Be a Hottie this weekend….

Here are four recipes that will keep you warm this weekend. I’ve included a snack, a dip, a soup, and a drink. All recipes will make plenty so maybe you’ll want to invite some folks over and have some fun.

FIRE CRACKERS (NO OVEN NEEDED)

4 sleeves of unsalted saltine crackers

1- 1 oz pkg ranch dressing mix

2 tbsp of crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 tsp garlic powder

line crackers on end like dominos in an air tight container

stir all ingredients together and pour over crackers

every 5 minutes for 20 minutes flip the container..gently

should last about a week in ziplock

 

BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP

2 8oz pkgs of cream cheese

1 c. bleu cheese dressing

1 c. buffalo hot wing sauce

2 c. shredded sharp cheese

2 c. cubed or shredded chicken (I use rotisserie from the deli) (I bet the turkey you frz at Thanksgiving would work)

mix the all ingredient, add chicken last

bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. serve with a sturdy cracker or my favorite, toasted bagguette

 

SPICY CHICKEN CORN CHOWDER

1/4 c butter

large onion

1/2 red bell pepper

1 jalapeno seeded and chopped (I will skip this one)

1/4 c flour

32 oz of chicken broth (used store bought unless you got the time)

2 med potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces (or left over baked potatoes OR use frozen hash browns)

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

meat from one chicken (again rotisserie to the rescue)

1-2 c of corn of your choice;  frozen, canned, white, yellow, creamed

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 heavy cream (keep the rest for your coffee)

Fry the onion, pepper, and japapeno in the butter in one large pot, once they get soft , sprinkle in the flour this it gets pasty, slowly add the chicken stock, it will get nice and smooth as you whisk, add potatoes, cook till they are soft. then add Worcestershire, chicken meat (turkey would work) crushed red pepper flakes, salt, and heavy cream. This is the kind of soup that will taste better the longer it sits.

 

NOW THAT’S SPICY HOT CHOCOLATE

1 c. milk (whole, almond, soy…whatever you want)

¼ c. dark chocolate chips (dark works best with spicy)

2 tbsp coco powder (I love Hersheys, tried others)

2 tbsp maple syrup (the real deal if you have it, if not Log Cabin will do)

½ tsp vanille extract

¼ tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper

1/8 tsp salt

Melt choc in the milk, stir a lot, but not fast till melted together. Add the rest and mix well. If you want a frothy drink, whirl it in the blender.
