Past News Releases


The world’s first on-line chile cooking course “All About Chiles” is taking registrations. This complete, comprehensive course is focused solely on learning about chiles and how to cook with them.

In a beautifully designed series of 40 lectures by Jane Butel (, participants will cook with chiles in Southwestern and Mexican dishes. Hints and tips for cooking with both green and red chiles will be completely spelled out. Also, the healthful benefits, history and lore will be taught.

Jane Butel is an internationally renowned teacher, first to write and popularize Southwestern cuisine. The best-selling author of 18 cookbooks she conducts cooking schools, culinary tours and is now teaching online. Her cooking schools are rated as Best in the US by and one of the best by Bon Appetit magazine. For more information, check her website at

In this series, the enrollee will be guided through the preparation of chile dishes from the popular Southwestern and Mexican dishes to Quick Southwestern dishes to chili con carne.

Most of the classic, favorite chile-laden dishes of Southwestern cooking will be taught. New Mexican traditional dishes such as salsas, enchiladas, chiles rellenos, carne adovada, tacos, burritos, huevos rancheros and more will be included. Tex-Mex favorites such as chili con carne, tamale pie and enchilada casserole will be prepared.

Some of the famous Mexican regional dishes that will be taught are chiles en nogada, various moles, Mexican salsas, chilaquiles and sopa de tortilla. The fundamental differences in Mexican and Southwestern cooking will be shared.

Another feature of the course is that Quick Cooking with Chiles is featured in five classes. All of these dishes can be prepared in 20 minutes or less with 5 ingredients or less. And, as the finale, the enrollees will be developing their own chile-laden recipes.

Each of the 40 lectures will be interactive and feature a subject such as “Ways to Serve Chili”, which will include the home cooking assignment for that lesson and review many innovative as well as popular ways to serve chili.

Where appropriate there will be the option to play video material of the topic at hand.

Those taking the course will never be healthier, once they learn how chiles help make their entire body healthier. In fact, the Ancient Chinese up until the mid 20th century reserved chiles as a pharmaceutical, as they were too precious to waste on the healthy!

This course is very professionally developed by Jane Butel with the assistance of staff from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada Learning Center where the course is hosted.

Those registering will have access to chat rooms, blogs, interfacing with Jane herself and her staff; as well as reference information, trade associations available for joining and more.
