the chip or chip-like snack. What I'm really after is the flavor powder. Put barbecue, ranch, wasabi, salt and vinegar, fake cheese, you name it on just about anything crunchy—and I'm happy. So I'm all about these Saffron Road crunchy chickpea snacks. More

Bar Bites: Kimchi Frito Pie

Marvin Gapultos 6 comments

A quick sauté or stir-fry of ginger, garlic, beef, and chopped kimchi goes remarkably well when poured atop a pile of Fritos. While some may see this version of Frito Pie as sacrilege, I see it as a nice change of pace for your Super Bowl party. More

Bar Bites: Barbecue Sweet Potato Chips

Marvin Gapultos Post a comment

When fried in hot oil, the sweetness in sweet potatoes concentrates and results in a tastier chip than regular russets, in my opinion. As for the barbecue flavor, a sprinkling of salt, cayenne, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and sweet paprika make for a great barbecue combination that won't overpower or mask the sweetness of the crisp, fried sweet potatoes. More
