Deep-fried Cheetos? Aren't Cheetos already deep-fried? (The answer is yes.) Despite the fact that the Wandering Foodie found them underwhelming, I'd still give them a try — after all, I've never been known to turn down Cheetos. What about you?

The blackberry relish can be refrigerated for 2 days. Let return to room temperature before serving.
If your lamb chops are on the thicker side, you will need to cook them longer. For instance, a 2-inch thick lamb chop will take about 4 minutes each side.
2 cups blackberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon chopped mint
1 tablespoon drained prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
Salt and freshly ground pepper
8 (4- to 5-ounce) loin lamb chops (1inch thick), trimmed
- In a medium-sized bowl, use a fork to mash blackberries and sugar until berries are softened but still hold their shape. Stir in mint, horseradish, lime juice, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
- Light a grill or preheat a grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush lamb chops with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until medium rare, about 2 minutes per side. Serve with the blackberry relish.

At the celebratory dinner in Cadiz, I'll offer my new Spanish friends an easy-to-make but delicious-to-eat sundae. Not just any sundae, one that keeps up with my Tex-Mex-inspired menu, a Mexican sundae with cinnamon chocolate sauce and dulce de leche ice cream.
Salty, crunchy peanuts and flaky sweetened coconut give texture to the frozen dessert. To look at the recipe I'll be using, read more.
