You know I love my queso, well I also love Tex Mex in general. I was a HUGE fan of these enchiladas filled with cheesy goodness and topped with meaty goodness. It doesn't get much better than that, does it!?

Recently Tammi over at Momma's Meals reached out to me to be a part of her 'Featured Friday'. The general gist was she tries out one of my recipes, I try out one of hers and we blog about it. Sounded fun to me, especially when I saw she had a pretty solid slow cooker section on her site!
I mean, I like slow cooker recipes, you guys like slow cooker recipes and apparently Tammi does to...sounds like a win, win, win to me.
I decided to try out her
I had to restrain Mr. KMW from drinking this Serrano Peanut sauce. Not physically, but with the death looks that I pull out that are oh so powerful. I definitely didn't blame him for loving it, but I wanted to save some for future dipping.
It was the perfect combo of sweetness from the peanut butter and heat from the Serrano, and all together an awesome dipping sauce. It would work great with chicken skewers, in a stir fry, on veggies, or just go ahead and drink it...just don't tell Mr. KMW I said that's okay though.
I've mentioned this before, but we are absolutely in love with our thermapen. I know, sounds ridiculous to spend that much on a thermometer, but it's worth it, we've been cooking meat perfectly thanks to that little gadget.
Ignore the cell phone pictures, this True Texas Chili was bursting with spicy, delicious flavors and if you are a chili lover like me...you need to try this recipe. It was made by a Texan, so it's clearly legit...filled with chunks of beef...no beans, no tomatoes. Not to go on, but the flavors really came together in this and it was awesome. According to Chef Janie, the key to this chili, is the final step in the recipe, with the brown sugar and vinegar.
I of course love all of the different chili's I've tried at chili club, but I also really like seeing what everyone offers up as garnishes. Along with sour cream, we squeezed in some lime to offset the heat, and had tortillas and fritos as options.
For all of you chili lovers, below is a recap of all of our chili club recipes...from Jersey City to Seattle. I can't wait to keep adding to this list!
Before our move to Seattle, we had to have our final Grove Pointe Chili Club Meeting. And it was another success, the chili was devoured! I'm sad to see Chili club end, but we definitely got some great recipes and had some good times.
Anyone else tempted to dunk their head into this pot of chili?
Amanda was the cook this time around, and she made a true Texas chili with no beans. It had a nice kick, a heck of a lot of beef shoulder, lots garlic cloves and overall great flavors.
Doesn't Amanda have nice chili bowls? She bought them just for Chili Club and they were perfect.
Between Amanda's Beef Chili, Dennis' 8 Alarm Chili and my Beer Chili we have quite the arsenal of chilis to choose from. I know what I'll be making when I need to warm up on a cold and rainy day in Seattle.
Who wants to start a Seattle Chili Club?
