Combining three of my favorite foods: chocolate, meat and Smokin' Mary. There are over 40 variations of this traditional South American dish and the majority do not include chocolate. However, the addition of this sweet additive has made this complex sauce popularity in the United States. Smokin' Mary's recipe gives you a good taste of a classic dish you can make at home!

Serve with warm tortillas while enjoying a Smokin' Maria cocktail. Cheers!
Smokin' Mary goes well with chili, it's a natural pairing. We have a lot of variations of chili featuring our award winning mix. But the one that takes the cake is our meaty chili. It should just be called meat meat meat, but that might get confusing. So we spelled it out for you. If you like meat as much as we do, this is the chili for you!

There is nothing better than combining dinner and drinks, especially when you can do it all in one pot. We took direction from Julia Child on cooking a good meal in the kitchen and added a little kick to this chili recipe. You can always opt out on that extra ingredient, but we think it adds just the right extra touch to make a unique, shareable chili concoction.
Loaded Bloody Mary Chili
In a large pot over medium heat, add some olive oil and sauté the celery and onions until soft. Add the garlic and stir, then add the ground beef. Cook until browned, 5 to 10 minutes; drain off the excess fat. Stir in the chili powder, cumin and oregano.
Add the Bloody Mary mix, vodka (if using), Montreal steak seasoning, Tabasco and Worcestershire to the pot. Stir. Add the kidney and pinto beans, stir together well, cover and then reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Add more Smokin' Mary mix or water if needed during simmering.
There is something to be said with prepping dinner after breakfast and coming home to a fully cooked meal, infusing the house with the savory essence of home cooking. Just add a loaf of crusty bread and your dinner is complete. This was a staple meal in our household, but we didn't have Smokin' Mary Bloody Mary Mix. This is a kicked-up version of a Midwest classic.
Smokin' Pot Roast
Brown the meat on each side in the bacon fat. Add the veggies at the last 90 min to avoid overcooking them.
Place meat and liquids in slow cooker or Dutch oven. Cook over medium heat for 3 -4 hours depending on size of roast.
The roast is ready when it is falling apart and tender.
When my husband and I were asked what we wanted for our wedding dinner, both of us said in unison "pulled pork"! Unfortunately, Smokin' Mary Bloody Mary Mix was just a twinkle, so ours wasn't as smokin' as this recipe, but it's equally appropriate for any occasion, even a back yard wedding.
Smokin' Mary Pulled Pork
In a air tight bag (FoodSaver/Ziploc) place the roast and the Smokin' Mary Mix , seal and then put in fridge for 1 day.
Set smoker to 175 degrees.
Pull roast from bag and place onto smoker for 6-8 hrs.
Take mix and from bag, pour it into a medium sauce pan, add Bourbon, brown sugar, mustard, molasses and onions. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer and reduce to 1/2.
Cool, cover and place in fridge until later.
Once the roast reaches 190 degrees, remove it from smoker and let cool.
Shred roast; reheat sauce and then mix together.
If you want a killer pulled pork sandwich, serve on two waffles with bread and butter pickles, maple syrup and sharp cheddar cheese. Yum!

You will find Clams Casino in just about every restaurant in Rhode Island. Why you say?
According to legend, the recipe for clams casino was originally developed in 1917 in the Little Casino in Narragansett, Rhode Island, by a maître d'hôtel for a woman of means wanting something special for her guests. Good Housekeeping Great American Classics attributes the dish to Mrs. Paran Stevens and maître d'hôtel Julius Keller. She named the dish after the hotel, and word and popularity of the dish has since spread across the United States (From Wikipedia)
Well, we love Clams Casino, but of course have to Mary them up a little with Smokin' Mary Bloody Mary Mix. So here is our version of the classic "clams on the half shell" recipe kicked up a notch.
Smokin' Mary Clams Casino
Split open the clams over a bowl, being careful to save as much of the juice as possible. Remove the clam meat. Cut the clam meat in half. Return half of clam meat to each shell.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter. add onions and green pepper. Cook until tender. Add the reserved clam juice, Smokin’ Mary mix, parsley and bread crumbs. Mix well and set aside.
Place a teaspoon of the stuffing on top of the raw clam in each half shell. Top with bacon. Set the clam shells on a bed of rock satin a large shallow baking pan. Place pan in the middle of oven. Broil for 10 minutes, or until bacon is crisp. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
