Who is ready for tailgating? One of our top of the list activities for fall is football and tailgating. Of course, my favorite part of tailgating is coming up with fun and new recipes. We have recently fallen in love with Mrs. Renfro’s salsa and sauces. We tried them over the summer and love them. It’s the best salsa we have ever had so when I sat down to try to figure out some tailgating recipes that would be fun for fall I wanted to make a couple using Mrs. Renfro’s salsa. Salsa just screams tailgating and football to me so it made sense. I grabbed some Pumpkin Salsa & Craft Beer Salsa and got to work!
Pumpkin Salsa Mexican Chili:
- 1 Jar Mrs. Renfro’s Pumpkin Salsa
- 1 Pound Hamburger
- 1 Medium Onion
- 1 Medium Green Pepper
- 1 14.5 Oz Can Diced Tomatoes
- 1 28oz Can Tomato Sauce
- 1 14.5 Oz Can Black Beans (drained)
- 1 14.5 Oz Can Dark Red Kidney Beans (drained)
- 1 cup Beef Broth
- 1 packet Chili Seasoning
- 1 Packet Taco Seasoning
- Saute the onion and green pepper until tender.
- Add the hamburger and brown.
- Pour all of the ingredients into the slow cooker and mix together.
- Cook on high for 5 hours.
You can set out some toppings like cheese, crackers, chives, sour cream, whatever you love in chili.
Craft Beer Salsa Queso:
1 Jar of Mrs. Renfro’s Craft Beer Salsa
1 Stick of Butter
3-4 Tbs. Flour
2 cups Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
1 14.5 oz Can of Cheddar cheese Soup
1 8oz Package of Cream Cheese
Milk (as needed)
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan until completely melted.
Add flour and mix with butter until it becomes thick (about 2-3 minutes) let it cook a little till the roux turns a brownish color.
Add Soup and stir until thickens and roux mixes in (about 5 minutes)
Add cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Stir in a figure 8 motion constantly until melted.
Add in salsa and stir to combine.
If the mixture is too thick add some milk to thin out (add 1-2 Tbs. at a time until desired thickness is achieved).
Serve with some chips of your choice for the perfect queso.
