sweet + meat = Texas Sundae
End the game with my own creation called the Texas Sundae! My Texan friends told me that this is what a New Yorker would think Texans would eat… I am confident it will take off!
I’ve topped off a crispy fried ice cream balls with gourmet toppings – sautéed bananas, chili chocolate sauce, and are you ready for it… Chocolate Covered Bacon Bits! What is more Texan than to eat meat at every meal…? To be really fun & creative – serve this in a mini plastic cowboy hat!
Don’t freak out… this is so easy to make. Melt chocolate, dip crispy fried bacon in it then use the melted chocolate to make the sauce by adding cream, a pat of butter and a dash of chili powder. Sauté some bananas in butter and brown sugar and put it all together with corn chips crusted vanilla ice cream balls – DONE!

• 1 2/3 cups dark chocolate, roughly chopped (not baking chocolate, 8 oz)
• 1 cup heavy cream

Combine chocolate, cream, butter and chili pepper in a heavy sauce pan.
2.Cook over very low heat until all the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
3.Serve warm or cold.
Can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks and gently reheated.
With Super Bowl Sunday on its way, a one-pot meal is ideal to get you out of the kitchen and back in the game. When game-day rolls around, the last thing you’ll want to do is spend all your time slaving over a meal, while family and friends huddle around the TV enjoying the game.
One of my signature one-pot meals is Twice Drunk Chili – a game-day favorite of my family. Made with Mexican ale and a dash (…or ten) of my secret ingredient Thai Chili-Infused Tequila, you know where it gets its colorful name! There is a little prep time needed outside of tenderizing the beef in a beer marinade and chopping the vegetables.
