Today for review I received some spices along with some dips to try out. The company that sent them is called Chef-it-Up. Founded by three brilliant men, they created some great tasting products and seasonings so I was eager to get started.

Well having a Spanish husband I use alot of Adobe seasoning so I was really interested in trying a new one. So for this gourmet spice I made for dinner (Fri) some rice and black beans. 

The seasoning had a really great blend of spices to it, alot better tasting than what I usually use. I compared the two products side by side, and Chef-it-Up actually had the better ingredients. The rice was a big hit. So I think I will be switching my Adobe seasoning. For a appetizer this night I decided to make some dip with the Chipotle dip the company sent.

 I made homemade chips and the dip. Very easy to use, just add the mix to some sour cream and mayo, place in the fridge for one hour and you have a great dip. I topped the dip with some chopped cilantro, I also used the Jalapeno/Habanero dip and served that with some celery sticks.

 This dip also was easy to put together, add the same ingredients, sour cream and mayo and you have a intense flavorful dip. Dinner done, and a success.

Now on the next evening meal (Sat), I made some Ribs using the BBQ seasoning. I did not use any sauce for the ribs, just coated them with the seasoning as a dry rub, and wow. 

They were fantastic tasting. You get a touch of heat with a touch of sweet. Really great balance in the spices. For dessert that evening I decided to use the Butterscotch apple dip.

 Again easy to whip up, with some whip topping and whipped cream cheese. Stir, chill and ready to use. I cut up some red apple slices, and green apple slices and dipped away. Tasted just like a caramel apples.

Finally the weekend was winding down and I went for dinner on (Sun), with Chili and Beet tips. Along with some spinach dill dip for a appy. 

To start off the course I made a big bowl of chili with my new product. Again the Chili Mix was easy to use. I added it to my chili recipe, and I needed no other spices.

 What's also nice is that on each dip packet, or mix packet there is a recipe on the back. Next I made some tri-tips (steak) with the Chef-it-up steak seasoning. I coated the steak and let it sit for twenty minutes before sauteing. Yum, I also did not need any other spice but this one. The tips were juicy and really good, with a nice balance of peppery flavor, For that's nights appy, I made some dip with the spinach dill dip, and some rye bread.

This to was easy to whip up with some sour cream and mayo. I opened the top of some round rye bread, hollowed it out and poured the dip inside. With the hollow part I cut it into cubes and used them for the dipping. The dip was a great favorite that night.

My family was definitely in culinary heaven this weekend.
