We interrupt my regularly scheduled Daily Eats posts to tell you all about the BEER FEST that went on today!
The AWESOME folks over at New Belgium partnered with the Foodbuzz Tastemakers and asked us to create a Recipe or a Food Pairing using their Beers. I figured why not give them BOTH recipes using their BEER and recipes to DRINK their beer with ~ Are you all ready for it……
I know, I am such a DORK, but, it really is the BEST of both worlds!
You all may recognize New Belgium for their Fat Tire, but, did you know that they actually make several varieties of beer?
BEER “MATES” (like, Grill Mates!)
I pulled out all the stops……The SLOW COOKER WAS USED……
To make some Phenomenal Slow Cooked Chipotle Beer Baked Beans!
Sauces were made……
Honey Chipotle BEER BBQ Sauce!
So there would be less dishes by GRILLING
There was BAKING with BEER…..
involving SUPER DELICOUS ingredients!
Chipotle Cheddar BEER Corn Bread Muffins!
These might just be the BEST MUFFINS I’ve ever made (& they are only 4 points+ each!!!)
I ventured out by trying new cooking techniques…..
That involved swirling sauces….soaking and grilling (no dishes!) corn husks!
Buttery Chili Lime BEER Grilled Corn
Colorful side salads were made……
To cool the HEAT from using an entire can of Chipotles in Adobo Sauce….
I even made sure to include BEER in dessert!
Peach BEER-Berry Cobbler
Did I mention every single recipe is Weight Watcher friendly and that Fat Tire is the perfect thing to wash down all that “Beer-BBQ”?!
The BEST part, I STILL have BEER left
Stay tuned for all of the recipes for everything you see above. I will be posting each one individually with a recap at the end with links of all the recipes so you can host your own Beer-BBQ.
