Once in a blue moon, my out-of-the-box thinking turns into a reward. And the folks at Stubb’s® regularly lead me to that creative corner.
Now, before you start thinking this is one of those sponsored posts, just stop. Not that I don’t accept sponsorships from purveyors of products that I actually love, but my relationship with Stubb’s® is different. And pretty cool, really. They occasionally send me ingredients with a simple request: Try it and tell us what you think.
And that’s it.
I’m not sure whether I’m partial to Stubb’s® products because I can pronounce everything on the labels, or simply because it’s a Texas-based company that speaks to my taste buds in a very personal way. But I can tell you with my Scout sign raised that I was buying and cooking with Stubb’s® long before we hooked up.
But my first experience with the Stubb’s® Chili Fixins’ happened just recently, and it resulted in this culinary epiphany.
That deep-hued creamy Chili con Queso that you’re now salivating over — just three ingredients. Well, technically, there are a lot more when one considers all of the herbs and spices in Stubb’s® Chili Fixins’. Either way, it’s uber deep in flavor
Just look for this bag at your local grocer. If they don’t have it, ask for it, or order it online. Hell, order two or three, because this little bag also makes a nifty Texas-style chili (add beans if you choose).
