Pulled Pork + Pineapple = Pals

We already know that Cherry ‘Chups and pulled pork go together like peas and carrots, thanks to our Cherry Chipotle Pork recipe. But after this session of smokin’ butts (of the pig variety), we let our Spicy Pineapple flavor join the party and boy, did it bring its A game.

The Cherry ‘Slaw Dog

Putting ketchup on hot dogs might be a contentious topic for some, but it’s not for us. The answer is always “YES” or more importantly, “WHICH FLAVOR?”

Today’s delicious meat sandwich features our cherry flavor atop an Italian sausage and a mound of homemade coleslaw, diced jalapeños, and crispy fried onions. For this sort of monster ‘dog, we recommend a split-top bun. It’s the best vehicle for the job.

Grilling season, never end.

It Takes Two to Totcho!

What’s better than a bowl of tots or a plate of nachos? That would be a massive serving of both, put together in a fusion of food that is not only delicious to eat but fun to say: TOTCHOS!

This mountain of merriment includes crispy tater tots (duh), pulled pork, jalapeños, tomatoes and a delicious chipotle cheese sauce. Topped with cherry and spicy pineapple ‘Chups and a dollop of sour cream, it’s an appetizer fit for a crew of hungry hippos.

Next time you throw a party, don’t be boring and serve a plain ol’ plate of nachos. Be cool, be memorable, be revolutionary: give your guests the gift of TOTCHOS.

A Meal Fit for a Father

It’s no secret that grilling duties often fall on dad, who usually digs the opportunity to put his food to the flames. But this weekend, why not grab the reigns and show him that after years of watching the master, you’ve picked up on his penchant for cooking up a perfect protein?

This special Father’s Day Steak Frites recipe is a flavorful flat iron steak, grilled to perfection, slopped with butter, and served with thick, Russet potato frites. But the side of Plum ‘Chups steak sauce might be the surprise star of the show, with so many layers of flavor including brown sugar, raisins, ginger, Worcestershire and dijon mustard, just to name a few ingredients.

Deliciousness aside, as with any well thought-out dish, the best outcome is one that is shared around a table with family, encouraging stories to be told and laughter to be had.

Happy Father’s Day to our favorite OGs–original grillsters!

When Italy Meets Blueberry

panzanella2

Panzanella! It’s one of those words that you can’t help but pronounce in a sing-song Italian accent—Pan-ZA-nella! It’s certainly a fitting affliction, as the flavors make for a lyrical dining experience.

As always, we bring our own spin to this satisfying summer dish, which translates to “bread salad” in English. A healthful blend of juicy tomatoes, zucchini, baby balls of mozzarella, sweet yellow peppers, and olive oil-soaked baguette is all chopped, tossed, and topped with basil and a balsamic Blueberry ‘Chups glaze. Bello!

Serve this dish with a glass of summer rosé or sweet sangria and instantly find yourself transported to the ancient and fruitful land of Italia.
