Is your favorite football team still playing? This year, we didn't even have a shot. That said, we're still watching most of the playoff games and we will certainly be tuning in to watch the Big Game!
We've been sharing a few fun recipes that are perfect for your Game Day menu and I'm excited to share another one that's made in the slow cooker! I love being able to toss everything in and not have to worry about it.
I decided to use the El Yucateco Black Label Reserve Hot Sauce for our Spicy Sausage and Bean Stew. This sauce is the newest in the line and is best used when cooking. Created from fire roasted habanero peppers, this rich smoky sauce stands out from all others with it's unique flavor and appearance. I think it adds the perfect amount of heat to hearty stews like ours or chili.
- 12 oz smoked sausage, sliced
- 2 bell peppers, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 small zucchini, chopped
- 1 cup carrots, chopped
- 3 (15 oz) cans Great Northern white beans
- 1 (28 oz) jar crushed tomatoes
- ½ cup chicken broth
- 2 Tbsp El Yucateco Black Label Reserve Hot Sauce
- In a large skillet on medium-high, cook sausage until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
- Combine cooked sausage and all ingredients in a slow cooker.
- Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or 8 hours on low.
- Serve with crusty bread.
I love a little extra kick, so the El Yucateco Hot Sauce is perfect for us! When I picked up supplies at Walmart, I grabbed the Red Hot Sauce and the Black Label Reserve Hot Sauce. I knew I was going to use the Black Label Reserve for the stew while it was cooking, but figured if people wanted even more, they could add their own of whichever variety they like.
Did you know that El Yucateco has a Gear Shop? The El Yucateco gear store offers men and women's apparel including board shorts for the summer, hoodies for the winter and even embroidered shirts for a casual night out. We snagged a couple of shirts that are perfect for Game Day!
I may not be wearing my team jersey (since you know, they're not playing this year), but I can wear this shirt from El Yucateco and still be sporting a football(ish) shirt. I love the sentiment of “sometimes, the best part of game day isn't the game” because it fits perfect with us this year!
We'll be watching the game, but not necessarily cheering on a team. For us this year, the best part of Game Day will be about the food we'll be eating and the family we'll be sharing it with.
What are some of your favorite Game Day foods to add a little kick to?
