Saturday Blog: Manly MENu, Gasparilla Edition

Everyone has that one signature dish that they are asked to bring to the party.  For me it is the simple Rotel concoction that makes everyone one step closer to Cardiac Infarction. With a twist.

 

For today's recipe you will need to hit the super market and start buying everything spicy.....

Not really.  The secret here is FRESH! 

FRESH Jalapenos
FRESH Celery
FRESH Garlic
FRESH Parsley
FRESH meat

Velveeta Forget the Cheddar...Veveeta is better....whatever, but it melts!!!!!!!!!

 

OK, grab two cans of ROTEL. I like the original, but it is your dish, so have fun and try a few. 

Grab a six-pack of beer.  I have had the best luck with Heineken and tend to stick with that.  Open a beer and pour about half into the crock pot.  Put it on high, place the cover on and I guess....if you must, drink the other half.

 

Now I mentioned fresh. 
Parsley, Garlic, Jalapenos and Celery.  As much or as little as you wish......I always use three medium Jalapenos, a bag of celery, and garlic and parsley to your liking.

Chop the Jalapenos into thin slices and spread them into the warming beer.  Open the two cans of rotel and pour over the beer and japs mixture. 

Next add the chopped celery and spices and cover. 

Begin browning what ever meat you like.  I have tried everything and the best two (depending on the target audience) are venison and of course Extra lean ground beef. 
(Turkey and sausage are delicious as well)

I will also sometimes add cube steak for flavor, but it does not add to the consistency and texture.

Open the crock-pot and stir your mixture briefly and savor the beginnings of a fantastic aroma.  If no-one is looking, taste the spoon.....you know you want to.

As the meet continues to brown, begin cubing the velveeta into 1/4 inch cubes and dropping them into the now warm beer / rotel mix.  Add a little more beer as necessary but not to much. 

This should take you about as long as the meat takes to brown on a low heat.  Strain the beef and place it atop the melting cheese and cover.

Now the important part.....sit on the couch and wait.  This entire process takes about two hours.  Monitor so that it does not burn and keep the crock-pot on a medium setting, but you should have a melty, cheezy, delicious treat to take to you party.  Don't forget the chips.

Oh, cleaning the crockpot is a pain....leave it at the party, you can pick it up next week......!!!!!!!!  LOL

Gary - looks terrific, I will try it out. Also, you can get those crock pot cooking bags, although I find my crock pot to be pretty easy to clean, but then, I haven't melted cheese in it.

If you clean the pot right away, it isn't an issue, but I like the joke of leaving it behind....you know you'll get it back sparkling....
