Green Chili Ice Cream Recipe (shown with Chocolate Torte)

  • 12 egg yolks
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • ¾ cup diced green chile
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean (or 1 tbs. pure vanilla extract)

-Place milk and 3 cups heavy cream in a saucepan.  Split the vanilla bean, scrape out the seeds, and place both the beans and seeds in the cream.  Add the green chile.  Scald the milk mixture.

-Place yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk until well blended and very thick.

-Slowly whisk about 1/3 of the scalded milk into the yolk mixture to temper it.  Then whisk the yolks back into the mixture.

-Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture is thick enough to leave a path on the back of the spoon, about 7 to 10 minutes.

-Remove from heat and strain mixture into a clean bowl.  Whisk in remaining cream.  Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator until well chilled.

-Freeze in an ice cream make according to manufacturer’s instructions.
