The unofficial start of the summer season is this weekend, and what a better way to kick it off than with a barbecue.
So fire up the grill, make some yummy appetizers, mix a batch of lemonade and invite over family and friends this Memorial Day weekend.
Dolores Chili Brick is a perfect match for many barbecue and backyard picnic items such as chili dip, burgers, hot dogs, nachos, or a straight bowl of “red.”
For chili dip, stir softened cream cheese into a pan of Dolores Chili Brick; continue stirring over heat until cream cheese is thoroughly melted and mixed with chili. Serve with Fritos, tortilla chips or crackers.
A Dolores Chili burger is a mouth-watering favorite. Season a quarter or half-pound patty and grill it to preference. Toast the flat side of the hamburger bun and top it off with Dolores Chili, diced onions and a slice of cheese.
For a Dolores dog, grill your favorite beef or polish hot dog, lightly toast the bun and top it off with Dolores Chili, onions and shredded cheddar.
Heat some nacho cheese on the stove or crock-pot; prepare one to two Dolores Chili Bricks, depending on the amount of guests, and then serve both over tortilla chips.
For the straight bowl of “red,” personal preference wins. Prepare some chopped onions, sour cream and shredded cheddar and let guests decide how to decorate their bowl.
Dolores Chili is sold in major grocery chains such as Food 4 Less, Ralphs, Albertson’s, Start Brothers, Smart & Final, and countless independent stores. The famous chili is also a hot item at Philippe The Original, in Downtown L.A. and is sold in various fast food restaurants and hot dog and hamburger stands across Southern California.
The all-beef Chili Bricks are also sold on-line at www.DoloresChili.com.
