Southwestern Beef Stew

Southwestern Beef Stew served in tiny bread bowls is the perfect dish to serve at your college bowl game party.

Pace Salsa at Walmart

These mini bread bowls of Southwestern Beef Stew have a kick to them, thanks to Pace® Salsa Medium from Walmart. They are the perfect size to serve at a party and are hearty enough to keep football fans happy while they enjoy the game.

They’re also perfect for New Year’s Eve parties because they’re warm and delicious — just what guests want on a cold winter night.

I love using Pace® Salsa in recipes because it can be an ingredient or a condiment. I grew up eating Pace® Salsa — with a variety of textures and heat levels, there is a combination perfect for any gathering.

Mini Bread Bowls

I picked up these dinner rolls while at Walmart — they’re the perfect size for mini bread bowls. Use a bread knife to cut off the tops, then hollow out the inside.
