Hi, SJ Friends!  Since our last post, we've had some exciting things going on here at Spanish Jack's!  One of our dear SJ friends, Connie, has been using our products to spice up everything from chicken sliders to deviled eggs.  She has provided us with photos of each dish, along with detailed recipes.  Wow - they all look so good!  We're working on publishing an e-recipe book very soon - and we'll make that available to all our friends.  Stay tuned!

New Recipe: Rub Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Cranberry Dip

by Barbara Fuente on 08/19/12

Just when you think it's safe to put your SJ products back into the cabinet, along comes another amazing use for them!  (It's all part of the marketing strategy, you know...)  We've come up with this great recipe for roasted sweet potatoes spiced up with SJ Red Devil Rub AND the perfect dipping sauce blending SJ Cranberry grilling sauce with sour cream!  Start cooking!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  • 5 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Red Devil Rub (medium or hot)

Place the cut sweet potatoes into a baggie and add olive oil.  Seal bag and shake to be sure all potatoes are coated.  Spread out onto a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam.  Pop into the oven at 450 degrees and roast for about 20 minutes - checking every 10 minutes and turning until sweet potatoes are cooked through, browning and becoming crispy.  During the last 5 minutes of cooking, sprinkle Red Devil Rub onto the sweet potatoes - making sure to coat well. 

To make the dip, mix 1/3 cup of Cranberry Grilling Sauce & Marinade into 1 cup of sour cream.  Add a pinch of salt to taste - mix well, top off with a sprinkle of Red Devil Rub and serve with hot, spicy Rub Roasted Sweet Potatoes for a perfect side dish to any meal.  Check out photos on the Spanish Jack's Facebook page - mmmmmm!  Viva la Spanish Red Devil! 

New Recipe: Jack's Tater Salad

by Barbara Fuente on 05/28/12

Memorial Day provided SJ's with plenty of recipe building time, so we tried out this recipe for a FANTASTIC mustard potato salad that got rave reviews at the family gathering!  Buy it, try it, take a picture and send us your testimonial at info@spanishjacks.com!  (SJ Friend Alex of Tulsa said, "That potato salad was amazing!")

  • 5 lbs. russet potatoes
  • 1 dozen eggs (hard boiled and cut into large pieces)
  • 1 jar Spanish Jack's Mustard Barbeque Sauce
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 sweet onion (diced)
  • 1/3 cup dill pickle relish
  • salt, pepper & paprika to taste
  • parsley or dill for garnish

Boil potatoes until soft - 30-45 minutes.  Set aside and let cool, slightly.  Bring eggs to boil in a separate pan - once boiling, cover and take from heat for 20 minutes.  Set aside and let cool.

When potatoes have cooled just enough to handle, peel and cut them into cubes.  (You want them warm so they absorb the flavor!)  Place in a plastic 9 x 13 pan (or similar size) - drizzle one jar of Spanish Jack's Mustard Barbeque Sauce over the potatoes.  Put in the refrigerator for 12 - 24 hours - gently stir a couple of times while marinating.

When it's time to assemble the salad (2 hours before serving) - put marinated potatoes into a large bowl.   In separate smaller bowl, mix mayonnaise or Miracle Whip, diced onions, relish and vinegar together.  Pour this over the potatoes and gently toss.  Add eggs and gently toss again to mix flavors. 

Let set for at least 2 hours to let the flavors blend.  Place into serving bowl, sprinkle paprika lightly on top and garnish with sprigs of fresh dill or parsley.


Recipe - SJ Friend Cheryl's Coffee BBQ Chili

by Barbara Fuente on 10/13/10

Thank you Cheryl, for sending in your recipe for Chili using Spanish Jack's Coffee Barbeque sauce!  She says this simple, tasty recipe was a real crowd-pleaser - with not one bite left by the time the family had served up! 

  • 1 pound hamburger, cooked & crumbled
  • 1 bag northern beans, soaked overnight
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 package original chili spices (like Williams)
  • 1 jar Spanish Jack's Coffee BBQ Sauce (medium or hot)

Bring to simmer in large pan and cook until beans are softened and spices have blended.  Serve up as a three-way over pasta and topped with cheese, onions and jalepenos - or over corn chips for a super chili pie!
