Thirteenorth Grille will host its monthly Charity Guest Chef Night on Feb. 26 with a spicy New Mexico dish on the menu to benefit at-risk kids in Arizona.

The menu: New Mexico red chile enchiladas, pinto beans, Spanish rice, a choice of soup or salad and flan for dessert. Peter Madrid, owner of MadridMedia and a native of New Mexico, will serve as the guest chef.

“I grew up eating red and green chile for pretty much every meal,” Madrid said. “When you live in New Mexico, either one is on the table for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My grandmother, mother, and sisters made the best red chile enchiladas – with a fried egg on top. I am also thrilled that Gabriel’s Angels is the charity of choice. I can’t think of more worthy organization; kids and dogs, that says it all.”

Each year Thirteenorth Grille sponsors the charity event January through October.
“I am excited to have Peter cooking the food that he grew up eating,” said Lawrence Macias, co-owner of Thirteenth Grille. “It’s going to be a great night benefiting a great cause.”

Proceeds will benefit Gabriel’s Angels, which provides healing pet therapy to more than 14,600 abused, neglected and at-risk children in Arizona. The event is scheduled for Sunday, February 26, 2017, from 5 to 9 p.m. at Thirteenorth Grille, 1301 E. Northern Ave. Cost is $22 person; reservations can be made by calling (602) 795-1397.
