1 can refried beans
1 bag of sliced cheese
1 20 oz jar of sourcream
1 jar of pace picante - HOT preferabbly

Take the can of refried beans and warm them up on the stove .

Get a large flat bowl and spread the beans on the bottom .
Now add the pace picante sauce over the beans .
Next spread the sour cream over the hot sauce .
And finally sprinkle the cheese on the top .

Just a warning , much like a popular chip commercial says - you cant eat just one !!! Enjoy !!

Chili Cheese Dip

1 large can of Hormel Chili with beans
2 lbs of Valveeta cheese
1 lb of Philly Cream Cheese
1 lb of ground beef
1 small jar of Pace Picate sauce

Cook and drain ground beef
add hormel chili and heat
when hot add cheese cut into chucks so it will melt easier stir accasionally and continue untill all the chesse is smooth and melted now stir in the Picate sauce.
Remove from heat and serve warm.

Best served with ample supplies of cold beer and tosita's scoop nacho chips...Warning friends may never want to leave after the game this stuff is addictive also this batch is enough usually for 4 parties so dont sweat it can be frozen and microwaved for next weeks game.

I do not know about anyone else but I am tired of the Buffalo Wings craze. I starting my own with an old standard Beer Battered Wings.

Mix flour and beer with lots of pepper and deep fry. Then salt while draining. I could eat these all day everyday.

jalapeno cheese dip..

1 can chedder cheese soup(condensed)
2 or more chopped jalapenos peppers
1 package of diced swiss cheese

heat chedder soup & peppers on a slow flame untill hot (dont add any water to soup)add diced swiss do not boil dont stir just fold it a few times ya dont want the swiss to mix to much .. what you get is a thick artery clogging dip for toasted bread or tortilla chips

Here's an easy one with only two ingrediants. Never any left.

Creamy Chili Dip

Mix together over medium heat one can of Hormel "no bean" chili and one regular size brick of Philly Cream Cheese. Stir until heated to keep from burning. You can add jalepenos or hot sauce to tast if you like. Very simple and very good.

10-05-2004, 10:00 PM
i put a big shake of MCCormick creole seasoning yum yum

Your right Wreckerman, I use those McCormick seasonings ALL the time. They are all great. They really flavour up any recipe.

I went to the local poultry slaughter house a few weeks ago and got a 50lb case of fresh frozen turkey wings. I dipped them in a wash made of two eggs to one cup of milk and a quarter cup of Werchestshire sauce and then dusted them with a mixture of flour, corn meal, white pepper a little salt, garlic powder and cayane pepper, then deep fried them. The guys at the club went threw all 50lbs in about a half hour.

The same recipe and process is AWSOME for home made onion rings as well.

11-07-2004, 06:13 PM
This one's always been a hit when I make them.

2 pkgs. Philly cream cheese
onion-small dice
red bell pepper-small dice
1 pkg. frozen chopped spinich-thawed, drained well, and chopped again
cajun seasoning
prosciutto ham - I like using this because it has a great flavor but you can use some other type of deli ham.
10" flour tortilla wraps

Mix up the cream cheese, chopped spinich, and cajun seasoning in a bowl. Add just a little seasoning at a time and taste. Some of that stuff can be overpowering so use your best judgement.

Spread the mixture on one of the tortillas almost to the edge. Take the diced onion and red bell and sprinkle on top of the cheese mix. Then place the meat on top of that and press down slightly just to set the onion and pepper into the cheese. Roll the wrap up from one end and wrap in wax paper. Repeat until the mixture is gone. Put the wraps in the fridge for a couple hours then remove and slice into pieces 1/2" to 1" thick.

moms home made meatballs

3 lbs lean ground meat
3 cups italian flavored bread crumbs
2 eggs
1/2 cup parsley
one large onion finely chopped

mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. mixture should be firm.
if soft add more breadcrumbs/ if hard add more milk.
roll into 1and1/2inch balls
preheat veg oil to about 200degrees. Fry for roughly 5 min
easiest way to tell they are done is to split one open. should be moist inside but not pink. serve with bread and sourcream
can also make pasta sauce with them, just don't fry as long

02-26-2005, 01:17 PM
sounds good to me , well have to give it a try B)

05-23-2005, 05:45 PM
Was at a Christmas party last year and saw these done with scallops and
they were good...so I thought, why not do 'em with venison? GOOD CALL!

