Scott and Company Family Favorite Tailgating Recipes

Beaufort Stew

By: Michael Slapnik, Member – Scott and Company

“Our favorite is probably a Beaufort stew, especially for the cold weather games.  It is so easy as you basically just boil corn on the cob, red potatoes, sausage, and shrimp in a big pot with a ton of Old Bay seasoning. Then you just need some butter for the corn and potatoes and cocktail sauce for the shrimp once it’s all done cooking!”

Smoked Queso Dip

by: Viktoria Izakova, In Charge – Scott and Company

Viktoria says this *Smoked Queso Dip recipe is pretty good to eat whether tailgating or not. In advance brown chorizo, ground beef, or turkey (she prefers chorizo or ground turkey). Add the cooked meat to a disposable foil pan with fresh diced pickled jalapeno, diced onions (white or yellow), minced garlic, Rotel canned tomatoes with green chili – if you like spicy, and cubed Velveeta and Pepper Jack cheese. Preheat grill to 200-250 degrees and place the queso dip mixture on and let it cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn on the bottom. Serve with tortilla chips.

*For smoked dip use a pellet smoker.
