Review: Big Dawg Fire Department – Chipotle Dip Mix
One of the items that I picked up at the Fiery Foods show was a chile grill. After seeing them show after show, I finally picked one up and have already put it to good use. When I got home, I lined up all my goodies on the bar and started doing a mental inventory of all the items and trying to figure out what I can use with each other. The Besito Caliente mix is already gone (it rocked and I’ll be ordering more soon) and when I was thinking about using the grill, I remembered that I had a packet of Big Dawg’s Seasoning to put to good use.
Ingredients: chipotle flakes, garlic powder, paprika, sea salt, MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), and other spices.
The little zip lock baggies come with instructions on how to mix the seasonings, but it’s pretty simple – 2 packages of cream cheese and a package of seasoning, mix and refrigerate for a few hours.
The making of the stuffed peppers is also simple – remove the tops of the peppers and use an apple corer to remove the seed (be careful not to puncture the sides of the peppers). Using a toothpick, put a small hole in the bottom of each pepper and then fill with the cream cheese mixture (but not to the top of the pepper). Leave about 1/2 inch of space so that the filling can expand. Top each pepper with 1/4 a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