Take a venison flank steak or other "not so prime" cut of your venison stash. No need to use your good tenderloin or sirloin cuts here.

Cut the venison into small 1 inch (bite size) chunks.

Take a pond of good sliced bacon and cut into 3 inch slices.

Wrap the venison chunks with the bacon slices and pierce them with a toothpick to keep them wrapped.

Drop them in a pan/pot of hot cooking oil. Usually done in 5 minutes or so.
Scoop them out and lay 'em on a few paper towels.

Betcha can't eat just 10! :D

Good Grief !! I can hear arteries closing all the way in NY

Cut up whatever vegetables you like into large pieces. Drizzle them with good olive oil. Grill for about 10 -15 minutes. In the mean time mix: Greek plain yogurt ( or regular plain yogurt that you have strained for a couple of hours) , really good pesto, chopped garlic , salt ( kosher) and a little bit of lemon juice.
When the veggies are done, drizzle the yogurt sauce on top.
Very healthy and extremely tasty

Ok, he's out of town, I am bored. Here is his recipe for fried cheese:

Chorizo sausage: 1
1/2 to 1 lb of cheddar cheese, shredded
minced onion
as much garlic as you want (use fresh, it tastes better)

Valkyrie's salsa fresca

saute the chorizo in a CAST IRON Skillet until well cooked.
Toss in the minced onion and garlic and saute until the onion is translucent.
pull off the stove and remove the chorizo/onion/garlic mixture, leaving the oil from the chorizo
Pack in the cheese to the top lip of the skillet
Put the chorizo/onion/garlic mixture back on top of the cheese in the middle


Put this puppy on the grill for about 20 minutes or in a hot oven for about 25-30 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

TFB likes it with tortilla chips. I love it with veggies: celery, carrot sticks and certain kinds of lettuce. Also with artichoke leaves. It always disappears quickly, so have extra cheese and chorizo on hand for a second go round.

Great game food!

And yes, I noted I did not tell you the recipe for my salsa fresca. Hehehehe.

11-19-2006, 04:43 PM

1 cup salad oil
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar

Combine and bring to a boil, set aside to cool.

1 can Shoe Peg Corn
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Black Beans
1 can Black eyed Peas
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green pepper, finely chopped
3 ribs-celery, finely chopped
1 small jar pimento

Drain beans well

Combine all ingredients and add to cooled dressing.
Refrigerate overnight.

Serve with Frito Scoops or Tostitos Scoops

5 pkgs. chicken wings (8 wings per
pack) (this makes 80 pieces of the final recipe)
2/3 c. soy sauce
2 inch piece of FRESH ginger root
(more or less)
4 to 5 cloves garlic (more or less)
1 to 2 tbsp. ground black pepper
(more or less)
1 to 2 tbsp. hot red pepper flakes
(more or less)
2 eggs
1/3 c. sesame seeds
2 c. bread crumbs (preferably the
seasoned kind)
1 stick butter, melted
Cut each wing into 3 pieces. Discard (or save for soup) the smallest tip end. Place remaining pieces in a large bowl. Mix soy sauce, ginger, garlic and peppers in a blender until ginger pieces are very small. Add eggs and process a bit longer (5 to 10 seconds). Pour over chicken, stir and cover. Stir often and marinate for at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. For this amount of chicken, it's best to use 2 large pans with 2 inch sides. Grease pans or spray with Pam. Mix bread crumbs and sesame seeds. Coat chicken pieces with bread- sesame mixture. Place in pans. Pieces can be close to each other, but not on top of each other. Drizzle melted butter over the top, just a little on each piece will do. Bake for 40 to 90 minutes or until tops and bottoms are well browned. Eat hot or cold. Serve with Ranch or Blue cheese dressing.
