I love everything about summer time. The hot weather, the sunshine and an endless supply of pool floats. These are the basics for an amazing day at the pool. One of the things I struggle with though, is what to serve the kids without spending too much time in the kitchen.
The perfect poolside finger food menu is simple, easy to prepare in advance and can be plated in a moment’s notice. This recipe combines several of my favorite things: RO*TEL®, Taco Tuesday and avocados.
Not much is easier than a taco party, served up poolside.
Let’s Get the Party Started
I don’t like leaving a lot of food outside while we are swimming. This spicy taco meat recipe combines a majority of the ingredients without the need for a lot of prep work. It can also be easy covered and taken back inside when no one is snacking.
Spicy Taco Filling
2 lbs. hamburger meat
1/2 small onion
1/2 can of RO*TEL® (if you like it spicy, feel free to dump in the whole can)
1/2 can of Hunt’s® Diced Tomatoes
3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 cups of pepper jack cheese
Add the hamburger meat to a pan and add the onion. While it is cooking toss the RO*TEL® and the tomatoes into a blender. Pulse to your desired consistency.
Once the meat and onion are almost cooked through, toss in the worcestershire and soy sauce and add the pureed RO*TEL® and Hunt’s® tomatoes. Allow to simmer until combined and mixture is thick.
At this point you can cool it down and then put it in the fridge for a few days until you are ready to serve. When you warm it back up, add the cheese and stir until the cheese is completely melted into the mixture.
Plate with tortillas, chips, avocados, spicy peppers on a serving tray. Serve poolside. No one has to waste time with the prep work of a complete taco bar, as everything is already inside the taco!
I am even taking this recipe with me this week when we are on the beach and serving it as a dip for when the kids decide to stop playing in the sand. Who says that recipes for serving a crowd have to be hard! For more summer inspiration on how to #ServeUpSummer check this out and make sure to stock up on supplies at your local Wal-Mart.
