UH......TEXAS Pete? You DO know that isn't made in Texas, right..? I forget where it's produced (somewhere in the deep south, I think), but not in Texas!

Sort of like using Pace.... *ducking and running*

Yep, authentic tortilla chips and non-Americanized salsa with Alaskan Pale Ale beer. Oh man, getting hungry.

my husbands favorite beer snacks (he's also a fan of micro brews) are sardines and saltines, hot pork rinds, or chips and hot sauce. I like that stuff too, but also root beer floats, chips and hot sauce, chips and french onion dip, popcorn (we have one of those things you put a heating disk in, oil and stovetop popcorn) but you put it in the microwave instead of on the stove. Bowl of ice cream is good too. Since I'm trying to eat well, one of my favorite late night snacks is yogurt with wheat germ on it. Makes it crunchy

I think you are right, Cathy. Seems like it is made in...is it South Carolina...?

For all my true love of the hops, I do NOT like to drink beer when eating. Even if it is only "junk food." The taste of the one offsets the good effects of the other! At least IMHO!

Anyway, I concur with the saltines and sardines fer shore (very alliterative, huh? ). A can of VI-eeners aint bad neither!

An authentic Texas product that is really growing on me is the Dublin, Tx Dr. Pepper with real cane sugar.



Look I even got the Texas road in the background

Whatever I have on hand when I get the munchies. Peanut Butter (Jiff Rules) is the best thing I've found to satisfy other than hot sauce (salsa) when I seem to be craving something. I like to put peanut butter on crackers or white bread or sometimes, just a big spoonful of it! Of course like I said hot sauce (this is what I call salsa, I'm not talking about the red sauce like tabasco, etc.) is King to kill the cravings. Sometimes I like to take some corn tortillas (Tia Rosa's are the best to me) and warm them up in the microwave, spread butter on them (it melts quickly), roll them up (make a little fold over at the bottom of roll to hold the sauce in) and pour hot sauce down them. This is the best! Now I'm hungry!

Walmart used to sell a hot sauce that was made in Paris, Texas (I think it was called Texas Best) and it was the best. Then the company moved or went bankrupt or something happened, whatever, Walmart doesn't carry it anymore. So I make my own. I can't stand Pace. It tastes like they've taken tomato PASTE for God's sake and watered it down and added all the other junk. Ugh! I'm with Belle here, there's way better options!

I like pork skins and while I know this isn't common (just happened on it because I didn't have any tortilla chips handy) I really like to scoop up hot sauce with them. Talk about snap, crackle, pop!! Haha, the cereal rice crispies has nothing on this!

Our microwave went out and my daughter said, well, we can't have popcorn now. I said, let me show you a trick! The microwave has been fixed, but I'm still using the stove top. I had forgotten how good it was popped this way. We had just gotten into buying the microwave popcorn (thought it was so neat when all of this came out years ago) and had completely forgot about how we use to pop it. I had a big box of microwave popcorn that I had bought at Sam's and I gave it away. No way am I going back to it.

Sometimes just a bag of potato chips, a can of shoestring potatoes or some nuts (peanuts, cashews, etc.) Cheese and crackers or split a hoagie bun and smear it with butter, top with grated cheese and melt under the broiler. Umm, good!

Reb, what is wrong with you? This is January, the month of good resolutions, the TV ads showing all the Slimfast commercials, the exercise equipment, etc. People trying to take off the extra holiday weight they packed on and spring right around the corner.... swimsuit time!!! And now, I've got the munchies!!! Whatever ARE you thinking!
