It is delicious and everyone is enjoying it! Going to chop some mango in the Pico next time. Definitely a great dish.

Do it, and report back, I usually put mango in the salsa for lighter dishes such as chicken or fish, but definitely try it! That's one of the reasons I love to cook, you can experiment, one small change can make a world of difference!

Still on the fence on my pork chops....I found some pork sausage in the freezer, and have some leftover Spanish rice...thinking I'll brown the sausage, mix into the rice, stuff the chops with it, but am thinking an adobo rub for the outside now due to using Spanish rice...then use toothpicks to hold it together, and pop 'em on the grill, slow and low due to the thickness.

Input is welcomed...

So since I got 0 input, I'm running with it.

Browned the sausage, with a splash of olive oil, added some chopped red onion I had in the fridge, along with some minced garlic. Then added some taco seasoning to the mix. Then put the spanish rice in. Tastes great, here's the result for the stuffing mix...

I made sloppy joes. But with this bomb mix from delgrosso. I'm not sure if it's available nationwide. The delgrossos are from the Altoona, PA area. They also own an amusement park. They make a great spaghetti sauce too.

Decided instead of using toothpicks, I would use a grill basket...

Alright, it's no gourmet dish, but if you like baked beans, beef, and beer - this recipe will be right up your ally.

Justin's Beer-B-Q Beans

1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tbsp soy sauce (I prefer low-sodium, but fully leaded works just fine too)
1/2 C BBQ sauce (I usually use Sweat Baby Ray's original
1 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
8oz can of pineapple tidbits, drained
1 28oz can of baked beans (original if you want the ingredients to do all the flavoring, or you can get whatever flavor of baked beans to add some flair - molasses, honey, etc)
1 lb of ground beef
2 beers (best not to use light beers, you want something a little more hoppy for the sweet flavor)

Brown the ground beef in a skillet with a pinch of salt and pepper. A couple minutes before the beef is fully browned, crack open one of your beers and drown the beef in it. Let it simmer a bit until the beef isn't pink anymore but don't let it sit too long or it will dry the beef out. Drain the fat and excess beer from the beef and mix it along with the rest of the ingredients (and that other beer) in a crock pot and let it cook on low for 6-8 hours. I usually double up the recipe and put it in a large 7 qt crock pot because trust me, it goes quick!

That's really all there is to it. Hope ya enjoy

Damn! I had to wipe my chin! This could turn out to be the best thread on the forum! Here I am at zero dark thirty, hungry as hell, with a busted grill!

It's okay because the mosquitoes would eat me alive!
