Hey guys,

I have just been informed I an attending a Mexican themed super bowl party and am supposed to bring something. Everyone is expecting something off the egg and I don't have the time to come up with something to cook. I was wondering if any of you had any ideas and recipes. Thanks in advance.

    Smoked Pork Chili Verde, made extra thick. Served with some small flour tortillas and sour cream.
  • ABT's are always a crowd pleaser.

    Frijoles a la charra...make it into a dip for some Tostito scoops.
  • When Rick Bayless was on Top Chef Masters, he kept a blog with his comments about the show. He also posted a few recipes. I couldn't find the blog anymore, but the recipe I was thinking of when I read your post is now on the Bravo website: queso fundido burgers

    What Bacchus said. That sounds delicious and will hold well for serving at a later time. What time is the party? :woohoo:

    Try cooking this or other chili in advance, reheats nicely, just add rice.

    2 Pints Chicken Broth
    2-3 Pints Salsa Fresca
    4 Tbs. Red Tomato Paste`
    2-3 Whole Jalapeños, Seeds & Veins Removed, Finely Diced, You decide How Hot!
    3 Tbs. Red Pepper, Crushed
    6 Tbs Green Chili Powder,
    2-3 Tbs. Sugar
    2 Tbs. Cumin
    Salt/Pepper to taste

    1 Cut the pork into 1 inch pieces, Saute in a Dutch oven to render grease and partially cook. Drain. Cook Onions in a little olive oil until start to wilt. Add pork back into pot and then the rest of the ingredients.
    2 Bring to boil and then simmer. Place lid on pot and cook 1-1 1/2 hours. Remove lid toward end and reduce if too much liquid. Add beer or chicken broth if to thick.
    3 Serve with fresh hot tortillas and/or rice.
    4 Works well with leftover turkey or chicken also. Freezes very well!
    5 This can also be done on the BGE, 9 QT Dutch Oven, Indirect, Plate Setter leg up, something to lift the DO off the plate setter 1/2 inch or so, 350F, no top on DO, light smoke couple of hours. Keep an eye on it so it does not dry out.

    2009/08/21--Richard Fl--Cooked 2 8 1/2 lbs pork butt 350F for 3 hours. Used them for the Florida Mini Fest. Made 3 gallons chili and took to party and reheated in 9 qt DO.
  • I was kinda thinking about trying that. Thanks everyone.
  • If you don't have time to cook, this is super quick and very good.

    Chile con queso dip:

    Velveeta cheese
    Rotel's Tomatos & Green chiles

    Melt them together. If you want to get fancy, throw in some cooked hamburger meat.

    Take tostada chips with you.

    Dripping Springs, Texas.
    Just west of Austintatious

  • One thing that is very filling and very good is Puerco Pibil. I think I've talked myself into what I bringing to the superbowl.
