LOVE LOVE LOVE the honey chipotle salsa you were sampling in Whole Foods/Houston on Kirby!

We inhaled it last night and will go back today for more.

 We also downloaded your cookbook and will be cooking and ordering more.

You are a genius!!! …love the story of your cooking it for three years in your back yard!

Thanks so much!

Amy, Houston

My friends picked up your salsa on Sunday at the Whole Foods in downtown Austin. I wasn't involved in picking it up off the shelf so I'm not sure how that decision was made -- but I can tell you that I would not shut up about how much I liked it as soon as I tried some.

We actually finished the jar by the end of the night -- it is SO YUMMY. There were about 10 of us, and we were all equally obsessed.

We looked you up then and there and I made my order first thing this morning.

Alexis, New York

(Our salsa may not be from New York City, but some of our great customers are!)

Wow, this salsa is so unique with all these flavors bursting forth! Our customers love it! Thanks so much!

Winery On The Gruene

You gave me a sample of your salsa and ever since I have been craving more. I absolutely love your salsa.

Jon, San Antonio

Your salsa is incredible!!!!! I honestly love it!!

New Recipes

Texas Brew Cheesy Meatloaf
With Cream Sauce

Serves 4

1 cup Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa, Mild, Medium or Hot (Mild for mellow flavor)
11/2 lb ground beef (leaner is better)
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup quick oats or dry bread crumbs
4 Havarti cheese slices (Cheese of your choice such as Pepper Jack, Monterey Jack, Co-Jack)
3 to 4 slices of fried and blotted bacon, halved (excellent way to portion slices)
Texas Brew Cream Sauce (optional, excellent either way, see recipe below)

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients except bacon in a large bowl and mix well.
* Add bacon crumbles to the mix for a bit of a twist.

Place mixture in an ungreased loaf pan or shape into a loaf in an ungreased baking pan. Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until no pink remains at the center of the meatloaf.
* If using a meat thermometer, the internal temp should be 160 degrees for optimum safety.

Remove from pan & put on oven proof plate. Overlap cheese slices on top of meatloaf. Place back in warm oven until cheese melts.

Remove from oven and cover liberally with Texas Brew Cream Sauce. Lay bacon slices (or crumble bacon and sprinkle) on top of melted cheese. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice. Grilled asparagus or frozen (preferably organic) green beans seasoned with a no salt seasoning and stir fried in olive oil.
* Fresh sliced tomatoes make a fine accompaniment.

Texas Brew Cream Sauce
4 T. Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa Mild, Medium or Hot
* Use mild for a more mellow flavor

1 cup heavy cream
* can substitute half & half

Pour 1 cup of heavy cream into a small warm skillet. Add Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa and bring to a fast simmer. Turn heat down to a low simmer for two minutes or until reduced and flavors have mixed well. Do not overcook. You may add crumbled flash fried cilantro leaves to the sauce.
* Pour over Texas Brew Cheesy Meatloaf for an extra bit of spice and flavor.

Note: Shape mixture into hamburgers and grill until done. Drizzle with Texas Brew Cream Sauce. Add your favorite cheese and melt. Serve on a grilled bun with your favorite condiments. Add sauteed onions, mushrooms, or bacon for a bit of extra Texas oomph!
