Hello everyone! Today I have Jen from Juanita’s Cocina – enjoy!
Hi! I’m Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! I was so excited when Erin asked if I would do a guest post on her blog while she went on vacation! Since I can’t go with her, I figure this is probably the next best thing…since I get to eat all of the sweets I make for “her”!
Erin is one of the first bloggers I began following when I started blogging 5 months ago. I think she’s an amazing and inspiring baker, but beyond that, she is super sweet. And she just so happens to be the hostess with the mostest of my favorite blog group, The Holiday Recipe Club. How can you not adore someone who uses every holiday as an excuse to make delicious food? You can’t!
I couldn’t make just any ‘ol thing for Erin. It had to be something delicious, different, and drool-worthy.

I am so glad I listened to my hungry gut. Because this is one of the most amazing desserts I’ve made in…well, in just about forever. The chiles bring a great smokiness to an otherwise boring apple cobbler. There’s just a *hint* of spice, which compliments the mild sweetness of this cobbler perfectly.
I hope you’re as excited about this dish as I was when I first saw it. Of course, I was downright amazed once I tasted it.
I swore up and down that I’d send some of the extra to Erin, but oops. We polished this off pretty quick. She’s on vacation anyways, so hopefully she’s having a good enough time that she won’t even know… [Read more...]
