Hatch Chile Croque Monsieur

Last week, we dug out a trusty old favorite for dinner, back from the early days of the blog: the croque monsieur.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. You make a gigantic, 5+ pound pork roast in the crockpot. While it’s cooking away all day, you wished you had a real job. Because the smell is killer. But the timer on the front of the crockpot says you’ll end up in the ER for a [...]
