Place all ingredients except corn chips and garnishes into a pot and cook over medium heat until cheese is well incorporated and beans have softened. Then add finely crushed corn chips and let simmer for 10 minutes to thicken. Spoon into bowls, garnish and serve—or let guests select their own garnishes. Note: This recipe does well in a crock pot.
Never-fail Grilled Hot Wings
This is our “go to” recipe when we get a craving for hot wings on the road. They’re so easy—and always a hit with guests.
3 lbs. chicken wing drummettes (the meaty portion of the wing)
One 16-oz. bottle of Wishbone Italian salad dressing
One 12-oz. bottle of Frank’s Red Hot sauce
1 small bottle of a habanero hot sauce (optional, for extra heat)
Fresh jalepeños, sliced in half, lengthwise
Dipping sauce: Ranch or blue cheese dressing
Place all ingredients except dipping sauce into an extra-large zip-lock bag. Seal and mix well. Let drummettes marinate for several days—three is perfect. When ready to grill, drain marinade and place drummettes and peppers on a tray and grill until cooked through. Serve with dipping sauce.
