Once the grill gets fired up, some people are happy to eat only burgers all summer long. I’m not one of them. Don’t get me wrong—I love some good hamburger recipes, but ground beef can do so much more than hang out on a bun. I like to mix it up with taco salad, foil-pack stuffed peppers, BBQ meatballs, totchos and more. But each of these recipes is burger-level easy—all are ready in under an hour with 35 minutes of prep or less. So get ready to take your summer cooking to new ground.
Is it weird that I do a happy dance whenever my grocery store stocks a new, unusual product? (Probably. We’ll pretend I didn’t mention that.) I’m an adventurous eater, and that’s a trait I’d LOVE to pass on to my kidlets…someday. Hopefully. It’s a work in progress!

One of the things I look forward to every year is tailgating with my friends and family. Most people love tailgating because of football, but I love it for the tailgating recipes. In fact, I don’t pay attention to anything but the food! Who doesn’t enjoy wings, potato skins and nachos? One appetizer I have grown to love is beer cheese—and I’m not even a beer lover. It’s the flavor that draws me in, and with the right cheese and the right beer, you can even make a dish as amazing as these Steak and Jalapeño Cheese Tailgate Nachos.
