Tailgate Idea: Salsa That Will Please

Tailgate Idea: Salsa That Will Please

When prepping for a tailgate, it’s always important to remember two things: the duration of your tailgate and how many people are in your group. Why? One, for the obvious reason of knowing how much to buy in regards to ingredients and two, to make dishes that are not complicated and can feed a big crowd.
We love dips here at The Daily Meal, so we’re very keen on the idea of a delicious salsa being passed around the parking lot before the game. Also, grilled corn — it's both affordable and prep efficient —makes for a hit. These two Mexican staples will certainly do the trick, no matter the crowd.

Chef Noe Alcala, executive chef of Hussong's Cantina & Taqueria at Mandalay Place in Las Vegas, is sharing tips and tricks for making a great salsa:

Tips and Ingredients:

* If you are starting from scratch, use fresh ingredients like tomatoes, peppers, onions, and garlic.

* When using a pre-prepared salsa, you can still add fresh ingredients to enhance the flavors.

* Fresh cilantro is a must, as it will add that final kick of flavor.

* Customize your salsa by adding lime juice, spices, extra pepper, grilled corn, or even fruit.

* Chips can range from a simple tortilla chip to Doritos or Fritos.

Note: If you have a premade salsa, jump to the last step and enhance it to fit your taste.
Dice ingredients. From here, it's your preference. You can grill it, boil it, or leave it raw. Just make sure all the ingredients have the same cooking method — if the salsa is grilled, make sure all of main ingredients are grilled (tomatoes, garlic, onions, and peppers). Next, you have the choice to either blend the ingredients or smash them for a chunkier texture. Once complete, feel free to add the extra ingredients that make the salsa your own.

Grilled Corn Street Style is a signature item at Hussong's Cantina, and is also one of the most simple to make.

Tips and Ingredients:

Corn: I prefer to use white sweet corn as it is tender with great flavor.

Butter: Any unsalted butter or substitute butter will work.

Mayonnaise: Your preference.
Cotija Cheese: A dry cheese that is easily accessible in most major stores.

Chile flakes: "Tajin" is a common and traditional brand of chile flakes from Mexico. It has a nice lime flavor and goes well with not only the corn, but is also tasty on margarita rims and sprinkled on fruit.


Remove the husk and cook the corn on a grill. If you don't have access to a grill, place the corn over the stove burners for a similar result. Mix in equal parts of mayonnaise and butter — 1 teaspoon of each should do. Spread some the mixture evenly over the corn. Sprinkle the grated cotija cheese. Top with chile flakes.

Score Big With Your Tailgate Party

by The Editors at, Updated September 14, 2011 | Comments: 0

With fall and football season in full swing, now’s the time for the all-American tradition of tailgate parties. What’s better than an alfresco meal in a busy parking lot to jump-start a winning day at the stadium?

Just about anything can go on a tailgate menu. Usually, there’s a grill involved — and oftentimes booze. But the pregame party is mostly about the camaraderie of sports fans who are gearing up for kickoff.

You can never do too much advance planning when you entertain outside your home. Here are some helpful tips on creating a perfect tailgate party, and some great portable recipes to fuel up on before the big game.

Check and double-check. Don’t leave anything to chance: Make a list of everything you want to bring (think bottle openers, paper goods, garbage bags, matches or lighters, grilling tools, sunblock, hand wipes, plenty of water, serving utensils, supplies to wrap up leftovers). If you tailgate regularly, you may want to laminate the list and check things off with a dry erase marker.

Keep cool. You can never have too much ice when it comes to keeping drinks cold and food chilled. Invest in a big, sturdy cooler. Better yet, get two (one for beverages, one for food), and bring an extra bag or two of cubes for replenishing. Remember that you’ll need to keep leftovers cool while you’re all watching the game.

Don't forget the foil. For one thing, you can use it to line the grill. This makes cleanup faster, and you can wrap up the used charcoal for easy disposal.

Share the load. Tailgating is much more fun with a group, and potluck is the way to go. Create a menu and assign recipes to your friends — that way, the burden isn’t all on you.

Bring the right gear. Make sure you have enough folding chairs, and unless you have the kind of trunk that can function as a serving spot, you’ll want to bring a folding table to hold all the chow. If you’re a frequent tailgater, you may want to invest in a pop-up canopy, which is great to shelter you and your fellow fans from heat or rain.

And now on to the most important part — the food! Here are some classic tailgate dishes, though anything that can stand up to transportation is potential game-time fare.

Oven-Barbecued Chicken Wings — These are a healthier take on one of the greatest pregame appetizers ever.

Quesadillas With Salsa Mexicana — Grill these up in the parking lot, or simply make them ahead of time, wrap them in foil and reheat them on the grill. Make some extra salsa and bring along a bag of chips.

Texas “Chili Queen” Chili — It’s hard to top chili as a warming main dish in a bowl — unless you top it with cheese, scallions and sour cream.

Juicy Beef Skewers With Horseradish Dip — Kebabs and skewers are another popular tailgating food, easy to eat while standing around, and you can skewer up everything at home, then grill them at the game.

Hummus — A good dip is a perfect appetizer for your friends to dig into while you’re getting the rest of the food ready. This classic Middle Eastern chickpea dip is packed with flavor and protein, and not a whole lot of fat.

Pulled Chicken Barbecue on Beer Bread With Pickled Cucumbers — You can certainly make all of the components of this appealing sandwich yourself, or you can rely on store-bought ingredients to put together these delicious sandwiches if grilling isn’t part of your tailgating plan.

All-American Chocolate Chip Cookies — There’s no better way to end a successful tailgate than with this classic cookie.
