1 – Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili – “Set it and forget it” is how The Comfort of Cooking touts this super-flavorful chili recipe that you can do ahead in your slow cooker. Serve over rice or with nacho chips and a dollop of sour cream!

2 – Tex Mex Salsa – What a mix of fresh flavors! Skinny Ms. gives us 2 methods: simply pulsing the fresh ingredients in a food processor, or cooking them in a slow cooker. Either way, chill this salsa in the fridge till serving time.

3 – Vegetarian Nachos with Guacamole – Talk about irresistible! Cookout guests will be digging into this mix of crunchy nachos and chunky filling/dip, thanks to this recipe from Taste.com.

4 – Slow Cooker Beef Brisket Tacos – Here’s a “Tex” contribution to the party fare, courtesy of The Spice Kit Recipes. Tender, shredded, smokey, beef brisket tacos seasoned with their very own Mexican Spice Kit!

5 – Chicken Chimichangas – Follow the recipe from Cook’s Country that has the chicken and rice mix simmered in chipotle broth, then wrapped in a clever fold-wrap (no filling spilling out!).

6 – Dulce de Leche Paletas – Must get some sweetness in there! And these homemade ice pops from Girlichef are a great choice, made with canned condensed milk, cinnamon, and vanilla bean.

7 – Churros – How could we skip these crunchy, sugar and cinnamon-dusted Spanish/Mexican treats? Thanks to this recipe from Food Network, you can whip some up for your cookout. Yum!
