Yes, as I write this post I am home, but as you are reading it….I am in Cozumel enjoying my powerboat beach escape! 😉
This is our final week of the Made with Love Giveaway. I have thoroughly enjoyed this giveaway and I have also enjoyed the spice blends! My intentions are to try the chocolate one soon but I just did not have a chance to do so before we left our trip. Since I am not here to announce who the winners are with Val, I need you to pop on over to her blog at More than Burnt Toast to see who last week’s winners are! I also want to thank Val for the awesome partnership we shared in this venture. I had a lot of fun and hope to have more great experiences with her in the future!
Over the last 6 weeks Val and I have brought you recipes we have created with the spice blends. For a recap of these recipies – Val has made Creamy Asparagus Soup made with Daring Dill Spice Blend, Mediterrian Pasta Salad made with Pesto Garlic Spice Blend and Fire Seared Antipasto Salad made with Red Pepper Spice Blend I made Grilled Shrimp made with Red Pepper Spice Blend, Pasta Penne Prima Vera made with Prima Vera Spice Blend, and today’s recipe for Nacho Cheese Sauce made with Jalapeno Root Spice Blend.
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
4 cups milk
12 oz velveeta, cubed
3 tablespoons Jalapeno Roots Spice Blend
Melt butter until bubbly. Whisk in flour. Gradually add milk to make a roux. Cook until slightly thickened. Add Velveeta and Jalapeno Roots Spice Blend. Keep warm – sever with your favorite chips and veggies as a dip or use on Nacho’s like we did!

Description of the spices you can win:
Daring Dill Spice Blend
Daring Dill is truly our most sophisticated Blend full of great dill flavour followed by a hint of fresh tomato and a hot mustard finish. Lovely on veggies, chicken or fish. Excellent for vinaigrette dressings and creamy sauces. Delightful!
Country Onion Spice Blend
Our Country Onion is a traditional mix of fresh garden herbs, caramelized onions and chives. An extremely versatile blend, great on poultry, meats or eggs, fabulous for potatoes and herbed rice.
