Anyone notice Wahoo! Chili Seasoning, is back? I did. If you didn’t know, it’s a seasonal product. That means it doesn’t stick around the whole year, so I have to make sure I grab one (or two) before it goes off sale for the warm summer months. Don’t let the name fool you into thinking it’s just a chili seasoning. Yes, it makes a mean chili – don’t get me wrong. But it’s so much more than just for chili.
Before I started using Wahoo! Chili Seasoning regularly, I was hesitant, because I thought the flavors would not jive with my kids. They tend to shy away from anything remotely spicy. But Wahoo has a nice subtle heat that mellows out so nicely while baking, roasting or stewing. The first time I tried to pull a fast one on them was with roasted carrots that just had some Wahoo on them with olive oil. They ate them right up and I was so shocked. I mean, I wasn’t shocked because the carrots were delicious – I’ll just put that out there. Usually when I tell my kids to “try something, it’s delicious,” I am met with the stink face. I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about.
A new recipe that I recently made was the Honey Glazed Pork Saltimbocca. Wow. I highly recommend you make this! The flavors of pork with the seasoning are baked up so nicely and heat great for leftovers!
Chili Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders, anyone? You need to make this – like, tonight. Trust me. The sauce you make for the chicken tenders is made with Honey Mustard, mayo and Wahoo! Chili Seasoning. Are you familiar with bang bang sauce? It’s only the most magical sauce ever. You can use it to dip any breaded fish or chicken. Guess what? The dip in this recipe is bang bang sauce. It’s magical, and you might just want to put this recipe on repeat. I did and I’m not mad about it.
And of course, it makes great chili – I highly recommend Family Friendly Chili,
Or try Wahoo! White Chicken Chili if you’re in the mode to cozy up and watch some football. (Who else is excited to watch football? It’s the little things!)
Do you use your Wahoo! Chili Seasoning for something other than chili? Let me know!
