Snow Bird Trip Prep

WOW! It has been a while since my last post . . . I am in charge of a majority of the cooking this year for Eddies Family Reunion up at Snow Bird Ski Resort this year and this blog has been a HUGE inspiration when trying to figure out the menu

There will Probably be about 50+ people (maybe even 100) from Eddies Grandmas Side of the family but luckily it is just the "immediate" family I will be cooking for . . . that's still almost 20 people to feed lol including friends and g/fs etc.

We are heading up the hill tomorrow so today I have been prepping sauces and dips for us to enjoy through out the week. Here's what I've made so far

 Enchilada Sauce
 We are going to be using this for Eddie's Favorite Colorado Burritos and maybe enchiladas too later in the week depending on the left over situation

3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp flour
1/4 cup chili powder
2 cups chicken stock or Broth (both work)
15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1) In a saucepan combine oil and flour over medium heat for about 1 minute
2) Stir in chili powder
3) Mix in stock, tomato paste, oregano, and cumin
4) Bring to a boil
5) Reduce heat to low and cook for 15 minute

Copy Cat Wingers Wing Sauce
The whole fam is OBSESSED with wings so we are bringing up the deep fryer so even while away the boys can get their wing fix in -- ironically one of the bars up here has the BEST wings but you have to be 21+ to get in and a majority that we have are under . . .

1 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Franks Hot Sauce

Heat ingredients together until sugar is fully dissolved

Homemade Salsa
We can't go anywhere without my homemade Salsa . . . I ran out last year so I made 4 batches this year . . . lets see how long it lasts

28oz can of tomatoes drained
2 whole jalapenos with seeds
1/4 of an onion
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons lime juice
Trade Joe's Smoked Ghost Chilies

Throw all the ingredients in the blender or food processor and blend - When serving Top with a few twists of the Trader Joe's Ghost Chili

Rosemary Cannellini Dip
If you haven't made this yet . . . you need to! It's like a hummus but a little more think and creamy - goes great on bread or pretzels

1 can of Cannellini or white beans (drained
Juice of 1/2 a lemon (1 1/2 tbsp)
2 tsp rosemary
1 clove of garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

In a food processor mix everything together
