Here in Texas, we don't cook with BBQ sauce, but we love it on the side to spoon over our brisket, fajitas, chicken, etc and it has to have a little kick. I've been told over and over again that this is the best BBQ sauce they've ever had and I ought to bottle it. I love to cook, but I don't want to do it for a living--so enjoy it for free.
Here it is folks! First time ever in print! My Mom's famous hot chocolate sauce for ice cream sundaes. These are ingredients you more than likely always have on hand. Try this once and you will never buy store bought sauce again!
Another great mix that makes life easier (see also "my" Hot Mexican Rub recipe #132796). I included this as part of a gift basket for my friend and of course I had to try it before giving it away. Too bad I din't read the whole recipe before making it. When not only the mix but also the dip was finished, I realised it should go in the fridge for two hours or so. I couldn't wait that long and ate it immediately. Loved it and prepared a second batch. This time I had some leftovers and I put it in the fridge. The next day it tasted even better! Yes, chilling does improve the dip! As I wanted to prepare the dip just for myself, I mixed 2 tablespoons sour cream with 2 tabelspoons low fat mayonnaise and 2 teaspoons Mexican Fiesta Dip Mix. I am considering to prepare the next batch without the dry herbs but add fresh herbs to the mix when preparing the dip. I love fresh herbs and I grow so many on my balcony. When typing this recipe I realised that I forgot to add the salt into my mix. I didn't even miss it! That's why I wrote optional next to the salt. Serve this dip with tortilla chips or fresh vegetables.
This versatile Southwestern –Style Sauce, with its zesty blend of black peppercorns and Creole mustard is a perfect match for beef tenderloin. Serve with Tarragon Green Beans and Jalapeno Jack Polenta for a perfect meal.
This barbecue sauce has good bbq flavor with a Tex-Mex kick. I clipped the recipe from a Hellman's Mayonnaise jar several years ago. Although it tastes good when first mixed together, it tastes even better if it has had time to set for a little while so the flavors have time to blend.
This salsa is the compilation of dozens of salsa recipes that I have read. This salsa is not too hot, not too sweet, not too mild. The depth of flavor and easy prep will make this a winner for your next party or Tex-Mex night.
This is Top Secret's version of Heinz's Premium Chili Sauce. I use it all the time and usually have to run to the store to buy it for a recipe. I am posting this so I won't have to run to the store all the time.
Per Todd Wilbur: you can make this into Heinz Cocktail Sauce by stirring in 2 teaspoons of prepared horseradish when the sauce has cooled.
We've been using this recipe for years over sirloin steak. Found this recipe about 20 years ago in one of those paperback grocery store check-out lines recipe books - best $1.50 I've ever spent (I told you it's was about 20 years ago!) Very good - you'll love the way it jazzes up steak.
I literally live on this in the summer when tomatoes are garden-ripe! I prefer this to cooked salsa, and I really load up on the cilantro. Of course, you can adjust the heat and any other ingredient as you wish, but this is the basic recipe. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
This is so tasty I could eat it by the spoonful. The recipe comes from my Kraft What's Cooking Magazine. If at all possible use homemade sundried tomatoes (I used Mirj's recipe #14681 - awesome!), they add so much more flavour.
