Tex Mex Stuffing

Now that this former city girl has become accustomed to the Southwest flavors, that would have to include spicy food and red meat. I’ve probably shaved off a couple of years of my life thanks to my diet.

 

Stuffing is my numero uno Thanksgiving dish, so this holiday not only am I sharing with you my personal recipe, I’m also kicking it up a bit. Texas style. I used beef stock in place of chicken (because Texas = red meat, duh), jalapeño cheddar sausage, sliced jalapeños and added in chopped candied pecans for good measure.

 

Ingredients for Tex Mex Stuffing

 

-9 cups cubed bread, toasted or dried

-1 teaspoon olive oil

РAbout 13 ounces of jalape̱o cheese sausage (amount can vary)

– 2 Tablespoons butter

– 1 medium onion diced (about 1 and 1/4 cups diced)

– 2-3 stalks of celery diced or about 1 cup diced

– 1 teaspoon sage

– 1 teaspoon salt

– 1 teaspoon pepper

– 2 eggs, whisked

– 1 ¾ cups of beef broth

– A healthy sprinkle of rosemary

– Vegetable oil spray

РFresh Jalape̱os

 

 

To make your Tex Mex stuffing, place cubed bread on aluminum foil-lined pan and toast in oven. Set to broiler setting on low. Check every couple of minutes, turning over bread cubes with a serving spoon until they reach the firmness of crispy croutons. Remove from oven.
