With just a few simple ingredients, most of which you’ve probably already got on your pantry shelves, you can create an absolutely delicious dip which your football-loving family and friends will LOVE!
There are many versions of this recipe, most of them similar to each other, but we think ours, with the addition of our mystery ingredient*, is the best. (Our second favorite is Cooking With Anne’s Black Bean and Corn Salsa. Delicious, Anne!)
Here’s how to make our version:
1 15oz can black beans (rinsed or not – your call)
1 15oz can yellow corn (thoroughly drained)
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes
1 cup chunky salsa (medium or hot)
1 large onion, diced
1 teaspoon cilantro
*1 mystery ingredient, revealed below
What to do:
Mix all of the above together in a large bowl. Add the mystery ingredient and blend it in. The mystery ingredient is what makes our version of black bean dip unique – and the best!
You don’t have long to wait for the big football game, you know.
Be sure to add Texas Spicy Wings to your menu; watching football just naturally requires some wings, you know.
Here’s how to make ours. They’re delicious.
Chicken wings – about three pounds (adjust for your crew)
2 cups Apple Cherry Habanero Rib Candy
1 2-oz jar Apple Habanero pepper jelly
1/2 2-oz jar Cherry Jalapeno pepper jelly
1/4 pound tart cherries, seeded and quartered
4 tart apples (I use Granny Smith) peeled and cubed
Dash of chili powder
What to do:
Spread the chicken wings in a large deep baking pan.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together all the other ingredients. Your sauce will be lumpy.
Pour the mixture over the wings and make sure it covers all the meat. Use a pastry brush if you need to.
Bake in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes, or when the wings are tender.
Serve with toothpicks. And be ready to make another batch. These wings are absolutely DELICIOUS.
You can make these in your crockpot, too. Just dump everything in, set it to “low” and forget about it for about 6 hours.
Be sure you have plenty of toothpicks; cocktail sausages are more fun to eat when people can just spear them.
This recipe can be made in the oven or in your crockpot. Slow cooker dishes are so convenient, and I always make this recipe in my crockpot, but if you want to use your oven, that works just fine, too.
>2 packages of cocktail sausages (I usually toss a packages of tiny hot dogs in with the sausages)
1 bottle of Craig’s BBQ Sauce
2 tablespoons apricot jam
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon allspice
dash black pepper
What to do:
Put the barbecue sauce and apricot jam in a medium mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly. I use a wisk.
Add all the other ingredients, and pour over the sausages.
Turn your crockpot to “low,” and let everything cook for about six hours. (1 hour in a 350-degree oven)
If your crockpot has a lift-out crock, just remove it and place it on the coffee table in front of your football fans. Again, make sure there’s a box of toothpicks handy. Or forks, if you want to be civilized. Put a pot holder under the crock (or casserole dish) to protect your table.
Spicy Texas Cocktail Sausages are really, really good, plus, they’ll fill your whole house with awesome aroma. You have no idea until you do it, how good your house will smell.
You can also use this sauce for meatballs. Or as a condiment for sandwiches. Craig’s BBQ Sauce is really versatile.
However, there’s just something about the SuperBowl that requires BBQ sauce, isn’t there. Well, we think so!
