Another Fast Party Recipe - Red Beans and Rice Dip

I can't take credit for this, since I used it right off the back of the box. It was actually much better than I expected, and lots of people asked for the "secret recipe!"

Prepare 1 box of Zatarain's Red Beans and Rice according to the package directions. Add 1 c. salsa and 1 T. Jalapenos (I used canned). Grind in a blender (or food processor) until smooth. I actually left it a little more "textured" than smooth.

Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.

Sounds funky, but it's great hot or cold!


  1. so when is the party? My invitation must have gotten lost in the mail. :)

  2. Whenever you're ready to come to ATL, kind sir! This past weekend was "Chili, Chips and Cheap Wine"... definitely not high style entertaining, but then again, I have a white tree now.....

  3. Making me hungry at 9:30am in the morning. Need to throw in a little sausage and we have breakfast!

  4. Tim, about that white tree.....I think it's fabulous! The more Christmas trees, the better. I have a Charlie Brown-type tree in my little conservatory that has garden-themed ornaments on it. Isn't Christmas great??? And are those topiary gift boxes on the steps of the Big House?
